HEAVY-DUTY SWING DOOR
Ideal for heavy-duty rescues, this swing-out-style smooth aluminum tool board provides "hidden" access to surplus extrication tools. The swing-out tool board is rated for an impressive 200 lbs. of equipment!
Ideal for heavy-duty rescues, these rotating equipment racks allow crews to store and easily access hydraulic tools via this "Lazy Susan" turntable. Each turntable can carry up to four different hydraulic tools.
This angled saw compartment, usually spec'ed above the truck's wheel well, allows for safe and easy access to saws and cutters, while also providing storage underneath thanks to a hinged gas-strut design.
Ideal for walk-in rescues and command vehicles, this pass-thru compartment features dual doors (traditional exterior access and an interior roll-up door), allowing crews to access equipment inside or outside the apparatus.
custom poly tool trays
Organize your tools with custom poly tool trays. We'll work with you to create a space-saving arrangement. These trays are particularly useful for organizing your battery-powered tools and the many components that go with them.
fRONT BUMPER REELS
This front bumper design allows access to both air and hydraulic reels at the front of the apparatus. Each reel can run independently of each other, making the effectiveness of a front-end offensive much higher.
HEAVY-DUTY REAR LADDER
Fabricated by SVI Trucks from aluminum extrusions, this rear folding ladder is more durable than any other ladder on the market! Dual hydraulic pistons make this ladder easy to deploy for quick roof access and can be built to any length.
For easy, safe roof access, spec a rear stairway. A series of stairs can raise on hydraulic struts for quick under-stairway storage, spacious enough to house your rear winch system near the rear's essential tie-off points.
HYDRAULIC STAIRWELL LIFT
Want even more under-stairway storage? With the simple push of a button, the entire staircase can raise using a hydraulic lift system. Cargo slides make equipment easy to access inside this space-saving compartment.
PNEUMATIC hose bed cover
Pneumatic hose bed covers allow firefighters to focus on the real task at hand — extinguishing the fire. These automatic covers allow easy access to the hoses without wasting energy uncovering this equipment.
custom fire truck steps
These custom-built steps, which stow inside a compartment, allow Hazmat units and Command Center vehicles more ground clearance to accommodate lower storage. The steps' folding design deploys easy and provides durable entry.
INTERIOR SLIDE-OUT DESK
Why settle for any ordinary command desk? This aluminum slideout desk allows crews to prepare paperwork while en route, while the gas-strut desktop design provides added storage.
