Gas detection systems designed for your specific needs

From small and simple to big detection systems with complex settings

Each fixed fire and gas detection system is individual – whether you need a simple alarm system for a manageable area or a tailor-made solution with highly complex settings. Whether you have many or only a view measuring points. Whether you need to create a completely new system or whether you have to integrate the solution into existing infrastructure. Discover this brief explanation of different requirements for a fixed gas detection system and see how our experts support you in every step of the process.

Better engineering starts with the right questions

Your gas detection application is specific to your site and company conditions, potential hazardous areas and legal regulations. A dedicated team of engineers and technicians from various disciplines will work out a solution proposal that best meets your specific requirements. The projects are implemented according to the agreed schedule by a team of specialists in the fields of planning, installation and commissioning.

Experts for safety workers walking below tanks at gas plant

We deliver complete end-to-end consulting – from design to equipment specification and installation guidance. Our specialist teams have full in-house capability to assess hazardous environments in any application. They use proactive analysis including advanced technology, such as flame/gas mapping and custom wireless solutions to develop a suitable solution for your specific needs.

Custom solutions for each application

The integration of gas measuring and warning systems into existing infrastructures requires complex planning and flexible products. Chemical/physical data, technical potential, legal requirements and of course, the operational processes of your application need to be aligned. This ensures that the correct devices and systems are provided for use within specific applications.
