Passive fire protection (PFP) is an integral component of the structural fire protection and fire safety in a building. PFP attempts to contain fires or slow the spread, through use of fire-resistant walls, floors, and doors and more.
In the event of a fire, early detection offers crucial protection for your business, saving lives and minimising damage and loss of property.
Electro Fire Technologies Pty Ltd can install, inspect and test a range of detection devices, including:
- Addressable/conventional detectors
- Aspirating smoke detectors (ASD)
- Beam detector
- Flame and infrared detectors
- Manual call points
Electro Fire Technology can install, inspect and test suppression systems, including:
A fire sprinkler system is an active fire protection method, used to extinguish fire in the case of an emergency.
Fire hydrant and hose reel systems
These systems are an essential safety measure, providing fire-fighting personnel with an accessible and controlled supply of water for firefighting purposes.
Special Hazard Systems
Water mist system is a fire protection system which uses very fine water sprays (i.e. water mist). The small water droplets allow the water mist to control, suppress or extinguish fires by: cooling both the flame and surrounding gases by displacing oxygen by evaporation.
Foam systems increase the effectiveness of water and are used in highly combustible areas.
Gaseous suppression systems, which work by starving the fire of oxygen, are used in areas that where water would damage sensitive equipment.
Electro Fire Technologies can install, inspect and test portables, including:
All workplaces must have portable fire extinguishers installed. These must be properly maintained and placed, and users adequately trained to ensure effectiveness.
Different types of fire extinguishers are designed to extinguish specific classes of fire and it is essential to use the correct extinguisher.
Fire blankets are designed to smother a fire by cutting off the supply of oxygen. They are best suited for small fires fueled by oils or fats, or when clothing has caught fire.
Exit and Emergency lighting
All buildings require emergency exit signage to allow for occupants to exit safely, and for emergency personnel to navigate through a building in an emergency. These need regular inspection and testing to ensure full functionality in an emergency situation.
