Fire protection

Fire protection

Fire protection is a major issue in our three core areas media technology, electrical engineering and event technology. In order to fulfill high fire protection requirements, external fire protection measures such as fire protection curtains or large sprinkler systems had to be used up to now. The innovative solution to this problem are the AMFE (Automatic Miniature Fire Extinguisher) and the E-Bulb (Extinguishing Bulb, the smallest fire extinguisher in the world) developed by JOB GmbH. Both fire extinguishers are filled with the 3M extinguishing agent NOVEC, which is harmless to health, non-corrosive and non-conductive.

The areas of application of the AMFE and the E-Bulb are numerous. They range from power adapters in advertising screens (digital signage) to medical ventilation devices and household appliances in private homes. The AMFE  and the E-Bulb detect and extinguish a fire directly inside the device and interrupt the power supply to prevent the fire from spreading.

Advantages at a glance:

  • enhanced security
  • cost effective
  • easy installation
  • maintenance-free (E-Bulb)
  • no concequential damage (caused by deletion)
  • reduce product recall costs
  • protection from business interruption
  • acceptance from ensurance companies (premium reducton possible)
  • easy building approval
  • 100% made in Germany


The AMFE and the E-Bulb already are state-of-the-art in many fields and ensure more safety in a wide variety of sectors, such as media technology, medical technology and household appliances. Typical areas of application for the AMFE and the E-Bulb are small, closed cabinets and devices which, due to their small size and installation position, are not accessible to the general public or to qualified personnel during normal operation, e.g.:

LED walls, small control cabinets, showcases and collections, infrastructure facilities, computers, machine and safety cabinets, boats, mobile devices, and much more.

Practical example at the Berlin Airport:

sld mediatec installed a total of 29 double-sided and single-sided LED steles at Berlin Airport. They are located inside and outside the airport and serve on the one hand as digital advertising space (digital signage) and as information boards to inform and guide the guests. We installed a total of 57 AMFE (Automatic Miniature Fire Extinguisher) in these LED steles. The AMFE are ideal for areas with high fire protection requirements, such as airports, trade fairs and all types of public areas.
