BUSShield - State-of-the-art fire protection for the millions who use public transportation every day

Bus fires pose an exceptionally catastrophic threat of injury, death and loss of property. Bus fire events often originate in either the engine or battery compartments, both of which are usually out of the driver’s line-of-sight. The longer the time that elapses between a fire breaking out and its detection, the greater the risk of disastrous results.

BUSShield is a comprehensive, cost-effective and reliable bus fire protection system comprised of:       

1. Engine Compartment Protection Module:

· The unique and rugged DELTA Rate-of-Rise pneumatic-electronic linear fire & heat detector (see above)

· Suppression agent & nozzles

2. Battery Compartment Protection Module:

· Fire detector

· Suppression agent & nozzles

3. Command & Control Unit:

· Mounted on the dashboard, the command & control’s indicators automatically warn the driver in real-time of a detected fire threat or event in the engine compartment.

The key benefits of BUSShield are:

· Super-fast DELTA detection: Minimizing the risk of damage and injuries

· Real-time driver alerts: The system immediately alerts the driver to a threat or an event long before it is in his/her line-of-sight

· Efficient extinguishing action: Utilizes dry powder to suppress all classes of fires and prevent re-ignition. The extinguishing system can be activated manually in the rare case of a failure in the automatic activation system.

· Easy installation and low maintenance: The Delta’s unique, flexible stainless steel linear sensor tubing can be easily routed to monitor long distances or confined spaces. The Delta’s Built-in-Test capability virtually eliminates the need for routine maintenance, alerting automatically to degraded performance.

· Reliable and robust: Low risk of false alarms; high tolerance to harsh conditions such as grime, dirt, dust, etc.

· Documentation: Fire events, faults and signal peaks are stored in the Delta’s non-volatile memory and can be downloaded at any time through a USB interface.

BUSShield is certified to the following standards:

· IS0 9001:2008 - Quality assurance certification

KITCHENShield - State-of-the-art fire protection for industrial kitchens

The KITCHENShield is an automatic, pre-engineered WCK kitchen fire suppression system that protects the entire kitchen area - including ducts and plenums - as well as all cooking appliances, whether electric or gas-operated. KITCHENShield is suitable for both small and large industrial kitchens in hotels, restaurants, hospitals and other public institutions. 

The KITCHENShield is comprised of the following components:

1. Nozzles are arranged to provide maximum coverage for the extinguishing agents.

2. Heat detectors are installed within the plenum and connected to each other and to the extinguishing system by a continuous cable under tension. Each detector has a fusible link that will separate at a predetermined detected temperature, relieving tension on the cable and activating the extinguishing system.

3. Specially formulated extinguishing agents are stored under pressure. During a fire they are automatically discharged and distributed over all protected areas. KITCHENShield also interrupts the supply of gas or electricity.

4. Manual pull station.

The key benefits of KITCHENShield are:

· Fast detection: Quickly detects fires to minimize damage and injuries

· Stainless-steel friendly: The extinguishing liquid has a low acid level (pH<9) and thus protects stainless steel surfaces

· Dual action: Simultaneously extinguishes the fire and interrupts the energy supply

· Environmentally friendly: Water-based extinguishing agent that is not harmful to the environment

· Customized solution: The system’s modular design facilitates easy on-site adaptation to meet each kitchen’s unique and diverse requirements.

· Fast, flexible installation: The flexibly mounted discharge piping, manual pull station and gas valve makes it easy to accommodate a wide range of kitchen configurations and requirements

· Mechanical system: Does not require N2 or CO2 cylinder to operate the dry chemical agent

· Multiple cylinders: Largest amount of cylinders (up to 6 units) and longest distance between them than any other system on the market

The KITCHENShield is certified according to the following standards:

· UL-300 Listed: Fire Extinguishing Systems for Protection of Restaurant Cooking Areas

· CE 0029 Mark

· ANSI NFPA Standard 17A: Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems

· ANSI NFPA Standard 96: Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations.

MINEShield - The ultimate fire protection solutions for the harsh conditions of mining applications

When you combine 24/7, heavy-duty, non-stop working with heat, flammable liquids, turbo chargers, exhaust fumes and electrical components, the risk of fire in mines is exceptionally high. Conveyor belts - with their continuous friction, high working temperatures and static electricity build-up - represent a particularly high fire risk, as they might spread furious fire over long distances.Fires grow rapidly in scope and intensity; hence the elapsed time between the onset of a fire and its detection is critical!

MINEShield - The ultimate fire protection

At the heart of Lehavot’s MINEShield solutions is Delta - our unique pneumatic-electronic linear fire & heat detector that analyses the Rate of temperature Rise (RoR) within monitored regions, providing real-time alerts to fire or overheating and, where appropriate, automatically triggering the suppression system.

MINEShield features and benefits include:

· Fast Delta Detection – Rapidly detects fires, minimizing damage and injuries.

· Extremely Reliable – Low rate of false alarms.
