Firetrace’s transit and school bus fire protection solutions address the potential impacts of a fire by detecting and suppressing fire in a vehicle’s engine compartment, generator and electrical system.

Firetrace Systems utilize the proprietary Firetrace Detection Tubing (a Linear Pneumatic Heat Sensor), which detects a fire due to precise temperature sensitivity, allowing the systems to react quickly and effectively. This unique detection can be run through the smallest or most complex enclosures to ensure detection is always close at hand.

The company’s Indirect Release System pairs Firetrace Detection Tubing with copper tubing, stainless steel tubing or braided hose. When the polymer tubing bursts, suppressant is discharged through strategically placed nozzles within the protected enclosure.

Firetrace’s Detection Tubing tolerates vibration, dirt and extreme temperatures within a bus or transit vehicle. The system is failsafe and easy to install and maintain, and does not interfere with vehicle maintenance.

In addition, the systems are self-operated and require no power to activate, offering 24/7 protection. They can help to prevent the effects of a fire, including loss of passenger capacity, injuries due to a fi re or during passenger exiting of the bus, safety concerns and repair costs.

Firetrace fire protection solutions can be outfitted in virtually any bus, new or existing. They can be retrofitted into an existing fleet by maintenance personnel or authorized Firetrace distributors.
