The project in brief

Together with our Austrian Partner FES Fire Expert Solution GmbH we have provided the fire protection for the working facility at Plasser & Theurer in Linz, Austria.

The Austrian family business Plasser & Theurer is a world leading manufacturer of track laying machines and provider of rail track maintenance.

The FIREKILL™ OH low pressure watermist system was installed in the facility’s canteen and offices.

Wolfgang Meindl, Fire Safety Officer at Plasser & Theurer:

“As this is an existing building, it was easier to integrate the pipe networks into the existing building structures by using the small pipe dimensions which a LPWM system brings with. The minimal water requirements of a low pressure watermist system meant that the existing water supply could be used.”

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

In order to meet the requirements of an effective fire protection system that would not interfere with the surroundings VID Fire-Kill’s OH system was chosen.

In addition, the OH system offers:

  • Easy installation
  • The low pressure watermist system is easy to retrofit
  • Low water requirements
  • Low power requirements


Some specifics

The Fire-Kill system’s nozzles are integrated into the structure making the system almost invisible.
