In the event a fire does occur, the fire suppression system is vital in reducing property damage and loss of life. A fire suppression system encompasses a broad range of products and equipment including sprinkler systems, gas suppression systems and hydrant and hose reel systems.
1. Fire Sprinkler Systems
Fire sprinkler systems are intended to actively provide a means to suppress or extinguish fire in an emergency situation. The four main types of sprinkler systems are:- wet system, dry system, pre-action system and deluge system.
2. Gas Suppression Systems
Gas suppression systems are commonly employed in areas that are highly volatile, critical or contain sensitive equipment where non-fire damage from water is as detrimental to the equipment or materials as fire.
3. Hydrants & Hose Reels
Fire hydrant and hose reel systems are an installation of pipes, water tanks, pumps, hydrant outlets and/or hose reels in a building to provide a ready means by which a flow of water can be delivered in any part of the building for the purpose of fire fighting.
