How it works 

We use a unique agent (Forrex) which has been specially formulated for use in mobile plant fire protection.  

Upon triggering the fire protection system, it coats the vehicle compartment in this liquid, cutting off oxygen and quickly stopping the fire. Coating the engine also removes the risk of reignition, allowing the engine to safely cool down until that risk has passed. 

The system consists of three integrated sections, which quickly work together to detect and eliminate fires. 

Firstly, a linear heat detection cable, which has been positioned in high risk areas of the machinery, detects the fire starting and connects the circuit. This automatically activates the fire suppression system. 

Upon activation, the alarm will trigger, alerting operators and anyone nearby of the budding fire to allow them to quickly get to safety. Alongside this, the suppression system activates, coating the engine in our Forrex agent, eliminating the fire and ensuring you don’t need to worry about reignition. 

The video below shows how the system works in a vehicle in detail alongside providing an insight into our installation process.
