Customised storage for fire engine equipment
A well-known manufacturer of special vehicles for fire-fighting, rescue and security industries, Carmichael Support Services, approached Minitec with a requirement to fit out a number of fire rescue vans for Scottish Fire and Rescue with customised cabinets for the storage of equipment on board.
The modular aluminium profile system manufactured by Minitec is ideal for constructing customised storage cabinets for a multitude of applications. Including a wide range of accessories the system is therefore highly flexible and can be easily installed by the client himself if required.
Minitec provided the client with a generic design for vehicle cabinets after which the company decided to purchase boxes of Minitec profiles and fasteners to make its own prototype units and bulk head screens. Rarely are two vehicles being converted exactly the same and the engineers at Carmichael Support Services were able to use the profile system easily to adapt designs for each type of vehicle being re-fitted.
The images show the bulkhead fitted with aluminium profiles and the system framing a storage compartment in the roof of the van.
Minitec was able to provide the customer with a kit of parts with self-assembly drawings, all within 1-2 weeks from receipt of the order with material being supplied from the extensive stocks held at the Basingstoke facility. To date 10 vehicles have been fitted out with more to come.
