FOGTEC Rail Systems – fire protection in rolling stock

designed for Rail

Our smoke detectors and fire fighting systems are specially developed for rolling stock and tailored to special vehicle requirements. FOGTEC Rail Systems is a single-source service provider, and can equally integrate fire protection systems in existing vehicles or supply ready-for-use full solution as part of a turnkey project. The more than 12,000 fire protection systems we have supplied worldwide are an evidence to the trust of our customers and the benefits of our systems in the rail industry.

Fire detection

Effective fire fighting necessitates early and reliable fire detection. FOGTEC Rail Systems can provide product series that offer a wide range of technically diverse, combinable system solutions and assist customers when it comes to the licensing and verification of fire detection components in rail.

Fire fighting

Fire fighting systems enhance safety inside the vehicle while having a positive effect on vehicle availability and the overall cost budget. FOGTEC can supply all of the most common types of fire fighting systems, such as water mist, gas, aerosol and foam.


Compensation is an integral aspect of effective fire fighting and reduces costs. This applies to the construction design of the rolling stock vehicle itself (e.g. weight reduction or material requirements as per EN 45545-2 are reduced) and to freedom of architectural design (e.g. an open gangway). Also the fire protection planning and administration as well as verification or emergency plans can be influenced positively.

Maintenance and service

A worldwide network of rail partners specialised in rolling stock, combined with a service team of our own that is active worldwide, ensure rapid response on all continents in the event of faults as well as for professional maintenance.


use of FOGTEC systems

Our water mist systems are in use throughout the entire rolling stock sector and beyond – from passenger compartments to engines and technical areas to integrative monitoring of rail vehicles and their corresponding infrastructure.
