Bronto Skylift products are designed and launched as ranges, not individual pieces of equipment. The advanced modularity allows countless customer specific variations based on their needs and national regulations.
Bronto Skylift’s appliances for rescue and fire fighting cover the rescue heights up to 112 metres. The best sellers are the aerial ladder platforms which have a telescopic boom combined with a ladder and a rescue cage – a concept launched by Bronto Skylift in the 1980’s offering extensive outreach and up-and-over capability as well as rescuing with the cage and by the ladder. The ultimate in high rise rescue is Bronto Skylift’s range of articulating platforms. This range includes the world’s highest truck mounted aerial platform with the rescue height of 112 metres. All units have an integrated waterway. With a remote controlled water monitor, unmanned extinguishing is also possible in case of extensive fires with a danger of explosion. Additionally, with the availability of compressed air, electric powerline, hydraulic pressure, breathing air and the fold-down rescue platform in the cage, it is also extremely valuable for the rescue operations. With the above mentioned power supplies in the cage a wide variety of electric, compressed air and hydraulic power tools can be operated from the cage. Also other means of rescue systems can be used for added operational versatility: rescue chutes, winches etc.
All Bronto Skylift aerial applications can be mounted onto standard truck chassis and can therefore be driven in ordinary traffic. Setting up the equipment at destination does not require special preparations either – even the highest 112 metre unit is up at the destination in few minutes.
