The innovative F4 from Sterling gives firefighters an advanced, yet simple to use tool for emergency egress. 

They are designed to allow easy horizontal movement, a smooth sill transition, and controlled vertical descent. The auto-locking feature allows for a hands-free exit from the structure, while the slim profile integrates easily with turnout gear and keeps the F4 out of the way during regular operations. Versatile for right or left-handed users.
