Heat stress has been shown to be a leading factor cause of injury during fire suppression.
With this in mind, Blowhard have created a tool to assist in active cooling – the Blowhard Misting Ring.
The Misting Ring transforms your Blowhard fan into an effective recovery tool that assists in combating heat stress.
The Blowhard Misting Ring fits quickly to the front of Blowhard Fans. When attached to a regular, domestic hose, the Misting Ring creates a super fine “mist” which aids in firefighter recovery by helping to lower the core body temperature after training or an incident.

Firefighters experience high amounts of physical and mental stress when attending an incident. Environmental factors like extreme heat, humidity or cold contribute to conditions that may have an adverse impact on a firefighters health.
In Australia, heat stress has been highlighted as a leading cause of injury during fire suppression.
Dangers like heat stress can be mitigated with the implementation of a rest and recovery strategy that includes measures like Active Cooling. Active Cooling is the process of using external methods or devices to reduce the bodies elevated core temperature.
With this in mind, Blowhard have created an accessory that aids in Active Cooling. The Misting Ring transforms your Blowhard fan into an effective recovery tool that assists in combating heat stress.
It takes just seconds to fit the Misting Ring to the front of a Blowhard Fan using the super strong, magnetic adaptor. When attached to a regular domestic hose, the 8 low pressure nozzles create a super fine mist which aids in firefighter recovery by helping to lower the core body temperature after training or an incident.
Pac Fire and Blowhard Fans have a long standing and prosperous relationship spanning more than 8 years.
Blowhard Fans have single handedly revolutionised the way ventilation in emergency situations is approached.
Blowhard’s BH-20 PPV fan has been designed for high pressure to effectively drive ventilation. The high velocity jet stream produced by the BH-20 assists in building pressure to effectively clear smoke from the structure.
Boasting unique design and construction, the BH-20 is lighter, smaller, incredibly durable and more powerful than other fans on the market today.
The soft start motor can be powered with both a mains outlet or Blowhard’s long lasting, Li-Ion battery pack. This feature allows the fan to be set up faster and started instantly – in some instances cutting down response time by up to 6 minutes. Weighing only 27kgs, Blowhards ergonomic design which includes a shoulder strap, allows the fan to be repositioned while still running. It’s compact design allows it to be used in difficult, hard to reach spaces while also saving valuable space on emergency response vehicles.
Supercharge your response time with the BH-20 from Blowhard.
Blowhard Fans are available throughout Australia and New Zealand from Pac Fire.
