The world's first automatic fire protection system for electromobility

The impact on humans and the environment are dramatic if an electrified vehicle or a high-voltage lithium-ion battery catches fire.  The protection of humans, buildings and infrastructure must be guaranteed and has the highest priority in the case of fire.
This is where our automatic ecell-guard system comes in. The system was developed to actively protect humans and buildings from the resulting impact of a fire and to reduce damage to a minimum.

Main risks of fires in closed and open rooms

Smoke and extreme heat

Heat and toxic smoke endanger human life, contaminate the entire environment, make firefighting more difficult and cause considerable environmental remediation costs.

Uncontrollable fire

Isolating the fire is particularly important for fire protection concepts in enclosed public and private buildings of all kinds. Fires can spread quickly and uncontrollably to other buildings or vehicles and cause further damage.

Water damages

The use of extinguishing water to fight fires inevitably results in water damage to the building or interior fittings. The resulting extinguishing water must be disposed of afterwards at great expense, as additives in the extinguishing water often lead to contamination.

Electrical fires and their impact


Even conventional vehicle fires pose an immense risk to humans and building structures. First and foremost, as already described, through heat and smoke. But the subsequent extinguishing work also poses major risks. An electric vehicle fire poses additional challenges that go far beyond the dangers mentioned above, such as heat, smoke and extinguishing water. The picture above shows the fire of an electric vehicle in a public underground parking garage in southern Germany.

The functioning of the system as an animation

The animation shows the individual stages and how the components of the ecell-guard system work:

Stage 1: Detection of the fire using various sensors and triggering of the fire alarm system.

Stage2: The ecell-guard system activates automatically.

Stage 3: The fire blanket is thrown over the vehicle, protecting buildings and humans in the immediate environment.
