Warringtonfire recognizes the needs of clients in regard to the development of property protection and operational continuity strategies to adequately address the risk fire and explosion poses to their personnel and business.
The fire systems contracting industry faces challenges in developing fire system designs which sit outside of the established design codes, whether this relates to fire detection or fire suppression.
The development of more advanced business processes and equipment and the resulting increased lead in times to replace bespoke equipment has resulted in more specific and bespoke fire engineering design needs. These often sit outside of the parameters of the established British and international fire system design codes.
warringtonfire has considerable experience in this area of fire system design and development and has worked with some the of the world's largest businesses to review their systems and develop fire safety management and fire protection concept designs to suite their specific needs.
warringtonfire has a wealth of experience in bespoke fire system design and has worked on the following project types:
- Gas fired combined cycle power stations
- Biomass power stations
- Waste to Energy power generation such as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) and reactor organic growth systems
- Waste recycling
- Aerospace manufacturing
- Particle board manufacturing
- Research laboratories
- Automotive manufacturing and component testing
- Fire system design process
The fire system design process typically involves warringtonfire's protection engineering consultants working closely with client designated management and design teams to establish the key process risks and pinch points within their system. This review, sometimes undertaken as a series of Qualitative Design Review workshops, allows the risks from fire and explosion to the business to be identified and quantified in regards to frequency and severity, and for a risk matrix dedicated to the business’ specific needs to be developed.
Based on this information, warringtonfire is then able to use its expertise in fire system design to develop complex detection and suppression systems with detailed operational interfaces.
The use of both automated and manual systems forms a key part of the approach and the required site management response to a situation is also documented as part of the strategy.
This way, a bespoke and joined up approach involving fire systems and people is achieved.
