Do you know how many people die from tragic fire accidents every year? -180,000 deaths!
If you’re a business owner, you will definitely think of installing a fire fighting system to protect your employees and the property structure, right?! – A reliable fire suppression and alarm system is the first step to avoid any potential injuries or drastic property damages. At Team Work Holding, we will help you choose the right fire fighting system, suitable for your business or home.
Water is the cheapest, most important, and most effective medium for fire fighting, as well as being environment-friendly. Any industry that deals with flammable liquids and chemicals must focus on water fire systems due to their indispensable importance. The operation of any water-based fire system and its optimal performance depends completely on the presence of an adequate water supply. At Team Work Holding, our experts analyze your building, design, and install the most suitable water fire system, having a precise eye for details.
Fire Sprinkler System is an efficient part of any fire protection system, serving as the first line of defense against sudden fires. A fire sprinkler system provides enough water to suppress the flames before going out of control. They offer safe protection, giving extra time for a safe evacuation of the building. These wet pipe systems have proven their worth in controlling hazards without extensive damages. Our sprinklers come in different designs, depending on the pressure, time of response, droplet size, and more.
So, how do sprinkler systems work? – When a blaze ignites, the air starts to heat quickly, rising towards the ceiling, and hence, triggering the sprinkler system. The system consists of a glass bulb, filled with a glycerin liquid, which expands on contacting high temperature. When the liquid expands, it shatters the glass and activates the sprinkler, which is connected to a water source. The pipe system includes pressurized water, which springs out when heat occurs, submerging the flames and avoiding the re-ignition.
A fire pillar hydrant is a vital part of any fire protection system, offering a connection point that accesses a water source in time of need. It is a column-shaped structure that provides pressurized water to aid firefighters during the whole process of fire extinguishing. Fire pillar hydrants must be available and equally spaced in public areas, drawing the necessary quantity of water. Although they may not operate for a long time, they must be tested continuously to guarantee their efficiency if a fire breaks out suddenly. If needed, firefighters use a wrench to remove the valve cover, and then, water flows into the hose, attacking the flames.
The Fire reel hose Cabinet is a steel box placed in public areas and buildings, used to store the required fire equipment. It is designed to protect the fire hose rack assembly, fire extinguisher, and fire hose reel against theft and rubbish. With high-quality steel, easy installation, and small occupation, the fire hose cabinet is a must in any building or corporation.
Water-Fire Extinguisher is a cost-effective and most powerful way to attack Class A fire, caused by solid materials such as paper, wood, and more. A water extinguisher operates by spraying a jet of water at the firebase, cooling the flames, and avoiding the re-ignition.
Whether you have a small, medium-sized, or large business, your workplace needs an effective alarm system that complies with the fire and safety codes. Fire Alarms give an early warning before the flames go out of control, protecting lives and property. If you think fire alarms aren’t important think again! In case of a sudden fire, a few more seconds can be enough to save lives. Multi-story buildings must have an alarm system fitted on every floor to detect smoke and break into sirens in case of emergency. Yes, an alarm system can’t suppress a fire but can alert the responsible to react accordingly. At Team Work Holding, we provide affordable, high-quality fire alarm systems to protect your business or residence place.
A Beam Detector is a device that operates by detecting smoke using a projected light beam. The optical beam detector doesn’t work until the smoke reaches the device mounted to the ceiling. The detector is attached to an alarm system. Once the device senses an interruption in the light beams, the alarm goes off. The beam detector is installed in places with high ceilings such as movie theaters, basketball courts, and more.
If a solid object interrupts the light beam for just a few seconds, nothing will happen. But, if the time exceeds 6 to 8 seconds, a false alarm will break out. A beam detector can tell the difference between a solid material or smoke depending on the blocked IR light ray percentage.
Manual Call Point, also known as “MCP,” is a plastic square box that exists in every building. It is an activation device that can trigger a fire alarm system manually, sending sirens as an alert of fire presence. The MCP must be clearly visible in the building at a reachable height level. There must be a manual call point every 30 meters to reach easily in the time of an emergency. Once it is activated, the sirens break out, giving people the chance to leave the building until the firefighters arrive.
A Fire Alarm control panel operates by detecting smoke when a change in electric current occurs. The Panel consists of different zones of the building, with flashing LEDs that indicate the presence of fire. The alarm control panel is connected to various sensors that identify any change in electric current, triggering the fire alarm. It operates by lighting up the zone attacked by fire. One drawback to the Alarm Control Panel; it indicates the zone using illuminated icons, but can’t determine the precise location.
The Alarm Bell is an important part of any fire protection system to alert the occupants of fire presence, giving time for a safe evacuation. A fire alarm is usually connected to fire sprinklers and fire alarm systems to operate effectively during an emergency. It operates by pressing a simple switch that causes audible stimuli, notifying the presence of fire danger.
A conventional Heat Detector is a powerful fire protection device that operates quickly when sensing a rapid temperature increase. In case of an emergency, the heat detector sends a signal to the Control Panel, allowing a safe evacuation until the fire department operates. It detects currents of heated air, combustion products, and radiation effect.
The Horn and Strobe device is a sound & light device that indicates fire presence through both sirens and beaming lights. This device is designed to be a part of reliable emergency evacuation and fire alerting systems in hotels, hospitals, and public facilities. The Horn sends a high-pitched sound for a quick evacuation while the Strobe flashes lights for those with hearing impairment. The beaming lights can also act as guidance for the residents through the smoke during a safe evacuation. The Strobe must be installed in the hallways, restrooms, and corridors, making sure to be clearly visible.
Smoke Detector is the fastest and most reliable way to detect fires, sensing the smoke and operating immediately. It detects smoke presence within the first minutes, which helps in controlling fire before it drastically spreads. Another advantage; it detects low-energy fires that emit a small amount of heat more than any other fire detectors.
But what is the Difference between Heat and smoke detectors in alarm systems?
The gas protection system operates effectively in places, where normal extinguishing agents such as water and foam can be dangerous. This system is usually used in places with electric equipment such as computer centers, electric switch rooms, and engine testing laboratories. The principle of this fire system is that gases absorb heat and weakens the fire by reducing the oxygen concentration, smoldering the flames.
A Kitchen hood operates by releasing wet chemical agents in the presence of cooking fires. These agents react effectively with the greases, resulting in a harmless foam layer that suppresses the fire and avoids re-ignition. A kitchen hood is the perfect fit in protecting hoods, appliances, and the surrounding area from the fire ravages.
NOVEC gas system operates by removing heat quickly to suppress fires through a fluid pressurized with nitrogen. Actually, it is a clean extinguishing agent that puts out the fire safely without any electronic damage. It is also safe for people, making it ideal in closed occupied areas. Unlike any other suppression agents, the NOVEC system operates by removing heat, not oxygen to attack fires. These clean agents have proven their worth in combating Class A, B, and C fires.
Like the NOVEC gas system, FM-200 is a clean agent that attacks Class A, B, and C fires effectively. The gaseous fire agent is colorless, odorless, environment-friendly, and totally safe, making it perfect in closed areas with no risks. It operates by removing heat from the ravaging fires to control the flames. The only difference between NOVEC and FM-200 gas systems is that NOVEC is stored in liquid form while FM-200 is stored in a gaseous state.
Inergen gas systems are environmental and user-friendly fire extinguishing systems. The system is designed to quickly detect smokes and put out any threatening fire. With its unique features, the INERGEN gas system doesn’t cause any harm to the residents or equipment of the property. Composed of various breathable gases, including nitrogen, argon, and carbon dioxide, the system doesn’t cause any breathing difficulties to people. The system has been medically acclaimed to be among the best systems in the world. It helps keep oxygen levels stable during fires, making mental performance rates stay within the normal. The gas system ensures residents a safe escape from harmful fires.
C02 fire suppression systems are the most suitable for areas with flammable storage or generator rooms and power stations. The system requires to be installed in areas with no or fewer residents as it emits CO2 gas to suppress any fire. Being a colorless and odorless gas, the system is beneficial for keeping the efficiency of gadgets and equipment stored in any given room. CO2 gas won’t leave any residue in the space where the fire occurs for an easy clean up after the fire has been put out. The system is efficient as it lowers the rates of Oxygen, a fire stimulating gas, in the air. It also has some helping agents to reduce the heat of the room to help put out the fire. That way, the system eliminates the risk of spreading the fire and extinguishes it.
Aerosol fire suppression systems put out threatening fires by releasing micro agents and gases that help reduce fires. The system contains micro-particles in a vapor state until released from the device. Through some chemical chain reactions, the condensed vapor is released in a state of solid particles. Aerosol systems reduce the inflaming heat and oxygen in the air which helps eliminate harmful fires. The fire suppression system is effective in putting out class A, B, and C fires. An important note though is that the fire shouldn’t be installed in any residential or inhabited areas. Aerosol systems pose a threat to living beings as they could cause visual impairments or breathing difficulties.
Water Mist system is one of the types of fire suppression systems that operates by discharging fine water mists to combat fires. The smaller the water droplet, the more effective it will be in fire suppression. It is a safe alternative to carbon dioxide systems, which are dangerous to health. Water mist systems have low, medium, and high pressure, each is effective in different fire applications, with minimum water damage. The small droplets cool the flames, displacing oxygen by evaporation and attenuating heat to avoid re-ignition.
The foam fire fighting system operates by separating the fuel from oxygen, forming a foam blanket of small air bubbles. The foam consists of three ingredients mixed in a certain proportion, which are water, foam, and air. This foam blanket avoids flammable vapors release, avoiding any further chemical reactions, smothering the flames. At the same time, it works on separating the flames from the product surface, avoiding re-ignition after a while.
