FOGTEC is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of eco-friendly water mist extinguishing systems for protecting buildings, industrial plants, tunnels and trains. Its portfolio includes both stationary and mobile systems - everything from integrated firefighting systems for underground facilities to tailor-made solutions for railway vehicles. First and foremost, FOGTEC Brandschutz GmbH sees its water mist extinguishing systems as an effective and water-saving alternative to conventional sprinklers and gas extinguishing systems. This has already been verified by thousands of full-scale fire tests and confirmed by corresponding certifications and approvals from international bodies such as VdS and FM.

The principle behind the FOGTEC extinguishing systems is fighting fires with the smallest droplets of pure water, which, when atomized, have a reaction surface more than 200 times greater than that of a sprinkler system. Pressures between 50 and 200 bar ensure extremely effective water atomization and acceleration. The high-pressure mist systems from FOGTEC even generate Class I droplets in accordance with NFPA 750. According to the latest findings, water mist technology also offers optimum protection against new fire hazards related to Li-ion battery applications, an area in which FOGTEC, as a partner of the SUVEREN research project, has gained particular expertise.
