No chance for warehouse fire

LogiMAT 2019

The Minimax brand stands for dependable and innovative fire protection in modern warehouses and logistics centers. The Minimax logistics expert team supports customers with fire protection solutions that are tailored precisely to the respective risks through the selection of suitable technologies and competent engineering. You can meet the Minimax team of experts at LogiMAT in Stuttgart from 19 to 21 February 2019 at Stand D05 in Hall 7.

The fact that fire protection solutions dependably and efficiently protect logistics buildings is not new.  But the fact that an innovative fire protection concept generates a return on investment is unique. Minimax will be showing at LogiMAT how this can be achieved with Oxeo EcoPrevent FC: Minimax and Fuji N₂telligence combine a fuel cell system with an Oxeo EcoPrevent fire prevention system and thus enable economical fire protection at the highest level. The fuel cell system generates electricity, air conditioning and heat and, as a by-product, oxygen-reduced air, which is used for the Oxeo EcoPrevent fire prevention system. A nitrogen generator is no longer necessary, the operating costs of e.g. refrigerated storage can be significantly reduced and at the same time the environment is protected.
Visitors to the Minimax stand will be able to literally grasp the subject: The interaction of the two systems will be explained using a 3D model of the fuel cell and an animation.

As a rule, high-bay warehouses are protected with classic sprinklers. InRackPack sprinklers provide dependable shelf protection and save valuable storage space. The use of particularly flat sleeves and Minimax Type 21 sprinklers reduces the distance between the upper edge of the sprinkler pipe and the sprinkler deflector. The sprinklers used with with flat spray characteristics also allow smaller distances between the sprinkler deflector and the stored goods and thus offer maximum space for the goods to be stored on the shelf.
The fire protection experts will be demonstrating at the trade fair how the installation situation and spray pattern of InRackPack sprinklers and classic sprinklers differ with the functional model of a high-bay warehouse.

Hazardous material warehouses pose the greatest risks of a rapid spread of fire and the devastating consequences of a fire for people and the environment. This makes the use of the right extinguishing system all the more important. Depending on the stored goods, however, the entire spectrum of fire extinguishing systems is used in these warehouses. Oxeo inert gas or carbon dioxide extinguishing systems are often the preferred solution, as fires are extinguished quickly and residue-free and possible reactions between fire material and extinguishing agent are excluded.  Foam extinguishing systems are a possible alternative.

You can find out which extinguishing system is the optimum solution for your hazardous material store at the Minimax stand.
