Fire protection for Forestry machines & wheel loaders

Working with forestry means that you often work in harsh and often islotaed locations. Forestry machines often run at high temperaturescarry large amounts of flammable oils and fuels as well as tend to accumulate highly flammable debris in and around hot areasIn addition, workers are surrounded by flammable materials like wood chips, sawdust and trees and they are often working several kilometers away from any emergency assistance. If a fire breaks out on a forestry machine the results can be dramatic not only to the machine itself but due to the risk of the environment it is in.  

In Sweden insurance companies demand on-board fire suppression systems on machinery used for forestry, peat, and chipping. The Dafo Vehicle fire protection system is particularly effective for forest machinery, where a combination of fibrous materials with oils and fuels can cause severe fires. 
 
Dafo Vehicle’s systems are easy to maintain and refill on site which reduce downtime and operational costs when machines many times operate in remote places. 

Engines, hydraulics, fuel and electrical installations pose the greatest fire risks in vehicles. These fires often spread quickly and are hard to extinguish with a handheld extinguisher. Correctly planned and installed, a fire suppression system is a fast and effective way of providing the protection you need to prevent disaster.
