Fire protection for hazardous material warehouses

Significance of fire protection in hazardous materials storage

The substances stored in hazardous materials warehouses—including solids, liquids and gases—are often flammable; they may be classified as either flammable, highly flammable or extremely flammable. They often have fire- or explosion-conducive characteristics as well. The materials in hazardous materials warehouses represent critical fire risks, making the need for fire protection exceptionally high. Some flammable substances or their combustion residues may also react to oxygen or one another, compounding the danger. Toxic by-products and gases may be formed as a result. To prevent such dangers from occurring, fire prevention is a top priority in hazardous materials warehouses, with the objective of minimising risks to humans, animals and the environment. Business-related concerns are important as well, such as protecting the stored goods against loss, preventing damage to the warehouse itself (including its investment-intensive automation systems), and above all, maintaining normal business operations and thus ensuring the company’s continued delivery capabilities. Disruptions to operating processes should neither occur due to false alarms nor as a result of fire suppression scenarios involving time-consuming, expensive cleaning and disposal work.

Reliable fire protection concept for hazardous goods storage

Active fire prevention combined with CO2 gas extinguishing system

WAGNER worked in cooperation with Fuchs Lubritech and VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH in Cologne to develop a concept that would meet the sophisticated fire protection challenges hazardous materials warehouses pose. The concept protects personnel as well as the building, the goods, the storage technology and the environment. Part of this concept is based on the OxyReduct® active fire prevention system ...

Why WAGNER?

Over the past few years, systems like the ones installed in hazardous materials storage facilities for BASF and Fuchs Lubritech have helped the WAGNER Group GmbH become a leader in active fire prevention.
