GForce Smoke Generators used in fire simulation exercise
Le Maitre’s GForce 1 and GForce 3 smoke generators have been used by Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in a multi-agency exercise.
More than 100 people took part in the simulation exercise in a University of the West of Scotland College. The scenario involved students being trapped as a result of a partial collapse after an explosion. The GForce machines were used to fill the building with realistic smoke. Speaking after the event, David Brown of Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said, “The smoke machines performed brilliantly on the day and they managed to smoke up a very long corridor with multiple rooms off it very successfully.”
With smoke output ranges of up to 51,000 cbm per hour, the GForce range of smoke generators provides a realistic, reduced visibility environment, producing huge amounts of dense white non-toxic smoke. This makes the smoke generators, combined with Le Maitre’s Industrial Smoke Fluid, the ideal choice for fire safety and breathing apparatus training.
The GForce Basic and GForce DMX are the entry level models in Le Maitre’s GForce range of high powered, continuous flow, water based smoke machines, based on the core technologies of G300.
It has continuous flow capability and is used with an additional remote control – either the Variflow which controls the amount of smoke produced, or the Varitime which not only controls the amount of smoke produced, but also the duration of the smoke burst (0-30 seconds) and the intervals (0-20 minutes).
