You use an aerial in risky situations. You need a ladder or platform that you can be absolutely sure of. It needs to perform safely. Repeatedly. Run after run. Year after year. Even in the worst conditions.
Both safety and performance start with engineering. The industry’s finest product development team is always working so you can do your job safer and more effectively – whether that means rescuing someone from an 8th story window, putting a ventilation team on a roof, or setting up a master stream for a defensive operation.
We build every Pierce aerial at our own facilities where we can keep an unforgiving eye on quality. Our own professional engineers conduct exhaustive tests, including finite element analysis and modal analysis to make certain our aerials meet or exceed all NFPA 1901 standards. And after we test it with our own engineering, every Pierce aerial is also third-party tested and certified to the stringent Type I requirements by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
