Fireco "Steady Masts" are similar to the Partner masts, but they are fitted with locking collars to secure each section of the mast to the previous section. A steady mast is used for applications where the extended height is maintained for long periods of time.
FIRECO “STEADY” Telescopic Masts are pneumatically operated masts that use locking collars to keep the mast sections raised without the need of air pressure. The locking collars use a T-handle on each of the collar which tightens a steel locking band in the collar to clamp the tube section to the tube below. This is particularly useful in applications where the equipment must remain deployed for long durations. The locking collars also allow the mast to be supported with guy ropes in large head load / high wind loading conditions. The mast sections are keyed to prevent the tube sections from independently rotating. Equipment can be mounted permanently to the mast head using the 4-bolt head configuration or using the 24mm Pin Head to provide quick access to the equipment. A turnable base (manual or electric) can be fitted to the mast to allow for directional head loads. Internal cable can be fitted to provide Cat5e, power, control and micro-coax to the equipment on the mast head.
FIRECO “STEADY Telescopic Masts are suited for Defence, Mining and Construction Applications where the mast will be used in harsh conditions. The main benefit of using a steady mast is the ability to fit sand scraper rings which is an additional wiper seal at the top of each collar that ‘wipes’ the tube section as it is retracting to prevents dirt and dust from getting into the mast and preventing the sections to operate correctly.FIRECO “STEADY” Telescopic Masts are also suited for Communication Applications where there will be camera or communication equipment mounted to the mast head such as remote monitoring CCTV and Surveillance Applications. The main benefit is that internally coiled cable can be fitted within the mast to provide un-accessible ethernet and power feeds to the camera equipment. The other benefit is the T-handles can be removed and Tamper Proof Locking nuts installed to prevent un-wanted access to the equipment on the mast head.FIRECO “STEADY” Telescopic Masts are also suited for Lighting Applications where the system needs to be deployed for long durations

Fireco Roof Masts are horizontally stowed (fold down) masts and are suited in roof mounted vehicle or trailer applications where there is not enough room to mount a traditional vertical pnuematic telescopic mast. Actuators raise the mast from the horizontal position to the vertical position. An in-built compressor raises the mast vertically. The NOVA Tilt and Turn unit allows the Lights (or other equipment) to be directed to the location where required. The system can be automatically stowed using the wired (or wireless) multifunction remote control. The system also includes a safety feature that can be intergrated into the vehicle’s park brake so that if it is released while the mast is raised then the mast will automatically stow.

The patented Fireco Aquamast is a pneumatic telescopic mast that has an internal telescopic water way which can be fitted with a monitor of your choice. The Aquamast has been designed for high elevation fire fighting, particularly in narrow streets, industrial sites, refineries etc where larger aerial appliances cannot access. Aquamast models range from an extended height of 4m to 13m and are capable of flow rates from 1000 LPM on the tallest masts up to 6400 LPM on the smallest masts.
Fireco manufacture a range of petrol and diesel powered Ultra High Pressure Fire Fighting Systems (UHPS). UHPS deliver high pressure, low flow water streams, that provide fine water droplets that can quickly quench the fire. Low flow rates conserve water and small diameter hoses makes it easy to handle.
OverviewMartin KFZ Technik (formed in 1998) is a German manufacturer who specialise in vehicle integrated 12V/24V and 230V Generators and Compressed air systems.Traditional stand alone power generator and compressed air systems can be noisy, heavy, take up a lot of valuable space, and require regular refuelling and maintenance. These constraints can be optimised with the use of vehicle integrated power generator and compressed air systems.The generator and compressed air systems can be directly mounted to the engine via custom designed mounting brackets or via the power take off (PTO) Typically mounting kits are available vehicles such as Ford, Iveco, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Renault, Ford, Hino, and IsuzuPower generator systems are ideally suited for vehicles in the emergency services or service related industries where 230V clean power is required.Existing 230V systems are currently in operation within Australia providing 8KVA of 230V power for the lights, compressors, pressure washers.
8KVA - 230V Generator SystemsThe system consists of a generator, brackets and an inverter which is capable of outputting 35A at 230V, 50Hz (8KVA) of clean power.The specialised generator which is mounted to the engine block with specially designed brackets. is belt driven, and provides power to the inverter.The inverter, weighing 14kg is a small and compact unit that can be mounted remotely, provides single phase 230V (up to 8KVA) power which can then be distributed as required within the vehicle.The inverter maintains constant Voltage / Frequency at all times. As the generator speed increases, the power output increases, up to a maximum of 8KVA

OverviewAustralia and the United States of America are two of the most fire prone areas of the world, and have experienced a tragic number of fire-fighter fatalities over the years due to vehicle burn overs. Australian fire services have since introduced water spray protection systems on large fire fighting appliances that have proven effective to save lives, but typically require 500 to 750 litres of water to adequately protect the crew within the vehicle. Ultra light tankers only carry minimal water reserves which are reserved for fire fighting.
System OperationThe Red Door Gel 'Crew Protection' System (RDGS) works by injecting a super absorbent fire blocking polymer gel into a water spray system applying a protective fire barrier layer to the critical external components of the vehicle such as windscreen, cabin doors, wheels and pump in 20 seconds.The heart of the system is located in a 'drop on module' that contains the gel injection/recirculation system. Every time the vehicle is started the gel is recirculated for a short duration to ensure the gel remains mixed and ready to be deployed in the event of a burn over.The spray system utilises 8 extendable spray nozzles located at the wheels and cabin doors and 2 fixed spray nozzles at the bull bar and pump. These sprays are able to be manually tested with water periodically to ensure the sprays are operating and aligned correctly.

DeploymentIn an emergency burn over situation the deployment switch, located within the cabin, is activated. The RDGS will apply a gel/water mixture uniformly on the wheels, cabin doors, windscreen and pump. The system can be deployed well in advance of an oncoming fire front and still maintain the fire protection properties.
