The AlbacMat is a flexible stretcher that can be used in an emergency to evacuate immobile people from such places as nursing homes, hospitals, airplanes, trains, pubs, clubs, schools and hotels in the event of a fire or similar emergency.
Constructed from a light weight supported vinyl sheet bonded to a polycarbonate flexible board, the AlbacMat can glide over most types of surface including carpet, vinyl, concrete, bitumen and grass without building up heat. Three velcro straps restrain the individual while a foot pocket secures the feet.
Under Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations, all persons responsible for using this equipment must receive the correct training. To meet this requirement staff should be trained only by a competent person, who has undergone an approved “train-the-trainer” course.
