Extinguishing water supply
Despite the increasingly modern extinguishing agents and technologies available, water remains the most commonly used agent to extinguish fire. Water is also suitable for fighting incipient and large-scale fires. One condition for both cases is, of course, a sufficient extinguishing water supply. In addition to cast iron pipes, ACCURO also specialises in using FM-tested underground polyethylene pipes (PE, PEHD).
Polyethylene is distinguished by durability and a high resistance to environmental influences. The main water supply pipe essentially serves as the main artery for every extinguishing system. A long material service life and a certain flexibility against mechanical influences are extremely important in order to ensure a reliable fire protection concept.
The extinguishing outlets connected to the main pipe are largely located above-ground and can be exchanged, maintained and renewed relatively easily. However, if a digger is required to exchange a leaking main pipe, this can be very expensive and can particularly cause disruption to business and transport processes. The polyethylene pipeline system therefore has many advantages. A simple and uncomplicated laying procedure is just one such advantage.
Advantages of the polyethylene pipeline system:
- Flexibility and therefore lower risk of a leakage
- Corrosion resistance
- A service life of more than 50 years can not be surpassed by any other material
