What Is A Fire Suppression System?

A fire suppression system is a group of units that are built to extinguish fires by releasing something. Most commonly, you will find built-in components that detect fires through heat, smoke, and other warning signals. These will signal an alarm system to alert you when the fire has been detected and take action to suppress the fire. Most will have automated release but some could be manually activated.

What Does It Do?

In areas where a sprinkler system might not be the most effective method of fire prevention, a fire suppression system could be installed. If the room stores perishable items or electrical equipment that could be damaged by water, it is a useful alternative. By producing gas or foam instead, your valuables will be protected while eliminating the fire before it has a chance to spread.

Consider Your Limitations

Each time we install fire detection and suppression systems, we make sure to consider all limitations. Your safety and the safety of anyone in the building is always our priority. Wherever we can work to increase safety in certain areas, we will discuss the best options with you. We can install and repair systems to ensure they’re always ready in case of emergency.

Industrial Supression Systems

Industrial plants are hazardous environments and industrial fire suppression systems are designed to extinguish fires fueled by chemicals, liquid fuels, or other hazardous materials. For this reason, industrial fire suppression systems use dry chemicals. This way we can tackle emergencies without causing further damage or spreading the fire further.

Sprinkler or Supression System?

A sprinkler relies solely on water to extinguish fires and is the most common product found in residential areas, schools and public buildings. They can work well for the right situations but what’s the difference? Really, the main difference is the substances used to extinguish fires. Suppression systems use water alternatives but can still extinguish in the a,e capacity and on the a,e scale as sprinklers.

Tricky Environments

Larger buildings with multiple storeys can really benefit from these systems as it provides instant suppression, allowing more time for occupants to escape the premesis. Also, in high-security buildings where rooms may contain electrical equipment and rarely be visited by people, it keeps them safe without manual detection. No one needs to enter the room before it is safe to do so.

VESDA stands for Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus. These aspirating smoke detection systems are used where early warning to a fire is fundamental. If servicing of a conventional system is problematic or aesthetics are a major consideration such as in luxury flats and houses or listed buildings, a VESDA system can be an ideal solution.

We use the most advanced Redcare Secure alarm signalling system to connect & monitor intruder alarms from our central monitoring station.

Redcare is a well-established division of BT and the UK leader in alarm signalling services. It already works with hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses throughout the country and uses mobile wireless networks backed up by landline telephone signals. Its security systems are future-proofed against changes to the telephone network and can adapt to your changing needs.

DDA fire alarm systems are frequently combined with intercom systems to assist in the evacuation of disabled individuals in the event of a fire. These are often included as part of a nurse call system in assisted living environments, where a panic alarm can be used to allow patients to alert nursing staff for assistance in an emergency. Enhance your fire security & protection to create a WLS safe space.

Automatic Opening Vents release smoke from residential corridors particularly in “Stay in place” scenarios. AOV systems can be integrated with a fire control panel for enhanced fire prevention.
