Client: Quik Corp Fire Engineering
Location: Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
Application: Fire Appliance
Brief: Quik Corp Fire Engineering design and manufacture a range of specialised fire and emergency equipment. By working with Queensland Rural Fire Service, the Australian Department of Defence, New South Wales National Parks, Forestry plantations and mining corporations in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the Phillipines, Quik Corp understand only to well the value design, experience and quality play in making their equipment. In this particular instance Quik Corp were commissioned to design and build a Remote Fire Appliance used as an Airport Fire Appliance.
Jaws of Life on heavy duty slides
Solution: Built on a 6000L MAN 6×4 chassis the Remote Fire Appliance needed to pack a stretcher mounted inside a locker complete with all the equipment for a rescue situation. The sliding locker needed to be accessible from only one side and needed to be fully extended to make access and reloading faster and easier. Extra storage was also needed for further emergency kit, but due to the height of the appliance, and to allow viewing of equipment and ease of access, Chambrelan’s slide and tilt drawer system was fitted together with the Slam Lock and handle and the draws used both Chambrelan’s heavy duty RA7R and heavy duty RA5R

In addition further road crash rescue equipment mounted on Chambrelan RA7R 450mm closed length full extension which also incorporate Chambrelan’s Slam Lock fitted with the lock in / lock out (LILO) option.
Feedback: “Being a builder of emergency equipment our paramount concern is reliability of all components we install on our vehicles. Chambrelan’s wide range of sliding systems and the companies dedication to quality, was the reason we recently changed to Chambrelan for all our heavy duty slide requirements.” Tim Syben, Quik Corp Fire Engineering
