The Loss Prevention Certification Board has certified Firetrace’s direct low pressure NOVEC 1230 system for the new LPCB Standard LPS1666.  The new standard was developed to verify the performance of direct pneumatic tube based suppression systems and to confirm to potential customers that they are manufactured by an ISO 9001: 2015 approved manufacturer. 

Many domestic fires in England are caused by common household appliances such as tumble dryers, washing machines, dishwashers and fridges malfunctioning. These fires could easily be avoided by fitting Firetrace’s automatic fire suppression system.

Wind turbines are expensive and highly technical machines. In order to be financially viable, these machines must operate for a number of years without interruption. The last thing an operator wants to happen is a fire of any size breaking out that would put the turbine out of action. In January this year a fire broke out at Knabs Ridge onshore wind farm near Harrogate; although no one was injured in the incident the local fire brigade were needed to extinguish the fire.  Pictures taken after the incident show the nacelle completely burnt out.

In the news, there have been reports in the press recently of faulty tumble dryers catching fire. Specifically tumble dryers manufactured Whirlpool from April 2004 to September 2015 have been behind a series of fires caused by a build up of excessive fluff. The brands involved are Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit.
