The issue of fire safety in railway rolling stock has gained in significance in recent years.
This can be attributed to new international regulations and directives on the one hand and the lessons learned from fires in trains on the other hand. The requirements for fire safety in railway rolling stock are complex. Locomotives, switch cabinets, passenger compartments and underfloor electrical systems all have to be considered.
What is required here is an integral fire safety concept, which incorporates rapid detection, immunity to false alarms and automatic fire fighting. And the highest priority must always be given to ensuring the safety of passengers and staff.
