Fire protection systems made to improve safety in the waste management and recycling industry

Technological progress has changed our life for the better in many ways, but also provided us with a lot more waste to handle. Working in the waste management and recycling industry you are faced with a lot of unique challenges.

Currently, the industry is put under pressure after several high-profile fires in waste and recycling facilities over the world. With the wide range of fire hazards, the facilities are facing solutions that can mitigate fires as early as possible to avoid significant damage are crucial. Especially as the materials processed in waste recycling are getting increasingly dangerous.

Therefore, Dafo Vehicle has developed fire protection systems designed to meet the industry’s needs. 

We also offer well-proven vehicle fire suppression systems for mobile crushers, which can be installed either at the manufacturer or after delivery.

All our fire suppression systems are designed, installed, and maintained following the appropriate standards.

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 a disaster.  

Dafo Vehicle’s systems are easy to maintain and refill on-site which reduces downtime and operational costs when machines many times operate in remote places.
