The Ripper

NEW! Laminated Glass Cutter

Download The Ripper Sales Sheet – 3.5MB

The Ripper laminated glass cutter enables all first responders to “punch-and-cut” windshields, and passenger side windows, with an all-in-one design that provides fast and safe access to patients for immediate care.

The Ripper has been engineered specifically for window glass management. The Ripper is an all-in-one solution for Fire Fighters, First Responders, Paramedics and Law Enforcement. It uses common cordless impact drivers, non-proprietary batteries, and features a high-speed cutting blade that can both pierce and cut any laminated vehicle glass.

Your Department Needs Laminated Glass Cutters

Effective September 1, 2018, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 226 (FMVSS 226) established requirements for ejection mitigation systems to reduce the likelihood of complete and partial occupant ejections through side windows during rollover or side impact events. The standard applies to all passenger cars, multipurpose vehicles, trucks and buses with a GVWR of 4,536 kg or less.

This change is expected to add 17 million new vehicles per year to America’s roadways with laminated glass side windows. Glass management will now require both punches to shatter tempered/safety glass and laminated glass cutters. Punches will not shatter laminated glass. A second issue related to patient safety requires the use of non-intrusive blade systems on side windows to avoid striking patients or uncooperative suspects while removing laminated glass.
