A vehicle fire suppression system is a fire suppression system installed on any type of vehicle. They are especially prevalent in the mobile heavy equipment segment. These systems are designed to protect mobile equipment from fire damage and related losses. These pre-engineered systems are designed per the parameters of the individual machine. Vehicle systems are broken down into these stages: detection, actuation, and distribution. The vehicle system has become a vital safety feature to several industries and is most commonly used in the mining, forestry, landfill, and mass transit industries.
