Making a splash
U.S. fire safety specialist Elkhart Brass has unveiled the BrushHawk monitor, which it describes as the most compact model in its class.4 Aug 2020 Trendspots Editorial Office
Based in the U.S. state of Indiana, the Elkhart Brass Manufacturing Company sees itself as the industry's most experienced manufacturer of innovative firefighting and fire protection equipment. This claim is backed up by over 2,000 products that can be used in virtually all areas of firefighting. Elkhart Brass products are found in fire departments around the world, building systems and off-shore drilling sites, as well as in military, marine and industrial firefighting applications. The company has now launched a new remote-controlled mobile monitor designed primarily for fighting wildfires.
The BrushHawk's small swing radius and low stow height make it the most compact monitor in its class, according to the manufacturer. Elkhart Brass thus sees this as the ideal solution for the naturally limited bumper space on brush and wildland trucks. For some time now, these all-terrain and agile emergency vehicles have been a tried-and-tested means of effectively fighting wildfires in the United States and a number of other countries. Using CANbus technology, the space-saving BrushHawk comes with a joystick that features nozzle fog and stream controls and also includes on/off and trigger control functions for the optional valve kit.
