Fixed Fire Suppression Systems are custom built systems installed right into a building, vehicle, or piece of equipment. They provide an automated and robust way to quickly suppress a fire, thus saving your investments before they are substantially damaged.
Fixed fire systems can be installed in a large variety of situations, from large switchboard areas as in the hospitality industry to atmospherically sensitive machine and plant sites, from dust laden mines and quarry engine rooms to temperature controlled electronic and computer rooms.
Our custom built and hand held fire suppression systems are also widely utilised in motor sport and related industries. We can design a system for most situations/industries.
Firewatch offers servicing throughout New Zealand, to make sure your fire protection equipment and systems keep working at their best.
Firewatch can provide qualified instructors to train those staff who may be required to act in an emergency, to recognize and take action to extinguish, or at least contain, control and lessen the effects of a small fire within the workplace using the hand held fire extinguishers until such time as the Fire Service arrives.
Firewatch can lease all your fire equipment, for those who prefer to do so.
