Where the principle of proactive prevention rather than cure applies, fire suppression systems are an essential part of a fire engineering solution.

From the protection of high value assets to business critical systems or processes (e.g. server rooms, switch rooms, printing presses, autoclaves), gaseous fire suppression systems offer a solution which will not damage the asset it is designed to protect and  is safe for use in occupied areas.

Gaseous fire suppression systems can be designed for local application or total area/room flooding and are divided into two categories; Inert Gases and Chemical agents.

Inert gas fire suppression systems use one or a blend of Argon, Nitrogen and Carbon Dioxide (CO2), and provide a natural way to extinguish a fire, by displacing the air and reducing the Oxygen to a concentration level where combustible materials can no longer burn.

Chemical agents are blended synthetic gases, which work by cooling and absorbing heat to extinguish a fire. Similar to refrigerants, chemical agents are stored as a liquid at relatively low pressure and need only a small concentration, therefore require less cylinders.

Wet Chemical fire suppression systems are also available, and typically installed within Restaurants & Hotels to provide a robust solution for tackling fires across the canopy, extract ductwork or range equipment of a commercial kitchen.

Whatever the risk, we have a wealth of experience in the design, installation and commissioning of fire suppression systems to suit.

In addition to our fixed fire suppression solutions, we are also able to supply and maintain a full range of Water, Dry Powder, CO2 and Foam portable Fire Extinguishers, fire blankets and signage.

Coronavirus Update

Dear Valued Customer,

I would like to take this opportunity to update you as to the steps SFA have been taking to ensure day to day operations continue with as little disruption as possible whilst ensuring the safety of our staff.

We have been closely monitoring the situation and taken measures to minimise the impact this unprecedented event may have on our stakeholders, customers and business.

We have taken appropriate measures to keep our people safe by reducing headcount and introducing distancing within the office, implementing additional cleaning measures and non-contact equipment deliveries, plus implementing home working where possible.

All training sessions and non-essential site meetings have been cancelled or postponed at this time, and video conferencing facilities have been setup.

We will continue to monitor the situation and endeavour to update you as soon as possible, should we need to make further adjustments.

Our thoughts are with everyone already affected by the Coronavirus, and we would also like to extend our gratitude and thanks to all the Healthcare and supporting keyworkers working tirelessly during this time.

We all have a responsibility to care for and support our colleagues and communities, and I am in no doubt that we will get through this stronger together.

Many thanks
