A functioning business may have all it's necessary ingredients to make the business a success. However, failing to have the necessary fire safety could accidentally bring it all to an abrupt halt.


Compressed Air Foam Systems

A compressed air foam system (CAFS) is a system used in fire fighting to deliver fire retardant foam for the purpose of extinguishing a fire or protecting unburned areas from becoming involved in flame.

A compressed air foam system is defined as a standard water pumping system that has an entry point where compressed air can be added to a foam solution to generate foam. The air compressor also provides energy, which, gallon for gallon, propels compressed air foam farther than aspirated or standard water nozzles.

Typical components include a centrifugal pump, a water source, foam concentrate tanks, a rotary air compressor, a direct-injection foam proportioning system on the discharge side of the pump, a mixing chamber or device, and control systems to ensure the correct mixes of concentrate, water, and air.

It is proven that CAFS attacks all three sides of the fire triangle simultaneously. The foam blankets the fuel, thereby reducing the fuel's capacity to seek out a source of oxygen. The CAFS solution adheres to ceilings and walls, more readily aiding in rapid reduction in heat. Also, the opaque surfaces of the foam, as it adheres to walls and ceilings, shield the fuel source from radiant energy. (Brooks, 2005; Brooks, 2006)

CAFS may also refer to any pressurized water style extinguisher that is charged with foam and pressurized with compressed air.

Gaseous Systems
Clean agent Protection for critical and invaluable assets.  
Cleaner - Safer - Quicker
Clean agent fire protection

Clean agent fire protection also known as Clean gas fire suppression or Nitrogen fire suppression provides high fire extinguishment efficiency in areas where conventional agents cannot be tolerated. The Compressed gas stops the spread of fire by chemically disrupting combustion. Inert gases and chemical agents mix with the air to reduce fuel, reduce heat and suppress fires quickly.

Active on fire and safe on people. Keep your business and its people safe today - retard and eliminate fires rapidly with Clean gas fire fighting systems.

Carbon dioxide fire protection

Carbon dioxide (CO2) fire extinguishing systems - colourless, odourless, highly effective and both readily available and electrically non-conductive. It extinguishes fire predominantly by effortlessly lowering oxygen levels that supports combustion in the protected area. This implementation of fire suppression makes CO2 suppression systems highly advantageous, requiring minimal clean-up, but should be used in generally vacant hazardous locations or otherwise avoided by personnel when discharged. CO2 suppression systems application may be through a total flooding approach but carbon dioxide is also the only gaseous agent that may be utilized through local application.
Conveyor Belt Fire Suppression Systems
Fest Fire Security supplies and services conveyor belt fire suppression systems
to protect assets and prevent the loss of time and money.  

The main cause of a conveyor belt fire is friction due to slippage of its belts. Fire hazards can also occur due to overheated motors, burning material or even incendiarism. Valuable time can be lost if a conveyor is shut down and unnecessary costs of replacing equipment can be avoided all together by having the right fire suppression systems.

Automatic fire detection and suppression systems installed on conveyor belts need to comply with various authorising bodies for example: NFPA, SANS, MHSA etc.
