Body Construction

EXTRUDED ALUMINUM BODY

With each fire department’s diverse requirements, E-ONE’s modular body design and fabrication process allow flexible compartmentation to meet specific needs with one of the industry’s most durable frames. Should an accident occur, our unique all-aluminum, high-strength extrusions minimize the amount of accident damage to the cab. The modular body design offers the ability to repair the body in sections. E-ONE’s all-aluminum, extruded body is lightweight an corrosion- resistant, providing years of trouble-free service. The all-welded, tongue and groove design is superior to a bolted body that can vibrate loose. E-ONE bodies are also backed by a standard 10-year structural warranty.

 

• Uses 4 sided seamless extrusions interlocked and welded to 3/16” aluminum plating.

• Drip rails are bonded to the body to reduce corrosion and direct water run-off away from the compartment.

• Compartment interiors are finished in natural, swirled or Zolatone® with vented louvers. Wiring harnesses installed along extrusions provide easy access and protection from the elements.

• Interlocking aluminum extrusions with aluminum plates through out our bodies result in a strong, yet lightweight vehicle.

• All-welded construction. Structural roll-cage body design assists with protecting the chassis in the event of a roll-over.

STAINLESS STEEL BODY

E-ONE’s stainless steel apparatus body is made entirely of stainless steel, including hinged doors and the sub-frame, making E-ONE stainless steel units one of the most durable on the market. Unitized break-form construction provides a lighter, stronger stainless steel body with double and triple bends. Unitized 12-gauge stainless steel offers improved weight distribution, increased equipment storage and water capacities - up to 1000 gallons of water on a 24,000 lb rear axle. E-ONE’s stainless steel product offers a unique, patented Fiberglass Reinforced Panel (FRP) paint process, which offers a 10-year, non-prorated paint warranty and allows for a quick repair in the event the apparatus is damaged. The process consists of fiberglass reinforced panels that are cut to size, painted and overlaid onto the truck body, allowing for an automotive paint finish and enabling quick, low cost repairs. The process has been proven over a 15-year period.

• Body mounts include a double flex system, which allows up and down movement, creating a smoother ride and reducing stress on the main body structure.

• Unitized formed body design maintains high strength with overall vehicle weight reduction.

• Bright stainless compartment interiors for a maintenance free uniform finish.

• For strength, 7 GA (3/16”) stainless steel tube body support structure.

• 100% stainless steel body structure and steel sub-frame providing superior corrosion resistance.

• Type 304L Marine Grade Stainless Steel contains the high chromium content necessary to form a passive film of chromium oxide which prevents surface corrosion and blocks corrosion from forming in the metals internal structure.

• Fiberglass Reinforced Panel (FRP) paint process consists of fiberglass reinforced panels that are cut to size, painted and overlaid onto the truck body, allowing for an automotive paint finish and enabling quick, low cost repairs. The process has been proven over a 15-year period. FRP is available with roll up door configurations.
