Drying cabinet for protective garments

 

PODAB has developed drying equipment for protective garments for many years. We were the first to develop and manufacture drying cabinets that, through their unique hangers, dry the heavy-duty garments from the inside and the outside at the same time. Our drying cabinet minimizes exposure of hazardous elements in the firefighter’s daily lives and the drying programs reduces wear and tear of the textiles and are customized for drying protective garments.

Adapted drying equipment

PODABs drying cabinet, FC 20, provides an optimal drying process for protective garments. We have adapted the drying programs so that functionality is ensured and wear and tear is minimized.

FC 20 has special hangers to dry the heavy-duty garments from both the inside and the outside. The drying process works without any mechanical action which prolongs the life span of the clothing.

Decorate after needs

FC 20 is equipped with 6 unique hangers that can dry up to six protective garments simultaneously. You can easily replace the hangers with special hangers for boots or gloves if needed. The drying cabinet’s construction is made so that hot air is led in through the hangers and dries the equipment both quickly and smoothly. 

It is also possible to attach a door mounted hook rack to the inside of the door for smaller textiles. 

Collaboration with Healthy Firefighters, Sweden

Our drying cabinet, FC 20, has been developed in close collaboration with Healthy Firefighters. It is an organization that is working on changing the routines during emergency response and the firefighters’ other work, to minimize exposure of hazardous substances. 

Optimal drying process

PODABs drying cabinet, FC 20, has a unique construction that dries the garments efficiently and gently. This means that all protective garments are ready to be used again within three to four hours. 

”In order for the routines to work and flow smoothly, the drying process must be quick. Otherwise, the risk increases that the procedures are not followed”, says Stefan Magnusson, one of the initiators of the Healthy Firefighters project.

"At the station, we use FC 20. We are very satisfied with the drying cabinet
because it makes the routines and the work-flow at the station as effective as possible.
The drying cabinet dries the garments fast which is vital to us. Otherwise, there
is a greater risk that the routines are not followed".
