Frequently Asked Questions
An automatic fire suppression system is a frontline safety system fitted to protect a machine or specific area at risk of experiencing a fire. It is comprised of a detection system, control and monitoring system, actuation system and a distribution network which delivers the fire suppressant to the risk area. Most systems are also fitted with manual actuation capability.
The cost of a fire suppression system is very much dependent on the size of the risk area requiring protection, and the scope of requirement. By carrying out a full fire risk assessment with all key stakeholders, a system can be configured specifically to its defined risk profile. It is not a one-size-fits-all solution.
Under the Australian Standard AS5062:2022, fire suppression systems must be installed by a competent person who has acquired the relevant skillset through education, training, qualification, experience, or a combination of all four. Ensure that the person/s working with your fleet fire suppression systems are suitably qualified and reputable.
Fire systems should be checked daily by operators to ensure there are no faults and that the system is not visibly damaged. Scheduled maintenance by suitably competent fire providers is required 6 monthly, yearly, and 5 yearly. In some harsh applications servicing frequency may be increased to 3 monthly.
Pre-engineered fire suppression systems are designed to detect a fire automatically, which in turn activates the system. The alarm panel then provides both visual and audible alerts to ensure operators/personnel are aware of the situation. Once activated, the agent/s are then discharged into the risk area to suppress the flames.
