You can’t predict the nature of an emergency situation, but GRIP allows you to control your fleet’s idling time at the scene and the negative impact it has on your vehicles and the environment. The system helps you save on operational costs and reduces your carbon footprint without compromising core safety and security features.
Fully customizable. Adaptable to different emergency vehicles and their batteries. Cost-effective and easy-to-install. GRIP gives you the power to save on fuel, engine wear, and harmful emissions while allowing your team to save lives.
GRIP in Action
GRIP is proven to drastically reduce operational costs, vehicle wear, and your carbon footprint. With GRIP installed, engine operation is cut between 30-70%, which reduces fuel costs, harmful CO2 emissions, downtime. The system has even been proven to extend vehicle lifespan.
After installing GRIP, similar emergency services have seen a drastic reduction in the cost of their fleet—a savings of approximately $3,500 per vehicle. One police department was able to save $1.2 million yearly on combined fuel, maintenance, and vehicle replacement costs.
Safety Above All
The GRIP Idle Management System will drastically reduce emissions and cut emergency vehicle costs, but it does so without putting lives at risk. Vehicle safety features that First Responders need and rely on, such as air bags, lighting equipment and computers, will remain operational at all times, even when the system goes into monitoring mode.
The anti-theft feature allows an operator to secure their vehicle, leave it with the systems maintained, and take the key with them, preventing anyone from stealing it. When the vehicle engine shuts down, you can customize the system to automatically re-start it when a driver door is opened, the brake pedal is pushed, or a seatbelt is fastened.
GRIP allows you to customize parameters and thresholds based on each emergency vehicle’s duty cycle, meaning drivers never have to turn the system on or off, or set controls—everything is automatic.
Savings in Full
While most emergency services initially install GRIP into their fleet to eliminate unnecessary idling and the environmental damage and costs associated with it, they quickly learn the full benefit of the system:
- Extending vehicle life by reducing unnecessary wear and tear
- Reduced maintenance costs due to decreased wear and tear
- Vehicle spending less time in the shop and more time in use
- Increased operator safety, security, and vehicle function
- For vehicles with DPF systems, GRIP significantly reduces the maintenance costs and failures
- Reduces fuel consumption and fewer trips to gas stations
- Reduces public complaints and improves public perception
