FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ram Air introduces boot-drying accessory for 4-IHT models
August 29, 2012 –LOVELAND, COLORADO – Ram Air Gear Dryer, a manufacturer of gear dryers made exclusively for drying personal protective equipment, recently introduced a boot-drying accessory for the company’s 4-IHT model. The new boot-dryer fits easily into one of the four drying ports. With this new accessory, fire departments and emergency service organizations will have the ability to dry 8 boots per accessory, or up to 32 boots at one time.
“As a firefighter myself, I know how uncomfortable working in wet boots can be,” said Lance Dornn, president of Ram Air. “The 4-IHT model has always been able to dry boots, but now departments can dry a large number of boots simultaneously after emergency or training situations. The new boot accessory quickly removes the moisture that can cause mold and mildew to form if left for too long. It gets departments back to a state of readiness fast.”
The optional boot-drying accessory can be ordered with new 4-IHT models or can be added to 4-IHT models currently on the market. By allowing for inverted drying, Ram Air’s 4-IHT model is able to dry hazmat, immersion and dive suits that standard gear dryers cannot accommodate while still drying standard bunker gear and accessories. Each of the machine’s four drying positions features adjustable height to properly dry specific sizes of gear. The 4-IHT quickly and efficiently dries personal protective equipment without turning gear inside out and causing damage to the gear. Since it operates using ambient air, manufacturer’s warranties remain intact and Ram Air’s 4-IHT models are NFPA compliant.
