Norix Furniture again this year will showcase its products made especially for fire and rescue environments at the annual Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) in Indianapolis, IN. Norix furniture solutions are favored by fire stations because of their superior strength, durability, style options and easy-to-maintain surfaces.
The conference, which runs April 7-12 at the Lucas Oil Stadium, “attracts firefighters from around the world to train, network and learn from the industry’s most elite instructors,” according to FDIC. The week’s events include workshops, classroom sessions, a tradeshow and H.O.T. (Hands On Training) Evolutions – a series that includes “Heavy Vehicle Extrication,” “Engine Company Essentials: Getting Water on the Fire!” and “Rescue and Squad Company Operations on the Fireground.”
Norix, a provider of robust furniture for challenging environments for more than 30 years, will be located at booth 9627. Attendees are invited to visit with Norix specialists to discuss the company’s durable products and view samples from the following lines of furniture:
Titan® Series Steel Case Goods – This series of furniture is made of all steel construction and delivers maximum strength and durability while incorporating laminate accents to create a residential aesthetic. Additionally, three Titan Drawer Lockers fit perfectly underneath Titan beds, allowing fire houses to accommodate three shifts of firefighters with one bed.
Comfort Shield™ Mattresses – Our Comfort Shield mattresses come with a foam core or foam incased innerspring core and include a nylon cover with an inverted seam. The mattresses are fluid repellant, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, crack resistant, stain resistant and bed bug resistant.
Protégé Single Bunk – This bed (photo, right) has a robust end frame and mattress deck structure and includes an integrated head and footboard as well as an anchor bracket for securing the bed to the floor. This bed is easily bunkable using tooless connectors included in the optional Bunking Kit. And like the Titan bed, Protégé can accommodate three locker drawers underneath for three shifts of firefighters.
Hondo Nuevo® Arm Chair – Part of the new Hondo Nuevo® series of furniture, this arm chair combines modern design, ergonomically correct style and comfortable lumbar support with a beautiful, thick vinyl skin and 3 lb. density polyurethane foam filling.
