Introducing the Quik-Belt Restraint Device. (Patent Pending GB1512151)
This new restraint device is part of an overall restraint system which has been specifically developed in order to assist in situations when an individual needs to be safely controlled and restrained in a seat, a bed or on a trolley.
For example, a violent disruptive passenger on board an aircraft, a person in a vehicle identified as a potential risk during a secure transportation or a patient suffering a violent episode when in a hospital bed or on a trolley.
The Quik-Restraint System comprises of the Quik-Belt Restraint Device and two leg restraint Quik-Straps, so if necessary and proportionate, using the whole system will enable total control of the individual. A full training programme in the use of the Quik-Restraint System can be provided.
The system can be used in conjunction with any form of wrist restraint, such as rigid, hinged or chain linked handcuffs or the Quik-Tie Soft Restraint Device as shown above in Fig 1.
The benefits of using the Quik-Belt Restraint System:
- The Quik-Belt was developed with simplicity and speed in mind, combining just two webbing straps - the belt strap (yellow) and the arms restraint strap (blue).
- The restraining straps do not go around the individual’s chest or fully encircle the arms, therefore at no time is there a risk of interfering with the individuals breathing or circulation in the arms.
- The yellow belt strap is simply applied over the back of the seat, bed or trolley, and secured in place (Fig 2.)
(Fig 2. The Quik-Belt strap secured on an aircraft seat)
- The arms straps are then applied to safely restrain and control the person in position (Fig 3.)
- Both straps are secured behind the seat, bed or trolley (Fig 4.)
- In an emergency or when required the individual can be quickly released from the device by simply unclicking the buckle on the arm restraint straps.
- For further control the legs can be secured and controlled using the Quik-Straps (Fig 5.)
(Fig 5. The legs secured on an aircraft)
- The straps have a breaking strain of at least 26.5kN (over 2.5 tonnes) and when loaded with 1 Tonne will only stretch between 8 – 10% of its length
- The arm restraint strap securing buckle has a breaking strain of 100kg.
- The Quik-Belt Restraint System complies with full EASA form 1 certification for the aviation industry.
- The Quik-Restraint System is supplied with a tamper proof re-useable bag, which if required can be supplied in a flame retardant material.
It is recommended that prior to using the Quik-Restraint System full training should be undertaken.
