The AlbacMat Emergency Rescue Mat has been designed with safety, for both the rescuer and patient being of paramount importance.

The AlbacMat is designed to slide over all types of surfaces. It is a stretcher like design, with polypropylene filling that when in storage is half the size of a rolled up sleeping bag. Constructed with heat-resistant material it is moved by a rescuer – enabling rescues to be performed as fast as physically possible.

The AlbacMat is constructed from customised materials – including polypropylene board and a lightweight canvas material. These materials have been extensively tested in all types of situations (including strength, flame and heat conducted by CSIRO). The AlbacMat is manufactured to Australian Standards 2755 and has the CE mark (Class I).

The polypropylene board acts as an insulator to the patient and air pockets provide ‘cushioning’ for stairs or in the event of rough terrain. It also enables the AlbacMat to ‘glide’ over all types of surfaces. This includes carpet and vinyl, as well as concrete, bitumen and grass, making it simple and easy for rescuers while being comfortable for the patient.

We offer 2 sizes of the AlbacMat – Standard and Large. All sizes are manufactured to strict quality control with weight capacity to 470kg (safe load tested: 160kg).

  • Effective – The ability of the AlbacMat to travel easily over most surfaces – including stairs, carpet and concrete – allows for improved efficiency when evacuating a facility.
  • Single person operation – Evacuations can be performed by one person per patient in most situations which is essential when time is critical.
  • Use in any location – The AlbacMat is totally independent of its environment. It does not matter where the patient may be – in bed, the bathroom or the corridor, they can still be placed onto the AlbacMat and taken to safety.
  • Ready for instant use – Its compact, self-storage and lightweight design means it can be readily available in varying locations for instant usage.

All sizes feature:

  • Carry handles, 3 on each side, plus the handles at the head and feet allow for 6 – 8 person carriage if required
  • Extra body strap at hips, which then allow straps to form X over torso or can be secure straight across the patient at chest, hips and shin
  • Thermal Blanket for patient comfort and safe restraint for ‘panicky’ patients or those who may try to remove themselves from the mat while in transit. It is stored in the foot pocket and can be unrolled over the patients’ feet to cover their whole body and then they can be strapped in. You can still use the AlbacMat without using the thermal cover as the patients’ feet will still rest in the foot pocket.

Large features:

  • Wider design at torso
  • Fire & Evacuation
  • Manual Handling

Intended for hospitals, care homes, schools, universities, public buildings, and more.
