The company BIG Brandschutz Innovationen was founded in 1991 in Giengen/Brenz to introduce innovative products for firefighting in Europe.
BIG did pioneer work with the introduction of positive pressure ventilation with power blowers, in those days a novel method for rapid smoke extraction, heat control and fresh air supply in firefighting operations. Nowadays the positive pressure ventilation, also known as tactical ventilation, is a default procedure that is practiced by fire and rescue teams in almost all countries. Also In the industrial sector, the positive pressure ventilation is now successfully applied.
The ventilation and cooling of large structures such as underground garages, high-rise buildings, airports, underground railway, railway / road traffic tunnels and shopping centers confront fire departments with serious challenges. Tunnel fires may become a disaster, as fires in the past tragically showed. In 1995 we have been the first manufacturer who had a solution for that problem – the Mobile Grand Ventilator.
Within the last few years the product program permanently was enlarged. Today we offer one of the most extensive ventilation product programs for firefighters and disaster control worldwide. In 2016 we could celebrate 25 years of BIG Brandschutz Innovationen.
In 1995 the company B.S. Belüftungs-GmbH based in Bachhagel was founded. The company B.S. Belüftungs-GmbH is partner of BIG Brandschutz Innovationen, is responsible for the operational business and is the contact for all products.
