Fire safety
Better safe than sorry

Fire protection is a vital safety measure in any country. In Switzerland, the VKF (Swiss Fire Protection Association) has put in place legally binding fire protection regulations that are some of the highest in the world. Gruner offers specialized services that are recognized by the VKF, as well as technical information and advice on the use of building products that are harmonized throughout Europe. Thanks to the VKF's regulations, Switzerland enjoys a high level of fire safety. However, it is important to remember that fire protection is not a one-time effort; it must be an ongoing commitment in order to maintain a safe environment for everyone.

At Gruner, we understand that sustainable fire protection is about more than just keeping buildings and occupants safe from fire.

It's about engineering systems and solutions that are designed to protect people and property while also minimizing environmental impact. With over 90 years of experience in the fire protection industry, we have the expertise to provide sustainable solutions for any size project. Whether it's developing a new fire safety concept for a high-rise building or conducting hot smoke tests for a manufacturing facility, we have the knowledge and experience to get the job done right.
