In modern parking garages, the number of electric charging stations and parked e-cars, e-scooters and e-bikes is constantly increasing. However, fires involving electric vehicles are more complicated than those involving conventionally powered vehicles. The use of high-pressure water mist (HPWM) systems enables highly efficient and safe fire protection in this case as well.
In general, a battery fire can’t be extinguished. For the emergency services, the task in the event of an e-car fire is usually to move the object out of the garage into the open air and cool it there, for example in a water tank. For the parking garage operators, in the event of a fire the primary goal is to protect the supporting building structure and to contain the fire until the emergency services arrive and to create ambient conditions that allow them to proceed.
