Vehicle fire protection systems for Civil Engineering.

We have years of experience in both above and underground environments and understand the unique problems of your industry. Humid conditions and non-stop production schedules put huge pressure on equipment. Flammable liquids, oils and hydraulic fluids coupled with hot manifolds and engine bays, means the risk of fire is ever present. However large your construction or infrastructure project, we can supply, install and maintain vehicle and mobile plant fire suppression systems that protect staff, prevent damage and minimise downtime.

Helping you meet the unique challenges of civil engineering

Meeting you face-to-face is the start of a robust process that makes sure you get the best system for you.

We know how to deal with fires in confined spaces and in compact machines.

We understand the ins and outs of HSE and other regulations, whether you’re working above or below ground.

We can turn plant hire around very quickly.

Our systems are British Coal approved.
