Fire Protection

Best protection with non-flammable monitors

In buildings with a high volume of people or critical infrastructure, strict fire protection regulations often apply. The installation of standard monitors is usually not permitted here, as in the event of a fire the smoke emitted by the technical equipment could have devastating consequences in these sensitive locations.

In addition, the optimal locations for such information monitors are often also designated as escape and rescue routes. Until now, the reallocation of digital information systems at these locations was only possible with heavy additional housings.

Our fire protection monitors are the ideal solution for this. In a fire test, the BLO-Line® has shown that it complies with the highest fire protection class A1 according to DIN EN 13501-1:2019-05 without additional housing, with many of the limit values even being far undercut.

Distec is thus the first supplier to offer a stand-alone fire load and flue gas optimized monitor of the highest fire protection class A1, even with multi-touch screen on request.

For more information, please refer to our BLO brochure.


Fires in buildings and their effects on the surrounding area endanger people's lives and health. To prevent the development and spread of fire, there are strict regulations on fire protection in the state building regulations and in the model building regulation (German federal law), § 14.

The following protection goals are binding:

  • The development of a fire is to be prevented
  • The spread of fire and smoke must be prevented
  • The rescue of people must be made possible
  • Effective extinguishing work must be made possible

Building accesses as well as rescue and escape routes are of particular importance in this respect. These are areas which, in the event of a fire, are intended to provide people in the building with a way out, to protect their health and to save lives. Therefore, these areas are the special focus of every fire safety officer.

Monitors are electronic devices that pose a high risk potential in case of fire. According to German fire law, the installation of such devices in escape routes is therefore generally not permitted.

Only with Distec fire protection monitors you are on the safe side, because they are certified and proven to be non-flammable.

Fire Protection Monitors with Touch

Until now, touch solutions were not possible with fire protection monitors. The main reason for this was the fire protection glass, which prevents the touch sensor from functioning correctly due to its special, heat-shielding structure. Even in solutions with fire protection housings, the use of a touch screen is excluded due to the design.

By working closely with our glass partners, we have succeeded in developing a solution that brings PCAP touch and fire protection glass together.

Distec is thus the first manufacturer to offer fire protection monitors with PCAP touch screen in sizes from 24.0" to 54.6".

Compact Solution without Compromise



Compared to combinations with separate fire protection housing, our BLO-Line® monitors are lightweight, compact and easy-to-install complete solutions.
