Fire Suppression Equipment for Vehicles
By installing a fire suppression system vehicle owners can prevent serious damage to their vehicle due to a fuel leak or faulty component. Heavy equipment and commercial vehicles are prone to fire hazards due to extended use and powerful components. There are three stages of fire suppression; Detection, actuation, and distribution.
In some suppression systems, excess heat and or flames are detected with electronic sensors or physical components such as a plastic switch that melts at a certain temperature. Once the fire is detected the system is actuated and most likely a fire retardant material is distributed to the afflicted area. Once the process is complete the fire will be smothered as long as the application meets the recommended standards. Choosing the right system and installing it properly can make the difference between a complete loss and minor damage.
Choosing The Right Fire Suppression System
Fire hazards pose a risk to individuals operating equipment, the equipment itself, and the surrounding property. For a business owner, this kind of risk is absolutely unacceptable. Whenever there is a risk of fire damage or injury it is the equipment or property owners responsibility to reduce this risk as much as possible. This is where fire suppression services come in.
Simply assuming the equipment being operated is safe can be a huge mistake. It’s important to take extra steps to assure compliance with safety standards and provide a safe working environment for employees.
