KIMTEK’s New Website Offers Faster, Simpler Access to Rescue Transport Products

KIMTEK Corporation’s newly updated website,, is fully operational. Improvements specifically targeted the streamlining of searches of the company’s growing product line and its numerous existing and emerging applications. KIMTEK’s prominent line of slide-in FIRELITE® and MEDLITE® transport skid units, engineered to fit pick-up trucks and utility vehicles used for first response in off-road and remote areas, are custom equipped for fire and medical rescue personnel. Featuring easy-to-find links to the KIMTEK products that coordinate with the various manufacturers of these vehicles, the new website simplifies and expedites users’ navigation among the many custom options available to first responders.


MEDLITE® and FIRELITE® Transport Skids Fit New Gravely® Atlas JSV

In its recent expansion into side-by-side utility vehicles, Wisconsin-based Gravely®, an Ariens Company brand, has introduced the 2015 Gravely Atlas, a heavy-duty jobsite UTV that readily accommodates the KIMTEK® MEDLITE® and FIRELITE® transport skid units. The new Atlas JSV 3000 and JSV 6000 crew gas and diesel models each have a cargo bed capacity of 1250 pounds, easily supporting any of the nine UTV transport skid units KIMTEK currently offers for off-road fire and rescue operations.

With modular, slide-in design and adaptability, KIMTEK’s skid units install into Atlas JSVs in just minutes. Their included tie-down system attaches simply and quickly to the Atlas integrated tie-downs already located in the UTV cargo bed. With room for an attendant and a patient in the MEDLITE units, and the ability to carry up to 85 gallons of water plus a patient in the FIRELITE units, the Atlas JSV-KIMTEK combinations offer first responders in police, fire, and EMS agencies powerful tools for off-road fire and rescue, wildland search and rescue, large event response, lifeguard operations, industrial fire and medical response, and several other field applications.
