Well-known motorcycle museum at Timmelsjoch completely burned out

February 2, 2021

Our range of fire load and smoke gas optimized monitors certified to DIN EN13501-1 increase the safety of living beings, buildings and inventory, without requiring an additional fire protection housing. 

What makes Fortec Integrated’s fire load and smoke gas optimized monitors so much safer?

Our BLO-Line (Blaze Load Optimised) monitors have been successfully tested and approved in fire protection class A1 and also enable installation in escape and rescue routes. To do this, we have taken a variety of measures to make our monitors as secure as possible. We use materials that have a low fire load and thus do not contribute to a fire that has developed outside the monitor. The special construction leaves hardly any free space inside the monitor for air that would support a fire. In addition, the monitor has a thermal fuse that automatically disconnects the monitor from the electricity in the event of extreme heat. An integrated extinguishing capsule is also available as a further safeguard, which is triggered in the event of a fire inside the monitor and suffocates a flare-up.

The BLO-Line monitors are available in sizes from 24″ to 65″, up to 55″ also with an integrated PCAP touch. The installation is possible in portrait or landscape orientation and do not require any additional fire protection housings. The BLO-Line monitors are offered with various integrated controls from a simple video card (PME) to an IoT solution with a Raspberry Compute module and a PC version with an Atom board from Intel. The monitors must be mounted flush with the wall but we also offer a version with a cable duct connection in case the connections cannot be placed directly behind the monitor. The extinguishing capsule mentioned above is optionally available for all BLO-Line monitors.

Let’s avoid such major fires as in the motorcycle museum in the future. Find out more about our fire load and smoke gas optimized monitors or send us an email directly to
