Fire Sprinkler Systems: Protecting Structures from Firebrands
The number of homes destroyed by wildfires has increased dramatically in recent decades. This is partly due to the large number of new constructions in wildland and urban interface areas, but it is also due to decades of aggressive fire control. Potentially inflammable material has accumulated in many areas, increasing the risk for massively destructive fires. Although firefighters fight valiantly, some wildfires become so large that they are nearly unstoppable.
The WATERAX HPO-2X is a rugged collapsible backpack made of durable nylon fibrecoated with neoprene. The neoprene bag is UV resistant and fireproof. It also offers exceptional abrasion resistance and can easily be repaired in the field with standard tire patches. The all-new brass hand pump design features a forward grooved hand grip and a rear pistol grip that makes operating the hand pump easier on the wrist and requires less effort than standard hand pumps.
At WATERAX, we have your back, and are committed to offering a full range of firefighting solutions, for any need. The extraordinarily light WATERAX MINI-STRIKER® series of portable pumps provide maximal portability and maneuverability by packing WATERAX’s renowned standard of quality into an extremely light package that still packs a punch.
Natural disturbances to forests by wildfire, such as those burning in the Northwest Territories, can adversely affect water supply, water quality, and stream health for years, or even decades, after it occurs. These effects can also be felt much farther downstream at larger basin scales, increasing the likelihood that drinking water treatment processes will be impacted.
When fires occur in remote locations such as wildland forests and mountainous regions, you need a lightweight, robust and compact portable pump, which will allow you to relocate quickly while minimizing fatigue. The MARK-3®, with its unmatched power-to-weight ratio and two-stroke engine, is your ideal solution.
Extreme weather conditions. Difficult terrain. Low visibility. Fighting fires can be an extremely unpredictable and dangerous task. One thing is certain in this profession. The stakes are high, and the price of mistakes -- in lives and property -- can be enormous. You cannot afford the cost of faulty equipment. You want to send your crews out with the best chance at winning the battle against wildland fires, and that means arming them with the highest quality tools.
