Crofton to showcase latest fire training buildings, towers and aircraft fire simulators at the Emergency Services Show in September.
Crofton Engineering, the specialist fabricator and installer of fire training buildings and live fire simulators will showcase its most recent UK installations including its latest fire training towers and aircraft fire simulator on Stand K85 at The Emergency Services Show at the NEC, Birmingham, 20-21 September.
With renewed interest in high rise training after the Grenfell Tower fire, show visitors may be particularly interested in Crofton’s recent installations for Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service including the Basingstoke High Rise Tower, commissioned after the report into the incident at Shirley Towers in Southampton.
Crofton has also recently equipped the new Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service Lymm Safety Centre with a variety of equipment including a Specialist Rope Rescue Tower, as well as rope rescue, SWAH (Safe Work at Height), silo & roof ladder training at the service’s Penketh facility and a new training tower at Powey Lane. It is currently working on a new high rise tower and smoke house for Surrey Fire & Rescue Service at Fordbridge Road.
The company is currently fabricating and installing a new 3-storey 10-container CFBT (Compartment Fire Behaviour Training) Unit for live fire training for Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service’s new Joint Training Centre. The new installation includes an attack unit, window unit, a demonstration unit and timber storage unit.
Crofton recently constructed a fixed rescue training and firefighting (ARFF) trainer at Exeter Airport in partnership with FireBlast Global, the airport’s first purpose-built firefighting training simulator. Crofton project managed the construction and installation of the new simulator and manufactured the fuselage, tail, cradle and steps. The trainer will enable the airport to carry out a wide range of live fire aircraft simulations and features a wide wing on one side with jet engine simulator, and a narrow wing and propeller engine simulator on the other side.
Standard and bespoke designs for all aspects of emergency services’ training from Crofton Engineering include: traditional ladder drills, rope rescue, safe working at height, breathing apparatus, urban search and rescue, aircraft and ship simulators. All can be specified incorporating hot and cold smoke, carbonaceous fires and LPG technologies.
