First-8 is Europas largest defibrillator webshop - we have a large selection of defibrillators from some of the biggest manufacturers on the market.
There are many different types of defibrillators on the market. Basically, they can all do the same thing: deliver electrical shocks that get the heart pumping again. However, there is a big difference between the different models. When it comes to the ease of use, the design, the lifetime of the battery and electrodes, factory warranty, service costs and extra functions and features. In our blog post about defibrillators, you can read much more about which things you should consider before buying a defibrillator.
Which cabinet should you choose?
No matter which defibrillator you buy, it is always a good idea to buy an additional cabinet. The cabinet has two primary functions: it makes your defibrillator more visible so that it can be found by everyone, and it has a built-in alarm that is triggered when the cabinet is opened. The built-in alarm helps to draw attention to the emergency situation in the surroundings and call for help.
The first thing you need to decide is whether the defibrillator should hang outside or inside. This has an impact on which cupboard you should choose. If you decide to place the defibrillator outdoors, you must use a cabinet with heat, as defibrillators have a minimum operating temperature of 0 degrees. In addition, you should also consider whether the cabinet should also have ventilation, which can help to cool down the defibrillator in the summer. The most important thing is that the cabinet can maintain a temperature that corresponds to the operating temperature of the defibrillator you buy. The operating temperatures vary between the different models on the market.
As with defibrillators, there are also many different types of cabinets on the market. We would recommend you look at the Arky and Aivia cabinets, as you get extremely high quality for the money. All the outdoor cabinets we sell can keep the defibrillator within the recommended temperature spectrum.
