The aluminium structure is characterised by its lightness and robustness. In order to guarantee stability on uneven surfaces, the feet are made of thermally treated aluminium. The aluminium frame is connected to stainless steel spacers, to make the complete structure of the 100 Series completely rust proof. Even on high loads, the stainless steel joints support the patient's weight longitudinally, avoiding problematic flexion. The 600 D nylon sheet, covered with vinyl SPEN-TEX is impermeable, fire-resistant, high frequency welded, easy to wash and sanitise. The entire 100 Series has been produced evaluating reduced clutter for storage space and transportation, offered by the structure that folds in half. For this reason the emergency stretchers of the 100 Series are indispensable as reserve/subsidiary stretchers in the organisation of major emergencies, in industrial accident prevention and in sport.
