Plastic Life Safety Equipment, Gears & Devices Injection Molding
Plastic has been a crucial material in life safety since the 1950s. At Hansen Plastics, we are proud to play a critical role in manufacturing components and equipment that saves lives on a day-to-day basis by offering plastic injection molding services for the safety industry. Plastic is incredibly versatile and can be used to create numerous pieces of equipment, including everything from safety goggles to riot shields and even medical equipment.  
Types of Lifesaving Gear Made with Plastic Components 
When you think of life safety, you may think of a red-and-white life preserver, an orange lifejacket, or even a lifeguard sitting by the pool keeping swimmers safe. However, life safety goes much deeper than this, and much of the gear and equipment utilized every day to protect firefighters, police officers, do-it-yourselfers in their home workshops, and even the average person as he or she goes about the day has numerous plastic components that lend to its ability to provide protection. Some of the most common, yet important plastic lifesaving equipment includes: 
  • Clips and Connectors - Things like child safety seats and even electrical technician’s safety harnesses – equipment that keep them safe in the event of an accident – are made from a wide variety of materials. However, the clips and connectors are often made from durable plastic. These pieces are lightweight and strong, making them perfect for use in these applications.
  • Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors - Almost everyone has smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in their homes, and these are also made from durable molded plastic. The lightweight material allows these gadgets to fit securely against a wall without anchoring which makes them incredibly easy to install and use.
  • Alarms and Similar Devices - Alarms play an important role in protecting both lives and property, and many of these are designed to be portable or even buoyant when used out in the open water. Plastic provides these features without compromising durability.
  • Personal Protection - Today, many people across the nation and the world carry things like pepper spray or whistles to help keep them safe in the event that they are approached by someone with ill intent. Often, pepper spray comes inside a plastic holder that attaches securely to a keyring, which keeps it accessible.
  • Security Systems - Security system technology has improved a great deal over the last few decades and it has become more affordable in the process. As such, people all around the world install cameras and security systems in their homes to protect their lives and assets. These cameras, sensors, and even high-tech doorbells all require a variety of plastic parts for their buttons, housings, and more.
