Our comprehensive range of fire extinguishers, designed to tackle all types and classes of fire, means that we can always meet your specific needs.
Powder Fire Extinguishers (ABE)
The most commonly used type of fire extinguisher (and the kind most often found in the home), Powder Fire Extinguishers (ABE) can be used on Class A (paper, textiles, wood, rubber most plastics), Class B (flammable liquids), Class C (combustible gases) and Class E (electrically energised equipment) fires. Powder Fire Extinguishers (ABE) have a white band at the top and come in a range of sizes, making them suitable in a variety of different locations and applications.
Powder Fire Extinguishers (BE)
With slightly more limited use than the ABE style, Powder Fire Extinguishers (BE) are suitable for use on Class B (flammable liquids, including cooking oil fires) and Class E (electrically energised equipment) fires, and they operate by discharging a fine powder that absorbs fuel molecules so that a fire’s source of fuel is diminished. Powder Fire Extinguishers (BE) have a white band at the top.
Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers
Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers can be used on Class A (paper, textiles, wood, rubber, most plastics) and Class F (cooking oils or fat) fires. They discharge an aqueous solution in a fine spray, and this cuts off the air supply to a fire by creating a blanket of suds, which also prevents the release of flammable vapours. Wet Chemical Fire Extinguishers have an oatmeal band at the top.
MRI Fire Extinguishers
MRI Fire Extinguishers can be used for fires in environments where there is sensitive electronic equipment, such as servers or in data centres. A chemical is used that extinguishes fire but leaves no water damage or residue, and so causes limited harm to electronic equipment. Ideal for use in commercial and business premises, MRI Fire Extinguishers have a yellow band.
Water Fire Extinguishers
Water Fire Extinguishers are suitable for use on Class A (paper, textiles, wood, rubber, most plastics) fires. They are entirely red and do not feature a coloured band.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Extinguishers
Suitable for use on Class B (flammable liquids) and Class E (electrically energised equipment) fires, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Extinguishers use non-corrosive CO2 gas to extinguish fires by reducing the amount of oxygen available in the immediate environment. As carbon dioxide is non-conductive and non-corrosive, it doesn’t damage servers and other electronic equipment. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Extinguishers have a black band at the top.
Foam Fire Extinguishers (AFFF)
Foam Fire Extinguishers can be used on Class A (paper, textiles, wood, rubber, most plastics) and Class B (flammable liquids) fires, where the burning material or liquid is doused in foam that cuts off the fire’s air supply and prevents flammable vapours from being released. Foam Fire Extinguishers are marked with a blue band at the top.
Fire Sprinkler Systems
At Adelaide Fire Solutions, we are experts in the design and installation of automatic fire sprinkler systems, both in new builds and retrofits.
Our expertise in this field means that we can design and install cost-effective fire sprinkler systems for all types of premises and of all sizes, and our systems will not only meet your current needs but can also be easily modified should your requirements change in the future. We can also adapt and relocate exisiting fire sprinkler systems if your premises have undergone a change in set up or a reconfiguration.
Ideal for shops, restaurants and other commercial premises, as well as residential buildings, our fire sprinkler systems all comply with the Building Code of Australia and relevant Australian Standards to ensure their safe and efficient operation.
Talk to us about our range of Adelaide fire sprinkler systems, including:
• wet systems
• dry systems
• deluge systems
• wall wetting systems
• fast response systems
We can also fit your premises with water, foam and gas suppression systems that are specially designed so as to provide further protection against the risk of fire.
Fire Hose Reels
Designed to combat Class A fire risks, fire hose reels provide an accessible and controlled supply of water. There are different styles of fire hose reel, each with different capabilities, and we can advise you as to which is the optimum set up for your premises, both to ensure maximum accessibility and coverage, and to meet statutory OH&S requirements and Australian Standards.
If you already have fire hose reels installed, Adelaide Fire Solutions can also undertake a fire risk assessment of your equipment to ensure that it is meeting your current needs, in terms of capacity, location, reach, etc.
Fire blankets are used to combat small class F fires (usually caused by burning cooking fats and oils), or to smother burning clothing, as they are designed to cut off the supply of oxygen to a fire. Any commercial premises where cooking takes place, such as restaurants, hotels, cafés and bars, as well as industrial and business premises, should all be equipped with fire blankets.
Adelaide Fire Solutions supplies businesses in Adelaide with high quality fire blankets manufactured to AS/NZS 3504 which are available in different sizes to meet your needs and are suitable for use in both commercial and residential premises. We also offer an advisory service as to the most appropriate and effective locations for your fire blankets.
It is important to remember that a fire blanket should never be re-used, and so if you have had recent cause to employ one, please get in touch and we can organise a replacement.
Accessories and other fire equipment
In addition to the above, Adelaide Fire Solutions is also able to supply a range of other fire equipment and accessories, including:
• portable fire extinguisher racks (ideal for when permanent storage or mounting of a fire extinguisher isn’t possible)
• fire extinguisher vehicle brackets
• fire extinguisher cabinets
• fire hose reel cabinets and covers
• emergency signage and labels
Smoke and Fire Detection Systems
At Adelaide Fire Solutions, we design and install fire and smoke detection systems that give you, your people and your premises early warning against fire risk — which can in some cases mean the difference between life and death.
Our systems detect heat, smoke and/or fire in all types of buildings and premises, and we have extensive expertise in designing detection systems to meet a variety of needs and applications. Our fire industry experience also means that we can advise you as to what is the most appropriate and effective smoke and fire detection system for your building(s), and then oversee its design, installation and activation.
Once your smoke and fire detection system has been installed, we can also ensure its ongoing efficiency and effectiveness through regular safety and maintenance checks, and upgrading where necessary in line with changing requirements and legislation.
Talk to us today about installing an Adelaide fire and smoke detection system in your business or commercial premises, and take advantage of our extensive experience to ensure that you have the most cost-effective solution to meet your needs.
Special Hazards Fire Protection
Special Hazards Fire Protection is required in a variety of different premises and industries where sprinklers may not be an appropriate option, such as where flammable liquids are used, vital electronic equipment and servers are located, or valuable documents are stored — anywhere where the use of more conventional fire prevention and firefighting methods may not be suitable.
Adelaide Fire Solutions specialises in Special Hazards Fire Protection, and we design, install and commission customised systems to meet your specific needs. We can supply a range of solutions, including gas, wet and dry chemicals, and water mist suppression systems to prevent both combustion and the spreading of fires.
Talk to us to today to discuss your Adelaide Special Hazards Fire Protection needs, and how we can offer you a cost-effective solution to ensure ongoing fire prevention in your valuable property.
Fire Equipment Testing and Maintenance
It is both a legal requirement — and sheer good sense — to have a regular testing and maintenance programme in place for all of your fire equipment, fire sprinklers and smoke detection systems.
Adelaide Fire Solutions is able to offer a comprehensive testing and maintenance programme for business and industries of all sizes, to ensure that your fire equipment and systems are compliant, functioning, and capable of doing the job they were designed for — keeping you safe.
Our Adelaide on-site fire equipment testing service means that we can come to you, reducing downtime and inconvenience, and ensuring that all bases are covered. Our services include the testing of:
• portable fire extinguishers
• fire hose reels
• fire sprinkler systems
• smoke and fire detection systems
• exit and emergency lighting
We also provide an ongoing and comprehensive maintenance programme that ensures that all equipment and systems are tested at regular intervals and conform to the Australian Building Code and appropriate Australian Standards, so that you remain compliant and able to respond effectively should an emergency situation arise.
As part of this process, we provide all of the necessary reports and documentation, including Certificates of Compliance, to ensure that you are managing your fire assets efficiently, as well as reviewing your Evacuation & Emergency plans so that they are up to date and in line with current requirements.
