At the flick of a switch, the system lowers the ladders to a comfortable level for retrieval.
The QUIC-LIFT system at a glance:
The basic system is made of high strength lightweight cast aluminum and has a depth of 6", less ladders. Powered by two durable high cycle 12V electric actuators.The system has a maximum load of ladders, hard sleeves, etc. of 300 lbs. The manual or electric locking systems are recommended whenever a hard sleeve tray is mounted over the LAS or HSS systems. Systems have been tested over more than 5,000 operating cycles. QUIC-LIFT Ladder Access System (LAS) mounts on horizontal and/or vertical surface. Ladders remain close to the apparatus when lowered.
Base castings come in sets of two. Systems are easily installed on existing pumpers or tankers and require 12 VDC controlled by 30 amp two-pole, double-throw momentary switch (provided.) The switch should be mounted outside the operational envelope of the system in a location providing the operator with an uninterrupted view of ladders and personnel during removal and storage operations.
Works with aluminum ladders and hard sleeves commonly carried on fire apparatus. Requires a minimum compartment shelf of 13" deep. Keeps ladders and hard sleeves close to the vehicle, when lowered, for tight apparatus positioning. Flashing light kit provided to produce a visual signal when the system is out of the stored position.
Mounting brackets may be attached to castings for storage of folding ladders and pike poles. Total height, above the mounting shelf is 33" for ladders and 30" for hard sleeves. Lowers ladders and hard sleeves 31" from the stored position.
At the flick of the control switch, the QUIC-LIFT system automatically lowers any standard aluminum ladder to a convenient height for safe and easy removal. The only device of its type, the system reduces the chance of back or shoulder injury while conserving the firefighter's energy for more critical tasks.
