Fire protection in the agricultural sector
Fire safety is a key concern for companies that are active in the agricultural sector. As they often have to deal with crops and organic material stored in storage rooms near cattle and other high-risk areas, a suitable fire prevention system is vital. A system that can deal with incipient fires quickly and effectively, directly at potential fire sources such as technical areas, switch boxes, and grain dust without damaging these sources.
Over the past few years, we have seen a rise in fire incidents in the Dutch agricultural sector. The consequences were disastrous, resulting in massive losses in cattle and crops. This has also resulted in a better focus on fire prevention in this sector. New regulations were adopted, including the obligation to fit stables with extinguishing water systems.
FirePro, however, uses a component – condensed aerosol – which can extinguish the fire quicker and more effectively than water, and directly at the source. The FirePro certified condensed aerosol extinguishing system is harmless to people, cattle, and the environment. They are easy to install in high-risk spaces and ensure that the fire is extinguished at the source.
Harmless to people, animals, and the environment
The FirePro fire extinguishing installations are highly effective and minimise the consequential damages. This is because the FirePro extinguishing agent, condensed aerosol, is non-corrosive. Conventional extinguishing systems use extinguishing agents such as water, dry chemicals, and carbon dioxide (CO2). These agents involve a major safety hazard and cause huge damages.
Practical and sustainable extinguishing systems
The FirePro stainless steel extinguishing systems are robust, reliable, and highly effective. They are easy to install and minimise the adverse effects resulting from a fire. An additional advantage is that a FirePro extinguishing installation is a much better investment compared to conventional extinguishing systems as our installations are low-maintenance and have a lifespan of at least 15 years.
Time and again, FirePro extinguishing installations prove to be the best choice for fire protection and limiting the damages for companies active in this sector. A FirePro extinguishing installation is the most sustainable investment to protect cattle, equipment, and spaces.
