Extinguishing systems

Active extinguishing systems is a vital component in the fire protection of buildings, industrial premises and transportation.

The exintuishing system is activated and limits the development of a fire in the early stage, often long before the rescue service has arrived.

We test the efficiency of the extinguishing systems in accordance with international test methods and also test the function of the technical components of the system. Furthermore we can perform test adjusted for different applications and for the development of extinguishing systems.
