At the Interschutz 2010 in Leipzig, Rosenbauer presented the newest generation of the AT. The "Fire Truck of the Future" boasts 90 new innovations. It is now more compact, more functional and higher in quality; all reasons for laudable comments from countless visitors.
Flexible Body Concept
Two features make the new AT stand out: It is compact and high in quality. The loading volume to outside dimension ratio was increased further. A new system of profile rails that can be aligned down to the millimeter has been introduced for mounting shelves, transverse panels etc. The new body concept also enabled the weight to be reduced further. This enables larger tanks with volumes of up to 7,500 liters to be built into the truck, and greater loads to be carried. All compartments can be adjusted flexibly and the vehicle can be loaded at an equal level across its complete width. Detailed solutions add to the improved space utilization in the body: higher full height compartments, storage space in the folding access steps, vertical storage compartments at the rear, etc. A new torsion spring system was developed in order to ensure a quick and safe removal of equipment. It can be fitted with one-finger safety catches so single-handed removal is realized almost in the complete new AT. A new color concept supports the crew in the intuitive operation of the vehicle.
Ergonomics on the Vehicle
There is also more room in the crew cabin thanks to a new system of docking to the driving compartment. It is now also better protected against noise and lighted completely glare-free. The seats offer improved side support due to the new seat and back cushions. They can be equipped with seat belts, a seat belt tightening system and rollover side airbags. Furthermore, each seat can be enhanced with a modern communications system. The crew cabin doors are either completely or partially made of glass depending on the wishes of the fire department. The advantage of the glass door is that it creates better lighting conditions in the cabin and enables obstacles next to the vehicle to be seen before exiting. Once the operation area has been reached, the driver merely has to push a single button and the vehicle is secured. Depending on the customer's wishes, the new operation button automatically turns on the warning lights, the road hazard traffic control device, the scene lighting system as well as the pump and partially deploys the light tower with its lights already on.
Intelligent Firefighting as well as New Lighting and Control Technology
In terms of firefighting technology the new AT also has a lot to offer. For example a new central water axis controls the logical water distribution to where it is needed at the time. On the subject of lighting and control technology, the new AT relies completely on the new LED technology which is practically used throughout the whole vehicle. Find out more on these or other topics concerning the new AT in the next edition of our newsletter. Your Rosenbauer sales team is looking forward to your inquiries and feedback.
