Scott Safety ACSf and ACSfx advanced carrying system sets

The ACSf and ACSfx advanced carrying system sets provide comfort and flexibility for the professional firefighter and are approved to AS/NZS 1716.

Claimed to be significantly lighter than any other carrying system in its class, it incorporates ThermoFlex technology that creates an ergonomically sculptured soft back plate to provide comfort, ease of movement and reduction in wearer fatigue. The back plate is designed and moulded to fit the spine and back muscles.

The harness incorporates high-visibility reflected threading and has fully adjustable padded shoulder straps, a waistband featuring large buckles for easy operation with gloved hands in fast donning and removal, plus D rings that allow fast and easy connection of other equipment to the webbing or straps. A rapid connect cylinder band allows for adjustment or change-out of cylinder in seconds, which is beneficial in any fire operations.

The ACSfx combines all the features of the ACSf, but also has an extending back plate that can be adapted to suit the height of the wearer.

The harness and cylinder band is manufactured from durable 100% Kevlar flame-retardant webbing with corrosion-resistant, nickel-plated components that are user serviceable and simple to maintain.

The back plate and harness can be washed at the same time as turnout gear, and the fabric material is approved to maintain its flame-retardant qualities for 50 washes at 90°C. A washing bag can be included to protect the harness and washing machine.

The system sets incorporate a simple, two-stage pneumatic system. A first breath-activated positive pressure demand valve provides low breathing resistance and good dynamic performance - particularly at high flow rates. A first-stage pressure reducing valve features only two moving parts and accepts cylinder pressures up to 300 bar without adjustment.
