Ascend to a whole new level.
Go where no aerial apparatus has gone before. And do so with the heavy-duty capabilities
and dependability you deserve.
The Ascendant® 107′ heavy-duty steel ladder truly redefined the single rear axle aerial market,
providing firefighters with an unprecedented 107′ of vertical and 100′ of horizontal reach without
compromising on water capacity, performance, or safety. The heavy-duty 100,000 psi high-strength
steel ladder was purpose built using proven engineering practices. Since the launch, firefighters
have made it clear that we need to be able to offer our innovative Ascendant ladder on other
configurations as well.
The Ascendant technology has expanded into 5 innovative products. The Ascendant Class of Aerials
was brilliantly engineered to equip firefighters with more aerial choices than ever before. Whether
it be weight restrictions, compartment space, preference to ride rather than climb, the lower cost
of ownership, or rescue capabilities, the Ascendant technology provides flexibility and a wide
range of options to meet each department’s needs.
