Fire suppression Systems
Fire suppression systems are used to prevent fire spreading and to reduce the level of damage and down time. This is achieved by automatically suppressing the fire ready for the Fire Service to arrive and ensure it is safe for everyone present in the premises to return. This ensures that your critical processes within your business or professional operations are up and running again in the minimum time.
Automatically suppressing or extinguishing a fire, mechanical fire systems pipe liquid or gas to nozzles strategically located for discharge in the event of a fire.
Mechanical systems cover a broad range of suppression fire control necessary to protect domestic, commercial and industrial applications, and contain a combination of tanks or cylinders, pipe work and the use of liquid or gas which is discharged in the event of a fire.
Depending on the mechanical system installed, fire is detected through nozzles, heat probes or smoke detectors. Often integrated with building protection systems, fire is detected through either nozzles, heat probes or smoke detectors.
Do you need an Automatic Fire Suppression System?
Most commercial and institutional buildings will have a fire detection system to protect the occupants and the building, but is just detecting the fire enough?
The problem with having just detection is that although you know you have a fire (the fire alarm sounders or bells are ringing) there is no way to safely suppress the fire yourself and prevent fire spreading – and that’s if you are there. The Fire Service will be sent to extinguish it when called, but the smoke damage occurring before they arrive and the water damage after can be quite significant
