Fire Prevention and Fire Extinguishing Systems

Fire Protection that makes Sense

Procuring a fire extinguishing system does not necessarily mean the end of the fire prevention process. Ageing, wear, and corrosion gradually impair the level of fire protection the system provides, and inspections are required at regular intervals. Our experts examine the technical condition of fire alarm systems and extinguishing systems and evaluate whether they are still adequate for use in your building. We offer comprehensive solutions for structural and technical fire protection – right from the initial planning stages. We develop concepts and escape and rescue route plans and provide support for your documentation work.
