Safety first – fire protection plays an important role in each production.
The goal of fire protection is to effectively protect persons and property against the dangers and effects of fire. Furthermore, it is necessary to minimise material damdage that is caused by production interruptions or loss of customers.
However, the risk of fire is even encouraged unconciously.
In order to optimise profit, production facilities become more and more efficient, and production losses are inacceptable. But fire and explosions are a risk factor in many processes.
How high is the risk?
Every 5 minutes
a fire breaks out in German companies
More than 2 billion € per year
is the damage sum for German factories.
Glowining embers & smouldering fire
are often the cause of fires and explosions
are often disastrous events for concerned companies
of the companies survive. Often by merger or acquisition.
the companies are insolvent by damage caused by fire
of the companies are insolvent within 3 years by loss of customers
Structural fire protection helps to prevent fires and to isolate them. A burning fire is prevented from spreading.
Fire-proof doors – have the task to prevent the spreading of fire for a certain time period.
By technical fire protection, one understands facilities that, in case of fire, automatically contribute to avoid personal injuries or property damage.
Spark extinguishing systems – detect and eliminate ignition sources before a fire or dust explosion is caused.
Organisational fire protection includes personnel and organisational measures that contribute to prevent a fire from arising or spreading.
Training of staff – orginsational measures, such as instruction in the use of fire extinguishers or evacuation exercises, can counteract in the case of fire.
Areas of application
Damage is caused in downstream plant areas and not in the place of origin of the sparks (e.g. dryer, burner, sander etc.). Therefore a spark extinguishing system is the safest solution.
GreCon develops protection concepts for object protection on the basis of the individual requirements of the particular production process. Thanks to a modular design and a large range of detection and extinguishing equipment, GreCon object protection solutions are applied in many industries.
