What is a Fire Protection System?

Fire protection systems are capable of both controlling and extinguishing fires, and can vary massively depending on your requirements and restrictions. Not having an adequate system in place is an enormous risk in terms of health and safety, as well as a risk financially and legally. As such, they’re one of the most important purchases you will make.

TransPro Systems is a specialist in Active Fire Protection Systems (AFPS).

Active Fire Protection

Active Fire Protection (AFP) takes a direct approach to tackling a fire emergency, and can be either manual (requiring human operation) or automated (triggered by environmental changes, as with a heat/smoke-activated water sprinkler). These systems are usually found in larger buildings and commercial properties where the risk of fire outbreaks is often greater or harder to control.

Examples of Active Fire Protection Systems include sprinkler systems, water mist systems, fire hydrants, fire extinguishers, inert gas systems, clean agent systems, and so on. Unsure what solution is best for you? Contact us
