The Alpine Lite Stretcher maintains all of the features of the Alpine Steel Stretcher, but in an even lighter package, around a 30% weight saving.
It still has the longer, wider flat bed style, as well as the ability to be folded or split in half, for carrying to the casualty site and for storage.
The Mountain Rescue (MR) version has skid pan protection underneath. Both versions are fitted with high grade polyethylene on the skis, which prevents abrasion to the alloy.
Both the MR and the Civil Rescue (CR) come with lifting slings (MR – 2 metres, CR – 1.2 metres) which are used for winching and lifting/lowering as well as extra carry slings. There are locking pins on each side which must be engaged for vertical lifting and when sliding/sledging.
Carrying handles come as standard with the MR and can be ordered separately for the CR. Other accessories available include, Carry Slings, Stretcher Wheel.
Both the MR & the CR are supplied with a storage bag, which incorporates an outside pocket for inspection records.
The Alpine Lite Stretcher has been approved for winching by the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency.
Both the MR & CR will accept the fitting of carrying handles, these handles come as standard with the MR stretcher.
Both will accept the fitting of the SAR Stretcher wheel. The wheel must be ordered separately.
