Patents and innovation
GSA generates innovation with the aim of introducing new standards of excellence in its areas of competence.
Drawing on its commitment to researching and developing new solutions, GSA has designed and launched new systems for managing fires in complex environments. The ability to design customised services for every type of infrastructure at a high risk of fire, using proprietary technologies covered internationally by highly innovative industrial patents of undisputed effectiveness, makes GSA a truly reliable partner in every context.
The company’s revolutions in the fire service industry include a number of innovative technologies and patents.
Colombo® is an innovative fire mitigation and extinguishing system for tunnels. An innovative safety measure providing high levels of protection, this sprinkler-operated fire mitigation and extinguishing system is an effective water-based fire-fighting system.
The Fire Totem system is patented in Italy as a “dry-pipe water-based fire extinguishing system”, submitted to the Ministry of Economic Development. The Fire Totem is made up of a network of dry-pipe hydrants supplying fire-fighting equipment under the standards UNI TS 11559 and UNI 10779 of 11/2014.
The highly efficient and effective micronised water technology is a fire extinguishing system patented by GSA for installation on motorcycles, mini cars and pick-up vans. This is a particularly effective fire-fighting system in cases where water supply is almost impossible, such as tunnels with no extinguishing systems or isolated and poorly accessible locations.
iTunnel® is a smart robotic system designed to control and extinguish fires in road, motorway, railway and underground tunnels. It was conceived and developed by GSA in collaboration with CISM, the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences in Udine, and the Italian Department of Construction and Transport.
