The White Rock Wind Farm is proposed to be constructed in two stages within the New England Tablelands region of New South Wales (NSW), Australia.
FirePro Systems specialises in condensed aerosol fire extinguishing technology for power applications.
The company has a distribution network in more than 75 countries, providing safety systems that save lives in more than 110 countries.
Products are manufactured under strict internationally set industry standards.
Environmentally friendly fire extinguishing solutions
Condensed aerosol fire extinguishing technology came into prominence as a result of the Montreal Protocol of 1994, which banned ozone depleting substances such as Halon1301 and other halocarbon and chlorofluorocarbon-based substances.
FirePro products have the following properties:
- Manufactured under the ISO:14001 management standard
- EPA SNAP listed
- Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-free
- Marked with the green label
FirePro products are suitable for fire classes A, B, C and F according to EN2 classification, and A, B and C according to NFPA10 classification.
Condensed aerosol fire extinguishing generators
FirePro’s systems can be referred to as condensed aerosol fire extinguishing generators or units. They have numerous benefits, including reliability, effectiveness and credibility.
Products are listed, licensed, approved and certified according to the following international standards for condensed aerosol fire extinguishing technology:
- UL / ULC 2775 listed
- ISO: 15779 certified
- CEN: 15276-1 and 2 certified
- KIWA (NL) certified
- Actifire (Australia / New Zealand) listed
- BSI licensed
- IMO / MED (Wheelmark) type certified
- Safety integrity level (SIL) attested by TUV
Non-corrosive fire extinguishers
FirePro’s solutions have a range of advantages compared with conventional gaseous systems, including lower initial and long-term ownership cost, pre-engineered solutions, weight and space-saving properties, easy installation, no integrity piping tests, fittings or pressure cylinders and easy and cost-effective maintenance, with no hydraulic tests, weighing, pressure / leak detection and filling.
They are also non-corrosive, non-toxic and non-conductive, and do not deplete oxygen levels.
Flooding agents for fire hazard protection
FirePro solutions are total flooding agents that are flexible and adaptable. They can be installed for fire hazards that are impracticable or not financially viable, to protect other technologies.
The company’s condensed aerosol fire extinguishing systems have a modular design and can protect large volumetric enclosures, such as warehouses and offices.
The systems can be linked with any smoke, heat, flame, aspiration, gas or other fire detection technology to produce a complete system.
Automatic fire extinguisher solutions
FirePro also supplies one of the smallest autonomous and automatic fire extinguisher systems, which is used to protect internal volumetrically small electrical panels or other power utilising devices / equipment, which is often where fires start.
In the event of a fire occurring in such potential sources, it is extinguished locally, which stops it from spreading outside the source. Consequently, no additional fire-fighting services are required.
Efficient fire extinguishing condensed aerosol technology
FirePro fire extinguishing systems use the latest generation of the fluidised bed combustion (FPC) solid compound, which consists of potassium salts with non-pyrotechnic materials, such as nitro-guanidine or nitro-cellulose.
Upon activation, the FPC is transformed into a rapidly expanding, highly efficient and effective fire extinguishing condensed aerosol.
It is autonomously distributed evenly in the protected enclosure using the momentum developed during the transformation process.
It extinguishes fire not by oxygen depletion or just cooling, but instead by interrupting the chemical chain reactions present in the flame.
Affordable fire-fighting solutions
FirePro’s client list includes companies in a range of industries, as well as official government departments, including:
