Why You Need a Fire Suppression Systems for Your Office?

An increasing number of office buildings in Johannesburg Gauteng and Nelspruit Mpumalanga are upgrading to clean agent suppression systems to fight fires. Because of the many computers and electronics found in office environments, clean agent suppression is often a superior fire extinguishing option. This way, you don’t have to trade fire damage for water damage.

Fire Suppression System

What Is Clean Agent Fire Suppression?

Clean agents are electrically non-conductive gaseous substances used to extinguish fires. They put out flames by inhibiting the combustion process that requires heat, oxygen, and a fuel source. The systems are fundamentally designed to protect irreplaceable assets and the people around them. A clean agent fire suppression system will take either an inert gas or a chemical that is stored in a container and discharge it, when necessary, to extinguish a fire in its incipient stage. For instance clean agents are most effective when combined with an early fire detection system. This allows the agents to control a fire in its initial stage before it has a chance to spread.

Types of Clean Agent Systems

Bizzy Fire Control installs and services the following clean agent systems in Gauteng and Mpumalanga office buildings:

FM-200: This is one of the most popular clean agents because its non-ozone depleting and safe to use in occupied spaces. While FM-200 does displace the oxygen around a fire, its primary extinguishing capabilities is through heat absorption. FM-200 is effective for fighting Class A, B, and C fires.

CO2: A carbon dioxide system uses a high concentration of CO2 gas to replace the oxygen in a room and smother a growing fire. It’s highly effective, but not appropriate in places where people are present.

INERGEN: This clean agent uses a combination of argon, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide gases to fight fires in an environmentally friendly way. Just like FM-200, it also won’t deplete the ozone or hurt the environment.

3M NOVEC Fire Protection Fluid: The most eco-friendly chemical clean agent available. It extinguishes fires with minimal collateral damage and cleanup, and does so with zero ozone-depleting potential and a global warming potential of just one.

Why Use Clean Agent Suppression Systems in Office Buildings?

Offices that use clean agent suppression enjoy the following advantages:

Fast response time: Clean agents smother fires quickly, often suppressing the flames in 10 seconds or less.

Limited property damage: With no water required and no particle residue left behind, a clean agent suppression system is perfect for protecting your office from fire without risking damage to your equipment.

Less downtime: The time between when a fire ignites and when you can return to business as usual is brief with a clean agent suppression system. Little to no cleanup is required, and your electronics should be unaffected by the clean agents.

5 POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARDS TO PREVENT IN YOUR BUILDING?

Are you protecting your commercial building from the potential hazards of a fire? There are five common fire safety risks that occur most often in commercial buildings and offices.

Fire Safety in Building

NON-OPERATIONAL OR LACK OF SAFETY EQUIPMENT

If your fire safety equipment is in disrepair, has not been tested, or has not had routine maintenance performed recently, it can put you and everyone in your office at risk. Your fire safety equipment, including fire alarms, sprinkler systems, fire suppression systems, etc., need to be tested annually to ensure they are fully operational. Additionally, if fire safety equipment is not available, specifically operational fire extinguishers, then you are leaving your building at risk. Having easily accessible fire safety equipment (and instructing your employees on how to use it) is one of the best ways you can help reduce safety risks in your office.

Additionally, if fire safety equipment is not available, specifically operational fire extinguishers, then you are leaving your building at risk. Having easily accessible fire safety equipment (and instructing your employees on how to use it) is one of the best ways you can help reduce safety risks in your office.

LACK OF SAFETY TRAINING & EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN

Installing an exceptional fire safety system will do very little if your employees don’t know what to do in the unlikely event of an emergency. Training your employees on how to use fire extinguishers and where to go during an emergency is crucial for complete safety. Additionally, it’s important to train your employees on what to do in the event of an emergency. Having an emergency action plan that details where to do, what to do, and who is in charge in the event of an emergency is vital and can be lifesaving.

IMPROPERLY DESIGNED & INSTALLED SAFETY SYSTEMS

Not only does your building need fire safety equipment, it needs to be installed properly and to the exact specifications and requirements of your building (while also meeting all SABS standards and regulations). Your fire protection needs may differ from one area of your building to the next—for instance, if you have a commercial kitchen in a hotel, the fire suppression system used in the kitchen would be different from the fire suppression system used in the guest rooms. Bizzy Fire Control can explain all of the differences between various types of fire protection equipment and systems and help you make an educated decision.

IMPROPER USE OF OFFICE EQUIPMENT

There are many ways that people in your office will put themselves at risk, including misusing extension cords, using damaged power cords, and misusing space heaters. All of this equipment needs to be carefully monitored and used correctly to prevent the threat of fire and damage to personnel and the building.

Extension cords need to be properly approved by a certifying laboratory and only used to connect one device at a time. Power cords should be checked periodically for any damage or ungrounded cords. Personal space heaters must be plugged directly into an outlet and cannot be plugged into an extension cord or power strip.

BLOCKED SPRINKLER HEADS

Your fire sprinklers are an integral part of your fire safety equipment, but if tall equipment is blocking the sprinkler head directly or objects are obstructing the spray of the sprinkler, you could be putting your office at risk. Nothing should ever be placed within 18 inches of your fire sprinkler. If you are unsure whether or not you are using your fire safety equipment in the safest manner possible, it’s important to talk to a fire protection company like Bizzy Fire Control to learn more about proper office fire safety.

What Can You Do to Help Prevent Office Fires?

How can you prevent these potential fire safety risks from posing a threat in your office? You need to have a fire protection company come to your building and assess your current fire safety equipment and educate you and your employees about the best fire safety practices and what upgrades or repairs need to be made to any existing equipment—and if any additional equipment is required.

When to inspect fire hydrant?

SABS standards require that all public fire hydrants be inspected on an annual basis. Fire hydrants can be affected by a number of outside factors, including regular wear-and-tear, accidental damage, vandalism, or mechanical function. If your Johannesburg or Nelspruit building’s fire hydrant needs inspection, call Bizzy Fire Control today. Our SAQCC certified and trained technicians can ensure that your fire hydrant stays up to standard and will be able to protect you and your business in the event of a fire.

Fire Hydrant

Fire Hydrant Inspection Process

At Bizzy Fire Control, our fire hydrant inspection process is designed to ensure that your building’s fire hydrant meets all proper standards. There are three main steps in our process:

We start by opening your fire hydrant fully and letting it flow for at least a full minute. This clears all foreign material out of the fire hydrant and lets it run as smoothly as possible.

After stopping the flow we observe the fire hydrant and make sure it drains properly.

In conclusion, we lubricate all fire hydrant stems, threads, and caps to make sure they are in proper operating condition and will be easily accessible to the fire department.

Is your Johannesburg or Nelspruit building’s fire hydrant ready for inspection? Call Bizzy Fire Control today to make sure your hydrant is up to standard and able to protect you in the event of a fire.

Why Fire Hydrant Inspections?

The purpose of a fire hydrant is to provide firefighters with a reliable source of water to tap into should a blaze break out in your building. For instance this makes fire hydrants a vital part of the community’s fire protection system, yet it’s easy to overlook the importance of maintaining and repairing these fixtures. Here are the top reasons to make this an annual priority for your business:

Verify safe operation: Common safety issues with fire hydrants include water leaks, missing parts, rusted bolts, broken couplings, loose nozzles, and other parts in need of repair or replacement. An inspection addresses these safety issues to ensure proper operation if it ever becomes necessary to tap into the hydrant for firefighting purposes.

Ensure reliable performance: A flow test during a fire hydrant inspection determines if any issues exist that could interfere with the fixture’s ability to help fight a fire. Such issues might include seized operating nuts or caps, low flow caused by partially closed valves, and poorly lubricated parts. Even the fire hydrant’s location is an important consideration in terms of accessibility when firefighters arrive at the scene.

Check the water flow: A flow test ensures adequate water pressure in all areas of the system. Places with significantly lower flow could have partially closed valves, a problem that can only be identified during a fire hydrant inspection.

Remove sediment from the system: Dirt, rust, and other debris in your fire hydrant lines could affect performance. A system flush during a fire hydrant inspection clears this sediment from the system.

Avoid liability issues: If your building succumbs to a fire and you haven’t kept up with annual fire hydrant inspections, you could be in for a nasty surprise when the neglected fire hydrant fails to serve its purpose. This could leave you liable for the damages to your building since your insurance company can cite neglect as a reason to deny coverage. Of course, the damage is also likely to be higher if firefighters can’t tap into the hydrant to help extinguish the fire, resulting in an expensive twofold setback for your business.
