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.
