Construction Fire Protection
Safety on a construction site is of paramount importance, not just where machinery, heavy loads and towering scaffolding is concerned. Construction fire risks may be different to the ones we encounter at home or in an office, for example, but they must be treated with the same respect and care as any other fire hazard.
At City Fire, we’ve spent years developing our construction fire protection services to ensure they offer everything you need to make sure that your site is as well prepared for fire risks as it can possibly be. From fire extinguishers to fire alarms and fire risk assessments, we can provide a tailored plan for your construction site to ensure you have everything you need.
Main fire risks for construction sites
Construction sites are so different in their makeup to domestic or other commercial environments that the risks are also completely different and more severe in certain areas. The amount and variety of materials and equipment present on these sites means that extensive preparation is vital for minimising the risk of fire.
Some of the main construction fire risks include:
- Sparks from construction work, e.g. sawing
- The fuel for machinery used on site
- LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) used in a variety of machines and equipment
- Improperly stored materials
At City Fire, we can provide fire safety equipment like extinguishers and sprinklers, but we can also supply comprehensive fire risk assessments and safety training, so you and your staff are fully trained in the correct protocol in the event of a fire.
Fire extinguishers and alarms for construction sites
Fire extinguishers and alarms are crucial for maximising safety and minimising damage to health and property in the event of a fire. Without fully-functioning fire alarms, a fire may not be detected until it’s too late, and without fire extinguishers, those within the building have no chance of dealing with them safely.
City Fire Protection offer the supply and installation of fire safety equipment, including fire extinguishers of all types, as well as fire alarms, sprinklers and fire doors. We’ll ensure your new equipment is fully installed, and that your staff are properly trained in the safe and correct usage of your new fire safety materials.
