Fire company passes SSL tests

Sunday, 31 August, 2003

One of the world's leading providers of fire protection solutions, Wormald, has become the first company to attain a Scientific Service Laboratory (SSL) approval listing for its heavy vehicle fire suppression systems.

Wormald's heavy vehicle foam waterspray and dry chemical systems, used extensively in mining, forestry, construction and manufacturing industries, passed stringent tests conducted by an independent government agency and surpassed the SSL appraisal specification requirements.

Recognised by the insurance industry, an SSL approval listing is granted to a company only after their system has been through rigorous testing on all components, materials and various combinations of full scale test fires.

The environmental component tests, normally applied to railway locomotives and military vehicles, set a benchmark that fire suppression systems must pass if they are able to promptly and effectively extinguish any fire on a vehicle before personal or significant property damage is incurred.
