Fire suppression systems
Even the best fire prevention measures can’t guarantee against a fire breaking out on your property or business premises. If a fire does break out, the sooner it can be tackled the better, so that the potential for damage to property and the risk to any people in the building can be kept to a minimum.
Automatic fire suppression systems can detect a fire and start fighting it almost immediately, without having to wait for any kind of human intervention. They differ from sprinklers in that water will not usually form part of the range of fire suppression measures, because of the risks involved in using it on electrical, oil or combustible gas fires.
Fire suppression systems are commonly used in the following environments:
- Data centres
- Industrial & manufacturing
- Commercial kitchens
- Warehousing & storage
- And more
Among the types of fire suppression systems available from Hoyles Fire & Safety are:
- Gas suppression system
- CO2 fire suppression system
- Foam fire suppression system
How does a fire suppression system work?
Like many fire control systems, fire suppression works by detecting heat, smoke or flames and triggering an automatic response, which makes it an ‘active’ method of fire control. Fire suppression systems can be installed in remote and rarely used parts of premises so that all parts of your business are protected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
