Fire protection systems for Rail Laying & Maintenance Machinery.

We’re specialists in creating fire systems for track laying and maintenance machinery. Over the years we’ve worked with Freightliner, Schweerbau, Plasser and Bam Nuttal, so we have enormous experience of the unique restrictions you face. We take into account the constant shock and vibration your machinery experiences and understand that your operators could find themselves on viaducts or in tunnels.

We’re experts at supplying, installing and maintaining systems on even the largest vehicles, helping you protect your staff, reduce downtime and avoid damage to high value machinery.

Helping you meet the unique challenges of rail-mounted vehicles

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

We understand that you need to minimise downtime, so we can work within very limited windows of opportunity.

We also understand that track workers may only have very limited access to undertake any work.

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

We account for your uniquely harsh environment and for the constant shock and vibration of running on steel tracks.

We make sure the operator is always in control of the fire system so they can take account of viaducts, tunnels or other unique situations.
