Fires are a leading cause of industrial disasters. A fire in the workplace can result in major damage to buildings, disruption to day-to-day operations and risk to human life. Fitting a fire suppression system is therefore essential and there are many to choose from.
We would recommend an automatic fire suppression system as they do not require manual operation. What happens if a fire breaks out and no one is there to turn it on? We would also advocate fitting a self-contained system that does not require an external power supply. This ensures that your business is protected even if there is a power cut.
Secondly make sure that the system you have installed has been approved by leading safety consulting and safety agencies and complies with national and EU regulations. Specifically, LPCB, PER 1999 (PED), ISO 9001:2015.
Thirdly ensure that the system is compatible with commercially available fire supressing agents such as Novec 1230. If you need to replenish your system, the last thing you need is a long wait whilst the suppressing agent is shipped from the other side of the world.
And finally, who fits your fire suppression system is important. Select a reputable company that has experience of installing systems to a wide range of applications and situations.
