Firestorm fire suppression equipment for various types of trucks
Truck fires are increasing year on year and with greater environmental demands for lower emissions, the engine temperatures and engine pressures are increasing. This provides an increased risk of fires in the engine compartment. Statistics released by NTI for 2017 indicate that over 60 per cent of truck fire occur in the engine compartment / cabin.
Firestorm use a new style fire suppression systems that are compact, environmentally friendly and actively cool the engine compartment. The Loss of Pressure detection system provides piece of mind as the system is always active – even when the truck is off. The Fogmaker system has a discharge duration in excess of 50 seconds that provides ample time for the driver to safely egress and start their fire incident process.
Our Fire Suppression System has:
- Active cooling of the compartment that reduces temperature by over 700 degrees within 15 seconds
- Detection that activates with no delay required, unlike other systems
- Discharge duration of 50 to 90 seconds which allows sufficient time to evacuate
- Hydro-pneumatic activation which does not require ignition or battery power
