Packexe SMASH Receives a Red Hot Welcome in Germany

Packexe SMASH is a time critical glass manage

Packexe SMASH is a time critical glass management product used within the fire & rescue industry for extrication at road traffic collisions.

It supports the quick and easy rescue of the passengers as the film reduces the risk of the glass breaking, also allowing fire fighters to remove the glass quickly and in one piece.

Packexe SMASH is going from strength to strength and the most recent show, Interschutz 2010 turned out to be an extremely successful exhibition for them. The fire and rescue exhibition takes place every five years in Germany and this year it had 1350 exhibitors from 46 countries.

The show experienced a heat wave with temperatures in Leipzig reaching 34°C in the shade! However, visitors still ventured to the stands and visitor statistics were predicted to total a dramatic 125,000.

Packexe SMASH kick started the show with daily live demonstrations in the outside showground. Fire Fighters from Leipzig used Packexe SMASH during a full extrication exercise, showing Packexe SMASH’s performance under several different scenarios including wet conditions. The demonstrators showed how glass can be left in place during extrication or broken and removed in one piece with the application of Packexe SMASH.

Packexe were pleased to welcome friends from extrication challenges across the world onto the stand alongside new enquiries from throughout Europe, North America, South America, Australasia, Africa the Far East and Asia.

Interest in the Packexe SMASH stand not only came from fire fighters and distributors from a across the globe but also television crews interested in the latest innovation. The interview between Retter television and Andrew Orchard, CEO of Packexe, can be seen at
