With the B34 2.0, Rosenbauer presents the next generation of its standard aerial rescue platform. It has been revised in major parts and equipped with new, weight-optimized components. Weight could be saved with both the aerial rescue set and the rescue cage without sacrificing robustness and rigidity. A newly developed telescope ensures that the arm set can be extended further than with a B32 and that a rescue height of 34 meters can be reached with the basket attached.
High-strength steels bring the required strength and robustness into the telescope, the proven Rosenbauer horizontal-vertical support with stepless support width detection guarantees a secure stand in every situation. The B34 becomes a fully-fledged fire-fighting device thanks to the rescue ladder attached to the aerial rescue kit. A major advantage of the weight optimization is that the B34 does not require a three-axle chassis, but can be built on a two-axle vehicle with a gross vehicle weight of 18 t.
fire fighting equipment
This also applies to the generally somewhat heavier Scania chassis and is a unique selling point on the market. The vehicle has an HLM safety platform with two spacious equipment compartments on each side of the vehicle and is fully equipped with LED technology (lighting on the deck, surrounding area, access and equipment compartment lighting, headlights and speed cameras). A special highlight is the newly redesigned rescue cage. The basket load is 500 kg with extensive equipment.
One can also equip it with a pump and tank themselves and expand it into a first-time use, i.e. first-attack device
The rescue cage of the B34 is prepared for the various application scenarios in just a few simple steps, all the adapters and attachments required are stored in the vehicle. By opening the front cage, front one can get into the rescue cage without barriers. The B34 2.0 also has basic fire fighting equipment consisting of a feed in the rear of the vehicle, a telescopic water riser (TWS) and a turret on the front of the cage.
Numerous automatic functions
Its extinguishing performance has been increased to 3,800 l / min, which is almost 30 percent more than was previously possible. The B34 is therefore always ready for an extinguishing attack from a height and only needs to be connected to the pump of a fire truck. One can also equip it with a pump and tank themselves and expand it into a first-time use, i.e. first-attack device.
Numerous automatic functions facilitate the operation of the device, every movement is monitored, every force that acts on the aerial rescue set or the people in the basket is permanently determined and used to release the greatest possible radius of action. Operators can see immediately whether the work area is restricted in a certain direction, whether the cage has reached the limit of its load-bearing capacity or the ground pressure of the supports is no longer sufficient for safe operation.
The high-performance hydraulics ensure fast movement and set-up times
The user has their device fully under control in every phase of an operation, regardless of whether they operate it from the main control station on the vehicle or from the basket at a height of 34 m. The high-performance hydraulics ensure fast movement and set-up times. The new B34 2.0 complements the Rosenbauer stage range in the standard height range and is offered in addition to the well-established B32.
The technical requirement that they have to meet is the same for both of them, namely to ensure maximum safety and performance at high altitude.
