Preserving the invaluable

In general, damage caused by fire or extinguishing agents can be repaired, although at a cost. In the case of historical buildings and museums, however, this is not always the case. One of numerous tragic examples is Weimar’s Duchess Anna Amalia Library, which was destroyed by fire in 2004 with an estimated damage of $90,000,000. In such cases, the true extent of the loss is far greater than just the cost of restoring the fabric of the building. Every artifact that is lost represents an irreplaceable, and therefore priceless, piece of cultural heritage. Our advanced offering provides the appropriate protection.

Our promise

A specialized system for every location

Heritage buildings and museums often contain a wide variety of rooms, from historical exhibition rooms with high ornate ceilings to small, confined spaces such as storage vaults. Adequate fire protection in these buildings is best achieved with systems that are optimized to meet the specific requirements of each room.
