Water storage unit ideal for remote areas
By Fire Fighting in Canada
Feb. 6, 2011 – The Hexagon Water Dam is a Waterwall water storage unit from Cintec, developed to meet the needs of the firefighters who fight remote fires. The innovative inflatable Waterwall dam is designed to provide additional rapid water storage for firefighting appliances where main water supply is unavailable.
The Waterwall dam allows a tanker to empty water into the unit and leave location to refill. Meanwhile, the fire appliance can instead draw water from the Hexagon storage unit, enabling a more timely and efficient fire response.
The dam can be quickly inflated using readily available air pumps or compressed air supply. As soon as the dam is inflated, the device is ready to receive water. The unit is designed to withstand uneven ground and gentle slopes, making it an especially viable option for remote and rural fire response locations.
The light-weight, compact unit measures can be adjusted in size and capacity and can hold 2,745 U.S. gallons.
