The UAE-made Al Shallal firefighting truck was built using a commercial truck chassis to strict US-led design and specification guidelines. The Al Shallal is a heavy-duty industrial fire truck built to serve clients in the regional and global oil and gas, power and industrial sectors as well as municipal civil defence units.

Designed to combat flammable liquid and gas fires, the Al Shallal truck can spray up to 40,000 litres of water and foam per minute through its three roof-monitors. The Al Shallal truck also carries dry chemical powder that can be applied to a blaze using its patented hydro-chem technology.

Also presented at this year’s Intersec is Bristol’s Containerised Firefighting Pump Set, a precision-made unit created for environments and locations where access to proper firefighting equipment and sufficiently pressurised water is an issue.

The company also showcased the HFC227 Easy Flow and Power Flow Fire Suppression System at Intersec.

The system, which utilises a flow of super-pressurised nitrogen to spread an anti-fire agent over a designated area, comes with a considerably low environmental impact due to its zero-ozone depleting potential and short atmospheric lifetime.

Mahmoud Awad, Managing Director of Bristol, said, “These three products represent the highest standards of firefighting technologies that have been designed to offer efficient and reliable solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing industries and civil defence departments across the Gulf.”
