We take the weight off your shoulders
Our cylinders feature non-limited life design (NLL). This means, by design they can be used indefinitely when proper maintenance and periodic inspections are fulfilled. It is an investment that not only gives you peace of mind during an incident, but also reduces your cost of ownership in the long run. They also offer a very low weight – which allows for a longer duration of air consumption. You can increase air supply even further by using a twinning option.
NEW: DRÄGER NANO CYLINDER (NLL), TYPE 4 Designed with PET liner and carbon nanotube technology: Currently one of the lightest gas cylinders in the market with a shell weight of 2.8 kg. This means 47 % less weight compared to conventional steel type 1 cylinders.
Reduced weight allows for two-cylinder configurations, supporting extended duration operations
Extreme weight reduction supports firefighters by reducing fatigue and increasing agility
Full composite cylinder can be used just like any other cylinder, but comes with a a non-limited service life decreasing fire departments investment needs
TWO-CYLINDER CONFIGURATION With their low profile, our dedicated twinpack cylinder systems are suited for wearing in confined space situations and extended duration operations (EDBA). A twin cylinder package with a convenient carrying handle can be carried as a single unit.

WEBER HYDRAULIK GMBH takes another step towards sustainability with the certification according to ISO 14001 and ISO 50001
Both compliance with environmental guidelines and the efficient use of energy contribute significantly to the sustainable orientation of companies. At the WEBER HYDRAULIK site in Losenstein, both certifications have now been successfully completed. “Sustainability is a very important topic for us. We are constantly working on optimizing our processes with regard to the set environmental and energy targets. The ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 certifications now show quite objectively that we meet very high requirements in this regard,” says Günther Rebhandl, Head of Quality Management at WEBER- HYDRAULIK, who is pleased with the success.
Proud of the certifications passed: Bernhard Obermayr, Mathias Pranzl, Albert Koppenberger, Günther Rebhandl, Kurt Sperrer
Environmental risks can be reduced through sustainable environmental and energy management. At the same time, environmental performance is made transparent and targeted improvement measures are devised. Lower consumption of resources such as energy and water, plus the reduction of disposal costs also offer an economic advantage over the competition in the long term.
Environmentally friendly energy and heating technology
At its site in the Enns Valley, the innovative manufacturer goes far beyond the required measures. Photovoltaic systems installed on the roof of the building provide clean electricity from solar energy. With an output of 364 kWp, part of the electricity used in production is self-generated. “The proportion of electricity requirements that can be covered by solar energy has been continuously increased in recent years,” explains Albert Koppenberger, who is responsible for plant maintenance at the Losenstein site.
The heating system is also powered by wood chips in an environmentally friendly manner. “Our entire heating requirements are covered by the wood chip heating system,” Koppenberger continues. This makes the Losenstein site independent of oil and gas.

E-mobility reduces CO2 emissions
In March 2019, it was discovered that transportation causes a large part of the CO2 pollution at the Losenstein site. “By using e-mobility for work trips, we saw great potential to reduce the site’s CO2 emissions. That was the starting signal for the e-mobility campaign,” says Koppenberger. An attractive leasing model for e-cars was worked out for employees at the Losenstein site. In the meantime, around 70 employees have taken advantage of the campaign. The electricity required for the e-cars also comes from the company’s own photovoltaic system. Employees can charge their vehicles free of charge at the 20 newly installed charging points.

Sustainability, environmental protection and quality
“Passing the certifications once again proves the consistently high quality orientation as well as the environmentally friendly and energy-efficient design of all processes in the company,” confirm Kurt Sperrer and Bernhard Obermayr as managing directors at the Losenstein site. “We are convinced that we can also offer our customers a decisive advantage with our sustainable orientation”.

That’s why we make certain that our search and rescue helmets and our fire helmets are state of the art. Tested in real-life scenarios, they are designed to be robust and durable yet extremely comfortable to wear. While every mission has its uncertainties, your head protection equipment shouldn’t be one of them. When you rely on head protection from Dräger, you know that all the concerns are taken care of.
The Dräger HPS® SafeGuard is the extremely lightweight universal helmet for fire and rescue services. Its innovative design combines optimal protection with the highest levels of wearing comfort. Its sporty look, light weight and tailor-made accessories make the helmet a real all-rounder for any challenge.

(CONDUCTED BY AN INDEPENDENT AND ACCREDITED TESTING ORGANIZATION)
Firefighters’ helmets must pass strict tests in accordance with the relevant standards before theyare approved for use. These scenarios are regularly repeated in Dräger’s own helmet laboratory for quality assurance purposes. It also conducts voluntary long-term tests to assess other factors.
HELMETS UNDER STRESS
Tests subject the firefighter’s helmets to various forms of stress to evaluate their ability to protect the wearer during use. This is shown by the examples from the testing procedures prescribed in accordance with DIN EN 443 (1 to 5). These especially simulate fire and mechanical impact. Such tests are conducted by an independent testing organization prior to approval. In addition, Dräger subjects its helmets to voluntary long-term tests (6 to 8). These evaluate aspects such as ergonomics and behavior in everyday use over the course of several years.
Testing in EN involves broader range of tests in comparison to other standards eg. lateral crushing, flame engulfment test, UV conditioning, retention system effectiveness and strength test etc.
Testing in EN requires higher values, eg. radiant heat, shock absorption, combined tests with radiant heat and mechanical impacts (shock and penetration) etc.
Testing in EN requires system testing including all accessories, eg. eye and face protection, neck protection, torches, communication etc. which have to fulfil all and same requirements as the helmet.

The Wilderness area is now being served by its own satellite fire station, which was officially opened on Friday, 17 September 2021.
Situated near the Caltex The Waves circle on the N2, the new station was built to serve the diverse fire and rescue needs of the area east of the Kaaimans River Bridge, which had until recently been addressed from the main fire station in the George CBD 14km away.
George Chief Fire Officer Neels Barnard said a satellite station in Wilderness had been a long-term goal of the department to cover the area’s fire and rescue risks more effectively. “We now have quick and easy access to the N2 for vehicle accidents and hazardous materials spills, the Wilderness beach and lakes for water incidents and rescues as well as significant fire risks such as fuel stations, hotels, dense vegetation and agricultural land.”
The Wilderness station is also the first in the southern Cape to be a double-storey facility with a fireman’s pole.
The 440sqm station comprises 348sqm bottom-floor space for vehicles and equipment and 92sqm above for staff quarters. It has three spaces for specialised vehicles including a major fire appliance, 4×4 off-road firefighting vehicle and a jetski, quadbike and rubber duck. The facility is manned around the clock by four firefighters.
“There are many advantages of having a fire station in an expanding and diverse community such as Wilderness and surrounds, including the much faster response times to road accidents and fires. Its location next to the Wilderness police station is ideal as there are several overlapping services and administration between the SAPS and municipal emergency services during and after an incident.
“The department is grateful to its Municipal Council for recognising the diverse fire and rescue needs that exist in the area and for supporting an ongoing programme to equip the Fire and Rescue department with specialised gear and facilities to continue protecting land and property.
“We also thank donors Peter Grindlay and Mikaila Hendrikz of Dotsure and Jenny Harding of Delightful Gardens for their contributions towards the interior design and beautifying of the Wilderness Fire Station,” said Mr Barnard.
At the official opening George Executive Mayor Alderman Leon van Wyk commended Mr Barnard and his department for their pursuit of excellence. “I am very proud of their hard work – their persistence in continuance expansion of capacity will pay off for decades to come,” said Ald van Wyk.
Wilderness is the municipality’s third satellite station in addition to Thembalethu and Uniondale.
On 8th September, the City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Service unveiled 19 new vehicles at the Epping Fire Station.
These vehicles will add value to the current capacity of Fire and Rescue Service fleet and will allow the fire services to respond to the increasing requests for assistance with fires and other related emergencies.
The Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith, attended the event.
The investment in the newly acquired fire vehicles by the City’s Safety and Security Directorate amounts to more than R81 million. The acquisition process which started several years ago will allow Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Service to expand its capability ahead of the summer months to deal with veld, industrial and residential fires.
“Our firemen and women work in extremely dangerous environments when called upon to extinguish fires. They need the best equipment to assist those in need, to protect lives, property and infrastructure. These vehicles will allow them to access mountainous terrain and will increase the response time. The City’s Fire Service often assists neighbouring municipalities when requested. The investment in these vehicles is an investment in the safety of our residents and the natural and built environment,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.
According to Station Commander F Munnik (Training Academy) and Platoon Commander W Moolman (Fleet), all of the vehicles have extensive off road capabilities with an advanced drive train to allow for accessing difficult terrain. In addition to the water storage capacity, some of the vehicles also have foam tanks on board for extinguishing certain fires in environments where using foam is required instead of the conventional medium of water.
The latest technology allows the operator to control the foam and water cannons from within the vehicle even while in transit, or from a remote console.
Among the new fleet, two are fully equipped heavy technical rescue vehicles that are fitted with a wide range of rescue devices and equipment that further enhance the capabilities of rescue teams, and compare favourably to similar vehicles in the United States and Europe. They will be deployed from Bellville and Roeland Street respectively and have been custom designed and built, on a 6×6 chassis, incorporating a vehicle mounted crane, several new items of equipment not available previously such as technical search devices.
The new vehicles are fully off-road capable to address the geographical challenges within the City.
The water tankers have improved off-road capabilities with larger capacities for carrying water and foam concentrate on remote controlled turrets.
On 30 September ETS Emergency Training Solutions (PTY) LTD will host their annual 2021 Competition for fire fighters.
“We look forward to the competition and hope that everyone will have an enjoyable day!” said the management and staff of ETS.
Throughout the year the participants have to keep their wits about them to beat the challenges they face in minimising emergency risks, and during the competition it is time to hone their skills against like-minded peers in a practical way. The course demands stamina, grit and determination from the contestants. The resident medic will be on duty to deal with any incidents on the day.
The Toughest Fire Team Event will see participants in full bunker gear transferring 20 wooden blocks from one stack to another using a hydraulic spreader; crawl through 3 x 250 ℓ drums wearing the SCBA harness and tanks (not face assembly); run and roll up a 65mm x 30m fire hose neatly; drag a stretcher with a 50kg dummy over a distance of 50m; drag a tyre over 50m; drag a 50kg wheeled extinguisher over a distance of 50m and extend a fully charged 65mm hose line as far as they can, before opening the nozzle and hitting a target with the water stream.
Due to risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, the Main Event will be on the fireground with scenarios that don’t require SCBA. The Individual Skills Event will involve specialised knots with a limited length of rope.
Participants can expect some surprises along the way with lots of trophies and gifts, so that no one goes home empty-handed.
