Quick Attack System
The Barricade II Quick Attack system can be quickly deployed, is simple to operate and allows for easy clean-up.
The Barricade II Quick Attack is an end of the line application system that gives the firefighter mobility and flexibility. Simply connect the nozzle to the desired hose and attach the container of Barricade concentrate and you are ready to go. With the Barricade II Quick Attack, the firefighter has the option of using the standard 19mm, 25mm or 38mm fire hose. The Barricade II Quick Attack allows for the use of self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and has the ability to coat 5 square metres in one minute and 15 seconds with 690 Kpa at the nozzle.
The Barricade II Quick Attack system comes with an adjustable inline-metering device. This metering device allows the fire fighter to “Dial Up” the appropriate concentration for the task at hand. With settings from plain water to low concentrations for enhanced extinguishing, to thick concentrations for adhesion to vertical and horizontal surfaces, the Barricade II Quick Attack is the tool that the Fire Service and Institutional sector has been looking for.
The standard packaging for Barricade II gel is in 3.8 litre containers that are ideal for the homeowner or industrial user as the containers connect directly to the Home Fire Defence System and Quick Attack System nozzles.
19 litre drums are available as are larger bulk containers.
Other Application Systems
Other application systems available include pressurized “Pump Pak” back pack systems which contain 19 litres of Barricade II concentrate and a system to pressurize the concentrate to ensure correct proportioning in low water pressure situations. In most cases, standard Fire Service Equipment can also be used.
Akron Brass is introducing a new heavy duty, Pyrolite® 1″ self-educting gel nozzle. This new nozzle has an easy to clean back-flush option for effortless cleaning of gel from the nozzle after use.
