Fire protection

Private as well as commercial buildings are equipped with numerous electrical devices and systems, so that a short circuit or other negligent behavior as a cause of fire can never be completely ruled out.
Most fire victims never come into direct contact with the fire, but instead suffocate with smoke gases.

To protect life and limb, numerous measures are therefore taken to reduce these dangers through preventive fire protection, to automatically extinguish fires as quickly as possible (sprinkler systems) and to enable people to be rescued from a burning building through technical and organizational measures (escape routes) .
