GSI’s RES-Q tube aids in rescue during a grain engulfment if a portion of the victim is above the grain and if the grain surrounding the victim is higher than the exposed portion of the victim. GSI’s RES-Q tube is made of a lightweight aluminum for ease of transport and use.
Prepare to Save: Lives. Time. Money. Peace of Mind.
A 60” tall, 27 pound shield is constructed to fit around the victim with 3 additional shields (30” diameter complete), to stop the flow of the grain toward the victim and block any additional pressure that may be created from rescuers. Once in place, the now limited amount of grain inside the tube is removed to free the victim.
