Protection of people, building and assets from a fire is a paramount concern to any organisation. Keeping a site safe is not the only priority but with the risk of physical damage and financial loss resulting from a fire, there is also the risk to operational performance and reputation, so a reliable and responsive fire system that can respond rapidly to any situation is required.
Early warning fire systems and detection technology can detect a fire, and in the case of extinguishant detection, it can also automatically release a fire suppression agent to eliminate fire within seconds. Stopping a fire within the first few moments can reduce or avoid damage to equipment and assets and subsequent loss of operational productivity.
