FoxFury Lighting Solutions today unveiled the SideSlide C-Clamp flashlight and helmet light at FDIC 2013 firefighter conference in Indianapolis. This 140 lumen light features a unique lock and C-clamp system that securely attaches this flashlight to firefighter helmets and full brim style hard hats.
Traditional side mounted helmet lights have a focused beam and affix to the side of fire and rescue helmets. As with other fire helmet lights, they cannot quickly be removed from the helmet and used as flashlights due to the clamp or mount used. The SideSlide C-Clamp features an innovative helmet adaptor with a lock that goes into a custom groove on the flashlight and quickly clicks into place when locked.
The prime benefit of the SideSlide C-Clamp is that it allows firefighters, rescue personnel and industrial professionals to use the light as a handheld flashlight and side mounted helmet light. The user can switch from one light type to the other in mere seconds, which is helpful given the unpredictable nature of emergency scenes and tasks needed to be performed by first responders.
The SideSlide accepts two CR123 lithium batteries or one rechargeable 18650 battery with a battery life of 4-8 hours. This powerful focused 140 lumen light offers two selectable brightness levels (high and low) along with a flashing mode. Simply press the switch down to cycle between modes. As with the Command and Discover helmet lights, the rear of the SideSlide features a flashing safety LED to help be seen from behind. Unlike the other FoxFury headlamps, the SideSlide rear LED flashes green rather than red.
The SideSlide C-clamp design attaches securely to firefighter helmets and to fill brim style hard hats. Another model called the Bolt offers a bolt mount that can bolts into select rescue helmets.
“We’re excited to offer a side mounted helmet light, which can also be used as a flashlight. We feel it’ll be a valuable and versatile lighting tool for firefighters, rescue personnel and industrial professionals,” said Mario Cugini, CEO of FoxFury.
The SideSlide C-clamp was officially unveiled at the FDIC 2013 firefighter conference in Indianapolis, IN.
