Protect what is important

Protect what is Important

Every employer must protect their people and premises to ensure uninterrupted production.

Safety first – fire prevention plays an important role in each production facility.

The goal of fire prevention is to help protect persons and property against the dangers and effects of fire. Furthermore, it is necessary to minimize material damage that is caused by production interruptions or loss of customers.

However, the risk of fire sometimes happens unconciously.

In order to optimize profit, production facilities become more and more efficient, and production losses are inacceptable. But fire and explosions are a risk factor in many processes.

What are the causes of the fires in Industrial and manufacturing properties?

Damage is caused in downstream plant areas and not in the place of origin of the sparks (e.g. dryer, burner, sander etc.). Therefore a spark extinguishing system is the safest solution.

How can you protect your plant?

Fire prevention is to be looked at in its entirety.
Effective fire prevention consists of several measures that support


Structural fire prevention helps to prevent fires and to isolate them. A burning fire is prevented from spreading.


By technical fire prevention, one understands facilities that, in case of fire, automatically contribute to avoid personal injuries or property damage.


Organizational fire prevention includes personnel and organizational measures that contribute to help prevent a fire from arising or spreading.
