The AlbacMat Emergency Rescue Mat has been designed with Safety, for both the rescuer and patient being of paramount importance.
First designed in 2002 for the Aged Care/Hospital markets, the AlbacMat Rescue Mat is widening its market appeal to include Defence, Emergency Services and Mining industries. Other markets are continually opening up.
How It Works
Simply, the AlbacMat is an Emergency rescue mat designed to slide over all types of surfaces. It is a stretcher like design, with polypropylene filling that when in storage is half the size of a rolled up sleeping bag. Constructed with heat-resistant material it is moved by a rescuer – enabling rescues to be performed as fast as physically possible. (See video at the bottom of this page.)
The AlbacMat has been designed with Safety, for both the rescuer and patient being of paramount importance.
The ability of the AlbacMat to travel easily over most surfaces - including stairs, carpet and concrete - allows for improved efficiency when evacuating a facility.
Single person operation
Evacuations can be performed by one person per patient in most situations which is essential when time is critical.
Use in any location
The AlbacMat is totally independent of its environment. It does not matter where the patient may be - in bed, the bathroom or the corridor, they can still be placed onto the AlbacMat and taken to safety.
Ready for instant use
Its compact, self-storage and lightweight design means it can be readily available in varying locations for instant usage.
