Suitable fire protection is necessary in paint shops. Of course, existing fire-retardant systems (e.g. sprinkler systems on site) can easily be integrated into our painting systems. Object protection systems can also be connected to the painting systems from PREBAS, which can delete a limited area in the cabin. Fire-extinguishing systems can be implemented through cross-company cooperation. These combine the prescribed object protection system for electrostatically supported application systems with a room protection system required for fire protection. With this system, the extinguishing process is initiated manually using a hand trigger or automatically using infrared sensors using high-pressure atomized water mist. Further information on the system can be found in the publication Fire protection in laboratory paint shops (JOT 4.2015). The authors of the company LacTec in the technical article are now working for the company PREBAS.
