Our mobile units have a very unique, innovative and fully patented design that allows the props to open and close, from the traveling position to the training position, with the use of two heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders. The same hydraulic cylinders are then used to raise and lower the roofing platform to the desired pitch for training.
Mobile FireVent units can be equipped to be “self contained” with everything needed for training; saws, ladders forcible entry tools etc. This is very beneficial so that no equipment is taken off of first out engine companies, which may delay response times. When firefighters are dispatched to a call they can leave the unit quickly without having to put equipment back into service. Mobile FireVent units can easily be moved from station to station, enabling duty crews to train between calls and when it is convenient for them.
Mobile FireVent units are much more than just ventilation props; the are multi-discipline training units. There are three base model units that can be customized and configured with numerous options to meet your department’s needs (see Available Options menu).
