Due to the increasing concentration of value, fires in the storage areas of production facilities lead to high damage costs if fire-detection and firefighting systems fail to respond as quickly as possible. Therefore, where the risk of fire is high, any fire has to be tackled quickly and effectively in the propagation phase to prevent the fire from spreading.
Nowadays, more and more businesses store their goods in load carriers made of plastic products (including small and large load carriers – SLCs and LLCs). Due to the chemical and physical properties of the plastics used, it is difficult to control a fire successfully if fire breaks out.
With CalanMegaDrop® powered by EuroSprinkler, you are effectively protected against risks in freestanding warehouses and block-stacking areas with storage containers made of plastic or with stored plastic at a storage height of up to 4.60 m and a maximum roof or ceiling height of up to 13.70 m.
The system can also provide effective protection for the risks involved in storage type ST1 up to Fire Hazard Class HHS4 (in accordance with VdS CEA 4001) and a maximum permissible storage height of 4.40 m with a maximum ceiling height of 13.7 m without requiring an increase in the water discharge rate.
In accordance with VdS CEA 4001: 2014-04 (05), the response sensitivity is defined as “fast” with a RTI < 50.
Furthermore, the system uses additive-free firefighting water. This means that a normal firefighting water quality, without the addition of film-forming foaming agents, is sufficient to meet the requirements of VdS CEA 4001.
