Fire Protection Solutions for Rolling Stock

The svt Group offers high performance fire protection for rail vehicles – regardless of speed. We cater to both long-distance and local rail traffic and, of course, also focus on innovative high-speed trains. All areas requiring protection are carefully covered by high-performance materials. Here again, svt’s large product portfolio is a clear strength of the Group.
In addition to fire protection coatings for the underbody of trains, the svt Group also offers high-quality solutions for the passenger traffic sector as well as solutions for safe cable management.

Our systems are already installed in more than one hundred different train types and not only serve fire protection but also meet many other requirements such as resistance to all environmental influences such as temperature, UV radiation and humidity, as well as resistance to many chemicals and mechanical influences from outside. All these solutions have grown from many years of experience as well as from the close and trusting cooperation maintained with our customers. Thanks to svt’s in-house research and development activities, which are complemented by exploratory fire tests, the svt Group of Companies has made a name for itself as a reliable problem solver and flexible partner.

FLAMMADUR® TE C – Coating & Fire Test

FLAMMADUR® TE C is a new two-component PU-based fire protection coating specially developed for Rolling Stock and designed to withstand the highest climatic and mechanical loads. The video shows how FLAMMADUR® TE C is applied in very high layer thicknesses in just one work step and how it impressively demonstrates its performance in a large-scale fire test. In order to create the most realistic conditions possible, for this final test of development the floor structure of a train was simulated with a 18mm thick sheet of plywood.
