Material and packaging concentrations increase the fire risk
As more and more storage space is required, the high-rack warehouses that are built become even bigger. Along with this, it is distinguished between personnel-operated and fully automated high-rack systems. Both the stored goods and the concentration of packaging material pose a high fire risk. In addition, the open, high and spacious way of construction facilitates quick fire spreading. Fully automated systems must not be entered by personnel and thus require an automated fire suppression system. Quick fire detection and extinguishing is crucial.
Goods to be protected:
- Stored goods and packaging
Requirements to the firefighting technology
High-rack warehouses are normally protected by sprinkler systems. It is distinguished between automatically activated ceiling sprinklers and in-rack sprinkler systems. More protection is however ensured by deluge systems, which are recommended depending on the type of stored goods.
Stationary proportioners for firefighting with foam
Some types of fire can be fought effectively only when using foam. For this purpose, stationary proportioners are also installed in high-rack warehouses, supplying premix to sprinkler and deluge systems for the generation of fire extinguishing foam.
Our stationary proportioners are highly reliable. They guarantee a constant proportioning rate and the delivery of all foam agent types.
Fire risks in warehousing
Material and packaging concentration:
The risk of a fire in high-rack warehousing is high due to the concentration of materials and packaging.
