When fires are extinguished in the early stages, loss of life and direct property damage is minimal. 93% of all fire-related deaths and 95% of all direct property damage occur when a fire has progressed beyond the early stages.
How Fire Suppression Works
Fire Suppression Systems work by utilising detection devices to identify when smoke or heat is present in a room or building, to activate and send clean agent gases or water into a room to automatically suppress the fire. A suppression system can either utilise water or gas as the agent of suppression, with gas systems typically being more appropriate when there is a need to minimise the damage to other areas of the room where water would have an impact on the long term continued function of the building.
At Sygma Fire Services, we have specialist knowledge in the design and implementation of Water Mist Suppression Systems and Gas Suppression Systems to protect your building, assets and people against the risk of fire. We can assist with the implementation of the suppression system during the construction of the building, or more commonly, assist with the retro-fit solution to enable a building to be protected by suppression post construction.
