Importance Of Fire Protection

Posted: 15th October 2014

A fire can occur almost anywhere at any time without warning and have devastating consequences. It is very advantageous to have fire protection, whether for the home or business, in order to keep the things that matter most safe. The current most efficient systems can warn about fires or put them out when they flare up. The next leap in technology will surely make these even more efficient than they already are.

Many machines have to be built according to certain codes, a major part of them being fire protection. One of the most common ways to do this is by installing smoke alarms. While smoke alarms are helpful, they only serve as a warning that there is already in progress. They do not do anything to prevent or stop fires from causing destruction, which can be very costly.

Systems such as the Fogmaker Water Mist system, on the other hand, actually do something about the fire by putting it out. This fire protection system uses mostly water, with a 3% synthetic foam which will blanket the fire and smother it. The foam is classified as being AFFF, or aqueous film forming foam, and is used on fires caused by flammable liquids such as deisel and oils.

The Fogmaker is a smaller and more effective form of fire suppression, due to the fact that it is a small tank with attached hoses put directly into places where fires might wreak havoc. It is perfect for installing into bulky machinery or enclosed spaces. The tanks come in various sizes so that they can fit almost anywhere, even in the engine compartment of a boat to help put out fires there.

KBE Fire Protection knows how important it is to have a system that can immediately start working on putting out a fire without having to run for buckets of water or a fire extinguisher. In Perth, Australia they install the Fogmaker system as fire protection in homes and business to help keep people safe, just because it is one of the safest fire protection technologies available.
