Robust & Built to Last
Our Fire Buckets are manufactured from corrosion-resistant materials designed to withstand high levels of abrasion. This means each bucket can be filled from the various water sources used to fight fires. It can be dip-filled from fresh water, salt water, and even chlorinated swimming pools.
Bucket Sizes from 200L to 10,000L
Our Helicopter Fire Bucket can be manufactured to any volume with many being in the 200L-10,000L range. Also, the carry bag, dam and groundsheet are available in a range of colours.
Tough & Durable Fire Buckets
Our Fire Bucket is made of tough and durable urethane, an industry recognised super material that’s tough and flexible. It’s strong, load bearing, and impact resistant, while also able to withstand high operating temperatures. The same material we use to manufacture the our Fire Bucket is used by the US Navy and Coastguard because it is non-marking, has good UV stabilisation and strongly resists the growth of algae and fungus.
Self-Contained Foam Injection
The Cloudburst Fire Bucket incorporates a self-contained foam injection system activated by a simple push button. A pump delivers a foaming agent for a timed period, with time determined by the pilot or crew.
Water Capacity & Timing Control
Control over the water capacity and timing of the release is important and very necessary when fighting fires from the air. The pilot may need to carry less water due to fuel load or weather conditions. It’s also important the release is fast for safety and efficiency.
Multi-Drop Efficient Use of Airtime
The Cloudburst Fire Bucket ‘Monsoon Series’ gives the aerial fire fighter a more efficient use of their airtime by using ‘multi-drop’. This means the pilot or crew have total and precise control of their payload – whether the fire is isolated or scattered.
