CHASSIS REPAIR, REFURB and UPGRADES

Got rust? Turn to SVI Refurb’s corrosion removal services, which includes chassis sandblasting, followed by a two-part epoxy coating to protect the refurbed chassis from the elements. As part for our cab and chassis refurb services, we also can replace suspension components, like airbags, brakes, drivetrains, springs and steering. SVI Refurb also offers a number of chassis upgrades, including PTO or generator integration, front bumper extension, bedliner bumper coating and the addition of InstaChains, hitches, receivers and hydraulic reels.

FIRE TRUCK CHASSIS REMOUNTS
AND ENGINE REBUILDS

At SVI Refurb, we can perform in-frame engine rebuilds or re-chassis your apparatus, whether you’re looking to remount a refurbed chassis with a new body or a new chassis with a refurbished body.

BODY REPAIR, REFURB AND UPGRADES

SVI Refurb can troubleshoot electrical issues and tackle the toughest body collision repairs, offering complete door repair, panel replacement and body fabrication, while topping off our list of body refurbishment services with paint, graphics and Aluminum Tread Brite polishing. We can make the body even more functional, offering pump repairs (or replacement) as well as a long list of body upgrades, like compressors, Cascade fill stations, piston-assisted hosebed covers and custom tool mounting configurations.


FIRE PUMP REPAIR AND UPGRADES

In addition to pump repairs, SVI Refurb offers a number of pump upgrades. Manual valves can be upgraded to electric-actuated valves to conserve space and simplify operation, followed by panel label updates. We also can upgrade incandescent panel lights to LED for brightness and energy efficiency, and we are the only refurb company in the region to convert high-pressure hoses from 1 inch to large-diameter 4 inches for the ultimate in LDH manifold upgrade to increase water volume over greater distances.

Breathe new life into your cab’s interior. Not only can SVI reupholster seat cushions, we can replace seatbelts to meet NFPA 14.3.13 standards, or update seating entirely. We also can bring floor up to NFPA standards, replacing vinyl floormats with NFPA-approved treadplate flooring. Upgrade your cab lights, intercom systems, electrical switches and door hardware with SVI's help or add an Opticom transmitter to communicate temporary right-of-way at intersections. Finally, re-organize your cab with custom consoles, cabinetry, lockboxes and refrigerators.

KEY NFPA STANDARDS FOR INTERIOR REFURBISHMENT


Below, we’ve highlighted a handful of NFPA refurbishing standards that you may want to take into consideration as you plan your fire apparatus refurbishment, most notably new seat belt standards that were added to reduce fire apparatus fatalities caused when crews failed to wear their seat belts. These standards help identify when seat belts are not being properly used. Additionally, standards were created to ensure gear, like helmets, are properly stored in the cab to prevent injury.

SEAT BELT STANDARDS

  • 14.1.3.3 SEAT BELT COLOR

    The seat belt webbing shall be bright red or bright orange in color …

  • 14.1.3.9.1 SEAT BELT WARNING SYSTEM

    The warning system shall consist of an audible warning device that can be heard at all seating positions designed to be occupied while the vehicle is in motion …

  • 14.1.3 SEAT BELT LENGTH

    Each crew riding position shall be provided with a seat and an approved seat belt designed to accommodate a person with and without heavy clothing. (This standard further details the exact seat belt lengths, accounting for the average size of today’s fully dressed firefighter.)

HELMET CONTAINMENT

  • 14.1.7.4 IN-CAB FIRE HELMET USE

    Fire helmets shall not be worn by persons riding in enclosed driving and crew areas. Fire helmets are not designed for crash protection and they will interfere with the protection provided by head rests …

  • 14.1.10.2 HELMET CONTAINMENT

    If helmets are to be stored in the driving or crew compartment, the helmets shall be secured in compliance with 14.1.10.2: All equipment not required to be used during an emergency response, with the exception of SCBA units, shall not be mounted in a driving or crew area unless it is contained in a fully enclosed and latched compartment capable of containing the contents when a 9 g force is applied in the longitudinal axis of the vehicle or a 3 g force is applied in any other direction, or the equipment is mounted in a bracket(s) that can contain the equipment.
