Everything is new with the Rosenbauer roll containers, the name, the design, the materials, the connection technology, the load capacity, the operating concept, castors and braking system and the possible variations.
The containers with the designation RTE RC Profile (Rosenbauer Technical Equipment Roll Container Profile) consist of anodized extruded aluminum profiles that are positively joined and screwed together by special corner connections. This ensures exceptional stability and durability and allows the containers to be loaded with a total weight of up to 700 kg (dead weight: around 50 kg).
The profiles are also chamfered on the sides, making them easier to maneuver in tight spaces and reducing the risk of injury (no annoying outer edges). Even with a load of several hundred kilograms, an RTE RC Profile can be moved effortlessly and safely by one person. On the one hand, this has to do with the new, easy-to-run and particularly robust castors (diameter 200 mm, tread made of polyurethane) and, on the other hand, with the ergonomic, likewise newly developed single-bar control.
The orange handle bar only needs to be pushed down slightly with minimal force and without spreading fingers to set a container in motion. If one lets go of it, it automatically folds up, disappears into the body and the RTE RC Profile comes to a standstill quickly and by itself (dead man's brake).
Different body designs
The new Rosenbauer roll containers can be realized in different size and weight classes and different body designs
Depending on the load weight, the new Rosenbauer roll cages can be equipped with two (up to 450 kg) or four (up to 700 kg) braked castors. The braking system (cone or drum brakes) is protected and integrated into the base plate, rollers and brakes are attached so that they do not protrude beyond the base plate and interfere with maneuvering.
Optionally, the front and rear rollers can be straightened using the handle bar side (straight-line positioning device). The new Rosenbauer roll containers can be realized in different size and weight classes and different body designs. Depending on the transport purpose, they are available in a plateau and frame design, with cover plate, shelves, mesh walls and numerous other accessories such as forklift runners, crane eyes or a towing eye for loading with a cable winch.
Compressed air cylinders
On request, they can also be equipped with LED lighting, which consists of floor washlights on the one hand and LED strips integrated into the profiles on the other.
In addition to completely custom-made containers and freely selectable equipment variants for standard models, Rosenbauer also offers complete solutions for certain purposes: for example the RTE RC ‘suction point’ profile with portable pump, suction hoses and accessories, the RTE RC ‘grid box’ profile, the RTE RC ‘hose’ profile, the RTE RC profile’ breathing air cylinders’ for up to 24 compressed air cylinders or the RTE RC profile’ water damage’ with submersible pumps and associated equipment, to name just a few of the numerous variants.
Reliable locking mechanism
The new Rosenbauer roll containers are TÜV-tested and have a standard loading area of 1,200 x 800 mm (EU pallet dimensions). Special dimensions are also possible. The containers are secured in the vehicle using a rail system with a simple and reliable locking mechanism (clamping lever, suitable for airline rails), which can be installed not only in fire brigade vehicles but also in any logistics vehicle with a loading area.
This means that the RTE RC profiles are also suitable for other applications and emergency organizations. Versatile, ergonomic, powerful, the new Rosenbauer roll containers combine everything that is important in use.
