Superior Fire Protection designs, installs, and services many types of Fire Equipment.
Some of the equipment types include:
Emergency lights are connected to a backup power source (battery or generator) for use during power outages. Emergency lighting will include all illuminating lights for path of egress, as well as illuminated exit signage. Typically these lights will be located in occupant areas, such as hallway commons, bathrooms, confined spaces, computer rooms, equipment rooms, etc. Windows do not eliminate the need for illumination, due to the fact occupants may be on site after day light hours.
Fire extinguishers are a supplemental form or first aid extinguishing tool, used to extinguish small fires. Fire extinguishers are placed throughout a building for small first response situations. They are not intended for firefighting applications.
Kitchen Hood Systems
Kitchen hood systems are mechanical pre-engineered wet chemical systems that work in conjunction with equipment for the removal of smoke and grease laden vapors. Kitchen hood systems are designed to provide fire protection for cooking appliances, hoods, and ducts. These systems have two ways to release the agent: manual operation or automatic actuation. The detection designed by the manufactures for these systems, heat detection, will automatically release at a pre-determined heat range; however, it is recommended that if there is a fire on an appliance, the first action taken is to pull the manual pull to release agent, and also shut down all fuel sources. The system suppresses fire by spraying the plenum area, filters, cooking surfaces, and exhaust duct with a low PH solution that will cool and extinguish the fire. The agent will also saponify, or foam up, to create an insulation barrier between the hot grease and air, thus helping to prevent the escape of combustible vapors.
Paint Booth Systems
This range or system design includes small industrial dry chemical systems that have been designed to protect industrial applications categorized as local application, tank side, total flooding, vehicle, and open front spray booths. The system is a pre-engineered design having predetermined flow rates, nozzle pressures, and quantities of dry chemical, or flow rates. The system is self-contained and uses dry chemical agents for fire suppression. The automatic activation of the system has three variations of release: mechanical release, pneumatic release, and electric release. The system can be released or actuated manually or automatically. Each system has a manual pull station for discharge.
Vehicle systems are designed for use on mobile and self-propelled equipment such as earth moving, land cleaning, forestry, farming, buses, and collection vehicles, to name a few. These systems are available in dry chemical and wet chemical suppression agents for extinguishing fires on mobile equipment. The system is designed with electric detection and actuation. System design works on a total flood application of hazards identified on each specific piece of equipment. The system has capability to operate in extreme weather and environment conditions that range from -65˚F to upwards of 140˚F.
