Increasingly stringent environmental standards are being placed on today’s buses in terms of noise and emissions. This means that engine spaces are increasingly enclosed and the installed equipment such as silencers and particulate filters have worse cooling, increasing the risk of fire.
The guidelines stipulate that buses and coaches with a total weight of 10 tons or above, delivered after January 1 of 2004 be equipped with a fire suppression system in the engine compartment. This is a prerequisite for taking out fire insurance.
Guidelines SBF 128 regulate the design and technical specifications of the systems and further states the requirements of the companies that supply and install them.
