Many of today’s investments in the Timber industry aim at raising process automation and increasing production capacity. This leads to a decrease of personnel at the plants. Experience and research* show that the key to minimising production downtime and damage due to fire and dust explosions is the detection and elimination of potential ignition sources, i.e. sparks, fires, and hot particles.

The risk for fire and dust explosions in the Timber industry has always been very high. Unfortunately, as production increases, so does the risk for fire and dust explosions.

Wood Panel

The wood panel industry has been experiencing problems with fire and dust explosions for many years. Up to today, these problems haven’t been eliminated. And unfortunately, as production increases, so does the risk for fire and explosions.

Timber Processing

The need to increase productivity has led to the development of new machinery with higher feeding speeds. These higher speeds automatically increase the risk for a fire or explosion due to for example friction. The demand for production safety and fire prevention in the woodworking industry has therefore increased. By tailoring a fire protection system…
