Whether on a snowcat, an immediate response vehicle, a turntable ladder, or a
fire truck: Callies systems are in use wherever a powerful response is required with a short
In addition, Callies offers stand-alone cart-mounted fire-extinguishing systems that may be
fitted with high-pressure hose lines of up to 150 m (492 ft.) in length. Areas of
application include fire safety services, fire watches, scene areas, and industrial
applications. Especially in fire prevention, these units may be employed during fire
watches, for example at welding sites.
The cart system with a capacity of up to 400 liters (105 gallons) of extinguishing water and
150 meters (492 ft.) of hose material is, for instance, used on the 18-ton special
firefighting vehicle of Daimler AG at their Mettingen plant, by the factory fire department
of Robert Bosch GmbH in Schwieberdingen, by Bombardier Transportation GmbH in Mannheim, and
by the factory fire department of Evobus GmbH. The main advantage here is rapid deployment
with maximum mobility.
A a special feature, Callies cart systems may also be equipped for stationary
automatic operation. This permits the operation of fixed nozzle systems, for example, in
experiment setups, test labs, with particularly high-risk machinery or components,
The cart placed outside the hazard area is connected via a pipe line to the pre-installed
high-pressure nozzle system. It may be triggered either manually or via the standard
extinguishing interface (VdS 2540) by a central fire alarm system. With their unlimited
duration of the fire-extinguishing operation and their high degree of reliability and
flexibility, these systems, with their comprehensive surveillance features, provide an
interesting alternative to bottle systems.
