HOW IT WORKS

THE ULTIMATE FIRE BARRIER

Vatra Fire Solution can be applied to establish thatch roofs as the solution poses, no threat to humans or the environment, and can be applied with minimal disruption to the daily activity. Vatra FS is a water-based solution comprising of several chemical substances that enable deep, structural fire-prevention by means of impregnation of wood, wood products and some other natural materials (thatch roofs, cardboard, cotton, wool, flax, cement, gypsum etc.).

CASE STUDIES

VATRA FIRE SOLUTION AT WORK

The Vatra fire solution extinguishes fire quickly and efficiently. By means of deep structural impregnation, the Vatra fire solution prevents combustion in thatch, cardboard, wood products and open flame burning while providing long-lasting suppression of all forms of dust.

Eclectic beach retreat at Barra beach in Mozambique was the ideal setting to make use of the fire retarding qualities of the Vatra fire solution.

This newly built thatched-roof building in Mpumalanga was sprayed with Vatra Fire Solution to protect it from veld fires.

The Vatra fire solution are used to quench, localise and prevent “A” class fires, like thatch roof fires, forest fires, industrial fires, deep structural fire-prevention with impregnation of wood and wood products as well as all types of cardboard.

Vatra fire products are odourless and stable in all temperatures and all climates

The Vatra fire solution extinguishes fire quickly and efficiently.

By means of deep structural impregnation, the Vatra fire solution prevents combustion in thatch, cardboard, wood products and open flame burning while providing long-lasting suppression of all forms of dust.

Vatra products are 100% Organic & Eco–friendly and do not pollute any natural resources like water, air or land.

The Vatra Fire Product is a water-based solution comprising of several chemical substances that enable deep, structural fire-prevention by means of impregnation of wood, wood products and some other natural materials (thatch, cardboard, cotton, wool, flax, cement, gypsum etc.).

Deep, structural fire prevention impregnation of the subject materials is obtained by the active substances penetrating the entire structure and taking up the space of air (oxygen) so that its effect is not just superficial but also core deep.

The retarding effect in the combustion of materials treated with the Vatra Fire Solution is based on two effects:

  • The introduced heat that could cause combustion of material is used primarily for transforming the chemically bound water into a gaseous state, and
  • Water evaporation significantly decelerates the flow of water to the material surface. The result of these processes is such that the material caught up in flames does not burn.

The Vatra Fire Solution has several advantages compared to other fire extinguishing agents (CO₂, foam and water).

Its primary use is in extinguishing class "A" fires, localizing the existing fires, namely, preventing its further spreading as well as preventing of bursting out of the fire which leads to forming of a fire safety zone.

Treatment of natural materials such as sawdust, the so-called wooden "chips" and remains of numerous agricultures (e.g. wheat and other grains as well as industrial cultures after harvest and picking) may be used for efficient fighting against class "B" fire (fires from oil and oil derivatives, alcohol as well as fire from numerous chemical products), and at the same time as a component in the production of some types of heat insulation plates.

  • It acts as a combustion retardant so that the combustible natural materials become incombustible
  • Wood and wood products, all types of cardboard, textile products made of natural materials – cotton, wool, flax etc. become totally incombustible by fire prevention impregnation

  • Insurance approved
  • 100% Organic fire solution;
  • Food grade chemicals used to produce products;
  • New constructions can be pre-treated for optimal protection;

  • Eco-friendly non-toxic;
  • No flame / no smoke.

The best approach to fireproof a new thatch roof on a house or a lodge that is in the construction phase would be to use timber and grass that has been pre-treated with a fire-retardant spray like the Vatra Fire Solution for optimal fire protection.

For established thatched roofs the solution would be to spray the fire-retardant product onto the dry thatched roof as the solution poses, no threat to humans or the environment, and can be applied with minimal disruption to daily activity.

The areas covered with the Vatra Fire Solution are protected over a longer period of time, depending on the climatic conditions of the treated area.

By means of deep structural impregnation, the water-based fire retardant from Vatra fire solution prevents combustion in thatched roofs and open flame burning while providing long-lasting suppression of all forms of dust.

The Vatra fire solution extinguishes fire quickly and efficiently.

Areas covered with the Vatra Fire Solution are protected over a longer period of time, depending on the climatic conditions of the treated area. In areas where rain rarely falls and periods of drought prevail, for example, in Africa, Australia, some areas of the USA the fire protection can last several years. Where the rains are more frequent and heavier, the protection lasts from one to three seasons.

A Thatched roof has a certain charm to it with great insulation properties and can be found across the landscape in South Africa. But with the charm also comes a responsibility to observe appropriate safety measures so the roof does not become a fire hazard.

Thatched roof can become a fire hazard with things like electrical faults, lightning, arson and chimney’s that’s not installed correctly.

One of the best precautions you can take is to treat your thatched roof with the Vatra fire solution to extinguishes fire quickly and efficiently.

Treated thatch structures will repel flames and become virtually impenetrable to fire. Spraying a thatch structure with Vatra solution also forms an effective barrier against fire. Vatra products are 100% organic & ECO – friendly and do not pollute any natural resources like water, air or land.

The Vatra Fire Retardant Spray is a water-based solution comprising of several chemical substances that enable deep, structural fire prevention by means of impregnation of wood, wood products and some other natural materials (thatch, cardboard, cotton, wool, flax, cement, gypsum etc.).

In areas where rain rarely falls and periods of drought prevail, for example, in Africa, Australia, some areas of the USA the fire protection can last several years. Where the rains are more frequent and heavier, the protection lasts from one to three seasons.

If the treated area is covered with peat, for example, the treated area is protected from the occurrence of the so-called deep smouldering fires for at least 5 years.

The Vatra Fire Solution penetrates quickly into the deeper layers of peat, to the fire epicentre, extinguishes these fires, and at the same time performs fire-protection impregnation of the peat. This way it prevents the appearance of so-called residual (subsequent) fires.

It extinguishes class "A" fires much faster and more efficiently than water, whereas other agents used for extinguishing these fires are less efficient and from an environmental aspect environmentally unacceptable.

The Vatra Fire Solution is the most efficient fire extinguishing agent for rubber which, otherwise, represents one of the most difficult fires to extinguish. One of the very important things about this agent is that it is one of the rare agents that can quickly and efficiently extinguish fires caused by lignite coal dust, especially at the facilities for processing coal (sorting and drying facilities).
