Bristol unveils its Made in UAE firefighting truck at Intersec
Bristol, the Dubai-based leader in fire protection services and equipment, today unveiled its latest innovative firefighting technologies and systems at the Intersec, which starts today in Dubai. During the 3 days of expo, the company will showcase a variety of products including a UAE-built firetruck, superior fire suppression systems and powerful water pump solutions.
This year at the event, Bristol’s presence is dominated by the large-scale Al Shallal firefighting truck, made in the UAE to strict US-led design and specification guidelines. The Al Shallal is a heavy-duty industrial fire truck built to serve clients in the regional and global oil and gas, power and industrial sectors as well as municipal civil defense units.
Designed to combat flammable liquid and gas fires, the Al Shallal truck can tackle a range of large-scale emergencies with its highly effective ‘attack’ capabilities. It is able to flow upwards up to 40,000 liters of water and foam per minute through its three roof-monitors, the Al Shallal truck also carries dry chemical powder that can be applied to a blaze using its patented Hydro-chem technology.
The large size and impressive capacity of the heavy-duty industrial fire truck, coupled with an attractive and affordable price point, makes it the ideal vehicle for industrial firefighting and civil defense departments.
Mahmoud Awad, Managing Director at Bristol, said “As a regional leader with global presence, in the field of fire safety and protection, Bristol is proud to consistently bring the latest technologies to our clients in the local market through our participation at Intersec.
“These three products represent the highest standards of firefighting technologies that have been designed to offer efficient and reliable solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing industries and civil defense departments across the Gulf. By introducing these systems to our clients at Intersec, Bristol is contributing to the important and ongoing efforts to improve and constantly update vital fire-safety equipment and procedures across the region.”
The company believes that the Al Shallal truck has a significant appeal to GCC customers given its timely delivery and convenient after-sales support and technical services for both the super structure and chassis, offering considerable advantages over imported vehicles.
