| In addition to designing and fabricating fire
apparatus, GK also performs modifications and enhancements to existing
apparatus, regardless of manufacturer.Gowans-Knight was pleased to assist the
Norfolk (CT) Volunteer Fire Department with upgrades to their Tanker 10
including; New stainless steel A.H. Stock Newton swivel chute with electrically
actuated extension, new, electrically activated dump valve, and a rear view
camera with 7" color display. See the "before" photos shown below. We
removed the old steel dump valve which was manually operated. The manual
bolt-on chutes were mounted to the rear step. We moved the rear lights lower so
they were not obstructed by the new chute, and installed the rear view camera.
The result is far more efficient and safer system !
