Our highest priority:

Minimize the risks for your people, process and company.

There is an increase in automation and efficiency in production around the world. The combination of less people overseeing the processes and the risk of machinery running hot constitutes an increased danger. Every year, fires occur in numerous shredders worldwide.


  • Risk to employees
  • Property damage and production downtime
  • Fire spreading into other areas
