Rotarex Firetec Fire Suppression System For Off-Road Vehicles Earns FA 127:16 Certification
Rotarex Firetec Compact Line System Provides Complete Fire Detection & Suppression for Forest & Construction Vehicles
Lintgen, Luxembourg 25 September 2018—www.rotarexfiretec.com—Rotarex Firetec, a business unit of Rotarex SA, is proud to announce that its Compact Line Fire Suppression System for forest and construction vehicles has earned FA 127:16 certification.
Finland Finance (FA) FA 127:16 (previously FK 127:2012) is one of the most recognized certifications for any off-road vehicle protection system, and is mandatory for forest and construction vehicles operating in Finland.
Certification is based on safety guidance published by FA. Among other things, guidance includes design and installation instructions, as well as a description of a full-scale fire test for heavy-duty vehicle engine compartment extinguishing systems using testing methods similar to Sweden's SBF 127 protocols.
The Compact Line Compact Fire Suppression System is pre-engineered for off-road equipment and automatically detects and extinguishes electrical and mechanical fires before they cause widespread damage to vehicles and occupants.
By being installed directly INSIDE the motor compartment, closer to where a fire would likely start, The Compact Line provides fast and effective fire detection and suppression that prevents a bad situation from getting much more costly than necessary. And it does it with superior efficiency—passing certification testing with only 4L of extinguishing agent for a 2,25 m3 engine compartment, versus the standard 6,75L typically required for this volume.
The Compact Line is available from Rotarex service centers and distributors worldwide.
