Firefighters save lives. It all depends on reliable cooperation and routine procedures. That’s always the main focus of their training. But they also need reliable technology. LED lighting solutions from OSRAM provide the right lighting for important moments - like in the fire engines produced by the world’s leading fire equipment specialist, Rosenbauer, based in Austria.
When firefighters are in action, their focus is often on saving lives, meaning that speed is very important. By day and especially by night, the work they do is extremely demanding. And feeling safe in the sphere of action also plays an essential role. This is where the need for the perfect lighting comes in:
at twilight, and when it’s dark, parts of the fire engine are not very well lit. Better lighting can help save valuable seconds.
State-of-the-art LED technology helps firefighters’ vision
Glare-free light is crucial for complex working procedures. In a fire engine cabin, for example, where the firefighters put on their equipment and get ready for action, there is an LED light in every corner. The indirect light that is given is not tiring to the human eye. This makes it easier to adapt to the dark.
OSRAM supplies state-of-the-art LED technology to the fire equipment specialist, Rosenbauer, which is always adapted to the overall ergonomic concept. LED light ensures homogeneous illumination, even in narrow spaces inside the vehicle.
Lighting that provides the right atmosphere
Light can be used to specifically improve the perception and atmosphere amongst the fire personnel: Light can be used as necessary to stimulate, help concentration or provide balance. As flexible LED modules can be changed in terms of light color and temperature, they can be used in a wide range of applications. For example, they can be changed from white to green - or any other color shade. Therefore the light on the way to the destination has a calming effect without tiring the fire personnel.
Light also helps the crew when they are getting in and out of the vehicle: Grip bars fitted with indirect light units illuminate the door area and the safety steps. Flexible LED modules also illuminate the full width of the roller shutter profiles. This directs the firefighters to the equipment. There are no problems with glare with this type of light. This means the personnel can work rapidly with virtually no risk of injury.
