New Bullard TrakLite® Offers Hands-Free Lighting Solution

Integrated structural fire helmet light helps enhance firefighter safety

CYNTHIANA, KY - April 22, 2009 - The Bullard TrakLite® is the first fully integrated structural fire helmet light for the fire service. The innovative TrakLite design, exclusively for Bullard structural fire helmets, easily mounts on the front of a fire helmet, illuminating dark, smoky, low visibility areas for firefighters.

The TrakLite features eight white domed LED lights integrated into the front of the fire helmet, plus a blue LED indicator light mounted to the rear of the helmet. The rear “buddy indicator” light provides greater visibility of the wearer to other members of the firefighting crew.

Unlike traditional lighting solutions, the TrakLite design helps to eliminate snagging hazards since it requires no external clips, brackets or wires. This innovative safety design allows the weight of the TrakLite to be evenly distributed in the front and rear of the helmet offering a comfortable fit for the user. The TrakLite is powered by four AAA batteries that provide firefighters with more than six hours of continuous light at peak performance and more than one hundred continuous hours of light output.

TrakLite is currently available on all Bullard structural fire helmets including the UST6, USTM6, FX, PX and LT and can be field retrofitted for select helmets. For retrofit information, contact Bullard Customer Service at 877-BULLARD.
