Latest certification process
protecfire conducted at RISE (Sweden) tests for fire suppression systems intended for engine compartments according to SP Method 4912, UNECE R107, AIS 135 – SPCR 183 or SPCR 199 (P-mark).
Tests made with 4 liters detexline container, with Tiborex Absolute extinguishing agent.
All tests were successful.

Regulation for Fire Suppression Systems in Engine Compartments of Buses, Coaches
This document includes a fire-testing procedure for fire suppression systems for engine compartments of buses and coaches and includes four tests extracted from SP Method 4912 (SP is a Technical Service for UNECE Regulation No. 107)
The requirements of fire suppression systems apply to: single-deck double-deck rigid or articulated vehicles Category M2 or M3 and specifically vehicles having a capacity exceeding 22 passengers in addition to the driver – “Class III”. Class III vehicles are constructed exclusively for the carriage of seated passengers, more commonly referred to as “coaches”.
The smaller and most effective systems in the world!
4 Lt System (smaller vehicles)
7 Lt System (up to 4m3)
14 Lt System
24 Lt System
– Multiple containers can be installed in 1 system
– Sectorization possibility (battery compartment/engine) with different areas of detection and extinguishing.
Functions and mode of operation
What are the features of the fire-suppression system?
The fire-suppression system is based on the principle of a fine spray extinguishing system. The protecfire nozzles spray the extinguishing agent TiboRex Absolute as very fine droplets. The extinguishing agent droplets wet, impregnated and cool the burning surfaces.
Through reflections and turbulence, the extinguishing agent also reaches adjacent areas, which enables the entire engine compartment to be protected.
– Unpressurised standby mode for improved safety: The fire-suppression system is not pressurized until it is triggered.
– Low maintenance: first regular component replacement after 5 years.
– Self-sustaining without external energy: protecfire suppression systems operate pneumatically-mechanically. This means that they do not require any additional power supply.
– Automatic and/or manual triggering: Automatic triggering is effected by fire detection elements. The fire-suppression system can also be triggered by a pneumatic manual release mechanism.
How does fire detection work?
protecfire uses thermopneumatic fire detection elements to detect fire. These elements only trigger the fire-suppression system if a specified temperature is exceeded. Failure due to the failure of electrical components is thus ruled out.
Fire detection elements with different triggering temperatures can be used because the engine compartment is not a thermally homogeneous area, but contains different temperature zones.
What happens in the event of a fire?
The fire detection elements are connected to a combined control and extinguishing line, the detexline. When a fire detection element is heated to its trigger temperature, a mechanism opens the built-in argon propellant cartridge. This causes an increase in pressure in the line. The pressure increase opens an N2 propellant cartridge in the extinguishing agent container. The released propellant presses the extinguishing agent through the line to the extinguishing nozzles.
What is the detexline concept?
One single pipeline network!
detexline by protecfire, is a patented system that uses only one network of piping for detection and extinguishing.
– Better value
– Avoids malfunctions
– Fastest to install
– Easy to provide maintenance
Avoiding the usual fuse plastic tube detection, there is only one path to the system work: stainless-steel or galvanized piping with pneumatic activation from the detection, followed by the liquid agent discharge by the same piping.
Fine Spray Nozzle Bars
Completely made of stainless steel, are the fastest way to install a fire suppression system in compartments.
Installation time was reduced by more than 50%.
90º Angle Spray – a perfect fine spray for temperature reduction and penetration.
