Fire Protection Products & Systems

Slider-28

You can count on an ENGIE Services fire technician to recommend the best ‘fit for purpose and budget’ fire protection products and systems for your operation.

Our experienced technicians are knowledgeable of the most reliable fire protection technologies, products and systems available on the market.

Fire Protection

Fire Door

The best fire protection is prevention and passive fire systems. A passive fire system, such as Fire Doors, compartmentalises the building and prevents or slows the spread of fire from the room where it originated to other areas in the building.

Building owners use passive fire systems to close off gaps in floors and walls, around cables, pipes and ducts and in control joints.

We provide a comprehensive range of fire doors and passive systems to help you prevent the risk of fire in your building.

Fire Detection

Smoke Detector

The early detection of fire plays a critical role in protecting the safety of your occupants and minimizing the loss and damage to your business.

We conduct a risk assessment of your building to provide you with systems and devices that detect fire in accordance with building regulations and your unique requirements.

Fire Detection systems:

  • Conventional heat, smoke and flame detection
  • Analogue addressable heat, smoke and flame detection
  • High-sensitivity air sampling detectors

Fire Detection devices:

  • Heat Detectors: spot and line heat detection
  • Smoke Detectors: photoelectric, ionisation and multi-criteria
  • Flame Detectors: ultraviolet, infrared, dual spectrum and triple infrared
  • Pull Stations
  • Audible Alarm Devices: such as Bells, Horns and Speakers

Fire Alarms & Notifications

Fire Alarm

Emergency warning and evacuation systems are a critical element of every fire safety system.

We install and maintain two types of Emergency Warning Systems:

  • Building Occupant Warning Systems (BOWS)
  • Sound Systems and Intercom Systems for Emergency Purposes, previously referred to as an Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System (EWIS)

The main point of difference between the two systems is the EWIS’s ability to engage in two-way communication via the Warden Intercommunication Points (WIPs).

Building codes specify a Building Occupant Warning System to be provided when a smoke hazard management system or sprinkler system is to be installed in the building. 

A Sound Systems and Intercom Systems For Emergency Purposes (also known as an Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System) needs to be installed in instances where the building satisfies one of the following conditions:

  • A building with an effective height of more than 25m
  • A Class 3 building, a rise of two storeys or more, and used as a residential part of a school or accommodation for the aged, children or people with disabilities
  • A Class 3 building used as a residential aged care building
  • A Class 9a building having a floor area of more than 1,000m2 or rise of more than twostoreys
  • A Class 9b building used as a school and having a rise of more than three storeys or used as a theatre, public hall or the like having a floor area of more than 1,000m2 or a rise of more than 2 storeys

Fire Suppression Systems

Fire Sprinkler System

We specialise in the design, installation and maintenance of the full range of fire suppression systems, including:

  •  Sprinkler systems
    • Wet: the most common are typically found in office buildings, retail establishments and climate-controlled warehouses.
    • Dry: designed for environments where the ambient temperature may be cold enough to freeze the water in the sprinkler piping, such as unheated buildings, parking garages and loading docks.
    • Pre-action: typically used in areas where accidental activation is unacceptable due to the high value and irreplaceable nature of the equipment or content being protected, e.g. museums, data centres and libraries.
    • Deluge: commonly used in special hazard areas where rapid fire spread is a concern such as outdoor transformers and fuel loading racks.
  • Water mist systems
  • Foam systems
  • Gaseous suppression systems
    • Commonly employed in areas that are highly volatile, critical or contain sensitive equipment where damage from water is as detrimental to the equipment / materials as a fire (e.g. data centres, hospitals, switchboard rooms, etc.)
    • Gaseous Systems (FM200 / Novec 1230 / Argonite / Proinert / CO2)
    • Waterspray Systems (Medium and High Velocity)
    • Pre-engineered Foam Systems / Wet Chemical / Dry Chemical Systems
    • Foam Systems (Low / Medium / High Expansion)
    • Explosion Detection / Suppression
  • Hydrant and hose reel systems

Fire Extinguishers

Fire Extinguisher

Portable fire extinguishers must be installed in all workplaces regardless of whether other fire protection measures are present.

As an early response to a developing fire, the successful performance of a fire extinguisher depends on appropriate placement, proper maintenance, and trained users. We provide these services so that in the event of a fire, your occupants have full knowledge of how to use a fire extinguisher.

We sell, test and service all classes of fire extinguishers. Our highly trained technicians inspect, certify, and repair them in strict adherence to regulations and building codes.

The different classes of extinguishers are:

  • Class A – Ordinary Combustible Solids
    • Wood, paper, cloth, plastics, rubber, coal, and carbon based compounds, etc.
  • Class B – Flammable & Combustible Liquids
    • Petrol, oil, paint, thinners, kerosene, alcohol, etc.
  • Class C – Flammable Gases
    • L.P.G., Butane, Acetylene, Hydrogen, natural gas and Methane etc.
  • Class D – Combustible Metals
    • Magnesium, aluminium, sodium or potassium etc.
  • Class E – Electrically Energised Equipment
    • Computers, switchboards, power-boards, etc.
  • Class F – Cooking Oils and Fats
    • Cooking oils and fats usually found in industrial kitchens etc.

Emergency Lighting

Emergency Exit Sign

Exit and Emergency Lights are a critical part of the life? safety system within a building. Emergency Lighting consists of light units and illuminated exit signs used to guide occupants along a safe exit route in the case of an emergency.

The three main types of Emergency Lighting systems are:

  • Non-maintained – the light units will only illuminate when connection to the main power supply fails.
  • Maintained – the light units are illuminated at all times using the same lamps for both normal and emergency operation.
  • Sustained – the light units are fitted with two sets of lamps, one connected to the main power supply and the other which operates from a battery supply in the event of a main power failure.

Emergency lighting is required to be inspected, tested and serviced at regular intervals to ensure that all lights are functional in the case of an emergency.

To test an emergency lighting system, we simulate a main power failure on the normal lighting circuit or individual lighting units, which will then force the system to operate using the battery supply.

We sell and service multiple brands of emergency lighting. Our technicians carry an extensive collection of batteries, bulbs, and replacement parts so that we can fix your equipment on the spot.
