Paratech’s Powered Impact Tools (PIT) are designed for forcible entry during fire fighting and rescue operations. They are used for cutting metal and composites, breaking masonry walls, penetrating concrete floors, forcible entry and digging during tunneling operations. Paratech’s PITs consume air only on the power stroke. This unique, patented design provides a pneumatic impact and penetrating device with an adjustable power output and very low air consumption.
ARFF Grab and Go Kit
ARFF (Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting) Grab and Go Kit: This multipurpose kit is designed to handle numerous functions in ARFF. Includes a cutting bit designed to cut aircraft windshields and canopies, a cutting bit to cut sheet metal, a plug driver bit and neoprene plugs for leak sealing, a piercing nozzle that can penetrate the GLARE composite skin as well as, CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic). The 14” Piercing nozzle can flow water or chemical firefighting agents like foam etc. to help put out fires. This Grab and Go kit also includes the Paratech Pakhammer, designed to use with a limited air supply, uses less air and hits harder than any other tool of its kind and can go much longer before an air change is needed. Other pieces of equipment in this versatile kit are an adjustable regulator that can operate the tool at a range of 40 psi to 200 psi.

A 1000–1100 high impact blows per minute, 11 pound impact tool that dramatically increases the range of forcible entry and rescue work initial responding units can handle without calling up heavy equipment. The Pakhammer is the only pneumatic impact tool of its size that is designed to operate from portable air cylinders. It is an ideal tool for bus and train rescue, high rise work, collapse rescue or any situation that requires a powerful impact tool that operates from a limited air supply
The Pakhammer SC (Self Contained) is designed to exceed current U.S. Air Force requirements for an aircraft skin penetrator. It is an ideal crash rescue tool. Carrying its own limited air supply, a firefighter can rapidly insert several penetrator/applicator nozzles depending on the location and spread of fire or fuel. These penetrator/ applicator nozzles will flow water, AFFF solutions and Halon. When the self contained air supply is exhausted the air supply assembly can be quickly detached in favor of another air source. The firefighter now has the full benefit of a standard Pakhammer to continue rescue operations.
