Bristol Unveils Made in UAE FireTruck
Bristol, the Dubai-based leader in fire protection services and equipment, unveiled the latest innovative firefighting technologies and systems at the Intersec exhibition and conference held in Dubai.
Bristol’s presence at the exhibition 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.
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.
Built locally in the UAE using a commercial truck chassis rather than a custom model, 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.
Also presented at this year’s Intersec is Bristol’s Containerized Firefighting Pump Set, a precision-made unit created for environments and locations where access to proper firefighting equipment and sufficiently pressurized water is an issue.
The Containerized Firefighting Pump Set can be easily deployed to offer clients access to essential fire-safety systems, particularly in remote areas or at facilities where space is limited. Targeted industries include oil and gas, power and construction.
Mahmoud Awad, Managing Director of Bristol, said: “These 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.”
