Fire Protection business

The “Fire Protection” business consists of two subsidiaries (CLF-SATREM and VAN DAM) that have complementary activities with each addressing different markets.


CLF-SATREM operates in the active fire protection market in the industrial and tertiary sectors in France. CLF-SATREM designs, installs and maintains fixed fire protection systems. Its solutions range from traditional fixed systems (sprinklers, RIA) to more specialised systems for special risks (deluge, foam, water mist and gas systems). The Company covers all of France through ten regional agencies.


VAN DAM designs, manufactures and installs passive fire protection systems (fire and blast-rated doors, walls and windows) to protect personnel and equipment in hostile environments in the energy industry and, particularly, in the oil and gas, maritime and offshore wind farm industries.

Nuclear Protection business

The Group has developed a complete offer in the field of nuclear environment protection and safety through its BAUMERT subsidiary. This subsidiary designs and produces high-performance partition systems:

  • special and technical doors: neutron, biological, blast-resistant, soundproof, firebreak, air and watertight, etc.;
  • special walls: anti-radiation, firebreaks, blast and aeroplane crash-resistant, etc.;
  • related services/maintenance.

These high-security partition systems are primarily intended for nuclear plants, but are also used in research centres, reprocessing plants, sensitive industrial sites (petrochemical and pharmaceutical), etc.

The Group provides complementary consultancy services through its SERES Technologies subsidiary specialised in studies and research for nuclear installation safety, as well as for petrochemical sites and energy innovation industries.
