As vehicles become more complex and larger this introduces a whole new range of Occupational Heath and Safety challenges. Ladders are normally stowed on top of a vehicle and accessed by climbing onto the roof or the back step to release the bracket. Safety & Height restrictions are now bringing this practice to a close and in response to this Centurion Fire & Rescue Equipment present our new ‘Rapid Stow’ Gantries to overcome the challenge of safely accessing ladders & equipment.
Rapid Stow - SMALL, SAFE and SIMPLE
A ‘generic’ sized Rapid Stow is manufactured to suit vehicles no more than 2 metres in height. This gantry can be adjusted to take varying ladder widths. Where vehicle heights are in excess of 2 metres, Rapid Stow is built to the individual ladder specification to ensure it deploys to a safe working height; contact Centurion Fire for more information.
Rapid Stow MAX - BUILT for BIG LADDERS!
The ladder is stowed with the head axle slid into the Ladder Head Bracket which, when rolled fully to the end stop, allows the axle to slide forward & lock into place. The ladder base is locked into place with the bottom rungs strapped down into PAC Adjustamount Brackets. This suspends the ladder by the base rungs & head axle so it is protected from movement & vibration damage caused when the vehicle is in motion, (an axle retro-fit kit is available for ladders without wall wheels). An optional detachable operating handle ensures access to rear lockers is not compromised.
