About a new era of Vehicle Fire Protection
Due to urbanization, public transportation is increasingly under pressure to serve more passengers, buses are bigger and runs at higher frequency. The heart of the bus is the engine which is in a totally enclosed area. Most bus fire starts from the engine compartment and spread very quickly throughout the bus.
Delivering Solutions to modern vehicles
As a result of protecfire‘s ingenuity and consistent research & development of the extinguishing technology for vehicle engine protection, we deliver a revolutionary fire suppression technology that is unlike any others. We call this new system detexline (detection – extinguishing Line); a Non-Pressurized Technology in a single pipeline System.
With this patented system, the extinguishing and pilot function is carried out over just one pipeline, the liquid agent container is compact and factory sealed with no need for pressure gauge, the patented detectors can be selected based on pre-determined temperature for activation (as we believe that the engine compartment has different temperatures at different areas, such as the turbocharger).
APPROVED FOR MINING, CONSTRUCTION, AND ROAD VEHICLES
Our compact design provides saving on material and mounting, this solution takes up less space in the object it protects and can be optimally integrated. Installation is quick and easy as there are only three main components; Liquid Agent container, Detectors, and Spray Bars. No electricity is needed. No plastic tubes as fire detectors!
The protecfire system is developed to use worldwide in both cold and hot climates and was designed after the new UNECE Regulation No R107 and the Swedish regulation SP4912.
The protecfire extinguishing system is thoroughly EMC, vibration and temperature tested according to vehicle standards to ensure it will perform in any situation.
Since the system is almost maintenance-free, high expenses and downtimes are significantly reduced for the operating company.

Special Liquid Extinguish Agent
TiboRex Absolute is a ready-to-use liquid special extinguishing agent without the addition of fluorochemicals for the highly effective extinguishing of solid fires (fire class A), liquids, non-polar hydrocarbons (fire class B) and edible fats and oils. The special formulation, whose main components are also used as food additives, guarantees exceptional extinguishing performance with unprecedented environmental protection.
MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
On which vehicles can the fire suppression system be applied?
The system is free of dangers and easy to install. It can be installed in any vehicle: Construction, mining, buses, mini-buses, vans, motorhomes, jeeps, racing cars, etc.
diesel, electric or gas
Where is the automatic detection and extinguishing system placed?
The thermal detectors are placed in the upper area of the engine, in order to detect unusual heat accumulations, through temperatures previously chosen, normally our Kit for buses comes with 180ºC in the detection. In areas such as Park compartment, another lower temperature can be chosen, such as 130ºC. The dispersion nozzles are aimed at critical areas of the engine, such as turbo, exhaust, etc. This distribution makes point-to-point efficacy during extinction.
Can I protect only one area or do I have to equip the entire vehicle?
The system is applied in critical areas: engine compartment and park. It can also be applied to wheels and interiors. This system is modular and can be applied wherever desired.
If there is a fire, will my equipment be damaged by the extinguishing agent?
TiboRex Absolute is a liquid extinguishing agent, in order to be safe and effective. Electrical components may be affected, but in any case they would be damaged by the onset of fire. All other equipment is never affected and subsequent cleaning is quick and easy. Other types of extinguishing agent (powder, gas, etc.) would not be as effective, as they can be expelled by the vehicle’s progress, not acting on fire.
Does it take a long time to install a system?
No. Depending on the size and layout of the compartment. In the case of a bus engine, the job is done in about 3 hours maximum. The system is easy to assemble and also to disassemble.
Can the system fire accidentally?
No. Our system is accurate and detects temperatures with precision. Depending on the location where the thermal sensors are placed, a specific temperature is chosen only when the compartment reaches that exact temperature.
Can’t the nozzles clog?
No. Our nozzles are designed to stay clean and unobstructed. Engine compartments are specifically designed, maintaining their effectiveness throughout their service life.
