Instinct fills gap in the market

The first Fibrelight Instinct Ladder is handed over to Paul Davies of Sea Training International by Matt Adams of CQC Fibrelight at Seawork 2019

It was initial feedback from Fire Service training course delegates that led Seawork exhibitor CQC and Sea Training International to work together to develop a new specialist ladder in the CQC Fibrelight range. The CQC Fibrelight Instinct Ladder has been specially designed and tested to withstand commercial and specialist access requirements.

Training provider Sea Training International has been at the forefront of specialist training for fast craft operations for many years, carrying out training for Military, Police, Customs, Coastguard and Fire and Rescue Services.  The company has used and tested CQC Fibrelight products over the last eight years.

It was during training for the Fire Service that it became apparent that there was a gap in the market for a new, more substantial and robust rescue ladder that could be deployed upwards from a RIB or other vessel to the equivalent of a first-floor window during flood rescue operations.   The materials used would need to be as light as possible but as strong as possible with substantially thicker rods, formed from GRP, for the rescue ladder rungs.  Sea Training International and CQC worked together to design the solution and the Fibrelight Instinct Ladder was the result.

Matt Adams, Business Development Manager for Fibrelight at CQC, took the opportunity to hand over the first Fibrelight Instinct Ladder to Paul Davies, Managing Director of Sea Training International, at Seawork 2019.  Having previously introduced the Fibrelight Cradle into its specialist training courses, Sea Training International Ltd is now introducing the Fibrelight Instinct Ladder into all forms of training where vertical access to and from a boat is required.
