Fogtec - Fire Protection

Fire fighting systems for tunnels

designed for tunnels

A multitude of tests have shown that major fires in tunnels can only be prevented effectively if an initial fire is brought under control as early as possible. Conventional methods of structural fire protection or smoke extraction systems alone cannot assure this. Automatic fire fighting systems in tunnels increase the level of safety and availability considerably.This is where FOGTEC firefighting systems come into consideration, fighting fires immediately once they have broken out in a tunnel.
