Fire Protection Equipment for Fire Safety

Posted: 21st March 2014

There’s no equipment that can ever guarantee fire-proofing for your equipment or assets. However, you can always do something to increase your chances of protecting your equipment from fire and protecting your life and others from its raging fury.

You can begin with the following:

Water Sprinkler Systems

Water sprinklers are small outlets that are attached above the risk areas. Normally they are placed on top of heat sources, for example—those that consume a lot of electricity, use combustion, and have a higher risk of causing fire.

Sprinkler systems are designed to be extremely sensitive with changes in temperature. Once they detect heat, they let out a shower of water in order to put out the fire or reduce its spread.

Fire Alarms

Fire alarms are paired with many fire systems. Alarms don’t give out any extinguishing agent and don’t have the capability to kill off fire. However, they produce high-pitched sounds, which will alert you whenever there’s fire. Sometimes the sounds are so loud they can be heard at great distance, allowing people from many places to raise the alarm and help.

A number of fire alarms, however, are so sensitive even a moderate change in temperature can activate them. Fire alarm settings can be changed, so make sure you can pick the best one for your situation.

Fire Extinguishers

There are actually many different types of fire extinguishers. Their content and usage depend on the type of material that is currently on fire. If you don’t know which fire extinguisher to use, you can get some recommendation from trusted sellers both online and offline. As their name suggests, fire extinguishers contain components that can put out fire. Fire Extinguishers are only for small spot fires, before they get too big to handle. Never put yourself at risk and try to tackle a fire if you are not competent to do so.

Fogmaker Water Mist and AFFF foam

This is an entirely new fire suppression technology, which is just gaining ground in Australia. It is called Fogmaker, which is a water mist system, which basically combines both the functions of water sprinklers and fire extinguishers. Yet to a much higher degree with patented high pressure piston driven technology that drives the water out through micro nozzles to produce a fine mist.
They are compact and versatile, making them ideal for equipment with very limited spaces. They can be attached in almost any vehicle, and they are still functional during roll-overs.

KBE doesn’t only take care of demolition, asbestos removal, and other roofing and cladding needs of your company or premesis. We also provide you with fire protection systems. We are a leading provider of Fogmaker Water Mist systems in Perth and the rest of Western Australia. The new innovative technology is a sure-fire hit in Europe for its compactness, portability, and effectiveness (yes, it does work better than many fire extinguishers).
