Equipment by Intelagard


Intelagard has been building proprietary, multipurpose Compressed Air Foam Systems (CAFS) for more than 20 years. The patented mixing technology incorporated into these systems – which range in size from a small, 2 gallon wheeled backpack to a 500 gallon skid unit – creates a foam with a unique bubble structure that can adhere to vertical surfaces such as glass and metal. Successfully tested and used by the US Military for over a decade, Intelagard CAFS have been proven to be effective and efficient in a wide array of demanding environments and situations. In fact, the Intelagard Macaw® Backpack is the CAF backpack of choice for the US Military and numerous government agencies.

Use a single system for fire suppression one day, decontamination the next, and clean a hazmat spill up the next week. One System for Multifunction, Multihazard Response. That’s the Intelagard CAFS.
