Fire protection for aviation

With KIDDE, safety knows no bounds. And no gravitational force either, because we develop and produce complete fire systems for civil and military aircraft.

Count on the detection and extinguishing method balanced and optimised for the respective aircraft type with proven quality in over 100,000 cases.

Kidde offers you varying options to protect your aircraft effectively against fire. See for yourself:

Engines and auxiliary engines are equipped with fire alarm and permanently installed fire-extinguishing systems for their protection.

Landing gear wheels are monitored by overheating/fire alarm systems, in order to inform pilots to take corresponding actions.

The smoke alarm systems installed in the cargo hold detect fires during their starting phase and report them to the cockpit. The pilots are then able to initiate corresponding countermeasures in that they trigger the permanently installed extinguishing system.

In the avionic segments, smoke detector systems are installed in order to detect fires during their initial phase.

Continuous heat-sensitive detectors monitor hot gas lines, which convey bleed air from the engines and auxiliary engines to the air-conditioning systems.

For the safety of washrooms, smoke detectors and automatic extinguishers are installed.

Manual fire extinguishers are installed in the cockpit, cabin area and accessible cargo holds, in order to fight fire.
