Introduction into the Firematic System
Applications Of Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems
The Firematic Vehicle system is a versatile fire suppression system for Class A, B & C fires all of which are extremely commonplace in this
These can present themselves as a spray fire (burst hydraulic hose), pool fire (collection of diesel from a fuel line), short circuit (faulty/
damaged wiring loom) and/or fuel leakage (Faulty connections dripping oil on to a hot surface). All these fire conditions are covered by
the Firematic vehicle fire suppression systems.
All systems can be easily scaled up or down to suit the large range of Vehicles.

Benefits Of Fitting Firematic Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems
No Electrical Power Needed
The majority of systems on the market rely on a constant source of power to detect and activate the system. At Firematic through over 20 years of experience we know that relying on a constant supply of electricity on mobile equipment for detection and activation is not ideal.
Many systems on the market fail to detect and activate due to loss of power to the control panel, relying on the operator to activate the system.
The Firematic system is constantly in automatic mode regardless of the power method of the machine.
Dry Powder is an outstanding fire suppression agent due to its rapid fire knock down capabilities and its ability to tackle hidden fires that liquid systems may not be able to reach. Firematic’s Dry Powder provides a large suppression area due to its particle size, it can quickly cause a fire to expend its energy heating up the particles and therefore provide a “cooling effect”. The Dry Powder will also provide chemical inhibition, reacting with the radical and arrest the chemical combustion process. Combined with the superior layering and barrier effect Dry Powder is the agent of choice for vehicle fire protection.
Firematic Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems Components
Firematic uses Firematic Tubing to activate system that is immune to gas, oil, dirt, vibration and extreme temperature, yet is reliable enough to avoid false discharges.
Stored pressure tanks are installed with sizes ranging from 5kg – 50kg allowing less complications than a multi tank system, no compaction of powder on Firematic system as it is a stored pressure system and not a cartridge operated system.
Manual actuators are installed in cab for easy activation for operator. Actuators are not activated by striking hard on actuator knowbs, but activated by only turning a switch, thus ensuring operator activates system under panic of fire.
Firematic hoses are clearly marked and are red in colour for easy identification.
