Fire Protection System

Water Based Sprinkler System

Sprinkler systems automatically detect and then control, suppress, or extinguish fires. Water supplies can come from water mains, dedicated storage tanks or ponds. Valves and alarm devices control and monitor the water’s flow. Distribution pipes send water to the sprinkler heads using a municipal water source to maintain and increase water pressure according to design criteria.
Modern systems can detect a fire condition and discharge water quickly, before a fire grows to a fatal or catastrophic size, reducing fire deaths by nearly 100 percent.
Understanding your fire sprinkler system can be life saving.

Gas Based Sprinkler System

It is process of suppressing fire by reducing the concentration of atmospheric oxygen by adding other gas. This system is highly effective in an enclosed risk areas such as control rooms, server rooms, computer rooms etc.

1. Co2 Systems – Co2 systems are conventional gas systems used to fight fire.

2. Clean Agent Gas Systesm – Clean Agent Gas Systems use enviornment friendly gases in systems fighting fire.

Fire Hydrant System

Hydrant system is a mechanism where water is pumped, tapped off and released in the form of a jet through a nozzel to extinguish fire.

1) Fire Escape Hydrant Systems Its a type of Hydrant system that is extensively in high rise buildings where special outlets are provided on each floor.

2) Yeard Hydrant Systems Yard hydrant system is a method where fire hydrant network is led throughout the designated premises.

Fire Extinguisher

Fire extinguishers are divided into four categories, based on different types of fires. Each fire extinguisher also has a numerical rating that serves as a guide for the amount of fire the extinguisher can handle. The higher the number, the more fire-fighting power. The following is a quick guide to help choose the right type of extinguisher.

  • Class A extinguishers are for ordinary combustible materials such as paper, wood, cardboard, and most plastics. The numerical rating on these types of extinguishers indicates the amount of water it holds and the amount of fire it can extinguish. Geometric symbol (green triangle)
  • Class B fires involve flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, kerosene, grease and oil. The numerical rating for class B extinguishers indicates the approximate number of square feet of fire it can extinguish. Geometric symbol (red square)
    Class C fires involve electrical equipment, such as appliances,wiring, circuit breakers and outlets. Never use water to extinguish
  • class C fires – the risk of electrical shock is far too great! Class C extinguishers do not have a numerical rating. The C classification means the extinguishing agent is non-conductive. Geometric symbol (blue circle)
  • Class D fire extinguishers are commonly found in a chemical laboratory. They are for fires that involve combustible metals,such as magnesium, titanium, potassium and sodium. These types of extinguishers also have no numerical rating, nor are they given a multi-purpose rating – they are designed for class D fires only.Geometric symbol (Yellow Decagon)
  • Class K fire extinguishers are for fires that involve cooking oils, trans-fats, or fats in cooking appliances and are typically found in restaurant and cafeteria kitchens. Geometric symbol (blackhexagon)
