Walk-in rescue bodies are designed for both function and safety. KME’s walk-in bodies are fabricated completely from 3/16” aluminum or 12-guage stainless steel with an integrated substructure of “like” body material. All body roofs are designed with 2”x2” structural tubing provided on 16” centers to provide maximum strength in protecting the crew. All roofs are seam welded to prevent water intrusion.
Rescue body interiors can be customized to the mission of your truck. Fire departments are not limited to pre-determined layouts, sizes and components. Interiors can be customized with seating, cabinets, command desks, receptacles, computer stations, refrigeration, communication equipment mounting, and hundreds of other options to support your rescue mission.
Heavy Duty Inside and Out
Standard body trim materials are designed for rugged use and durability during the life of the vehicle. As standard, KME utilizes aluminum tread plate for flooring/walkway walls and fiberglass reinforced board for ceilings and side walls with upgrades available to each. All 12V DC wiring is installed using protective loom while 110/220v AC wiring is entirely encased in liquid tight conduit to prevent chafing and fatigue over the life of the apparatus.
Light and Medium Duty Options
KME light and medium duty rescues offer a full range of options customized to your unique needs. Available in lengths from 10' to 15', these units offer plenty of heavy duty features including the use of rugged substructure tubing and 3/16" aluminum. Special body storage compartmentation can be created for rescue, fire police and other required functions.
