The protection of people is SLAT’s largest market.
Fire is still a major cause of deaths
There were 281,900* fires in 2014, 11,718 of which occurred in establishments open to the general public or on company premises. This resulted in 70% the affected companies going out of business, leaving their employees without work. In total, fires account for 30,000 victims a year.
This figure is dropping thanks to increasingly high-performance fire detection systems and the expertise of the emergency services. However, conscientious professionals and stakeholders need to be increasingly vigilant in order to provide optimal protection for the people they are responsible for.
