Hangars

AIRCRAFT HANGARS

Non-Chemical Alternative to AFFF Fire Protection Systems

  • NEW BUILD
  • RETROFIT

HANGAR TYPE

The Safespill floor for hangars contains and removes ignitable liquid spills before developing into a pool fire. When a spill occurs, the liquid flows into the hollow floor profiles through specially machined drain holes on the top surface. The internal flushing and suction system then pumps the contained liquid into external containment.

BENEFITS

  • Solution for new build and existing retrofit (military and commercial) hangars
  • FM approved, under standard 6090
  • PFAS-free with no environmental risk because it is a 100% closed system, using only water
  • No risk of accidental foam discharges, potentially destroying aircraft components and avionics
  • 5-year warranty with optional renewal

INSTALLATION

  • On average 5-10 days, dependent on aircraft type, quantity, and hangar type
  • Minimized downtime
  • No need to cut or modify existing concrete substrate

FEATURES

  • Safespill floor is only needed to cover, on average, 65% of the hangar
  • Safespill floors account for a spill from the edge of an aircraft fuel tank or engine (lateral discharge)

  • Integrated stainless steel FOD screen
  • fod-screen

Power Requirements

  • Electrically powered centrifugal pumps to remove the spilled liquid
  • 480V for electrically powered centrifugal pumps
  • 120V for the control panel

Water Requirements

(Not Fire Water)

  • 150 GPM @ 60 PSI for flushing water
  • Municipal water can be utilized
  • A booster pump can increase the pressure of the waterline to meet requirements

Dropped Wing Tank Simulation

This test simulates what happens when a wing tank full of JP-4 drops and instantly releases ignited jet fuel onto the Safespill floor. Fuel is JP-4 equivalent, consisting of
66% kerosene and 33% gasoline.
