The StabiLift is a rescue tool which has been developed in conjunction with The Swedish Rescue Services Agency Training School. SRSA required a tool which could be used to prop up cars that had been involved in road accidents whilst emergency personnel were working to free the car's occupants.The StabiLift is more than just a support prop, it can also be used as a lifting device.
Thanks to the The StabiLift´s construction, it can be made to lift and take increased load during the rescue as circumstances require.
A number of accessories come with The StabiLift:
The StabiLift has a number of advantages e.g.
SPECIALIZED PERSONNEL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
Tempest Fire specializing in a verity of PPE. What is personal protective equipment?
Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, or coveralls, vests and full body suits.
What can be done to ensure proper use of personal protective equipment?
All personal protective equipment should be safely designed and constructed, and should be maintained in a clean and reliable fashion. It should fit comfortably, encouraging worker use. If the personal protective equipment does not fit properly, it can make the difference between being safely covered or dangerously exposed. When engineering, work practice, and administrative controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, employers must provide personal protective equipment to their workers and ensure its proper use. Employers are also required to train each worker required to use personal protective equipment to know:

TAKING CARE OF YOUR THATCHED ROOF
The use of thatch as a roofing material can be traced as far as The Bronze Age. Thatching is a craft that is traditionally handed down from father to son, taking many years to perfect. It is not normally taught in other ways.
We have no thatchers’ guild or certification system in this country as they do in Europe. The thatching used on modern homes in South Africa did not only arise from traditional African thatching, but was imported through colonization, from Europe, notably Germany, Holland and England. Dutch settlers in the Cape even brought their own grass until they saw how good the raw materials were here.
Most thatchers have a ‘team leader’ or senior thatcher who has been working in the Industry for around 20 years and mentors and trains junior thatchers. It takes at least 5 years to train a thatcher up to a level that he would be considered a master thatcher overseas.
SANS 10407:2006 (Edition 1.1) (Thatched Roof Construction Specification)
A thatched roof can give residents a lot of pleasure and comfort, provided that it is installed correctly. The SANS 10407:2006 specification stipulate the minimum requirements for thatched roofs.
Thatching makes use of materials that are naturally available. There are coarse varieties of grass, with stalk thicknesses greater than 4mm that are not considered suitable for thatching. Natal thatching grass has a finer texture than the Transvaal grass when laid and is often preferred for this reason. The stalks of thatching grass are normally hollow and about 3 mm thick. Dekriet stalks, however, are solid and about 3-
A thatched roof will normally last for about 25 years if properly laid. Dekriet will typically last a little longer, up to 35 years. A thatch roof ridge requires renewal every 4-
Managing the lifespan of a thatched roof is about controlling moisture content and temperature. Humid areas, the least highly indicated for thatching, may entail more maintenance.
Care of Thatch
Good thatch will not require frequent maintenance -
A patterned ridge is not more durable than a ridge finished flush with the main coat -
Lightning conductors should be installed to protect the thatched buildings in accordance with the SABS Code of Practice -
