All the strength of E-ONE’s aluminum aerial is now available in steel. E-ONE, an industry-leading fire truck manufacturer of REV Group, is showcasing the revolutionary HPS 100 steel platform during FDIC International 2016, the world’s largest gathering of fire professionals, slotted for April 21-23 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. E-ONE is based in Ocala, Fla.
The HPS 100 steel platform boasts the same E-ONE aerial “DNA” — a 2.5 to 1 structural safety factor, integral torque box chassis and a crisscross, under-slung jack system. E-ONE has earned a reputation of reliability in the industry from a 30-plus-year track record of building on these solid design elements that make up its aerial system. The tried-and-true design of E-ONE is expanded with the HPS 100 Platform’s 100-foot vertical reach and 1,305-lb. platform capacity.
From the very efficient high-strength DOMEX® steel to its innovative greaseless roller system, the new HPS 100 capitalizes on the superior performance of the E-ONE aerial system with an innovative new steel ladder,” said Jim Salmi, E-ONE Director of Aerial Development. “Keeping the E-ONE aerial DNA was the challenge on this product, yet we have accomplished the task with overwhelmingly positive results.”
During FDIC International, E-ONE will display this unit among 20,000 square feet of REV booth space (Booth 5300). The fire truck manufacturer will be among good companies, sharing space with sister ambulance brands Horton Ambulance, Wheeled Coach, Road Rescue, America Emergency Vehicles and McCoy Miller Emergency Vehicles.
Like its aluminum counterpart, the HPS 100 Platform has the toughest cab in the business with more than twice the frontal impact required by NFPA and more than five times the static roof load of other aerials.
Plus, the HPS 100 Platform features the most innovative technologies to keep crews safe, while the crisscross, under-slung outriggers deploy to a tight 15’ 6” spread in less than 45 seconds, allowing the HPS 100 to go where other aerials can’t, and all in industry-leading record time.
“Given E-ONE’s reputation in aerials, there is considerable interest in what we can bring to the steel market,” Salmi said.BACK TO NEWS
