Even if you are insured against fire and subsequent loss, your insurance company may compensate for loss of equipment and building structure, but nothing can restore the loss of precious lives.

Of course safety of all occupants within a building is of the utmost importance There are numerous Benefits to having a Fire Detection and/or Fire Suppression system installed in a building.

Fire DetectionThe advantage of time is the ability to prevent unnecessary loss and minimise interruptions of business continuity. An automatic fire detection and alarm system generally provides a network of manual call points, fire sensors and alarm warning devices over the area covered. It allows one to constantly monitor the building and warn if a fire breaks out, or is suspected. We offer:

Gas SuppressionWhen a fire disrupts your business operations, it causes substantial and unnecessary financial loss. The use of most common fire fighting extinguishment such as water, foam or dry chemical can cause greater financial loss than the fire. Often downtime outweighs the loss of equipment and structure, hence the importance of selecting the correct suppression systems.
