Franklin Fire District 1
Fire & Safety Services is pleased to submit a proposal to Pierce Manufacturing for a Pierce® Heavy
Duty Rescue per your request for quotation. The following paragraphs will describe in detail the
apparatus, construction methods, and equipment proposed. This proposal will indicate size, type, model
and make of components parts and equipment, providing proof of compliance with each and every item
(except where noted) in the departments advertised specifications.
PIERCE MANUFACTURING was founded in 1913. Since then we have been building bodies with one
philosophy, "BUILD THE FINEST". Our skilled craftsmen take pride in their work, which is reflected,
in the final product. We have been building fire apparatus since the early "forties" giving Pierce
Manufacturing over 60 years of experience in the fire apparatus market. Pierce Manufacturing has built
and put into service more than 51,000 apparatus, including more than 27,000 on Pierce custom chassis
designed and built specifically for fire and emergency applications. Our Appleton, Wisconsin facility
has over 757,000 total square feet of floor space situated on approximately 97 acres of land. Our
Bradenton, Florida facility has 300,000 square feet of floor space situated on approximately 38 acres of
land.
Our beliefs in high ethical standards are carried through in all of our commitments and to everyone with
whom we do business. Honesty, Integrity, Accountability and Citizenship are global tenets by which we
all live and work. Consequently, we neither engage in, nor have we ever been convicted of price fixing,
bid rigging, or collusion in any domestic or international fire apparatus market.
Pierce has only one brand of fire apparatus "Pierce", ensuring you are receiving top of the line product
that meets your specification.
In accordance with the current edition of NFPA 1901 standards, this proposal will specify whether the
fire department, manufacturer, or apparatus dealership will provide required loose equipment.
Images and illustrative material in this proposal are as accurate as known at the time of publication, but
are subject to change without notice. Images and illustrative material is for reference only, and may
include optional equipment and accessories and may not include all standard equipment.
GENERAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
To control quality, ensure compatibility, and provide a single source for service and warranty, the

PAINT - BODY PAINTED TO MATCH CAB
The exterior custom cab and body painting procedure will consist of a seven (7) step finishing process as
follows:
1. Manual Surface Preparation - All exposed metal surfaces on the custom cab and body will be
thoroughly cleaned and prepared for painting. Imperfections on the exterior surfaces will be
removed and sanded to a smooth finish. Exterior seams will be sealed before painting. Exterior
surfaces that will not be painted include; chrome plating, polished stainless steel, anodized
aluminum and bright aluminum treadplate.
2. Chemical Cleaning and Pretreatment - All surfaces will be chemically cleaned to remove dirt,
oil, grease, and metal oxides to ensure the subsequent coatings bond well. The aluminum
surfaces will be properly cleaned and treated using a high pressure, high temperature 4 step Acid
Etch process. The steel and stainless surfaces will be properly cleaned and treated using a high
temperature 3 step process specifically designed for steel or stainless. The chemical treatment
converts the metal surface to a passive condition to help prevent corrosion. A final pure water
rinse will be applied to all metal surfaces.
3. Surfacer Primer - The Surfacer Primer will be applied to a chemically treated metal surface to
provide a strong corrosion protective basecoat. A minimum thickness of 2 mils of Surfacer
Primer is applied to surfaces that require a Critical aesthetic finish. The Surfacer Primer is a
two-component high solids urethane that has excellent sanding properties and an extra smooth
finish when sanded.
4. Finish Sanding - The Surfacer Primer will be sanded with a fine grit abrasive to achieve an ultrasmooth finish. This sanding process is critical to produce the smooth mirror like finish in the
topcoat.
5. Sealer Primer - The Sealer Primer is applied prior to the Basecoat in all areas that have not been
previously primed with the Surfacer Primer. The Sealer Primer is a two-component high solids
urethane that goes on smooth and provides excellent gloss hold out when topcoated.
6. Basecoat Paint - Two coats of a high performance, two component high solids polyurethane
basecoat will be applied. The Basecoat will be applied to a thickness that will achieve the proper
color match. The Basecoat will be used in conjunction with a urethane clear coat to provide
protection from the environment.
Elizebeth Avenue
91 of 99
Haz-Mat 26
Franklin Fire District 1
7. Clear Coat - Two (2) coats of Clear Coat will be applied over the Basecoat color. The Clear
Coat is a two-component high solids urethane that provides superior gloss and durability to the
exterior surfaces. Lap style and roll-up doors will be Clear Coated to match the body. Paint
warranty for the roll-up doors will be provided by the roll-up door manufacture.
Specifications are written to define cyclic corrosion testing, physical strengths, durability and minimum
appearance requirements must be met in order for an exterior paint finish to be considered acceptable as
a Pierce quality finish.
Each batch of basecoat color is checked for a proper match before painting of the cab and the body.
After the cab and body are painted, the color is verified again to make sure that it matches the color
standard. Electronic color measuring equipment is used to compare the color sample to the color
standard entered into the computer. Color specifications are used to determine the color match. A Delta
E reading is used to determine a good color match within each family color.
All removable items such as brackets, compartment doors, door hinges, and trim will be removed and
separately if required, to ensure paint behind all mounted items. Body assemblies that cannot be finish
painted after assembly will be finish painted before assembly.
The cab and body will be two-tone, with the upper section painted black along with a shield design on
the cab face and lower section of the cab and body painted red. The special shield will be located as
directed than the standard shield.
