Since our first squad truck in 1937, Swab rescue bodies have been renowned for their quality of construction, innovative designs, complete customization, and longevity of service life.
All Swab rescue bodies feature tubular aluminum or stainless steel frame construction. This tubular body skeleton sets Swab bodies apart from the competition. Bodies are welded into a free-standing structure in which individual, free-standing compartment boxes are then installed. Compartment boxes do not share a common wall with another compartment box, front, or rear body panels. As all outside body paneling is affixed to the skeletal structure of the body, accident repairs are much easier to perform on Swab rescue bodies than on bodies where compartment boxes and outside walls make up the structure of the body itself. Additionally, a 2” air space around all compartment boxes allows for proper ventilation, and provides space to conceal wiring and hoses behind and between the compartment boxes. No wiring is ever seen running down the back or across the ceiling of a Swab rescue compartment. The best part? All Swab rescue bodies are easily transferable to new chassis.
Built to bring the whole squad no matter the chassis, the Commander Series offers fully custom body and interior layouts to fit your needs. The body features a welded tubular aluminum frame construction, standard ROM roll-up doors, full-radius wheelhousing liners and non-extruded door and door frame construction for seamless appearance and resistance to corrosion. The interior of the body is fully lined and insulated, boasts a 125″ treadplate floor and riser, and offers an array of cabinetry, command desk, seating, lighting, and power combinations, including an under-seat squad bench compartment for extra storage. All compartment boxes are free-standing welded .125″ treadplate and do not share a common wall with any other compartment. Slam-shut, body side flush hinged compartment doors, and stainless steel construction are other available options to further customize your Commander Series body.
