DLA-K 23/12


Turntable ladder (DLA (K) 23/12

With the new DLA (K) 23/12, an aerial rescue vehicle with completely newly developed ladder technology was procured, which represents a milestone in the development of rotary ladders.

The turntable ladder is primarily used as a rescue device to provide a second escape route in buildings up to the high-rise limit (22 m). Higher buildings are considered high-rise buildings and must be equipped with a second structural escape route according to the applicable building regulations. The building regulations therefore explain the standard designation DLA (K) 23/12, which describes the nominal rescue height of 23 m with a lateral projection of 12 m (distance to the building).

In addition to being used as a rescue device, the turntable ladder can also be used very sensibly as an attack route in firefighting and as a tool for technical assistance. In order to be used sensibly in all fields of application, the DLA (K) has extensive accessories and an articulated arm that can be bent by 75 degrees  in the uppermost part of the ladder.
