Of the many hazards that fires present, lack of visibility due to smoke is one of the most dangerous. In broad-daylight conditions, it can be so thick that vision is severely obscured, while at night, firefighters can’t even see what they’re feeling with their hands. Consider the following scenario:

You’ve placed your ladder and have climbed onto the roof of a burning building. A hole punctures the roof, allowing thick, choking smoke to pour from the breach. The smoke cloud quickly envelops any sight of the ledge where the ladder was attached to. Luckily, after briefly searching, you safely reach the edge of the roof and locate the ladder. You had enough time during the encounter to make your escape, but what if you needed to get off the roof immediately?

Enter the ARC Ladder Light, specifically designed to provide the necessary illumination so that firefighters can quickly, easily, and efficiently locate their ladders and descend safely. Built to withstand the harsh environments that firefighters endure, the durable ARC Ladder Light is housed in a strong, polycarbonate case with sealed switches that ensure its longevity.
