Industrial Manufacturing

To understand fire risks in industrial manufacturing, you must understand fire hazards within this environment. Best practice fire system design and fire protection services are an absolute minimum in fire and essential services within this scenario.

Considering the types of machinery, materials, chemicals and space needed to optimise an industrial manufacturing production factory or plant, a fire will prove catastrophic, so the highest level of fire safety expertise, system design, ongoing maintenance and service delivery must be obligatory.

Fire science

A detailed level of industry and fire science knowledge is essential to develop an effective fire system design. The new Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS) strengthens fire safety accreditation for new and existing buildings.

The FPAS process is a meticulous one. Individuals must define the scope of their work, identify the system requirements and prepare detailed technical design documentation and the specific equipment required.

This skill extends beyond fire extinguishers and fire alarms. It requires specialised expertise that integrates fire system technology with fire prevention and protection equipment unique to the particular environment.

Industrial manufacturing risks

Manufacturing and production plants deal with variable, high-fire-risk components. If not from the materials used at the factory or the chemicals required to process the materials, it could be as simple as the machinery’s temperatures during production.

Factories are also legally required to facilitate adequate ventilation systems for the summer and winter months and to improve airflow within a factory environment. Oxygen is necessary for a fire to burn, a simple oversight that could have catastrophic consequences.
