Industry Risks

There are several risk zones and ways a fire can break out in rail related equipment. We have seen a large increase in the number of electrical and data devices being applied to rail. Added to this the ever-present danger of electrical fires in switching gear and transformers can start from lack of maintenance, electrical faults, and overheating. The truth is the consequences of these fires can be catastrophic to the rail facility and surrounding area. 

To reduce this, risks are assessed and the installation of a quick responding fire suppression system is implemented. This will ensure that the equipment only sustains minor damage, the operator is safe, and the surrounding areas are preserved. Other safeguards that could be implemented to reduce fire risks would be adding fire extinguishers which are placed on the equipment and surrounding areas. 


Fire damage to rail facilities, switching gear, electrical panels and the line shut down are just some examples. Without fast suppression, one of the consequences of a fire anywhere in a piece of equipment is damage. There is an extremely high likelihood of the fire spreading rapidly and the damage may not only be contained to the ignition area or to that piece of equipment. Fire and smoke can spread to another piece of equipment and lives could also be at risk.

A fire that has not been quickly detected, can cause serious damage if left too long. The fire will be much larger and take much more time to extinguish. A slow extinguishment is risking not only major damage and shutdowns, but the lives of the operators and staff.

The BlazeCut Difference

Before quoting and installing a fire system the risks needs to be considered. This way we are ensuring the best suited protection, with the best possible outcome in case of a fire. A system then can be correctly designed to ensure the best outcome. 


When a fire occurs the BlazeCut fire suppression system automatically actuates the suppression function within a matter of seconds of the fire starting suppressing the fire within
seconds. This helps reduce the amount of damage caused by the fire. A Fire system to suit smaller support equipment and switches would be the BlazeCut T series.  


For the larger pieces of equipment, a BlazeCut C series can be designed to suit the particular application with the option of having of up to three agents depending on the surrounding environment. A BlazeCut fire suppression system is invaluable, by avoiding major fire damage, as it can protect Staff and assets.
