Special risks include any site where its contents are either highly flammable and/or highly valuable and sensitive - in these cases the traditional automatic fire sprinklers are not enough to provide the level of protection needed. For example waste recycling plants, power stations, metal forgeries, art galleries, biofuel production plants and electronic data centres.
Our design and installation teams ensure that all special risk applications are matched with the appropriate system for the job. Some special risk fire protection systems use suppression agents that don’t cause damage to the assets it’s protecting, e.g. gas suppression in electronic data archives, whereas others use foam suppression to rapidly smother highly flammable liquid and chemical fires, e.g. those found in the oil and gas industry and at airports.
