Secours Expo is the annual summit for the heroes of the rescue services in France. The event is visited by all types of professions such as doctors, nurses, firefighters and rescue workers.

Organised by medical care professionals, the show aims to provide a comprehensive overview of medical care and emergency rescue. The patient is the focus of the event and the goal is to join the rescue community together to communicate, inform, discover and share their experiences.

Car manufacturer Renault have been industry leaders for R&D focused around making their vehicles safer for access and extrication. To demonstrate this, they are conducting vehicle extrication procedures live at Secours Expo with the help of the Yvelines Fire and Rescue Department (SDIS76). Also featured in the demonstration is Holmatro cutting equipment and the Packexe Smash glass management system.

Packexe is very happy to be working with Renault at the event, as the demonstrations are utilising the best in class products for rescue scenarios and unite companies who put the safety of the casualty at the forefront of their product development.

Andrew Orchard, the CEO of Packexe is attending Secours Expo to demonstrate Packexe Smash and SharpsWrap. At the event he commented; “This exhibition is world leading for knowledge sharing and best practice in the rescue community. To be invited to exhibit with Renault on their extrication stand recognises that Packexe Smash is now the essential tool for time critical glass management procedures. Working alongside our industry peers Renault and Holmatro, we have been able to demonstrate the effectiveness of Packexe Smash to a huge audience of rescue workers and we look forward to visiting them in future to provide hands-on training with the Packexe Rescue products.”

The recognition for Packexe Smash and Sharpswrap in the rescue community stretches around the globe, with fire services in over 40 countries now carrying the product as standard kit. The Packexe team are looking forward to the forthcoming programme of national rescue organisation events, where we can celebrate the excellent work carried about by the skilled Fire and Rescue crews around the world.

We have been in national press following completion of a project with Aerospace Bristol which involved wrapping Concorde.


In March, we were approached by Aerospace Bristol to wrap the last Concorde 216, to protect it from the building of the museums hangar, the works included spraying fire protection paint on the walls of its hangar with Concorde in situ.


Concorde was wrapped in Packexe® Fleece, Packexe® Hardfloor and Packexe® Carpet, three products from the self-adhesive protection film range, which have specially formulated adhesives to ensure secure application and easy removal from surfaces.

 

In April, Concorde 216 was unwrapped and damage free in the new museum at Filton Airfield ready for the launch of the Aerospace Bristol in the summer. Packexe was able to create a safe and effective barrier for Concorde 216 against building work that took place around it. Following completion of the building works, all that was left to be done was to peel away the Packexe films and dispose, there was no cleaning required.

 

The project took 2.5 days to wrap and 1 day to unwrap.

Everyone worries about organising their holidays, booking tickets, finding passports and organising pet sitters. By the time people get to the airport and park their car they’re often distracted and do not check over their car carefully before heading to the terminal. Unfortunately, this means that occasionally people will inadvertently leave windows partially or fully open, leaving their car interiors exposed to the elements.
