The ALKE electric vehicles are also available fitted with the latest high performance and extremely versatile firefighter system. This system is composed of a module equipped with a wrap-wheel with a 100m hose pipe and a fire-prevention spray gun.
Once the user is on-site with the electric ALKE' vehicle he can select the right extinguishing for the class of fire and can change it at any time when putting out the fire on the spray gun itself, using the specific selector. The following options are available: water, air foam, carbon dioxide foam, carbon dioxide. The user can select the various types of jets on the spray gun itself according to requirements.
The possibility to control everything from the firefighter spray gun allows you to work directly and continuously with a single operator who can change the settings on-site according to the fire and the materials involved, without having to have a second operator on board the machine who works from a distance with all the difficulties that entails (difficult communication at the location of the fire, loss of valuable time in putting out the fire, interruption of the flow when changing the settings, etc).
firefighter utility vehicles here are the types of jets available
- Water: Full jet, Narrow fan pattern, Wide fan pattern, Jet spray
- Air foam: Water with additive (Wetting agent), Low expansion foam, Medium expansion foam
- Carbon dioxide foam: Low expansion CO2 foam, Medium expansion CO2 foam
- Carbon dioxide: CO2 jet filling closed volumes (e.g. electric panels and systems)
The use of electric vehicles instead of combustion vehicles as a base for firefighter utility vehicles is fundamental in many environments where the mobility of traditional vehicles is incompatible with current norms or with the safety of the sites in question or with the environmental polices that have been adopted (for example, hospitals, shopping centres, airport terminals, warehouses, museums or cultural sites, covered car parks, large tourist structures like resorts or camp sites, etc).
This firefighter module is compatible with all the electric vehicles in the ATX range, and also with the ATX230ED vehicle double cab that can transport 4 people in addition to the load cell, the choice of the specific model is usually related to the dimension of the water/extinguisher tanks and the autonomy of the batteries required and by the maximum negotiable slope.
