Leading Australian fire protection specialist Wormald offers a range of vehicle fire suppression systems designed to protect heavy vehicles against risk of fire.
Safety and security are key considerations for all industries involved in the transportation of materials.
Risk of fire in transit can be high considering the many combustible components in trucks, forklifts or vans including ignition/heat sources such as engines and transmissions as well as onboard goods.
Wormald’s range of vehicle fire suppression systems provides vital risk management for heavy vehicles against the threat of fire.
Wormald’s vehicle fire suppression systems are designed to suppress fires occurring in areas such as the engine and transmission compartments as well as brakes and hydraulic areas of all kinds of vehicles from huge mining and quarrying plant and equipment to small forklifts and 4WDs.
Wormald’s formalised fire risk assessment conducted in accordance with Australian Standard AS 5062-2006: Fire Protection for Mobile & Transportable Equipment can determine the level of fire risk and provide the most appropriate system to address that risk.
The assessment is done based on the combustible nature of materials being transported such as logs, wood chips, paper, fuel and other explosive materials.
Wormald’s foam water spray vehicle fire suppression systems and the Ansul A-101 vehicle powder systems are both ActivFire listed complying with AS 5062.
Wormald offers the SAPPHIRE engine strangler system for vehicles transporting fuel.
These vehicle fire suppression systems use a unique sustainable chemical agent to powerfully suppress fire and are designed to minimise damage to the mechanics, electronics and people.
