Fire Detection


Detection

The requirement to detect fire within vastly diverse environments has become a necessity. Therefore the implementation of the appropriate detection devices, coinciding with the correct installation and commissioning is vital. 

By ensuring all of the design and installation criteria are fulfilled, you can be confident your system performance is maximised.

 

There are many types of detection technologies for sensing and detecting the presence of smoke, heat or other early indications of fire. It is important that the correct technology is implemented in the correct manner to compliment your system, a good example of this is utilising aspirating systems in harsh environments where traditional point detection would fail.

Amelioration


Problems?

Amelioration


Problems?

By implementing our bespoke system analysis, and phased amelioration agreements, Southwest Fire and Security can guarantee you not only financial savings but increased productivity and restored confidence in your fire safety systems.

If you have you ever heard the words "you'll always have faults with a system this size" then you are with the wrong company.  No matter the size, or complexity of your fire alarm system, you should not have faults.  Yes, faults occur, but these need to be addressed as and when they develop.  A majority of faults originate from poorly installed, or incorrectly located components.  Its common to come across devices fitted that are not fit for purpose, using the wrong technology in the incorrect manner.

By instructing Southwest fire and security to carry out a bespoke amelioration plan, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that the agreed phased works will be completed with a schedule of progress and clear financial forecast, allowing your business to operate unhindered, yet in the knowledge your responsibility's are met.
