Top level of safety on board
Minimax has been one of the leading fire protection brands for more than 110 years. Ships and
offshore facilities such as oil platforms, cruise vessels , tanker or container ships require an above-
average level of safety due to the special conditions that prevail at sea. In most cases people cannot
quickly escape in the event of a fire to receive immediate help from the outside to fight a blaze.
Apart from many fire risks, panic and compromised maneuverability are further typical sources of
danger after a fire and must be taken into consideration when choosing an extinguishing system.
