HME Ahrens-Fox Introduces Hot-Dipped Galvanized Chassis

WYOMING, MI–HME Ahrens-Fox, a custom fire apparatus manufacturer, has announced a product enhancement for the fire service with the introduction of their hot-dipped galvanized frame rails, cross members, rear support structure, tank cradles, and other chassis components.

Standard paint and metal coating processes only slow the damage caused by today’s sodium and calcium chloride salt sprays. That’s why HME now offers its line of custom fire apparatus chassis with a hot-dipped galvanized option at a price comparable to that of frame coatings. Nothing compares to the corrosion protection of hot-dipped galvanization.

“For those fire departments looking for the ultimate in corrosion protection, HME has added the option of hot dipped galvanized frames and chassis components to our product offerings” says Ken Lenz, president of HME, Inc. “The hot dipped galvanized coating protects your investment and apparatus budget for decades to come by preventing the corrosion that can crack frames and put your fire apparatus out of service.”

Learn more about the HME HDG™ chassis at this year’s FDIC where two of their new apparatus will be introduced to the fire service utilizing the all new HDGTM chassis. View these products and more at booth #9840 in the Lucas Oil Stadium.
