COMFORT ladder lowering device
The COMFORT ladder lowering device is a safe to operate, electrical
system. It is used to hold 2- and 3-section extension and scaling
ladders, as well as suction hoses and other items of equipment.
However, its prime function is simple ladder loading and unloading.
The COMFORT ladder lowering device is universal and does not require
any preparation of the vehicle for mounting. With a frame length
of 2,950 mm and a cradle length of 5,000 mm, this versatile system
can be employed on any standard fire brigade vehicle superstructure.
More room for loading
As a result of a height of just 190 mm, the system offers more room
for loading (e.g. two ladders can be stacked on top of each other).
The ladder cradle widths of 500, 540 and 600 mm permit optimised,
space-saving roof loading, as well as the additional storage of
suction hoses along the sides.
The high load bearing capacity of up to 150 kg allows
the addition of, e.g. suction hoses or a second ladder, whereby
the accessories on offer mean that these items to be individually
loaded and unloaded without any complications.
Press button run-out
The extension ladders and hoses are loaded into the aluminium cradle.
This can be run out from the back of the vehicle electrically, by
means of a toothed rack and is then lowered using spring suspension
into an ergonomic position for ladder removal by means of press
Safe and ergonomic loading and unloading
Safety and ergonomics for the fire-fighter represented the absolute
top priority during the development of the COMFORT ladder lowering
system. Consequently, as a result of a final cradle position below
30°, there is little physical effort involved for the fire-fighter.
The electrical drive is also safely hidden, which is another safety
