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.

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

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.

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!
