Fire protection is critical to the safety of train travel and FOGTEC is the world market leader in active fire protection solutions in rolling stock applications. They have nearly 20,000 systems in operation around the world for detecting and fighting fire on trains. In the U.S they are now supplying this technology for the new LA Metro cars, using a water mist system for the first time in U.S. rolling stock.

With the evolution of monorail there are new possibilities for implementing it into an integrated network as a cost-effective solution.
