Rosenbauer rolled-out their RDL (Rapid Deploy Light tower), an auto-deploying pneumatic LED scene light tower, at its annual dealer meeting in Sioux Falls, SD. Upon activation, a tower deploys to a height of eight-feet with the capability of extending up to 20-feet under manual control.
Two versions of the RDL will be available from Rosenbauer:
• RDL-S features four stationary 120v LED Whelen Pioneer light heads which illuminate 360°
• RDL-M features four adjustable 120v LED Whelen Pioneer light heads. Each light head is capable of moving up to 90° to align with two others to provide up to three light heads shining in one direction.
“Our RDL is a complement to our CleanLocker and the RDT system to help firefighters save time when they arrive on-scene,” explained Scott Oyen, CEO of Rosenbauer South Dakota. “As the apparatus arrives, the FOA or officer would activate the entire CleanLocker system for quick access to clean turnout gear and for RDT to deploy rescue tools and equipment at the rear of the apparatus. Its’ all about being efficient on-scene.”
Rosenbauer will display the RDL-M on-display in April 2019 at the Fire Department Instructor’s Conference (FDIC) International in the Indiana Convention Center, Exhibit Hall J at booth 5200.
