Flameproof Forklift Rentals started operating in 1998 when they took ownership of an existing rental contract with an acetylene gas manufacturing company. The ownership included the full maintenance of the Zone 1 trucks that operated 24/7 in very harsh conditions. The trucks would be serviced monthly as the operation never stopped and the ex-trucks had to be available at all times.

So there was minimum disruption the trucks were generally serviced on Saturdays and our technician was on call 24/7 for stoppages and breakdowns. Over the years flameproof rentals purchased more trucks, always trucks from FMR contracts as this guaranteed they were serviced and maintained correctly. If a client wanted a specific truck and mast Flameproof Rentals would find a suitable standard truck, convert it to flameproof and rent the truck to our clients.Trucks are rented out country wide and we also have a service operation in Durban.
