    Default Info on Air-Kwik

    I saw that a local department was looking into buying from this company. I have been to their web site a half dozen times, but all I can get is the home page. I sent them two e-mails, with no response.

    Does anyone here know what it up with them?

    Thanks

    From their homepage:

    NOTICE

    Air-Kwik not involved in firefighter's death

    On September 24th a young volunteer firefighter in Ohio was tragically killed when an air pressurized firefighting system exploded. Initial reports indicate that it may have been caused by a tank being over-pressurized that was not intended for firefighting.

    As part of the firefighting family, we want to extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Firefighter Ryan Seitz, and the McArthur Fire Department.

    To our Air-Kwik customers, we want to assure you that your tanks are ASME certified pressure vessels designed for firefighting. The pressure regulator is set to not exceed the 200 psi rating. In addition, there are two pressure relief valves on every Air-Kwik, one on the pressure regulator and one on the tank.

    With our dedication to safety and our customers we will be issuing a new safety bulletin in regard to proper inspection and maintenance procedures.

    Please email any questions or concerns to: bob@air-kwik.com

    Sincerely,

    Robert Roy, President

    Oh Yes, I read this, but I can't see any of their equipment, in fact I can't get off their home page. Could you? I am using a steam powered computer, so that could be the issue.

    Yeah, it did not work for me either.
