Mallaghan unveils new 6X6 fire rescue stair at Dubai Airshow

Mallaghan, a global leader in the manufacturing of airport ground support equipment (GSE), has unveiled its newest range of Fire Rescue Stair, the 6×6 at the Dubai Airshow.

The first of these new model Fire Rescue Stair units to leave the factory at Mallaghan’s headquarters in Northern Ireland, was handed over to firefighting equipment supplier, Naffco, and is currently being exhibited at the Dubai Airshow.

Marcel Bernhard, Sales Department at Mallaghan, said: “We are thrilled to launch our newest product, the 6X6 Fire Rescue Stair, here at the Dubai Airshow.

“The equipment has been handed over to our first customer, Naffco, and is being showcased at the Naffo stand throughout the show.

“It has been fantastic to display the Stair here in Dubai and whilst this is a niche product, I’m delighted to say we have had significant interest and have enjoyed talking delegates through the key features.”

The 6×6 Fire Rescue Stairs are designed to accommodate rapid evacuation of passengers from wide bodied aircraft, such as Boeing 747s and Airbus A350s, in the event of an emergency.

The stairs are equipped with emergency lighting, beacons, water tanks, foam tanks and hose reels, and can be customised to the exact requirements of the customer.

Marcel continued: “The 6×6 Fire Rescue Stair is just one of the new Fire Rescue Stair products we have been developing with Naffco and are very proud to complete the handover at the prestigious Dubai Airshow.”
