Cairns Fire Protection & Fire Control Measures
Fire Sprinkler Systems
Automatic sprinkler systems offer immediate action and response, to a detected fire situation. This is known as active fire protection. Fire sprinkler systems will automatically commence operations (releasing water), once a predetermined temperature has been exceeded. Fire sprinkler systems are most common in commercial premises, public hospitals, nursing homes and libraries. The fire sprinkler system was invented over 200 years ago and has proved a robust and effective fire protection mechanism.
Fire Suppression Systems
What’s a fire suppression system? Basically it’s a system designed to suppress and extinguish a fire once detected. Fire suppression systems do include automatic water sprinkler systems, but they also include gas suppression, water mist suppression and AFFF suppression. Cairns Fire Detection Technologies can help. We’re qualified fire suppression experts. We know the equipment and systems and as well as providing advice, we can service, repair and maintain a fire suppression system to meet your needs.
Stair pressurisation systems provide front line protection to people, in the event of a fire. They are designed to ensure building occupants have sufficient time to evacuate the premise in the event of a fire, before the stairwell becomes an untenable escape route. This particular fire protection system is important for high rise office buildings, apartments and hotels. It’s a legal requirement under the Building Code of Australia to have an effective and functional stair pressurisation system. This includes supply air shut down and smoke spill fan.
Air Conditioner Shutdowns
Air conditioner shutdowns are an important part of an effective Cairns fire protection system? Why? Our region is tropical. The majority of buildings, have an air conditioning system. What does an air conditioning system do? Circulate air (hot or cold) around a building. Smoke is carried in the air and an automatic air conditioner shutdown ensures smoke is not circulated throughout a building during a fire event. This helps to protect people, occupants and fire fighters.
