What are Fire Protection Services and Why Do You Need Them?

Fires are one of the most devastating occurrences known to man. Just one instance can take away thousands and even millions worth of valuable property and worse, injure and claim the lives of numerous individuals. It is for this reason that building fire protection systems and services are so crucial. By establishing these systems, countless lives and property are saved from the danger and destruction of fires.

Fire Protection Services

At Glenco, while we are certified Sydney electricians, we are also fully equipped to maintain your fire protection systems. As experienced electrical contractors in Sydney, we are able to provide a slew of services that cover the three main components of fire protection: passive, active and education.

The Three Components of Fire Protection

Fire protection is essentially the practice of eliminating the occurrence of fires and the negative effects that come with them. It involves three main components:

• Passive – this pertains to the installation and maintenance of protective structures that can limit the spread of fire, smoke and high temperatures.

• Active – this pertains to the detection and suppression of fires through various means, such as detection systems and sprinkler systems.

• Education – this pertains to the education and training of all persons involved regarding the passive and active fire protection measures and how these contribute to the execution of a fire safety plan.

Here at Glenco we are able to deliver on all components by providing safety audits; building maintenance programs; fire detection systems; fire pumps, blankets, extinguishers and other suppressors; appliance and equipment tagging and testing; and so much more.

Apart from ensuring the safety of all occupants and property within a building, these services are deemed necessary for the compliance of national building codes and fire code standards.
