’BIG Rig’ – Mobile Training Unit

AT CHECKMATE we are always on the lookout for events and tradeshows to attend. Keeping abreast of trends and industry developments enables the group to innovate and deliver great new products to our extensive range of customers.
‘Big Rig’ Road Show

Following its debut at A+A in Dusseldorf (the world’s largest trade fair for safety and security), the Checkmate fire truck (AKA ‘Big Rig’) has been on tour around the UK, stopping off at the LEEA Liftex Expo and the Speedy Showcase 2012, among others.

The Speedy Showcase 2012 was a great road show held at four locations in March – Haydock Racecourse in Merseyside, Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, RICOH Arena in Coventry and Epsom Racecourse in Surrey.

The events showcased a great new range of products and services for 2012 with over 60 new “Green, Lean, Safe and Specialist” products on display from over 30 leading manufacturers. Speedy is a key client for Checkmate, having recently standardised its entire fall arrest block offering to include the award-winning Xcalibre range.

We took the opportunity to display a huge selection of products to branch personnel and end users in a live environment – and audience reaction was exceptional. Our fire truck was an instant hit with all present as they could see the practical application of our product lines, and even take part in live demos where possible.

The ‘Big Rig’ is now a regular member of the Checkmate family and is available for hire either to demonstrate our range of height safety equipment, or as a stand-alone mobile training unit.
