Safe processing even at high temperatures

With a fire protection system from Nextech, you can effectively prevent and combat fires and explosions with detection and extinguishing tailored to the metal industry.

We offer a comprehensive product portfolio of fire and explosion protection components from a number of Europe’s leading manufacturers in the field. All our products are tested and approved to the highest safety standards by Europe’s leading testing bodies, including VdS and TÜV. Our explosion protection systems are also ATEX approved.

Tailored system provides optimum protection for the metal industry

We have many years of experience in fire and explosion protection for the metal industry, and distribute some of the world’s most advanced protection systems. In each case, we carry out a comprehensive risk assessment of all potential risk areas in the company and then draw up a safety plan specifying the components – spark detectors, infrared/thermal monitoring, smoke detectors, spark and fire extinguishing components, explosion suppression systems, etc. – that will provide maximum protection in the plant in question. Components are selected based on the condition of each risk zone – e.g. bright/dark, dust level, temperature level, optimal extinguishing agent, etc.

The system automatically identifies and extinguishes ignition sources – our products include GreCon’s spark detection and extinguishing systems, which in many cases will eliminate 99% of all ignition sources before they develop into a fire or explosion, as well as advanced thermal monitoring that can identify e.g. transport or storage units in the operations that are at risk of overheating.

Specific risk areas that should be safeguarded include:

  • Filters at foundries or smelters
  • Chemical processes
  • Ore crushers
  • Welding processes
  • Presses
  • Extraction and ventilation systems
  • Grinders

A fire and explosion protection solution from Nextech includes:


  • The world’s fastest spark detection and extinguishing system
  • Advanced fire detection with rapid alarm and extinguishing
  • Rapid extinguishing with targeted extinguishing agent (e.g. gas, foam, water or diversion of material flow via dampers)
  • Ability to manually initiate extinguishing as required
  • Effective venting or suppression of explosions
  • Accurate detection of each incident of sparks, embers or other ignition sources so that risk areas can be identified and remediated
  • Remote visual monitoring of areas at risk of overheating.

Achieve maximum safety with a fire and explosion protection system containing:

Fire detection

Automatic fire detection ensures that a fire is detected as soon as it starts, so that extinguishing can be initiated as soon as possible. We offer a range of different types of fire detection, so in each case we use the type of component that provides the most effective detection in the particular context. 

Our product portfolio includes smoke detectors, spark detectors, IR monitoring and temperature monitoring.

Spark extinguishing

Effective spark extinguishing ensures that ignition sources – e.g. sparks from foreign objects in processing machines, conveyor belts or ventilation systems – are extinguished as soon as they occur, preventing fires and explosions.

We offer a range of the world’s leading spark detection and extinguishing products, and in each case can put together a solution with the types of detectors and extinguishing agents that provide maximum safety in the given processing plant.

Explosion protection

Effective explosion protection consists of both prevention (e.g. through spark detection and extinguishing and thermal monitoring to detect overheated components) and mitigation measures such as dampers to relieve the force and flames of an explosion, or extinguishing to contain the explosion and prevent the spread of flames to other parts of the plant.

Our product portfolio includes a range of detectors, venting components and extinguishing agents tailored to effectively and quickly prevent and combat explosions in e.g. silos and transport systems.

All our products are ATEX approved.

IR monitoring

Thermal monitoring via infrared cameras enables effective prevention of fires even before they can be detected by the naked eye or smoke detectors. Thermal monitoring is particularly suitable for the metal industry, as the camera data is processed by advanced software and compared with the normal temperature fluctuations for the area in question, and extinguishing and alarms are triggered immediately in the event of particularly rapid or particularly high temperature fluctuations, preventing overheating and melting of e.g. casting ladles. 

The cameras are specially designed for use in challenging environments, so their performance and reliability are not affected by factors such as dust or dirt.

Inert gas fire extinguishing is used for effective fire protection of items such as server racks, electrical panels or PLC control cabinets. 

We offer an effective and reliable gas-based fire extinguishing solution based on advanced rocket technology developed under the European Space Agency, ESA, which means that the solution meets this industry’s high safety and reliability requirements. 

Advanced detection initiates extinguishing with inert gas inside the cabinet that is being protected, displacing the oxygen and smothering the fire within seconds, thereby preventing secondary damage from heat and smoke development.

Fire protection for vehicles

Automatic fire protection of vehicles such as trucks or other heavy vehicles ensures that engine fires do not spread to other vehicles or to warehouses with combustible materials. 

We offer one of the world’s most effective fire protection systems for vehicles – German manufacturer protecfire’s detexline system, which is installed in the engine compartment of the vehicle itself and automatically detects and extinguishes emerging engine fires.

Fire protection for kitchens/canteens

With rapid automatic fire protection of the cooker and deep fryer in the canteen kitchen, fires in overheated cooking fat are detected and extinguished quickly and efficiently. 

We offer a specially developed fire protection system for kitchens from the German manufacturer protecfire, which detects and extinguishes emerging fires ultra-fast and efficiently. The system’s extinguishing agent also forms a protective seal afterwards, preventing reignition.
