It’s an alarming fact. But sadly, it makes sense. Every day, firefighters are exposed to harmful toxins and contaminants that most people rarely come across. Fire, smoke, soot, and debris are just the beginning. They’re also breathing in volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It’s a life-threatening job, even after the fires are out.
Your job is to protect the health and well-being of your community. As well as your crew. Our job is to give you the tools and technology you need to help reduce the risks. Introducing our revolutionary Contaminant Containment & Management solutions and innovations.
Spartan’s Advanced Filtration System features a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, which can trap or filter out almost 100% (99.97%) of toxic particles and contaminants that are airborne in the cab. The filter is placed at the top of the back of the cab wall to not impede cab space.
Spartan’s Contaminant Containment & Management system includes an outside compartment to store the SCBA tanks and packs that is easily accessed but still shielded from the cab interior.
Treadplates can be covered with an easy-toclean finish with no stair nosing to catch debris and rolled edges for easy cleaning.
Our easy-to-clean liner covers the interior surfaces with a seamless material impervious to gases and liquids. Contaminants brought into the cab from boots or shed from PPE can easily be cleaned once the apparatus is back in the station. Gaps in materials where contaminants could hide are eliminated.
Spartan partnered with H.O. Bostrom to provide minimally seamed, zip-off seat covers with a foam block encapsulated barrier that reduces gas and liquid absorption. The seat covers are removeable and replaceable for deeper cleaning to remove any toxins that transfer from firefighters or their gear.
