Protect what is important

Why fire prevention is so important?

This is how you protect persons and property, avoid production losses and minimize secondary damage

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

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

However, the risk of fire is even encouraged unconciously.

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

How high is the risk?

fires occur at industrial and manufacturing properties in the U.S. every year

More than 1 billion $'s per year
of direct property damage

Combustible dust
is the main cause of fires and dust explosions

Consequential damages
are often disastrous events for companies

How can you protect your plant?

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


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


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


Organisational fire protection includes personnel and organisational measures that contribute to prevent a fire from arising or spreading.

Are there Risks in Your Production?

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.

Spark Extinguishing System BS 7

Eliminates sparks

The GreCon Spark Extinguishing System detects ignition sources wherever material is pneumatically or mechanically extracted or transported. Sparks or glowing embers are eliminated before severe damage is caused.

Machine Fire Protection FLAMEWOLF

Extinguishes arising fire

GreCon develops protection concepts for machines on the basis of the individual requirements of that particular production process. Thanks to a modular design and a large range of detection and extinguishing equipment, GreCon machinery protection solutions are applied in many industries or applications.
