Liebherr Paint Shop Success Story - Rosenbauer
A capable, custom-built solution from Rosenbauer.
Liebherr had a choice of three different technologies to
achieve the required levels of fire protection: a classic
sprinkler system, a CO² gas extinguishing installation, and
a compressed air foam system (CAFS) from Rosenbauer.
After in-depth analyses, comparisons and various fire tests
to evaluate the application rates, the CAFS concept proved
to be the best overall solution. It is the only one that guar-
antees maximum extinguishing efficiency and burnback
resistance as part of a very simple and economical system.
Like many other Rosenbauer compressed air foam sys-
tems, the Liebherr extinguishing system is a purely
