Ultraguard Water Mist Protection System
Surefire’s UltraGuard portable personal protection system was introduced in 2010 and has been a pioneering development in the field of fire safety. It is particularly invaluable for protecting the elderly and vulnerable, suppressing the fire at an early stage and allowing time for evacuating the premises and for the fire services to arrive.
UltraGuard is a water mist system so unlike conventional sprinkler systems, it will atomise the water into tiny micro-droplets. This personal protection system is highly effective as a fire and smoke suppressant, reducing temperature and carbon monoxide levels while the oxygen level within the room will remain the same. The gentle action of UltraGuard’s water mist spray has also been shown not to have a traumatic effect on occupants within or exiting a building.
Comprehensive fire protection 24/7
Each UltraGuard unit holds over 110 litres of water and the consistent spray of water mist into a room will last for ten minutes, suppressing an area of up to 16 square metres and controlling an area twice that size. It has been estimated to have saved from between 8 to 10 lives per year throughout the UK since it was launched.
UltraGuard is the only personal protection system to have been accredited with BRE (Building Research Establishment) LPS1655 certification. This means that it was able to meet rigorous test protocols and performance criteria to fulfil the requirements for compliance.
Fully portable and compact, it can stand guard like your personal firefighter, 24 hours a day, and 365 days per year. UltraGuard’s flexibility means that it can be moved from room to room and plugged in as required.
Applications in the care sector
This portable water mist system has wide applications within the care sector and, with local authorities increasingly looking to offer care within the home for the elderly and vulnerable, the UltraGuard personal protection system offers the ideal solution. The system is also used by Councils and Housing Associations to protect residents. It will rapidly detect both fast burning and smouldering fires and has an integrated auto-dialling feature, or can be linked to an existing auto-dialling facility, which will alert nominated persons in the case of emergency.
A personal protection system that is tried and tested and proven to be highly effective, the UltraGuard Portable Water Mist System is unrivalled in the field of fire safety for the most vulnerable in our society.
Fire suppression systems are used to reduce the level of damage and down time by automatically suppressing the fire ready for the Fire Service.
KITCHEN SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS
Commercial kitchen fires can start within seconds, and spread within the kitchen or restaurant at an alarming speed.
Your first line of defence, fire extinguishers are required to comply with the Fire Safety Order and are strategically located according to your fire risk assessment.
The automatic sprinkler system is the most commonly used fire protection system today. Designed to provide immediate fire defence to protect lives and minimise material losses.
DRY & WET RISERS
sers are installed within large scale buildings for the Fire Service to deliver vast quantities of water to fight a fire. Dry risers are kept empty of water, and wet risers are permanently charged with water either directly from a storage tank…
