Main display categories for INTERSCHUTZ Trade Fair
All methods of fire prevention rely on starving the fire of one or more of the three things it needs in order to keep going – heat, oxygen and combustible material. In that sense, nothing has changed since the days of Ancient Egypt.
What has changed is that modern firefighters are a lot more systematic in the way the go about their job. They don’t just eliminate the immediate danger; they keep a watchful eye on downstream risk and damage as well. Consequently, modern fire call-outs are a lot less spectacular than in the past. That’s because speed is not the only requirement; getting fires under control also calls for careful consideration – a measured approach that may sometimes appear slower and more deliberate, but which gets the job done more effectively.
Discover for yourself just how effective today’s fire-extinguishing technology can be at INTERSCHUTZ 2026 Trade Fair. In halls 13 and 27 and on the open-air site, fire protection specialists from over 40 nations will showcase their innovations and world-firsts in fire protection and firefighting technology.
