Bulk Head Mounted Ladder System Complete Unit with Ladder Support
The QUIC-LIFT system at a glance:
The Bulk Head Mounted Ladder System allows mounting of the system on a vertical surface. It provides shelf storage space for hand tools, folding ladders, and other firefighting equipment. Similar to the standard Ladder Access System, this system may only be mounted on a vertical surface such as the hose bed wall. A backing plate should be used to distribute the load on the mounting surface.
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, with a maximum load of capacity of 300 lbs.
Systems are easily installed on existing pumpers or tankers and require 12vdc controlled by a 30 amp two-pole, double-throw momentary switch (provided). At the flick of a switch, the system lowers the ladders to a comfortable level for retrieval. 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. When lowered, keeps ladders and hard sleeves close to the vehicle, 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. Base castings come in sets of two. 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. 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.
