A fire in a bus engine or enclosed compartment can be devastating for both driver and passengers, and can result in unwanted downtime, stand-still on a highway, and complete destruction of the bus.
Outstanding choking and cooling effect during a longer time makes safe evacuation possible*.

The system is always ready. No power supply needed for activation or system monitoring.
A SUPERIOR SUPPRESSION TECHNOLOGY LIMITS THE CONSEQUENCES
Fogmaker takes safety seriously. Fogmaker fire suppression system with high pressure water mist is a superior suppression technology in an engine or enclosed compartment, limiting the consequences of a bus fire.
-HOW IT WORKS
OUTSTANDING CHOKING AND COOLING TECHNOLOGY
High-pressure water mist has an outstanding choking and cooling effect. The system is always active – no power supply is needed for activation or system monitoring. Fogmaker chokes the fire quickly, yet has a longer emptying time than many competing systems – which is critical to prevent reignition and downtime. This also buys valuable time for evacuation.
A SMALL BUT IMPORTANT INVESTMENT
The investment in an efficient high-pressure water mist system will only be a miniscule part of the total investment when procuring new buses. In case of a fire, the effectiveness of the system limits the damage and helps keep repair costs down.
Throughout the world, organizations have found automated fire suppression systems in the engine room an important fire safety measure. Furthermore, some insurance companies and bus operators require fire suppression systems, and the demand is rising, in part due to new legislation according to UN ECE R107.
About 50 European countries have signed this legislation, and countries outside Europe seem to follow. In practice, R107 means that every new bus that exceeds 22 passengers must have an OEM homologated fire suppression system in the vehicle.
