Fires in vehicles can pose a great danger to passengers and other road users. Statistics show an increased risk of fire in coaches in particular, which is why the new EU regulation UNECE R107 stipulates the installation of fire suppression systems in local buses, as well as intercity buses and coaches. Vehicles in passenger transport classes M2 and M3 should also be equipped with fire extinguishing systems to counteract the increased fire risk.
According to an analysis by Dekra, around 80% of bus fires occur in the engine compartment. Dekra’s fire analyses come to the conclusion that fire suppression systems would have triggered in the vast majority of cases. Scalable fire suppression systems that can be installed directly in the engine compartment are the optimal solution for minimizing damage and hazards in the event of bus fires.
