Plank type flooring for fire suppression
Weland has developed a special plank type flooring for fire suppression. Plank Type Flooring has been developed for fire extinguishing pits in transformer substation etc. The flooring is easy to install and remove during repair and maintenance work.
In the event of a fire, where burning transformer oil escapes into the transformer building, the oil runs through the perforations in the flooring and is smothered due to the lack of oxygen in the pit below the flooring. It takes just approx. 5-15 seconds before the fire is completely extinguished.
Tests have been carried out in cooperation with the rescue services in Gislaved.
Plank type flooring has many uses, read more about plank type flooring.
The oil is tipped out over the transformer pit.
The flames are extinguished after 5 seconds.
After 8 seconds, the fire under the grating is extinguished.
