All signals converge in the fire alarm control panel, which reliably supplies the responsible offices with all relevant information. In addition, the fire detection technology is often used to control and monitor the functions of all fire protection systems.
Water is the most natural of all extinguishing agents and is usually available in sufficient quantities at low cost. It binds smoke as well as pollutants, the extinguishing effect is based on its heat binding capacity.
Minifog water mist extinguishing systems spray extinguishing water very finely through special nozzles and sprinklers and/or increased operating pressures. The total surface area of the water increases so that it absorbs heat more quickly and evaporates. The resulting cooling and smothering effect enables particularly effective firefighting with reduced use of extinguishing water.
In case of fire, foam extinguishing systems distribute foam over a large area via foam pipes, foam monitors, sprinklers or nozzles. The foam covers the combustible material, extinguishes the fire and has a preventive effect against re-ignition. Foam extinguishing systems are suitable for protecting areas with increased risks, such as those posed by flammable liquids or plastics.In case of fire, foam extinguishing systems distribute foam over a large area via foam pipes, foam monitors, sprinklers or nozzles.

Gas extinguishing systems fight fires without side effects and without extinguishing agent residues even in places that cannot be reached by sprinklers. Extinguishing is done by oxygen displacement with the inert gases argon, nitrogen and carbon dioxide and by heat extraction with the synthetic gases.
Small extinguishing systems are often similar in design to larger extinguishing systems. They are not characterised by a specific extinguishing agent, but rather by their compact design and their precisely tailored and thus particularly good suitability for specific applications.
Spark extinguishing systems detect ignition initials in extraction and conveying equipment and generate a water curtain at lightning speed via an automatic extinguishing system to extinguish glowing particles. They are used wherever flammable materials are transported pneumatically and there is a high risk of fires or dust explosions caused by sparks or embers.
Fire prevention systems reduce the oxygen content of the air in the protected area through the targeted supply of nitrogen to such an extent that a "fire-safe" atmosphere is created. This prevents a fire from starting in the first place. Depending on the fire prevention system used, the build-up of the "fire-safe" atmosphere is either permanent or demand-controlled.
The Inveron hazard management system is a clear and user-friendly system for visualising and operating fire alarm, extinguishing and hazard detection systems. All messages and events are automatically brought together on one interface and displayed graphically on the screen. Especially with extensive, complex building structures, Inveron thus enables ideal monitoring.
