One of our specialities: Custom-tailored in large sizes.

Standard products are not of much use when nothing is defined by standards, when everything has to be custom-made and individually adapted. Industrial fire engine are so unique, they have to be configured to exactly meet the customer's needs, which are typically highly specialised. Two or three-axle chassis variants with strong engines, different cab sizes, all types and quantities of extinguishing agents, special proportioning systems, high-performance pumps, monitors, telescopic extinguishing booms, lighting systems, winches, special load configurations: Vehicles that combine all that to form a 100% deployment-ready unit can't be just thrown together. They require an enormous amount of engineering expertise, long years of experience and a horizon that goes well beyond the workbench – put simply: Professionalism That's also a standard. And it's our standard.

Unique detailed solutions for special fire engines for the industry, refinery and chemicals sectors.

You specify the requirements, we'll build the vehicle. Special fire-fighting chassis variants are available in any desired tonnage. We can realize the ideal solution for you with a wide range of cab variants and highly flexible superstructure concepts.

    Superstructure concept: Internal tank

    Superstructure concept: Internal tank

    If the focus is on equipment and the crew, then a superstructure concept with an internal modular tank is ideal. It offers plenty of storage space and maximum flexibility for loading according to tactical necessity and individual requirements.

    High-volume superstructures

    This concept offers plenty of storage space alongside the tanks. Lowered equipment lockers (some optional) between and behind the axles add even more available space.

    Modular tank system

    The modular system is flexible – both in terms of water and foam volume and in the position of the tanks in the vehicle. Three different tank widths are available. Narrow tanks allow deeper equipment lockers. Tailor-made extinguishing medium solutions are available due to different tank widths and modular foam tank combinations.

    The tail-mounted Magirus pump is powered by a chassis motor via a drive shaft. The built-in fire pump is connected to the fire-fighting water tank and the rapid water release unit or (as an option) to the quick attack hose reel. The low pump control stand features ergonomic operation. The pump valve in suction intake A enables input pressure of up to 10 bar. That means that higher hydrant pressures or pumping water over long distances is no problem. Foam proportioning systems can be integrated on request.

  • Magirus CaddiCAFS

    Magirus CaddiCAFS

    The Magirus CaddiCAFS compressed air foam system is a highly efficient yet extremely easy-to-operate extinguishing system. It combines the benefits of the high-performance Magirus centrifugal pump, the exact regulation of the CaddiSYS pressure foam proportioning system and high-energy compressed air.

    It can be configured for one-touch operation to automatically activate the following procedures:

    • Starting the vehicle engine
    • Engaging the P.T.O.
    • Bringing the pump to optimum output pressure
    • Activating the pressure foam proportioning system , which then mixes at the optimal proportioning rate
    • Compressor introduces compressed air into the water/foam compound flow
    • Compressed air foam is emitted

    Using the system as a pure pressure foam-proportioning system (without compressed air) is just as easy as a switchover between wet and dry foam at the push of a button.

    Your security:

    • Maximal reliability: In case of a compressed-air failure, the foam proportioning remains active; in case of a proportioning failure, the water stream is transported to the nozzle without obstruction: One-touch operation
    • Compressed air components are not activated until the foam compound is proportioned
    • Compressor and pump temperatures are monitored
    • System is not disturbed by wastewater
    • Optimum system cooling using water/oil heat exchanger; Made with reliable, inspected standard industrial components
    • Reliability through CAN-bus control
    • Protection against accidental selection of dry instead of wet foam

  • Cab

    Cab

    Ready, Set – Go.

    How efficiently and safely an operation runs isn't decided when you arrive at the scene of action, but on your way there. This is why the practical layout of the driver's cab and crew compartment is just as important to us as the way the equipment lockers are designed. We offer two different technologies for three applications.

  • All-steel technology

    All-steel technology

    All-steel technology

    From a single mould: The special Magirus Fire-fighting chassis variants have crew compartments using all-steel technology integrated during vehicle assembly. As with mass-produced vehicles, cataphoretic full-immersion bath priming and several coats of paint guarantee optimum corrosion protection. The cab can be tilted hydraulically and is mounted on silent blocks. Thanks to generous side windows and an additional middle window, the crew members have an unusually good all-round view.

    The generous height and width provide plenty of space for the crew. Three BA devices are available that face against the direction of travel; in addition, two BA devices can be installed facing the direction of travel. These are integrated in the rear wall of the cab so that no space is lost on the front superstructure wall and nothing interferes with the vehicle's torsional flexibility.
