OxyReduct® for active fire prevention

Oxygen reduction is an ideal solution for active fire prevention. The principle is based on the phenomena, that a fire needs heat, material and oxygen to break out. If there is less oxygen in the atmosphere, fire will simply be deprived of the air it needs. OxyReduct® uses this principle.

Whereas conventional fire systems react once a fire has broken out, OxyReduct® starts way earlier and thus ensures maximum safety. The approved OxyReduct® prevention system feeds the inert gas nitrogen into the protected area. Therefore, the oxygen concentration consistently levels below the ignition threshold of the material to be protected. This avoids long-term consequences of a fire like economic harm, loss of customers and image damage.
