Special hazard fire suppression systems protect a diverse range of unique hazards and challenges that cannot be suitably protected by a conventional automatic sprinkler system. Special hazard fire protection systems include a wide array of fire suppression systems, fire detection systems, and control systems that are unique to specific facilities and processes. The design objectives of a special hazard fire suppression are tailored to the individual client and hazard through a comprehensive approach that considers the protection of assets, preservation of life safety, continuity of business processes, and protection of the environment.
Various legislative bodies have been examining or have begun to phase out of Per- and Polyfluorinated Substances (PFAS) contained in firefighting foam products due to environmental, health, and safety considerations. Although various PFAS-free foam products are available, it is important to understand that they are not a drop-in replacement. An engineering evaluation must be conducted due to the difference in firefighting and hydraulic performance of PFAS-free firefighting foam products.
Fire alarm design is a crucial aspect of fire safety in buildings and structures. The primary objective of a fire alarm system is to provide early warning to building occupants in the event of a fire, giving them enough time to evacuate the premises safely and notify first responders as quickly as possible. The design of the fire alarm system must consider the specific needs of the building, with consideration to the number of occupants, the type of occupancy, and the building’s physical layout.FRA specializes in providing comprehensive fire safety solutions, including the design and implementation of fire alarm systems, integration with campus networks for mass notification, smoke control systems, and thorough design work to ensure the safety and security of all building occupants.
