The impact of a fire in a school bus is wide ranging.  We have seen numerous reports just recently of fires occurring on school buses.  Issues can include passenger safety, costs to schools, loss of passenger capacity, disruption of traffic and public relation issues.  Bus fire suppression systems ensure vehicles and buses remain safe.

Firetrace systems offer a unique approach to fire protection to many of fire prone areas of the buses.  These systems detect fire using the proprietary red Firetrace Detection Tubing (FDT).  This heat sensitive polymer tubing is pressurized and reacts to the heat and radiant energy of a fire by bursting, thus activating the fire suppression system.

Firetrace detection tubing is ideal for fire detection in buses as it tolerates the vibration, dirt and temperature extremes.  These systems are pneumatically operated therefore require no power from the vehicle to operate and do not place additional strain on the vehicle’s electrical system.
