protecting your equipment
and your people
Properly mounted equipment and thoughtfully organized storage compartments are an important and vastly underutilized element in maintaining a professional, uncomplicated, and intuitive fire apparatus. Below we have listed a few of the reasons why you might want to consider outfitting your truck with equipment mounts.
» Truck checks now take less time because equipment doesn't move around.
» There is minimized confusion on scene when looking for equipment because it's always in the same spot.
» Equipment is easier to access, decreasing the chance of injury from awkward lifts.
» Equipment does not get damaged from shifting in the compartment and hitting against other equipment.
» Less chance of equipment loss if doors are accidentally left open while driving.
» Adds to the professional look of the fire department.
At ShadowHawk we offer a wide variety of different mounting solutions to meet your needs. Whether you simply need a mount for one piece of equipment or are looking to outfit your entire apparatus, we can accommodate you.
Organizing a fire apparatus is a lot like piecing together a puzzle. At ShadowHawk we understand with most of the departments in our area being volunteer run, they don't necessarily have the time, expertise, or desire to plan, build, and install mounts in their apparatus' compartments. That's where we come in, we want you to use our mounting expertise! We'll sit down with you to discuss your needs, and then get to work designing each compartment. Once we get your approval we'll acquire the necessary parts and product for the project. Sometimes that requires building custom boards and mounts in addition to using the more out of box solutions such as PAC Brackets. Once that's done, we will come out to your location and install everything on site! We do on site installation because we want you to be back in service as quickly as possible, it also allows you to oversee the installation and suggest any changes if necessary.
