The fastest reacting systems for fighting fires from Kraft & Bauer
Our microprocessor controlled extinguishing systems have a wide range of applications within industry and in all cases installations are specifically designed to suit individual machines and applications. Kraft & Bauer’s systems utilise either UV (Ultra Violet) or IR (Infra Red) detectors that are pre-set to react within seconds to the smallest incident.
Our systems are of course CE approved and fully meet the latest safety regulations such as DIN 14497, the professional associations regulations BGR 134, EN (European Standards) and the standard 13478 (Safety of machines).
Wherever there are any machining operations using combustible liquids or an oil based coolant, where machines are operated in production conditions, where self-ignitable materials such as magnesium or titanium alloys are being machined, or where there may be sparks caused by a broken cutting tool or grinding wheel, our systems ensure the safe extinguishing of the resulting fire.
Kraft & Bauer can ensure that your machines, production, and staff are all protected and help you meet your legal responsibilities for fire protection on production machinery of all kinds.
