Rosenbauer Stationary Fire Protection
Stationary firefighting equipment from Rosenbauer.
Prevention and protection with innovative extinguishing agents.
In addition to the competence and experience as the world`s market leader,
it is primarily the innovative firefighting technology that makes Rosenbauer's
fire protection concepts so effective.
Optimum extinguishing agent.
In order to effectively intervene in an emergency, Rosenbauer's stationary extinguish-
ing systems use mostly water and foam as extinguishing agents. The extinguishing
agent is adjusted accordingly for the objects and materials to be protected. The extin-
guishing effect of water is based on its ability to cool sustainably. Through evaporation
of the water, energy is taken out of the fire which makes it impossible for the fire
to sustain. An even better extinguishing result is achieved by admixing film-forming
foaming agents. The cooling effect is reinforced as the surfactants present in the
foam compound reduces the surface tension of the water and can penetrate deep into
the burning material. Through the formation of a foam blanket, the burning material is
separated from oxygen, the fire suffocated, and heat radiation is prevented.
Innovative firefighting equipment.
To extinguish particularly effectively in an emergency, Rosenbauer relies on the highly
efficient CAFS compressed air foam technology. CAFS offers effective protection for
different fire classes in a variety of applications. Through its excellent foam quality
and extinguishing performance with small water requirements, CAFS extinguishing
systems offer a superb alternative to conventional water extinguishing systems.
The CAFS technology.
In the CAFS mixing chamber the water-foaming agent mixture is actively
turned into foam at a certain ratio via the introduction of compressed air.
This creates foam of a unique quality, which increases the available
extinguishing agent quantity multiple times due to the small air bubbles.
The mixing chamber is protected against external influences, so that the
foam quality cannot be affected by fumes. CAFS foam is transported in the
pipes and distributed over the whole surface of the seat of the fire via the
output devices.
