Approvals and certifications

A number of new national and international standards and rules have entered into effect which have greatly refined the field of fire protection for rail vehicles over the past few years. And as a result, an extremely high level of protection has now been achieved. The TSI (Technical Specification for Interoperability), EN 45545 and EN 50553 define measures which should be taken to fit rail vehicles with active fire protection systems. These stricter specifications increase tunnel safety and ultimately protect the rail vehicles themselves. As a result, fire protection systems for rail vehicles have become state-of-the-art installations. Fire protection systems are also increasingly used to compensate for structural shortcomings. For example, there is no longer any need to install complex smoke extraction systems in underground stations if the rail vehicles passing through them are equipped with automatic fire detection, fire extinguishing or fire fighting systems. Italy has played a pioneering role. In Italy, all rails vehicles which travel through tunnels more than 1 km long must be equipped with a water mist fire extinguishing system.
As a certified manufacturer and installer of fire protection solutions for rail-specific applications, WAGNER can deliver everything from fire detection to extinguishing.
