Statistics show that a fire breaks out every two minutes in Germany, frequently causing serious damage. Whether warehouses, data centres or archives, every business needs absolutely reliable fire protection. Companies cannot afford downtime. So when fires occur, apart from protecting people, the most important priority is to maintain business processes.
WAGNER’s product portfolio includes the best fire protection solution to address this challenge: The VdS-approved OxyReduct® fire prevention system. Conventional fire protection systems are passive, meaning that they only react once a fire has broken out. The OxyReduct® preventative oxygen reduction system, on the other hand, actively ensures maximum safety even before fires start. This avoids consequential damage of the type that often occurs when extinguishing with water or other agents, such as foam.
WAGNER’s VdS-approved OxyReduct® fire prevention system makes sure that fires cannot develop in the first place. By feeding a controlled supply of nitrogen into the protected area, it keeps oxygen concentration levels consistently below the ignition threshold of the combustible materials inside. The result: far less risk of open fire.
Our warehouse has to be operational 24/7 no matter what. We can’t afford interruptions of any kind.

One of the biggest challenges was observing the local guidelines so as to provide the Safety Authority inspectors and the customer with a functioning and standard-compliant system. The result was the approval of the first OxyReduct® system within the North American market!

Even in the early stages of the planning process, we knew that [...] our business processes and our warehouse’s automatic logistics processes needed to be maintained no matter what.

The goods are precious and actually being ready to ship them is even more valuable to us. That’s why we’ve invested in good fire protection, in the form of fire prevention.

For our warehouse, a fire prevention system costs about two-thirds of a sprinkler system.
