Fire Extinguishers

A fire extinguisher in your home, garage, or workshop can mean the difference between a minor incident and a major disaster. You shouldn’t grab the first fire extinguisher you see at the store, though. You’ll want to conduct some pre-purchase research to ensure you choose one with the right fire extinguisher rating for your needs.

Tenant Improvements

Renovations are common in office buildings, hotels, schools, and retail parks. During renovations, your fire sprinkler system will almost always need to be redesigned to fit the new layout. This is necessary to ensure that, in the event of a fire, the new layout will provide the best possible coverage, with the fire sprinkler system functioning exactly as intended. If you have any questions about tenant improvement, please contact Automated Fire Protection right away to speak with a trained fire safety professional.

Hi-Ex & Lo-Ex Foam Systems

A foam deluge system that delivers the foam solution (foam concentrate and water mixture) to a discharge device known as a hi-ex foam generator is referred to as a high expansion foam system. Hi-Ex Foam concentrate and water are mixed in the proper proportions to form a foam solution using various methods. This solution flows to the Hi-Ex Foam Generator, which is powered by water, and is discharged through a nozzle onto a fine mesh stainless steel screen.

Electric & Diesel Fire Pump

During a fire, both electric and diesel fire pumps supply enough water to fire sprinklers throughout a facility. So, what exactly are the distinctions between electric and diesel fire pumps? The applications, maintenance and cost, and lifespan of electric and diesel fire pumps are some of the key differences.

Dry & Wet Standpipe System

A Dry Riser is a valve and pipe system that allows the Fire Department to pump water from an inlet valve outside the building to outlet valves within. They will enter the building with hoses and connect them to the proper outlet valve. Until the Fire Department fills the system with water, the pipes stay empty.

A Wet Riser is a system of valves and pipework that is continuously charged with water.

Dry Agent & NOVAC System

When a fire is detected early, our intelligence logic system protects people, the environment, and assets by automatically activating the gas-based fire suppression system. It is made up of natural and neutral chemical agents that combine gas and water. There are two types:

People and the environment are reliably protected by the innovative extinguishing agent. It is not corrosive or conductive, and it will not harm sensitive equipment. There are no transport restrictions because the agent is non-tonic, non-flammable, and non-explosive.

HFC 227 EA
This is a highly effective extinguishing agent with a low concentration. It is chemically inert and has no electric conductivity, making it suitable for use with electrical equipment. Because it is chemically stable, it can be used and stored repeatedly.

Inspection, Testing & Maintenance

The automatic fire sprinkler system in your commercial building is the first line of defense in the event of a fire, thus it’s a crucial fire safety feature. Fire sprinklers can help you put out a fire and keep it from spreading, while also protecting your employees and saving your business. So, how do you know your sprinklers will activate when they’re needed? How frequently should you inspect your sprinkler system? Fire sprinkler testing and maintenance must be performed on a regular basis.

Dry, Pre-action & Deluge System

Unpressurized dry pipes and open sprinkler heads are used in a deluge fire sprinkler system. It’s usually hooked up to a water supply. A valve is triggered when flames, heat, or smoke are detected, allowing all open sprinkler heads to release a “deluge” of water at once. This type of technology is particularly common among companies that have potentially hazardous goods and equipment in their rooms or huge spaces.

A deluge fire sprinkler system may be designed to release other materials, such as foam, dry chemicals, or inert gases, in addition to water, depending on the threats present and what is being protected.

Reg. 4 and Title 19 Inspections

The LAFD uses the Fire Chief’s Regulation No. 4 test, also known as “Reg 4”, to ensure enhanced fire safety in Los Angeles structures. Fire-related fatalities and property loss have decreased dramatically over the years thanks to precautions like these. A Reg 4 test is your chance to show your employees, tenants, or occupiers that proper fire safety precautions are being taken on their behalf. You’re not only getting a visit from a highly personable field agent with years of experience when you contract with Automated Fire Protection; you’re also creating a connection with one of Southern California’s most trusted fire protection contractors.

High Pile Storage Plan and Permit

The process of creating a safe warehouse does not end with the purchase of pallet racking or other industrial storage equipment. Warehouses and businesses who plan to stock merchandise over a certain height will need a High Pile Storage Permit.

Because Automated Fire Protection recognizes the ambiguity around permissions and licenses related to keeping and stocking high pile inventory, we’ve broken down everything you need to know about High Pile Storage Permits.

BIM Modeling & MEPS Coordination

The construction business has undergone many changes over the years, but the most recent ones may be the most significant in history. Traditionally, paper drawings were used for the majority of the construction process.

The development of 2D models in AutoCAD in the 1960s helped, but there were still issues connecting the 2D drawing to the 3D real-world object.

Fire Alarm design, Installation & Maintenance

The only thing worse than a building fire is a building fire that occurs without sufficient warning. A fire alarm system is a rapid-response system that notifies those in your building of an emergency so that they can leave as soon as feasible.

You are endangering the lives of your tenants if your property does not have a fire protection system. However, simply installing an alarm system will not ensure its good operation: it must be inspected and maintained on a regular basis.
