Millions of people rely on public transportation every day and busses are considered one of the safest forms of travel, but, safety regulations can always be improved! In 2016, The Working Party on General Safety (GRSG) decided that automatic fire suppression systems will be required on all busses with more than 22 passengers of class I, II and III. Additionally, it included a fire testing procedure for fire suppression systems installed in bus engine compartments.
Reliable Pressure Switch for Automatic Fire Suppression in Engine Compartments
Did you know that 2 out of 3 bus fires start in the engine compartment? The engine compartment is a known hazard and what makes things more challenging is the ventilation and fans used for cooling. In the event of a fire, the increases airflow from the fans can cause fires to intensify and spread more quickly. This is one of the reasons why an automatic fire suppression system must be installed. It could potentially save lives.
