The overarching goal of inventor Bobby Grantham in his design of this defensive firefighting tool, dubbed the Grantham MechVent (Patent Cooperation Treaty approval pending), was to provide a means to remove the smoke and heated air from a burning compartment without the requirement that a firefighter be physically in the building. Incorporating this functionality would incur the advantages of improved visibility inside the building, while limiting the possibility of the occurrence of flashover events resulting from the accumulation of excess heat in the burning compartment. The negative pressure ventilation capability by way of the MechVent hydraulic ventilation feature handily accomplishes these goals.

The device, developed by the inventor, in cooperation with Intellectual Property Law and Promotional Firm Patents Etcetera, has been demonstrated on the Canadian Discovery Channel´s Daily Planet show. During the Daily Planet expose of the MechVent, the different capabilities of this genuinely novel and unprecedented breakthrough in firefighting technology were demonstrated. A feature touted by the inventor, that the MechVent can be mounted at the top of a ladder and then put into position in the window of a burning building, and then controlled entirely from outside of the burning building and left unattended thereafter, without putting the firefighting crew in jeopardy, was shown. Another innovation incorporated into the Grantham MechVent is its firefighter escape platform to facilitate emergency exit from a burning building by a firefighter.

Finally, the inventor envisioned that the Grantham MechVent would being able to apply enough water to suppress the flames in a burning compartment without flooding it with so much water that it compromises the building´s structural integrity. He accomplished this by incorporating a rotating nozzle delivering only 9 gallons of water per 10 second burst.
