Fires in on-road vehicles such as a bus or truck presents a great deal of danger to the operator and passengers, not only from the fire itself, but also from the potential danger of exiting the vehicle in traffic.
Firetrace systems are ideal for the rigorous environments in these vehicles, providing the durability needed for to survive the constant movement of the vehicle, combined with the ever-changing environmental conditions – temperature extremes, dirt, vibration all combine to create a challenge many fire suppression systems cannot meet.
Firetrace manufactures reliable, cost-effective, automatic fire detection and suppression systems that can be installed in virtually any “micro-environment” or small enclosed space where critical assets are located or where an increased risk of fire could be mitigated by an automatic fire suppression system. Firetrace systems are completely self-contained, require no electrical power, and are easy to install and maintain – think of them as automatic fire extinguishers. Firetrace advanced fire protection systems are compatible with most commercially available fire-suppressing clean agents, foams, and dry chemicals and are the only systems of their type to carry major listings and approvals from UL, ULC, CE, FM, and more than 20 other international agencies.

Firetrace Aerospace adapts the technologies of Firetrace for the military and aerospace sectors.
- Targeted suppression that attacks the fire where it starts
- Detecting the fire at its source interrupts the fire at its earliest stages, usually well before other systems can react
- Lower cost and more environmentally friendly due to its ability to use smaller equipment and less total suppressant
- Enhanced people safety by operating inside the hazard space, not where people are present
- Does not require electrical sources, battery backups or control panels
- Better suppression capability since systems operate outside people-occupied spaces
- Much higher system reliability due to fewer components, lack of wiring and power sources and simple operating principles
- Simple to maintain with minimal training
