About Our Services
The following details the services that we offer in-house. All of our work and services are backed by a one-year warranty. Additionally, ideally all services are recommended annually to ensure that our clients are operating in a safe and compliant environment.
Backflow devices are installed to protect water supplies from contamination and pollution. Backflow prevention testing is an annually mandated requirement for all commercial water lines.
Emergency Lighting is a battery backed lighting device that illuminates exit routes during power outages to safe exiting. Effective emergency lighting will have a clear line of sight to stairs, escalators, aisles, corridors, and ramps leading to an exit.
Fire Alarm Systems
Fire alarm systems are a number of devices working in tandem to provide an early warning in a fire emergency. These systems are mandatory in buildings, industrial installations, markets, offices, living spaces, etc. to prevent and mitigate loss of building structures and, potentially, life.
Fire Extinguishers are designed to fight different types of initial fires to prevent further spread. The class system categorizes the appropriate extinguisher for a particular type burning material.
- Class A: Common Combustibles (Trash, Paper, Wood, Plastic, Cloth)
- Class B: Liquids (Kerosene, Gasoline, Oil, Propane, Paint)
- Class C: Electrical Equipment (Computers and Fax Machines)
- Class D: Combustible Metals (Magnesium, Titanium, Lithium)
- Class E: Cooking Media (Cooking Oils and Fats)
A fire hydrant is an exterior connection point to tap a water supply. It is absolutely necessary for fire department crews to have clear and direct access to a properly functioning hydrant. Access allows crews to blast water out to flamed areas.
A fire pump is needed to supply the flow and pressure demands to fire suppression systems when there is an inadequate water supply. The need for a fire pump should be decided early – ideally as a project scope is being developed.
Fire Sprinkler Systems
Sprinkler systems are designed to protect property and life in the event of a fire. They respond quickly to heat and can often control a fire before a responding fire department arrives. We are experienced in a full range of options including design. Additionally, we will advise clients regarding the features and limitations of each system type and will recommend a cost-effective solution that protects lives and property while minimizing future maintenance.
Kitchen Hood Systems
Kitchen hood systems are the first line of defense to preventing fires in a commercial kitchen. These systems are designed to remove heat and smoke vapors that are generated while cooking to keep a commercial kitchen running safely. NFPA requires all kitchen hood systems to be inspected routinely by a licensed fire protection company.
Special hazard fire suppression systems are typically used in areas where the facilities and assets need to be preserved or water damage would be expensive. These systems are ideal for data centers, museums, aircraft hangers, chemical and power plants, etc. Special hazard systems are designed uniquely for a specific space and do the following:
- Quickly detects an emerging fire or heat condition
- Alerts people to evacuate quickly
- Suppresses fires when fire sprinklers are not sufficient as the first and only source of fire protection
- Mitigates business loss and interruption
