ImageWaterless Fire Suppression Systems
Waterless fire suppressant is a clean gaseous agent that is activated automatically in the event of a fire, the gas floods the area exstinguishing the Fire; the gas doesn't leave any oily residues, particulates, water or corrosive material. This virtually eliminates damage to high-tech equipment, archives, paper, Artwork, mission critical installations and other delicate and sensitive objects

CO2 systems are ideal for unmanned applications such as electrical installations, transformer rooms, generators and switchgear.



FM-200 waterless fire suppressant is a clean agent and can be used in manned environments like serve rooms

Argonite is an inert gas blend of argon and nitrogen, which occur naturally in the environment.

Room Integrity Testing

ImageEnclosures protected by gaseous fire suppression systems should tested for air-tightness upon commissioning of the system and annually thereafter. .

Our commitment to use state of the art testing equipment assures you will receive the most accurate information available. A fan test performed by us gives you the peace of mind of knowing the fire suppression system will hold the concentration of agent as designed.

This is critical to ensure that the system will work effectively when activated; too much air-leakage will result in the concentration of the fire suppressant agent falling too quickly

ImageElectric Fencing
Electric security fencing is still one of the most effective forms of physical security, combining a strong deterring influence with the ability to monitor fence line activity twenty-four hours a day

The technology works quite simply by monitoring the voltage applied to a wire grid consisting of alternate live/live & live and earth wires. If an intruder cuts the wiring, tampers with or tries to climbs the fence an alarm will activate.

All electric security fencing in South Africa is Non-lethal, international standards have been developed to guide manufacturers of electric fence equipment this ensure compliance with these safety basics.
However although electrical fencing is Non-lethal, it can cause harm if not correctly installed.

There are generally two types of electric security fencing configurations.
Fence/Wall top
This type of installation involves brackets, with insulates attached, that are fixed to the top of an existing wall or fencing structure, these brackets are range from three and can exceed twelve strands of electric fencing
