FAQ Oxygen reduction

Traditional fire protection systems are passive, meaning they only react after a fire has started. Our OxyReduct® preventive oxygen reduction system, on the other hand, works before a fire starts, actively ensuring maximum safety. We have summarized the most important and frequently asked questions about fire prevention through oxygen reduction in our FAQs.

Legal fire protection requirements and standards for warehouse buildings

Anyone building a high-bay warehouse has to take into account a large number of regulations and standards. Special attention must be paid to the fact that the legal requirements and normative protection goals, which primarily focus on the protection of human life, may differ from those of the warehouse operator.

Fire detection in high-bay warehouses

Supply chains must be maintained, sensitive operational processes must not be disrupted and, ultimately, damage to people, goods and equipment must be averted. Read the following article and find out what requirements high-bay warehouses place on fire detection and which system is particularly suitable.

Fire alarm technology - Technologies for combating false alarms

False alarms have become increasingly rare in industrial areas over the past 15 years. Where there was previously no adequate fire detection, fires are now often detected very early on – with practically no false alarms. The following article explains why this is the case, and what role air sampling smoke detectors play in this development.

Preventative fire protection for hazardous materials storage - Save from fires in hazardous storage areas

In hazardous materials warehouses, safety poses major challenges for both operators and fire protection officers. The stored goods are combustible, moderately or highly inflammable, or perhaps even capable of spontaneous ignition. They often have fire- or explosion-conducive characteristics as well. Fire prevention concepts based on reducing hazard potential from the beginning have proven effective at keeping these dangers at bay.

Ensuring fire prevention systems are ready for service: Maintenance is a must!

If a fire breaks out in a production facility, its fire prevention system needs to function perfectly. Professional maintenance plays a very important role in this. After all, if the system fails to work due to inadequate maintenance, there can be serious consequences – especially for the operator. There are clear guidelines concerning what types of maintenance should be carried out when and by whom.

Fire protection - Fire prevention/oxygen reduction systems

Oxygen reduction is a fire prevention technology used with increasing frequency in a variety of sectors, particularly in information technology (IT and server rooms), warehouses (e.g. small-load carrier, hazardous material and deep freeze stores) and archives. These systems reduce the oxygen content of the air to levels that will prevent the outbreak of fire, based on the materials being stored or the equipment being protected.
