Together with our Swiss distributor Contrafeu we have provided the fire protection for St Maurice Church in Naters, Switzerland.
The gothic church, which dates back to the 11th century, is an important landmark for the community of Naters. The church council requested a fire protection solution for their church that would cause minimal damage to the structure in case of activation.
Churches and church towers are difficult to secure against fires. The main risks are the very poor accessibility especially in the upper parts of the towers, the old, dry, and mostly wooden tower construction and the lack of sufficient water for extinguishing purposes.
