Compact Line

Compact. Flexible. Powerful.

The Rosenbauer CL series includes small fire trucks of up to 13 tons. The body concept of the Compact Line provides a lot of space for crew and equipment thanks to its dimensions and low weight – without having to sacrifice safety and performance. You have maximum flexibility in the design of your driver’s cab.

Compact and powerful

With the CL series, Rosenbauer has developed a compact, innovative and powerful municipal vehicle. Thanks to the light and space-saving sandwich construction it is possible to produce superstructures from thinner load-carrying shells, without interior profiles or transverse panels. An additional load-carrying subframe is not required either. This results in low overall height and a compact body width. For the crew this means: comfortable entry height and convenient removal without access flaps. This is also a clear advantage in underpasses, low fire stations, entrance doors and in narrow alleys. The minimum body weight is an additional highlight of this body concept and allows for maximum equipment.

Many different versions. Flexible solutions.

The Compact Line series is available as panel van or with a lightweight body. Rosenbauer builds small vehicles of up to a max. of 5.3 tonnes, primarily on the MB Sprinter chassis. The compact and maneuverable panel vans can be individually equipped and allow for maximum usage of space. Vehicles with lightweight bodies are possible on standard vehicle types with various chassis.

Inform. Operate. Control.

Vehicles with CL lightweight body are fitted with an operating display or a switch console in the driver’s cabin. Both operating options quickly and comprehensively provide the driver with an overview of the status of the entire vehicle. They inform about tank contents, open equipment compartments and much more. All signal units, lighting systems and extinguishing systems can also be controlled from this unit. It is also possible to connect a rear-view camera and thermal imaging camera.

Superior performance during firefighting

At the heart of every firefighting truck is the firefighting equipment. Especially for small vehicles, Rosenbauer has developed a large selection of extremely powerful firefighting systems, which can be optimally integrated into the light and space-saving superstructures of the CL series.

Competence from a single source

All firefighting-related components are developed, manufactured and optimally integrated into the vehicle body by Rosenbauer. To guarantee an extinguishing system that always functions flawlessly.

Operations in a new light

A majority of fire fighting calls take place in twilight or at night. The Compact Line is fitted with a special lighting concept that produces lighting conditions at a quality never before achieved. It increases the safety and efficiency during the operation. The innovative lighting concept is based on LED technology and brings light where it’s needed. Conditions similar to daylight are created in combination with surrounding- and equipment compartment lighting, as well as light mast.
