Fires in forestry machines often take hold quickly and are hard to extinguish with a handheld extinguisher. Correctly designed and installed, an extinguishing system is an effective and quick way for providing the protection you need to prevent disaster.
With more than 30 years of experience, our extinguishing systems for heavy machines have outstanding reliability under the most demanding conditions. Dafo was the first company to be approved by SBF in accordance with SBF 127, surpassing the most rigorous extinguishing tests in engine compartments.
Insurance companies require on-board fire suppression systems on machinery used for forestry, chipping and peat. Many leading manufacturers of forestry machinery install Dafo extinguishing systems as standard, including: John Deere, CAT, Timberpro, Komatsu Forest, Eco-Log, Ponsse.
The patented Forrex extinguishing agent used in our systems is specially designed for use in fires involving hydrocarbons, fibrous materials and fluids. It is highly effective on fires in flammable liquids such as oil, diesel and hydraulic oil, and also in solid materials such as wood, shavings or waste — making them particularly effective for forestry machines.
