The primary objective of fire protection is to safeguard human life, valued assets and the environment from the catastrophic effects of fire. Comprehensive fire protection requires an in-depth risk assessment and a vigilant system design.
The implementation of an integrated fire protection solution must deal with fire prevention and extinguishing as well as limiting its spread. To achieve this, various elements and parameters are involved such as:
Passive fire protection:
Fire resistant materials (e.g. paints, glass), intumescent pillows, fire dampers, door springs, compartmentalisation, fire detection and fire alarm and notification systems.
Active fire protection:
Selection of the fire suppression/extinguishing systems which also requires the study of the dynamics and fire classes.
The need to educate and train people:
When designing and implementing a bespoke fire extinguishing system, we adhere to the above principles and specifically take into consideration the following parameters
Proper positioning of the system units:
