The Society wanted a simple, unobtrusive form of fire detection for the inside of the aircraft, with the control panel mounted remotely, alongside other fire detection equipment in the hangar. EMS Group’s 5000 FirePoint wire-free analogue fire system was the perfect solution and easily met the requirements of the project. In contrast, a traditional solution using fire-rated cable would have been costly and difficult to install without altering the original interior of this historic aircraft. The system will be installed by EMS Group’s local partner Global Fire Services.

5000 FirePoint smoke sensors are based on established industry designs, have no external aerials and have built-in battery packs with a typical 5-year life. System wide power management facilities and advanced in-device electronics ensures battery replacement can be scheduled within normal maintenance routines, reducing operational costs. The elimination of expensive fire-rated cable means that EMS Group’s wire-free sensors can be typically installed in less than 10 minutes.

Maintaining your machinery

If your machinery isn’t maintained or checked, it may malfunction. If a malfunction occurs, the equipment may go awry, the equipment may overheat and subsequently cause a fire. Along with your machinery, your fire alarm systems and protection should regularly be maintained and checked, so as to ensure it will still adequately function in the case of a fire outbreak. So make sure your fire alarm system is regularly serviced and maintained!

Manufacturing Fire Safety Emergency Procedures

Fire drills where loud machinery and equipment are being operated, are often difficult to carry out. You will need the right alarm system that can be heard over these. However, drills must be carried at least once a year. All full time and temporary members of staff should be aware of the full evacuation process. If your staff are more experienced in fire procedures, the smoother the evacuation process! Additionally, staff need to understand how to use the fire protection equipment available. To get your staff confident with the use of the fire protection equipment, get them fire warden trained!
