Speaker Bios | Company Profile

The ignition and spread of fire in rail applications is one of the most important considerations for rolling stock designers and manufactures. For this reason, rail engineers and technologist are always actively looking for materials that are flame-retardant in nature, but also able to reduce the spread of flames when ignition has already taken place.

Authored in partnership with the leading global manufacturers, this series of individual, content lead – technical webinars, takes an in-depth look at the biggest challenges regarding fire protection and safety in rolling stock today.

The sessions provide insight and technical information on the latest fire safety and fire protection materials and systems available for all types of trains; including underground, metro transport services and rail freight, providing operators and manufacturers with the most comprehensive coverage of material and technology innovations, fire prevention, fire detection, fire suppression and fire alarm systems for all types of rail transport.

The development of the updated standards has brought significant changes and challenges to rolling stock, across train builders, operators, certification bodies, regulators and component manufacturers. A core part of fire safety rests on the use of materials that limit fire development and also produce low levels of smoke and toxic fumes in the event of a fire. WeRail Group has established a worldwide leading position in delivering events for the rail sector, combining its entire know-how especially in the area of rolling stock technology to curate a series of webinars, specifically for our 60,000 rail members for whom fire protection is their key challenge and responsibility.

All of our webinars are free to attend, presented live and are interactive.

If you can not make a session at the scheduled time, register anyway and we’ll send you a link to access On-Demand!

Aero X

HEADLINE SPONSOR 2021

Aero-X is the European master distributor of Stat-X® aerosol fire extinguishing systems as well as the European distributor of Thermac® heat sensors. Aero-X also represents various other innovative fire protection products like for example Protectowire® linear heat detection. Together with a whole range of own developments, these products enable Aero-X to design and implement innovative, effective, expedient, economical and environmentally friendly fire protection solutions for you and your infrastructure. 

So your steam locomotives are the only things giving off sparks

What’s at the top of your list of priorities? Optimizing your passengers’ safety while minimizing service disruptions? Same here.

You bear a hefty amount of responsibility. After all, millions of passengers relay on the safety of your trains day in, day out. At the same time, customers are becoming less tolerant of service disruptions and the delays that go with them. We’d love to share the burden with you. Our space-saving fire protection systems, namely, our early-warning systems and fully automated extinguishers, play a key role in helping you get your passengers to their destination – more safely and more reliably. 

Make your safety a reality

With 20 years of experience in fire protection, Aero-X develops the fire protection systems in Switzerland following world-leading standards, working with partners all around the globe. All the while, your personal safety requirements are at the heart of what we do: for your safety Aero-X goes the extra mile.

What price can you put on safety? Unfortunately, you only get to know the answer to this question when you need to cover the costs in the wake of an accident. If you’re lucky, you’ll only have lost goods and infrastructure: they can be replaced, albeit at major expense. However, depending on how fate rolls the dice, people could suffer irreparable damage to their health, or even lose their lives.

More than 20 years of experience in fire protection consulting, technology development, training and assembly has taught us one thing: the more you do to keep things safe ahead of time, the less it costs in the long run! That’s where Aero-X comes into play. Our goal is to prevent fires from being able to spread in the first place. We want to stop fires in their tracks, as it were, without putting infrastructure or even human lives at risk (or worse). From the initial consultation to installation and training, right through to maintenance, Aero-X is your one-stop shop.

Let’s not just talk about your safety. Let’s make safety a reality.
