About Our Props

KING CEILING PROP


The King Ceiling Prop is a firefighting training simulator designed to teach and practice the skills of ceiling pull and overhaul by utilizing the real world feel and effort to pull conventional drywall ceilings.

Up until now, the only way to train in non emergency situations for overhaul and ceiling pull has been in condemned or donated vacant buildings which are becoming hard to acquire and make safe for training per NFPA 1403.
The King Ceiling Prop allows you and your dept. or training facility to pull ceiling and simulate real world movements, skills, and techniques in a safe, convenient, affordable, and easily reset scenario.

Thanks to its ease of movement and quick set up design The King Ceiling Prop can be placed anywhere you would like to train. Inside the firehouse apparatus floor, Training grounds, inside burn buildings, etc. The design also allows for quick reset and realistic resistance when punching through with a pike pole.

The material / consumable used is 1/2 drywall or any sheet good of your choice. Many local home improvement stores donate slightly damaged product which is perfect for this prop and makes for a low cost training solution. One 4ft x 8ft sheet fills all six bays of the prop and additional material can be stored on the props side storage racks allowing for very quick reset periods to aid in continuous training.

The King Ceiling Prop is designed to hold up to the stress and forces of firefighter training and is easily moved when not in use. The added design features allow you to place real life ceiling obstructions such as electrical conduit, or romex wiring. Quality hands on training is a valuable necessity for many fire departments and training centers. The King Ceiling Prop is an effective way to continue to train and maintain the skills that we do not get to practice often.

The prop has held up extremely well for a class of 150 candidates".

By Jim McCormack Published Thursday, April 1, 2010 | From the April 2010 Issue of FireRescue One of the things that’s happened in the last 10 or so years is that the emphasis on truck company operations and the skills it takes to actually perform them have really exploded—more awareness, more knowledge, more training. During this time, a couple things have remained constant: the importance placed on the knowledge and skills it takes to get the job done varies with each individual firefighter; and solid truck company skills, performed at the right time, make things easier on the fireground. Your Individual Situation Where You Are: In all honesty, it really doesn’t matter where you are in terms of your city, state or region, truck work is truck work! The skills involved include forcible entry, laddering, search, ventilation, overhaul and more. East Coast, West Coast or somewhere in between, the basics are still the same. If you’re faced with a locked entry door on the fireground and you make your way to the other side, it’s called forcible entry (in California, Indiana, Massachusetts and everywhere else). The Size of Your Department: A big misconception in the fire service, when it comes to the fireground, is that the size of the department changes what needs to be done. That’s really not true. The size of the department changes what can be done in a certain time period (based on staffing, equipment and resources), but it takes the same skills to put a fire out in a small or large department.
