Accuride Corporation Accu-Armor™ aluminum wheelsAccuride Corporation Accu-Armor™ aluminum wheels undergo a proprietary, multistep, post-production treatment process that texturizes, anodizes, and seals the surface without changing or compromising the wheels’ original form, fit, or function. As a result, Accu-Armor aluminum wheels are highly resistant to scratching and scuffing, filiform corrosion, high- and low-pH chemicals commonly used in truck washes, and common chemicals used in deicing road surfaces. Accu-Armor aluminum wheels are also proven to be durable under extended exposure to heat and UV light and will not chalk or fade. They are easy to clean and require very little maintenance while featuring an attractive, distinctive appearance.

Wildfire Automated Suppression and Protection System (WASP) is an automated wildfire protection system designed by a firefighter with more than 16 years of experience fighting wildfires in both British Columbia and Alberta. Mounted on a trailer, the completely self-contained unit provides a 25,000-watt diesel generator, powerful pumps, and more than 3,000 feet of line with 30 sprinkler heads. Enough to surround a major stadium like Toronto’s Sky Dome with an 80-foot barrier of water, the WASP can be towed to a location by most full-size pickup trucks and be easily deployed by two operators within 45 minutes. When firefighters are pulled out of an area for safety reasons, the WASP can be left behind, where it can pump water continuously for up to five days without supervision. The WASP can also be used to provide emergency lighting and power and can move extremely large quantities of water great distances in flood situations.
