| Our Platform Aerials
are anything but standard. And since our apparatus are
individually built and customized specifically for each
of our customers, sky is the limit as far as choices.
The platforms can be positioned from 75 degrees to -12
degrees allowing fire fighters more flexibility in operations.
All our aerials have high handrails and provide an unobstructed
walkway from turntable to tip. And each platform is built
with a spacious 19 sq. ft. of usable area and feature
corner-style gates. Our aerials use a 3 1/2" fly
section waterway resulting in 2000 gpm flows on platforms.
Platforms are equipped with automatic overload protection
allowing elevation and retraction of the aerial only when
in a compromising configuration.
Hot-dipped galvanized outriggers
are corrosion resistant and standard on all Aerials and
Platforms. Each joystick controls outrigger extension,
out-and-down functions either simultaneously or separately.
All controls are lighted on the
turntable console and arranged for user-friendly operation.
A loadminder gauge and 2-way intercom are standard equipment.
With an optional radio remote control, all aerial proportional
controls and monitor nozzle functions can be controlled
up to 300 feet from the truck.
Two strategically placed heavy
duty, compact cylinders provide smooth, positive aerial
section extension and retraction. Extension cables pull
straight and true in vertically-mounted sheaves which
prolong cable life.
Unique, flexible E-tracking eliminates
stress on vital wiring components during extension and
Saves You Time
Optional hot-dipped galvanized
torque box, aerial and platform provide years of trouble-free
service. All inner and outer surfaces are completely immersed
in hot molten galvanizing material, virtually eliminating
potentital for corrosion and greatly reducing time spent
on service and maintenance.
Turntables feature eccentric planetary
drives that are adjustable for wear, resulting in positive
stop rotation. Upper and lower turntable bearing surfaces
are machined after welding, and bearing bolts are accessible
from the topside for re-torquing.
The platform leveling system uses
electric over hydraulic-powered cylinders and requires
no slave cylinders.
Over Hydraulic Soft Touch Controls
Feather-soft movement of all aerial
functions and Envelope Safety Protection (E.S.P.) prevents
cab and body damage from aerial movement. Both are standard
on all platforms (optional on other aerial devices). And
all aerial controls can be operated simultaneously without
loss of speed.
||Custom or Commercial
Dependent on budget and size of
your department, you can choice between a Custom or Commercial
Cab. Custom Chassis usually have a shorter wheelbase and
tighter turning radius and also allows room for growth
in your department in terms of seating. Commercial Cabs
are also a viable option with lots of horsepower and adequate
Hinged swing-out pump panels are
just one of the features Alexis builds into their apparatus
for ease of maintenance and reduced labor cost. Gauges
are easy to read with ergonomic controls.
Accessing your equipment quickly
and efficiently is at the utmost importance when you're
on the job. We are able to utilize areas for ample storage
space to store all of your loose equipment. Our compartments
are coated in a choice of either natural aluminum or zolatone
||Med Box and Other
Customizing your own Aerial apparatus
provides you the ability to utilize extra space especially
for your department. Extra storage, med boxes, etc. can
be designed and fabricated for your truck. And if you
have any unique ideas for your truck, just ask us. Our
engineering department is YOUR personal team of experts.
