Taking the bus to work, kindergarten or sports? For many people this is everyday life. None of the passengers think about a possible fire in the bus. But we are aware of this danger and, together with our partners, are developing solutions for greater safety when driving by bus – even with compact engine compartments in the vehicle.
According to analyses by the DEKRA expert organization, 75 percent of all bus fires occur in the engine compartment. The specialist for fire protection and early fire detection, the company Protecfire from Luebeck, has developed a new space-saving extinguishing system with just one line especially for the protection of buses and trucks.
The company turned to Jäger Gummi und Kunststoff GmbH with the challenge of being able to pump the extinguishing agent precisely into the pipeline, regardless of its position.
