This gear dryer (the PS4/R8) has made an impact on clean gear for Pleasant Gap Fire Company. There are no more excuses! As with any equipment, apparatus, or supplies, we are always expected to be ready, this gear dryer solution has made that a reality for personal protective equipment. We can clean and have a dry set of TOG within three hours and we are not defeating any protective characteristic or challenging the integrity to accomplish this, simply using the dryer as specified. At first, the cost may seem excessive, the value statement is solid, you have clean dry gear in a very small fraction of the time with other conventional practices. The construction is solid, the balanced air flow throughout the assembly is the key success of the design. This dryer satisfies the need for a complete set of gear, including boots, gloves, hoods, etc. We are extremely pleased with the investment we have made.
