Fire has always been both a blessing and a curse to mankind. On one side, without fire, man could never have survived, especially in cold climates, far from the equator. It provides warmth and light, keeping dangers at bay. On the other side, fire can be terribly devastating, burning down houses, forests and fields of crops. It is the destructive characteristic of fire that brought companies such as F.A.S. FABBRICA APPARECCHIATURE ANTICENDIO S.p.A. to study, design and manufacture products to fight against this apparently unstoppable force. Located in Cura Carpignano, Italy, F.A.S. S.p.A. is one of the leading companies in the field of advanced fire-fighting systems.
