Protecting rescue teams and casualties during road accident rescues, Packexe SMASH holds glass in place, reducing the risk of injury from glass fragments and dust. Originally developed as a road accident extrication aid, Packexe SMASH is increasingly used by emergency services worldwide for glass management in a variety of situations, especially forced entry to buildings.Packexe SMASH makes vehicle extrication safer in 3 ways: Proven to strengthen glassTests undertaken by Exeter Advanced Technologies at the University of Exeter in July 2009 prove that the strength of glass is increased by approximately 42%, greatly reducing the risk of breakage under stress. No need to remove glass before cutting Once Packexe SMASH is applied, the glass is safe. This means that hydraulic cutting and spreading tools can be used to free casualties without the delay caused by prior glass removal. Safe glass removal In many rescue situations access to the casualty can be achieved most quickly by the removal of a single window or windscreen. If Packexe SMASH is applied first, the window can be broken and removed without danger.
