Why Ansul fire suppression systems?

The Ansul fire suppression system is designed for use on large off-road construction and mining equipment, such as large excavators, haul trucks, underground mining equipment, tunnel boring machines, and speciality vehicles such as slag, pot, and slab carriers.

Thanks to its dry and wet chemical suppression agents, the Ansul twin agent system combines  for rapid fire knock-down, excellent coverage, and protection against fire re-ignition, offering the highest level of fire protection.

FM-approved Ansul fire protection systems 

Factory Mutual (FM) is one of the most respected and globally recognised standards for heavy vehicle fire suppression. Its global research campus rigorously tests fire protection equipment under actual fire situations to verify they work efficiently each and every time they are used. 

These in-depth tests cover the system's effectiveness in extinguishing types of fires known to occur on mobile plant. Through simulation, these ensure the system can withstand prolonged shock and vibration over its lifespan.

For this reason, FM standard is widely recognised by plant insurers worldwide, providing assurance of Ansul fire suppression system manufacturing, design, and installation quality.

A classic, iconised in Lego

Famous for its construction machinery, mining equipment, cranes, aircraft parts, and various other types of heavy equipment, the Liebherr R 9800 Excavator is even a Lego figure - and we even protect it in Lego form.

We’ve protected the equipment for so long, each Lego excavator has its own Ardent fire suppression system - our red suppression agent tanks with Ardent logos can be found inside.
