JACTONE PAFSS® BUS AND COACH FIRE SUPPRESSION

UNECE 107 CERTIFIED BUS AND COACH FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS



PAFSS Bus and Coach Fire Suppression System

WHY PAFSS®

PAFSS bus and coach systems provide protection inside the engine compartment and discharge at the heart of the fire, extinguishing quickly and preventing the fire from spreading.

These self contained pneumatic systems require no external energy or power supply. Upon flame impingement or heat, the pressurised detection tubing will burst and activate the cylinder valve to open and release the extinguishing agent.

The Jactone PAFSS Bus and Coach range has been specifically designed to protect engine compartments in accordance with UNECE Regulation No.107.

 E-marked Fire Suppression System UNECE Reg. No. 107

The Problem

Historically the installation of bus and coach fire suppression has not been a widespread mandatory requirement. The inclusion of such systems has been at the discretion of individual local government transport bodies and vehicle operators. This has now changed, as required by a countries membership of The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). The UNECE sets out norms, standards and conventions, including matters relating to safety of public transport.

With the introduction of The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Regulation No.107, it has become mandatory on certain new classes of bus and coach to install a fire suppression system complying with the requirements of UNECE Regulation No.107.

The PAFSS Solution

Our system offers peace of mind for customers looking to specify a fully tested, approved and certified solution for fire protection of buses and coaches.

Jactone PAFSS bus and coach fixed fire suppression systems have been specifically designed to protect buses and coaches in accordance with the latest editions of UNECE Regulation No.107. The latest editions of UNECE Regulation No.107 include a fire testing procedure for fire suppression systems for engine compartments of buses and coaches with four distinct fire extinguishing tests.

PAFSS bus and coach systems provide protection inside the engine compartment and discharge at the heart of the fire, extinguishing quickly and preventing the fire from spreading. This can significantly reduce the risk of injury to personnel and vehicle losses, not to mention the operational disruption.
