Fire Protection Will Once Again Occupy Two Halls

Messe Essen GmbH, Norbertstraße, 45001 Essen, Germany

On September 23 – 26, 2014, Messe Essen will once again become the global marketplace for civil security. At the premier global fair Security Essen, more than 1,000 international exhibitors will show the innovations in the sector – in this respect, no fewer than two halls (1 and 7) will be dedicated to fire protection. There, 140 exhibitors will present innovations for constructional, operational and installation technology fire protection – from protective clothing via intelligent web-based alarm systems right up to control room planning and equipment.

Internet-based fire protection solutions constitute an increasing trend in 2014. For example, there are smoke alarms which, in the event of a fire, can make an automatic connection with the Internet, dispatch status reports by SMS or e-mail in real time and guide the emergency services directly to the seat of the fire using online maps. Alarm and evacuation systems which, in emergencies, send messages to all the computer workplaces in the company or intelligent holders for fire extinguishers which indicate the nearest appliance acoustically and optically were developed for operational fire protection.

Security Essen Will Show All the Facets of Fire Protection

Special solutions for industry will also be represented at Security Essen. These will include early fire recognition systems for the storage of self-inflammable materials such as paper, waste or incendiary matter as well as fire detectors for the oil, gas and chemical industries which can recognise hazards even in extreme conditions. Special installations for tunnels which can bridge long distances reliably will also be on display in Essen.

Fire Protection Theme Day
Will Provide Entertainment and Information with Live Events

The comprehensive range available at the fair will be rounded off with live demonstrations on the Fire Protection Theme Day. On September 25, exhibitors will demonstrate, amongst other highlights, the utilisation of new aerosol extinguishing systems, fire suppression installations against beginning explosions as well as new fog systems for the non-destructive simulation of tunnel and large-scale fires.

As the premier global fair for security technology and fire protection, Security Essen has strong partners by its side. For example, the exhibition section will be supported by Feuerwehr Essen (“Essen Fire Service”), Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Leiter der Berufsfeuerwehren (AGBF – “Working Group of the Managers of Professional Fire Services”), Werkfeuerwehrverband Deutschland e. V. (“Works Fire Service Association of Germany”) as well as bvfa – Bundesverband Technischer Brandschutz e. V. (“Federal Association of Technical Fire Protection”). On a cooperative booth in Hall 1, bvfa will present itself with eight other companies.
