Specially Engineered for Fire & Rescue Vehicles
The Atlas™ chassis suspension is the ideal solution for aerials and pumpers to carry longer ladders and more equipment on a smaller chassis. The single drive axle suspension provides up to 35,000 lbs. of carrying capacity. Rest assured, the Atlas suspension was uniquely engineered for the requirements of fire and rescue market across North America. The robust design provides stability and mobility through tight corners and a smoother ride during high speeds in city streets.
Atlas is engineered from the ground up for the demanding life of fire and rescue vehicles. The suspension is designed with extra wide bearing surfaces to provide high yaw stability resulting in stable and predictable cornering. Each high-volume air spring absorbs road shock and vibration normally transmitted through the frame, thereby decreasing impact to the cab and load. Overall, the Atlas suspension offers safer onsite operation with dual height-control valves and integrated jounce bumpers for the safest, smoothest ride available.
But comfort doesn’t come as a compromise to durability. This unique design of Atlas suspension provides the carrying power and roll stability of a traditional steel spring suspension, without the uncomfortable ride – the ideal solution for both aerials and pumpers. Now you have the ability to match the demands of the most challenging emergency situations and not be left unprepared.
