The Metz L27 (DLAK 18/12) impresses with its compact design. With a width of 2.40 m and a permissible total weight of just 13 t, it is ideal for narrow streets and historic districts.
With its lightweight cage, the L32 achieves a rescue height of more than 31 m and a working height of up to 33 m. It provides maximum reach and stability in any situation thanks to the ground pressure detection by means of supporting force measurement and a variable jacking width of up to 4.85 m. The automatic leveling system also offers the highest operational comfort.
Cars in the process of parking, lush city greenery, narrow streets. The operational areas of aerial ladders are becoming tighter. Our answer to this is the Metz XS. With it the setup range becomes much more flexible. Its compact action radius provides rescuers access to the scene in the tightest, previously unreachable, conditions.
The Metz L39 and the Metz L41 expand on the L32 concept with a functional set of ladders for working heights of up to 41 m. The aerial ladders thus remain compact and maneuverable.
With the Metz L56 and Metz L62 aerial ladders, rescue capacity, lifting speed and safety are of the highest priority.
Thanks to the increased lifting capacity of up to three people, 50% more people can be rescued. With a lifting speed of 1.4 m/s, the powerful aerial ladders reach the working height of up to 62 m very quickly.
The support guides are integrated into the frame to maximize the important stability during operations. Major advantages of the proven Metz support technology are:
- Individual adjustment to the terrain or street conditions
- No stumbling blocks for emergency personnel or passers-by
- Easily visible to operators and emergency personnel
- Easily visible to passing trucks
Lowest possible underfloor area
Thanks to their variable jacking system, Metz aerial ladders reach an angle of inclination of up to –22° of the ladder set.
The ladder is the core
The patented box-node construction ensures a uniformly distributed transmission of force in the top and bottom belts and thus increases the torsional stiffness of the overall ladder set. This increases the step-through width to 54 cm on the top part of the ladder section. Thanks to the large rung gap, the ladder set can also be climbed without rung over rung. This is an important technical detail if the response personnel have to lean the cage against a window or a balcony. Especially in these sort of operational situations rung alignement is rarely achieved. With Metz aerial ladders, the drive speed is proportionally regulated via an intuitive opposite-steering of the joystick.
The 450 kg rescue cage - truly versatile
- The cage technology from Metz has always been in a class of its own in terms of functionality, usability, safety and space. A quantum leap was achieved thanks to continuous development: lighter, more comfortable and up to four people in the cage.
- Depending on requirements, the cage can be accessed from any side. The ladder set is accessed comfortably and safely via the rear entry point. The folding steps integrated into the middle entry point also serve as entry assistant on uneven ground or when climbing onto a balcony.
The podium is screwed together and consists of anodized, extruded aluminum profiles, R11 anti-slip safety coating and bar locks.
The equipment stored in it is secured by suitable fastenings. This combination ensures safety and durability.
Modern CAN bus control
The proven Metz CAN-Bus control system, as well as clearly arranged symbols and display instruments guarantee the operator the highest degree of safety and simplest operation in stressful operating situations.
The operation is simplified thanks to control functions like VRS for shaft rescue, or TMS to repeatedly drive freely selectable paths of the ladder. Through the "service4fire“ remote diagnostic software, all the control info of an aerial ladder can be retrieved and viewed at any time.
Different operating elements
The FA versions ("First Attack“) turn the original rescue equipment into a universal rescue and firefighting vehicle. The body components can be individually equipped with extinguishing pumps, extinguishing agent tanks, crew cabs, rapid intervention system and technical equipment, including hydraulic rescue tools for the most varied of operational uses.
Old town alleys, narrow passages, historical firehouses with low gate heights - some operational sites require aerial ladders with the small possible height. The Metz XF version really shows what it can do in these situations.
Thanks to an ultra-flat, highly stable substructure, the XF variant achieves the best overall heights. Depending on chassis and type of ladder, it stays below 3 m of height.
The XF version is available for the Metz L27, L32, L32A, L32A XS and L39 aerial ladders.
From firefighting calls to firefighting calls
New developments and advancements of the Metz aerial ladders and aerial platforms are based on our practical experience. We react immediately and consistently to ever-changing operational conditions. Our focus is always on the usability for firefighters. That is the reason why fire departments all over the world rely on Metz.
