Fire suppression systems stop the worst from happening
Fixed automatic fire suppression systems combat fires as they are developing. Depending on the application, their detectors can immediately detect flames, sparks, smoke and heat. They thus offer reliable protection for machines, IT systems, buildings and the storage of flammable materials. Since automatic fire suppression systems are highly efficient, they can help prevent production downtimes.

Comprehensive service for fire suppression systems
The need for fire suppression systems
Fixed fire suppression systems are used to protect both people and property. They may be used in data centres, production and storage facilities, hospitals and even for individual high-quality processing equipment and electrical switchboards. In most cases, special building regulations defined by the country, authorities and property insurers require automatic fire suppression systems. These systems are frequently part of the fire safety and prevention design. Insurance companies will often compensate you for voluntarily investing in these systems. Our experts work together with insurance companies and the authorities in advance to provide you with the best value for your money. They would be happy to assist you both before and during the negotiations.
Installing fixed fire suppression systems
The specifications defined in DIN EN 12845, VdS 2092 and VdS CEA 4001 are essential in the planning and installation of the systems. VdS 2093 and VdS CEA 4007 need to be applied for CO2 systems. In addition, a risk analysis is required. Most importantly, the fire safety and prevention, electrical, sanitary and installation services need to work together so that these automatic fire suppression systems can be implemented. CWS Fire Safety’s cross-cutting service will help minimise the effort you need to put into coordinating them. When needed, we work with approved partners. Our designers and fitters independently manage the fire safety and prevention side in close collaboration with the client until final approval, including the fitter certificate and documentation.

Inspection and maintenance of fixed fire suppression systems
Each fire suppression system must be inspected before being put into operation in accordance with the BetrSichV. An approved inspection centre (i.e. a ZÜS) will be responsible for this. It will also be responsible for regular maintenance. The inspections must be documented (§ 17 BetrSichV). When it comes to maintenance and repairs, you are in the best of hands with us.
