Fire protection systems for Large Forestry Vehicles.

The environment you operate in is absolutely unique. You work in harsh and often isolated places. Your vehicles run at high temperatures and carry large amounts of flammable oils and fuels. Plus you’re surrounded by chopping debris, wood chips, sawdust and trees. These factors make having an effective vehicle fire suppression system absolutely crucial.

We’re experts at supplying, installing and maintaining systems on even the largest vehicles, allowing you to protect your staff, eliminate production downtime and avoid damage to machinery and the environment.

Helping you meet the unique challenges of forestry

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

We can specify both Ansul and Dafo systems.

In remote locations, call-outs are difficult so we can train your staff to deal with emergency situations.

We make sure systems are self-monitoring so they identify damage, such as that from rats.

Our fast-acting systems buy operators valuable time and allow a quick escape from elevated cabs.

We can help you detect fire quickly - crucial when you’re working with machines carrying vast amounts of fuel.

We can supply, install and maintain.
