Composite Body

Corrosion and rust resistance make this the ideal platform for a fire apparatus that will be used in all environments and conditions. Whether from precipitation, water at a fire scene, chemicals used to winterize road or salt water, our composite body system is up to the task.

The composite body system has been used by Federal agencies and municipal departments in excess of three (3) decades. When you combine this system with BFX Fire Apparatus’ pump package, electrical package, and chassis modifications, you are equipping your fleet with the best equipment available. With a very comprehensive list of standard features, BFX Fire Apparatus offers a wide range of customization to fit the needs of your fleet!
