Are you searching for a service body for an emergency vehicle? Are you aware of the important features needed in a service body for an emergency vehicle? In today’s blog post, we will discuss the essential features that should be part of any emergency vehicle service body.
One of the most important things that matter when choosing a service body for an emergency vehicle is flexibility. It should be flexible enough to allow you to convert your vehicle into an emergency vehicle such as a hazard vehicle or an ambulance for example.
That’s why a removable service body is a good option. This allows you to easily offload the equipment and contents from one vehicle to another in just a few minutes.
Following is a list of some of the other important factors that should be taken into consideration when choosing a service body for emergency services.
The first step in your research should be to prepare a list of the equipment that is going to be carried in the vehicle including the estimated quantities of different tools as well as the weight of those tools.
The list should include everything including all the parts, tools or equipment that are going to be placed in the vehicle. This will help in choosing the configuration that works best for your particular situation.
In some cases, you might need to carry certain equipment outside the service body such as a compressor or a ladder. This will require a specific design to make sure that the vehicle is capable of supporting the equipment you need to carry.
For instance, if you need to mount a ladder, the service body needs to be heavy duty to be able to support the extra weight. Similarly, if any kind of equipment is mounted at the top of the body, it will also affect the accessibility to various equipment from the top.
The selection of your chassis depends on the maximum load that is likely to be carried by the vehicle. Here at MFI Service Bodies, we specialise in designing and manufacturing service bodies to support emergency services.
Our experts will help you choose the right chassis based on the maximum load the vehicle is required to carry. Our experts will also help you choose the right body material. In most cases, service bodies are made of steel but in some cases, lighter material such as fibreglass or aluminium might be used for better fuel economy and various other advantages.
One of the biggest advantages of investing in a service body is that it allows you to keep the equipment organised and easily accessible. However, access becomes much more critical in the case of an emergency vehicle.
This is why we offer a variety of configurations to help you choose the best one for your particular requirements. Our team will come up with the most appropriate solution to ensure proper organisation as well as ease of access.
In addition to the above-mentioned factors, you should also consider the kind of electrical accessories needed for your emergency vehicle. Some of the most common accessories for emergency vehicles include lights, emergency lighting, reversing cameras, light locks and battery systems and sirens among others.
To conclude, the requirements of a service body for emergency services are completely different from a service body required by an electrician or plumber. This is why you need to partner with an experienced service body design team such as MFI Service Bodies to help you choose the right configuration for your emergency vehicle.
