How Trucks are Built





Strong as a Tank!

We build  TOUGH  trucks for  TOUGH  situations

It's an all out war. You against man's oldest enemy - uncontrolled fire. In your arsenal of weapons you're going to need the toughest and most rugged fire-fighting vehicle available... Ferrara. Our extruded, all-aluminum fire body, the heaviest, strongest, and most durable in industry is considered by many to be built like a tank. Unlike conventional fire apparatus builders, Ferrara continues to Lead the Way with unprecedented engineering, design, and performance. Our body sides, compartment floors, walls, ceilings, and doors are constructed from 3/16" thick, corrosion resistant 5052-H32 Marine Grade Aluminum. In an independent comparison study, Ferrara's aluminum plate proved to be stronger in overall Tensile/Load Limit, Endurance Limit and RBM (Resisting Bending Moment). All body extrusions are certified 6061T6 structural aluminum.  Ferrara's massive 1/4" thick body corner extrusions coupled
with our twin-I beam subframe and heavy duty body gussets add up to a fire body of unmatched strength. This innovative design offers an unprecedented blend of durability and function.

Would you want your "TANK" to be anything less?
