Due to their operation ranges we classify the fire fighting vehicles into the following groups: standard fire fighting vehicles specialist fire fighting vehicles - industrial fire fighting vehicles - forest fire vehicles - air-crash tenders - and others more Every field has special requirements which will be more than fulfilled.
Fire fighting vehicle TLF 3000

Since 1934 we are engaged in the field of fire fighting. For you this means: safety and functionality by longtime experience to the advantage of helpers and rescuers worldwide. At everything we did during the past years we tried to be as close as possible with the endusers of our products. Therefore it is no coincidence by philosophy to
Fire fighting vehicle TLF with rescue equipment

have as much fire fighters as possible in our team. To meet the highest requirements we developed among other things the extremely efficient One Seven-system (compressed air foam system) which cannot be compared to conventional compressed air foam-systems. The One Seven-systems are available in various designs and can be used for retrofitting as well as for the direct installation. Please ask for detailed information. It was always our premise to develop new technology and to optimise existing technology. That is why the One Seven-system is for sure one highlight from the development of our engineers.

The new One Seven extinguishing medium Maximum effectiveness with the highest degree of safety!
One Seven is a highly efficient fire extinguishing medium using minimal volumes of water. It can be used to fight every type of fire. With ease of manual application, it increases the safety factor for fire fighters. By using One Seven you can protect your crews, save lives, reduce losses and guard your property. And our system allows you to do all that: - safely - quickly - reliably - easily and - universally

ONE drop of water becomes SEVEN foam bubbles

OS 3100 E

Fire ghting

By adding the unique One Seven foam concentrate and pressurized air to the water, one drop of water volume expands to form seven foam bubbles. The surface area of a water droplet is thereby distributed on the surface of seven foam bubbles. The expanded surface area embodies helpful characteristics. The result of this blending is a micro-cellular, homogenous foam structure with reproducible characteristics:
Large Surface Area High Energy Content Adhesive Properties Strong Wetting Capability strong cooling capability (~10 C / sec.) high velocity and deep penetration cools the fuel, not the flames solution penetrates the fuel

The One Seven foam convinces not only by its extinguishing effects (cooling-, separation-, viscosity- and quench-effect) but also by its special flow behaviour. Therefore One Seven has an extinguishing efficiency rate of 80%.

Protect the environment...

In this extremely difficult sector we work in the areas: HazMat trucks GW-G measuring vehicles decontamination deFcon oil defense Ro/Ro-Containers HazMat trucks Did you know that Gimaex (Wolfgang Schmitz) built and market the first GW-G within Germany at that time? You should be optimally equipped for immediate measurements at e.g. acid- or mineral oil accidents where damages for persons and environment must be worried about. Hardly no one can fall back on this much of experience and practice within this field. The German market leadership proves this right, too. In either case, we have the right solution for you. Wether you decide for a 3,5 t chassis, 15 t chassis or also Ro/Ro-Containers - this is our everyday business. We can offer 3 different types of vehicles: 1. Shutter 2. Shutter with deep drawing 3. Easy opening system

Environment protection

Gimaex Easy Opening System The lateral equipment compartments are closed by one lower and one upper wall, each. When opening the lower wall, the upper wall slides automatically onto the roof.
Ro/Ro-Container HazMat

Measuring vehicles Nuclear, chemical and biological substances require special detection-, fighting- and disposal methods in the case of an accident. Measuring vehicles and decontamination become more and more important whithin this area. Almost anybody does not have the heart to realise the task of manufacturing measuring vehicles. We do. Detecting as well as qualitative and quantitative measuring of contaminated environment at hazmats in the NBC-field is a challenge we have met. International and national references prove the practical suitability of the Gimaex vehicle also in this area. Pressurised cabins and high-quality technology are only some features of those special vehicles.

Decontamination We developed the unique deFcon (foam decontamination) for the decontamination. Our aim is to decontaminate fast and effective and to produce only slightest quantities of contaminated mass. Exclusively in Germany Gimaex deFconsystems are able to decontaminate devices as well as persons with our different deFcon-systems (mobile and fix installations). The deFcon-units fulfill the requirements at operations in connection with epizootics, large contaminations after failures in chemical plants or terroristical attacks with warfare agents. Besides fire brigades and civil defense we also equip the military.

Ro/Ro-Container decon

To decontaminate persons (also injureds) is a very special challenge. Our deFcon-devices in connection with our special foam additives offer the solution in terms of dermatological aspects and considering rapidity. All foam additives are licensed products.

Oil defense The protection of surface waters and therefore drinking water is an important goal which will normally fulfilled by the fire brigade. To provide you with the right devices also in this field, we met this responsible ambition which should not be underrated. In case of oil accidents on rivers or lakes the oil defense will directly be adopted on site. We offer our LSEP and other accessories to absorb oil-water mixtures and separate them on site. Disposal costs and the water pollution will be reduced to a minimum by the Gimaex-oil defense.

Successful rescue...
The worldwide demand for solutions from our company, also in the field of Technical Rescue Trucks, rises annually. Why? Due to our utter wish to find an ideal solution for you our engineers design the bodyworks and loading most functional and utmost economical. Rescue staff that is equipped by Gimaex products is always prepared for any kind of accident. Hence they have the chance to always use the best devices individually, to save time for rescuing lives and goods or to avoid worse, respectively. Another important task is to minimise the exposure of the retrievers and to guarantee a best possible care of the casualities. With Gimaex rescue trucks it is possible to focus on the things which are important.

Technical Rescue Truck (TRT) The Gimaex technical rescue trucks have a fourwheel drive and can be used for the technical rescue. They have a fire fighting loading which also corresponds to the DIN standard. Our strength is to design the vehicles acc. to your wishes and requirements. We are able to offer you individual solutions and economical designs.

Ro/Ro-Container As for the rescue trucks we use special Gimaex alu-profiles for the interior fittings also at Ro/Ro-Containers. We reach a higher capacity at loading for the equipment due to the resulting clarity and the lower weight. Ro/Ro-Containers can be used variable and it is possible to transport several containers to the operation site by just one hook-lift truck. They can be placed at ground level and therefore it is possible to equip mobile trolleys with heavy devices. Ro/RoContainers are easy to remove for taking them to the operation site. Of course all Ro/Ro-Containers can be equipped acc. to your special requirements and acc. to the DIN/EN standard.
