Hendrickson truck commercial vehicle systems announces the introduction of Roadmaax, a heavy duty rear air suspension product, for fire and rescue vehicles in North America at FDIC in Indianapolis. Roadmaax will serve as the new rear air suspension for Rosenbauer’s new SA Viper aerial truck.

Roadmaax is designed specifically for heavy duty fire and rescue markets with ride quality and equipment protection being its cornerstone features. “Roadmaax is the future of high-capacity performance suspensions for the fire protection industry. This system was designed with a low maintenance, unique suspension geometry providing maximum control, predictable handling, and premium ride quality,” says Chris Batsch, Director of the Specialty Vehicle Business Unit for Hendrickson.

The Roadmaax system has been through test and validation procedures based on real world road conditions and has received positive feedback on its performance and capabilities. “We are excited to offer another innovation to the fire industry and provide first responders with the products and reliability that they need to do their job,” says Dave Scharphorn, Director of Sales for Rosenbauer Motors. Rosenbauer America will be showcasing the Roadmaax suspension in their booth 5200 at FDIC. 

Roadmaax delivers enhanced handling even in challenging environments where vehicles encounter sharp turns and unexpected ground and environmental conditions. The integration of Hendrickson’s proven main support member spring technology, with its wide stance air springs, provides a balance of predictable handling and ride quality even over a variety of terrain.

Available initially in capacities of 35,000 lbs per axle at Rosenbauer in North America, Roadmaax is approved for fire and rescue applications. For additional information on Roadmaax, please contact Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems at 630-910-2800 or hendrickson-fire.com.
