Model (scale 1:24). Designed and manufactured by Simon Engineering Ltd, this platform comprises a cage and three articulated booms mounted on a turntable. The cage is capable of accommodating up to six adults, and its movements can be controlled either from inside the cage or from the ground. Water is supplied to the cage both for firefighting purposes and for operating a water-curtain nozzle positioned at the front of the cage, which offers fire protection to the operator and makes it suited to rescue work.
