Fire Suppression Systems

A fire suppression system has three functions: efficient detection of a fire, appropriate reaction to the size and type of fire, and effective application of an agent to suppress and extinguish the fire.

Total Fire Solutions are experienced in designing, installing and maintaining effective fire suppression systems that comply with Australian Fire Protection Standards and protect your plant equipment, premises and employees. We design, install and manage both fixed and portable fire supression systems. 

What is a Fire Suppression System?

A fire suppression system is an engineered system that includes built-in components that detect fires. They're used to prevent fires in plant equipment or buildings. These systems may combine dry chemicals, inert gases and water and foam solutions to suppress fires.

Suppression systems offer a wide range of protection levels which are not found with traditional fire sprinkler systems. There are five (5) different types of suppression systems:

1. Environmentally friendly Foam Deluge System

For chemical or fuel fires where using water would be hazardous. A foam/water mix provides blanket cover.

2. Dry chemical

Releases a dry chemical powder to extinguish the fire. Often used in overhead applications to protect large areas with multiple and varying obstacles .

3. Water Mist Systems

Improves traditional water sprinkler systems by producing ultra-fine water droplets. Used typically in closed areas to control Class C gas fires or high flow nozzles typically used to protect oil filled high voltage transformers.

4. Gaseous systems also known as "Clean Agent" systems

Typically used in computer and switch rooms with sensitive equipment that may be ruined by water. They reduce oxygen levels to smother or react chemically to break the combustion chain reaction.

5. Early warning detection systems

Uses infrared technology or air sampling systems most typically in sensitive areas to allow early, targeted action, such as shutting down the power to the area and the subsequent controlled discharge of the agent.

Fire Suppression Installation

Our experienced team of technicians, installers and design specialists follow this process:

  1. Perform risk-based assessment with all project stakeholders such as engineers, council, site engineers and equipment manufacturers to determine the needs of the area.
  2. Identify equipment required for efficient detection, appropriate reaction and effective application.
  3. Design in-house or with an external fire engineer. Measure performance of the system against design.
  4. Install system and provide ongoing maintenance.

Fire Equipment Servicing

It's important to keep your fire suppression system in top working condition so you can rely on it to respond properly in an emergency. We'll create a regular service schedule to keep your fire suppression equipment and system both compliant and safe.

We maintain all fire system brands and OEM equipment and where necessary, we conduct regular equipment updates and maintenance plus carry out any breakdown repairs that may arise.
