CoolDrive Expands EV & Hybrid Safety Equipment Range
16 Feb, 2023
CoolDrive Auto Parts has expanded its range of safety equipment for workshops, with automatic defibrillators and associated accessories now available.
“This new product range at CoolDrive has been introduced in response to new Australia Standard AS 5732:2022 for workshops working with electric and hybrid vehicles,” said David Haley, Category Manager at CoolDrive Auto Parts.
“This new Australian Standard AS 5732:2022 specify exact requirements on safe and appropriate handling procedures, and provide guidance on safety and personal protective equipment, particularly around electrical hazards and the availability of an automatic external defibrillator.”
Now available at CoolDrive is the industry-leading HeartSine samaritan semi-automatic and fully-automatic Public Access Defibrillators, which can be used by both people trained in CPR, and those who are untrained.
The easy-to-understand visual and voice prompts guide the rescuer through the entire resuscitation process, including CPR, with the unit conducting its own weekly checks to ensure it is ready to use at any time.
Weighing just 1.1kg, they are the lightest units on the market, and with a compact footprint, they are easily transported and can be installed in tight spaces.
The HeartSine defibrillators benefit from the innovative Pad-Pak, an integrated battery and electrode single-use cartridge with one expiration date, resulting in a simple maintenance change once every four years.
Offering a IP56 rating, one of the highest ratings in the industry against dust and moisture protection, the HeartSine samaritan units are backed by an eight-year warranty.
Complementing this new defibrillator range are associated safety accessories including a Jaylec Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) Cabinet to protect the AED, which comes equipped with an alarm and strobe light which will activate when the door is opened, along with a Jaylec AED Prep Kit.
