GSI makes safety a top priority. Over 40 grain entrapments happen every year and GSI’s Res-Q-Tube can aid in rescuing victims engulfed in grain.
Historically 70% of grain entrapments happened on-farm, however, in 2011, commercial grain facilities saw 74% of the incidents. This shift in accidents makes it extremely important for farmers, grain elevator operators, and fire and rescue teams to be prepared in the event of a grain engulfment and have a Res-Q-Tube on hand, whether at a commercial or farm facility.
|Shield Weight||27 lb. (per panel)|
|Number of Shield Panels||4|
A 60” (1.52 m) tall, 27 pound shield is constructed to fit around the victim with 3 additional shields (30” (.76 m) diameter complete), to stop the flow of the grain toward the victim. GSI’s Res-Q-Tube is built of lightweight aluminum, so it is easy for rescuers to transport and maneuver.
