Case Study: Davert

Fire protection from WAGNER protects completely automated high-bay warehouse

In its high-bay warehouse, Davert relies on the innovative fire protection solutions from WAGNER. In the automated warehouse at the company's location in Ascheberg, which went into operation in spring 2017, an oxygen reduction system together with an early fire detection system, which have been tested in accordance with VdS 3527 Schadenverhütung and DGUV 105-001, protects the goods from fires and consequential fire damage.

The fully automated high-bay warehouse can store up to 7,400 pallets at a height of 24 meters - which corresponds to a volume of 38,400 cubic meters. Davert opted for the OxyReduct® oxygen reduction system rather than a sprinkler system for reasons of efficiency and lower costs. Davert also relies on sustainability and future-proofing for its energy supply: a photovoltaic system is located on the roof, which generates up to 500 kilowatt hours per year and thus also supplies the electricity for the fire protection system.

The medium-sized company Davert GmbH was founded in 1973, is one of the pioneers of natural food producers and is now one of the largest natural food suppliers in Germany.

Fire Prevention for a Natural-Foods Supplier Steeped in Tradition

Risk Analysis

  • Automation
    Davert relies on a fully automated warehouse. Here, technical defects and errors in the electrical system represent a risk.
  • Goods
    Many of the stored goods have good flammability, so that a fire can spread quickly.
  • Storage type
    The storage height and narrow design favour the chimney effect in case of fire.

Protection Goals

Simple, Natural Fire Protection

WAGNER installed an OxyReduct® oxygen reduction system with energy-efficient V-Line technology. The system reduces the oxygen concentration inside the fully automated high-bay storage facility to a level below the ignition threshold of the critical materials in the warehouse. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors were installed to provide the earliest possible smoke detection.

Customer Benefits

  • Efficiency
    Installing the fire prevention system cost Davert around 1/3 less than a sprinkler system would have.
  • Installation
    The WAGNER system is easy to service. Thanks to its extensive network of branch locations, WAGNER also scores big on maintenance quality.
  • Safety
    With more than 800 OxyReduct® systems installed worldwide, WAGNER has extensive international experience.
