Firefox Mobile Fire Trailer From Firefox Fire Solutions
We are pleased to provide you with an alternative mobile apparatus for all your fire fighting requirements: the Firefox Mobile Fire Trailer!
This unique firefighting apparatus combines distinctive features unlike any other fire fighting apparatus currently in use today.
The Firefox Mobile Fire Trailer combines a water tank, pump and foam proportioning system to deliver water and foam wherever it’s needed. This unit is ideally suited to interface communities and estates, and industrial areas bordered by grasslands or dry forest types.
The trailer system dispenses either water only or water plus any class of foam. It also has the ability to dispense a water -enhancing gel which is mixed through a mechanical proportioner (does not require a power supply to operate).
Our unique Mobile Fire Trailer allows firefighters to battle any class of fire and fight it more cost efficiently and effectively without relying on electronics or computers.
Fire Trailer Components
The Firefox Mobile Fire Trailer uses top quality components.
The pump is an 11 HP Honda engine (most reliable in the industry) combined with a CET fire pump (best known in the industry), delivering 100 gpm at 100 PSI which is more than enough for water only. It will also deliver a 1%-6% mixture of water-enhancing gel at a flow rate of 15 gpm at 100 PSI using our special gel nozzle.
We also have a garden hose assembly that connects to a five gallon forestry kit which will produce a 3 gpm flow rate. We use a FireDos mechanical proportioner that premixes the gel or foams and only requires water flow to operate.
All equipment is mounted on shear cups which act as shock absorbers to reduce transportation stress.
The Water Tank is a 525 gallon ribbed Poly Tank manufactured by Norwesco. It is rugged and sturdy to withstand the rigors of being transported on rough roads.
Hoses and Fittings
The hoses, fittings and connections are also top quality to ensure long lasting use and reliability.
The trailer itself is a durable equipment/construction trailer with a tandem axle rated to a 14,000 lb GVRW.
The trailer weighs less than 10,000 lbs (just over 4500kg) with a full water tank.
Efficient Firefighting System
This Firefox Mobile Fire Trailer is less expensive than conventional mobile fire fighting systems as it is trailer mounted for greater portability and mobility and can be taken into very remote areas when required. It can be used as a first response initial attack unit since it is possible to operate it with one person, although two is preferable.
In comparison, most first response units require three to four operators before it can leave base. Fewer operators reduces initial response time which can translate into structures being saved, not to mention reducing the burden of a fire insurance claim.
When using our water enhancing gel as the suppression agent there is an even greater opportunity for reduced water consumption as the gel creates a thermal barrier which retards the advance of the fire. In most cases the gel suppresses the fire completely with no opportunity for a re-ignition.
