Product Details and Specifications

Utilize 1¾" lines or 1" Flashpoint structural hose
Heavy duty shut-off valve
Hardened stainless steel striking surface

Stainless steel body. Select standard 29 in. length or 5 ft. length for deploying from aerials.

Three Nozzle Tip Options:

Attack Tip

Directional stream pattern to reach the seat of fire or be deflected off of surfaces in attic fire scenarios

Works best for applying water directly when the location of the seat of fire is known.

Indivual streams (16) are projected in a ~10 degree pattern which breaks apart into medium and large droplets to penetrate hot gasses and reach the seat of fire.

Shield Tip

The forward facing jets collide with the radial jets creating a far-reaching forward advancing stream pattern

Works best in attic and basement fires and to reinforce firewalls to limit fire spread

Large droplets coat fuel and stop pyrolysis while small droplets evaporate and absorb energy, lowering temperature.

Mist Tip

Water mist pattern to fill the compartment with small droplets

Works best in cocklofts, void spaces and other enclosed areas

Individual streams collide creating a fine water mist which fills the compartment and absorbs energy

Spray Pattern and Droplet Size Summary

Attack Tip Shield Tip Mist Tip
Flow at 100 PSI 21 GPM - 81 L/min 18 GPM - 68 L/min 23 GPM - 86 L/min
Mean Droplet Size Solid streams / large drops from broken stream 0.337 mm 0.231 mm
Droplet Size Range over 1 mm .012 mm to over 1 mm .010 mm to 1 mm
Droplet Size Summary Most direct pattern. Individual solid streams (16) break into large droplets. Widest range of droplet sizes. Most droplets are between 0.25 mm and .063 mm Smallest droplet size. Most droplets are between 0.15 mm and 0.40 mm

Two Length Options:

AttackSpikeXL - 5 ft.

The AttackSpikeXL is 5 ft. long and is deployed directly from an aerial.  Designed to be mounted to the ladder, it’s quickly deployed without stepping foot on the roof. Place the piercing end on the roof and utilize the striking surface to drive the AttackSpike™ into the attic.

Use the 5 ft. long AttackSpike through a soffit for quick access to attic fires from the ground.

AttackSpike - 29 in.

The standard AttackSpike Nozzle is 29 in. long which includes a 5 in. striking block for driving through difficult materials.  This provides a 24 in. penetrating capability.

Pierce exterior walls by first using a pick-head axe, halligan or the SpikeHammer to make a hole in the siding and sheathing.  The AttackSpike can then be driven through to the interior.  On most modern construction homes the spike can be driven directly through the wall or can be forced through without tools.

Pierce interior walls to cool rooms / compartments prior to entry or reinforce firewalls with a shield or mist spike tip.

Pierce ceilings and clear insulation to access attic fires from below.  Pierce floors to quickly access basement fires.

Tool Construction

Hardened Stainless Steel Tip

AttackSpike tips are machined from hardened stainless steel to withstand years of heavy-duty use.

Hardened Stainless Steel Striking Surface

The striking surface at the rear of the tool is cut from a high strength hardened stainless steel alloy.

Stainless Steel Body

300 Series stainless steel body for strength, durability and corrosion resistance.

Replaceable & Interchangeable Nozzles

Nozzles can be removed for maintenance and can be replaced or changed out with another style tip.

Rapid Deployment Kit

AttackPack™

The AttackPack kit includes a gated wye, two 50 ft. lengths of 1 in. structural hose, a SpikeHammer™ and two AttackSpike nozzles contained in a roll-out bag.

Designed to be stored in a compartment and rapidly deployed on scene for exterior operations or to be carried to the fire floor in high-rise and high occupancy scenarios.

Feed the AttackPack with any 1¾ in. line, whether that's a pre-connected hose load or a line fed from a standpipe.

Made in North America

We are an engineering and product development company founded to use fire science and research to improve firefighting tools and tactics.  Modern fuels, lightweight building construction and more air-tight buildings have changed how fast fires grow, flashover and respond to traditional tactics.  Our mission is to support the evolution of firefighting tactics by developing and manufacturing purpose-built tools.
