Extending its well-known GearGrid™ line of customizable, heavy-duty storage systems designed for fast drying, secure protection of fire and rescue operation gear and apparatus storage products, GearGrid Corporation recently announced the addition of its new Station Wagon™ line of products for transporting cylinders, hose and related equipment within the fire station and on apparatus. Designed by GearGrid Co-Owner and retired Assistant Fire Chief, Michael Boyer, the Station Wagon line of products specifically addresses both health and safety initiatives within today's fire service by minimizing lifting related incidents while ensuring proper and secure on-board storage of difficult to store items.
Constructed from heavy gauge steel tubing, the Station Wagon is designed to fit through standard doorways while maintaining a tight turning radius allowing for easy maneuvering within the station and on the fire ground. Removable storage baskets for cylinders (SCBA, SCUBA and oxygen), hose and other equipment are easily secured to the base unit with locking mechanism that can be easily loaded and deployed by one operator.
The system is designed to work in conjunction with on-board storage for fire apparatus creating an ideal storage platform for pull-out storage drawers. According to Bob Foht, Director of Sales and Marketing, "The Station Wagon system, much like the GearGrid Swing-Out Tool Boards, looks to maximize storage space by utilizing all areas within a fire truck's compartment."
GearGrid Corporation markets its GearGrid® line of high-performance storage equipment, all manufactured in its Forest Lake, Minnesota headquarters and production facility, throughout the world. It also provides specialized solutions, including custom wire forming and fabrication for display and POP applications and OEM components, to a variety of markets and manufacturers worldwide.
