Fire Suppression

There are many types of specialised industrial manufacturing processes that involve a heat source or potential ignition point i.e down to friction or poorly lubricated parts. Therefore, there is a risk of outbreak of fire.

Firecom Fire Systems Ltd have a huge amount of experience in not only installing specialised Fire Suppression Systems for industry but also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to provider the correct suppressant system for each specialised application.

Some of our recent projects to date involves installation work of Co2 gas Fire Suppression Systems for CNC machines, Industrial Printing presses, Server Rooms, Vehicle Suppressant Systems etc.

Server Rooms – Fire Risk

Whilst the popularity of cloud-based IT storage has grown, many companies still operate on site server systems which store all their data knowledge. Therefore, there is not only a great deal of heat given off by the servers but also a high risk of an electrical fire risk.

Our team are happy to advise on the correct application of a gas suppression system in a server room area whether it be Inergen, FM200 or another inert manufactured gases.

On activation of the detection system into the Server room area the gas subject to receiving confirmation of fire (a double knock system to prevent false discharges), will release suppressant gas into the room to successfully extinguish the fire.

Notification is given to personnel who may be working in the area via a series of alarms and visual beacons.

CO2 Gas Suppression Systems – Industrial Applications

Firecom Systems Ltd have a great deal of experience and specialist knowledge not only installing these type of gas systems but also servicing and maintaining them.

It is important at each service visit that the suppressant gas is either weighed or measured with a porta- level to confirm that the cylinders are still full of the correct weight of suppressant gas and that on discharge they will successfully extinguish a fire.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Types of Fire Suppression Systems do you offer?

Firecom Systems Ltd offers a range of fire suppression systems and kitchen fire suppression systems, including CO2 gas fire suppression systems suitable for various applications such as CNC machines, industrial printing presses, server rooms, and vehicle suppression systems.

How do Fire Suppression Systems work?

Fire suppression systems detect fire in the protected area and automatically release suppressant gas to extinguish it. For server rooms, systems like Inergen or FM200 are used, and upon confirmation of fire, the gas is released. The system includes alarms and visual beacons to notify personnel in the area.

What are the Key Benefits of Installing a Fire Suppression System?

The key benefits include enhanced safety by quickly suppressing fires, minimising equipment and property damage, and ensuring safety regulations compliance. These systems are especially beneficial in areas with high fire risk, like server rooms or industrial settings.

Can Fire Suppression Systems be Customised for Specific Environments?

Firecom Systems Ltd can customise fire suppression systems for specific environments and needs. The company has experience installing systems for various applications, each requiring a particular type of suppressant system.

How often do Fire Suppression Systems need Maintenance and Servicing?

How often do Fire Suppression Systems need Maintenance and Servicing?

Fire suppression systems require regular maintenance to ensure they function correctly. The specific frequency may depend on the type of system and its usage. Still, it typically involves checking the weight or level of suppressant gas and ensuring all components are in good working order.

What is the Process for Installing a Fire Suppression System?

The process starts with a site survey to assess the specific needs and risks. Firecom Systems Ltd then recommends the appropriate fire suppression system and manages the installation process, ensuring it meets all safety standards and requirements.

Are Fire Suppression Systems suitable for all Types of Fires?

Fire suppression systems are designed for specific types of fires, and their effectiveness can vary based on the fire class and the environment. For example, CO2 systems are effective for electrical fires and certain industrial applications but may not suit all fire types.

What Should I Do if the Fire Suppression System Activates?

If the system activates, ensure that all personnel evacuate the area immediately and contact emergency services. Do not attempt to re-enter the area until it has been declared safe by the fire service.

How do I Know if my Facility Needs a Fire Suppression System?

Consider factors like high-risk equipment, the type of materials handled, and regulatory requirements for fire safety. Facilities with high fire risk, such as server rooms or industrial settings with potential ignition sources, are strong candidates for fire suppression systems. Firecom Systems Ltd can advise on what fire safety systems are required for your business premises.
