Fire protection with environmentally friendly technology

Aerosol fire extinguishing systems

Aerosol fire extinguishing systems fight fires by precisely distributing gases and particles and are extremely environmentally friendly. With VdS inspections and combined insurance assessments, we offer you the safety and planning security you need.

Aerosol fire extinguishing systems are an innovative addition to classic extinguishing systems, as they rely on the precise distribution of gases and solid or liquid particles to fight fires efficiently. The special aerosol extinguishing agent is created by the targeted combustion of a solid in the generators and consists of fine potassium carbonate particles that are around one micrometer in size.

The decisive advantage of this technology lies in its environmental friendliness, as the central element of the aerosol, potassium hydrogen carbonate, is converted into water and carbon dioxide at around 50 degrees Celsius, leaving behind pure potassium carbonate, which is considered harmless and is even approved as a food additive.
