The Gazelle Regular Basket Stretcher is an all-carbon-steel, MIG welded frame construction. It relies on its frame geometry, construction methods and materials for its’ ultimate strength.
The Gazelle Regular Basket Stretcher is designed to fill the gap, where the high-end basket stretchers are not required for users, either for their strength or for their durability.
The Gazelle Regular Basket Stretcher is made using a tubular, 19mm top frame as well as lower rails. This is in contrast to other models it competes with, where the lower frames are made of flat steel. The tubular runners are far stronger, and give a much longer life to these basket stretchers.
The Gazelle Regular Basket Stretcher is not specifically designed to perform in a technical rescue environment from a design perspective, however, they are more than capable of being used in a raise/lower operation in terms of strength.
Unique features include flat carbon steel patient-supports down the length of the stretcher. The High Density Polyethylene netting yet the allows water and air to easily pass through the patient compartment, small holes keep from snagging debris as easily. The High Density Polyethylene material will not rust and potentially cause additional harm to your patient, and they are attached with shock-cord so they will give-way when loads are improperly placed on it.
Tested to and beyond a 408 kg. (900 lb.) static threshold, users can be confident in their use of the Gazelle Regular Basket Stretcher.
