Braun Signature Series from Braun Industries

Article Dec 27, 2012

When I first walked up to the Braun Industries booth to check out their new Signature Series ambulance, I literally stopped in my tracks when I saw the breathtaking rig gleaming in front of me. The white paint job was flawless, and the chrome handles just iced the cake. It’s rare that I would use the word “beautiful” to describe an ambulance, but that’s the word that fits.

The Signature Series from Braun Industries is the company’s newest model and truly represents the pinnacle of ambulance design and function. Drawing upon 40 years of experience building ambulances, this family-owned company has delivered a rig like no other.

This ambulance is not just eye candy. The vehicle comes to life using Braun’s exclusive SolidBody® construction, that blends safety and toughness, giving you a strong, yet lightweight ambulance with a lifetime transferrable structural warranty. There’s no glue, adhesives or wood to be found in the Signature Series. The one-piece roof is 100% welded in place for added strength and safety. The formed, recessed countertops provide lots of working space, but are also easy to clean and decon. The EZ Glide sliding door provides great access to the patient compartment. You get all-LED lighting and enough outside storage space to bring all of your tools of the trade to the emergency scene. The all-aluminum interior is as rugged as it gets, and the customized front wall ALS cabinet is designed to provide locking drug storage, coupled with ease of access and maximized storage space.

I could go on and on, but let me just bring it home with this: The Signature Series from Braun Industries features the top 25 features most requested by their customers all in one production-line ambulance, making it feature rich, but at an affordable price. If your service is in the market for a new rig or two, you need look no further than the Signature Series from Braun Industries. It is the standard by which other rigs should be measured.
