Rheinmetall Canada teams with CBG Systems Property Ltd to bring Rapid Access marine structural fire protection to Canada
Rheinmetall Canada, a member of the Rheinmetall Defence Group, is the licensed Canadian distributor of CBG’s Rapid Access structural fire protection systems for the marine industry.
Founded in 1978, CBG Systems is the world’s leading innovator in marine fire and thermal insulation systems. The panelized structural fire protection systems were developed in response to the needs of shipbuilders and operators. Its flagship lightweight panelized system has captured over 95% of the international market for high-speed aluminum vessels greater than 50 metres long.
With fire protection ratings of A60 and N30, and certified by DNV GL, USCG, MED and a number of individual national maritime authorities, these structural fire protection systems have been installed in more than 100 naval/coast guard and commercial vessels. The systems include three panelized products: Rapid Access Stainless (RAS), Rapid Access Composite (RAC) and Rapid Access Navy-30.
The technology promises significant construction and operational savings to shipbuilders and ship owners and operators through reduced weight, improved operational performance, certified safety, efficient installation and easy maintenance.
The innovative nature of CBG’s Rapid Access panelized structural fire protection systems makes them the perfect state-of-the-art technology for the Canadian marine market as investment in re-capitalizing the federal fleets accelerates.
Rheinmetall Canada looks forward to contributing to the modernization of shipbuilding practices and improving operational performance through the introduction of leading-edge technology to increase maritime safety. This initiative complies fully with the intent of the industrial technology benefits and value proposition aspects of Canada’s Defence Procurement Strategy; will ensure the effective transfer of technology to the Canadian marine industry; and gives Canadian clients the assurance of timely in-country support.
