Transportation & Rail Fire Suppression Systems

Transportation & Rail Fire Suppression Systems

Protecting What Matters Most for Transportation and Rail

Passenger safety on public transportation is your number one consideration should a fire occur. Avoiding downtime and schedule interruptions is also critical--busy lives demand reliable transportation.  Any downtime at all can be damaging for your company's reputation for being a reliable, punctual means of transportation.

Engines, transfer stations, control rooms, main communications center, subway stations, computer rooms, trains and subway cars--all are high-value assets.  All are vulnerable to fire. And all demand a proven fire suppression system to keep them up and running--and keep passengers on the go.

Traditional fire extinguishing agents such as water and dry chemicals can cause damage to high-value equipment and contribute to downtime. The DuPont family of fire extinguishants provides an exceptional alternative to Halon. They are safe for people, electronically nonconductive, noncorrosive and free of residue.

Keeping passengers safe and on time is what matters most--to you and to us.
