Develop’s latest addition is a mobile confined space unit. This state-of-the-art facility can simulate a range of environments using lighting and smoke machines throughout the 35 metres of tunnel.

This unit is fitted with the latest technology – including a 4k and night vision camera system as well as an audio system. It also includes a smoke machine and pipework to create simulated environments. The unit takes up just four car parking spaces on an employers’ site.

Check out this short video to see the unit’s features and see the facilities fit for a fireman!

We have a fantastic range of clients from Rolls Royce and Cadent to the Emergency Services.
