The PRT is a powerful hand held rescue tool that can be put to work with a minimal amount of training. Primarily designed for fast, forcible entry, one person can quickly pry open locks and doors in seconds and easily break through brick and concrete block walls within a few minutes. The ‘Slam & Ram’ action of the PRT directs all of its force directly at the point of impact – without deflection, making it safer and more effective than a sledge and wedge. This heavy duty rescue tool is easily stored and transported, so it can always be…the first tool to the rescue.
