Workplace fire safety

workplace safety

Investing in the correct fire protection can help to minimise the damage to your workplace in the event of a fire. There are two areas to look at when looking at workplace fire safety, the containment of fires and the extinguishing of fires.


Fire Curtains and Smoke Curtains

In the event of a fire, fire and smoke curtains can contain the affected area. Fire curtains work to prevent the spread of flames, smoke and heat and can provide compartmentation between different areas. The use of fire curtains means that initial small fires are prevented from escalating into disasters. This safeguards people and property.

Fire blankets

Fire blankets, when draped over a fire, smother the danger by starving the fire of oxygen. The BRIDELA™ fire blankets can also be used to wrap around a person whose clothes are on fire. They are suitable for use in a variety of different workplace environments.


Fire Extinguisher Covers and Hose Reel Covers

Every building should have fire extinguishers, they are an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. Keeping extinguishers in good good condition is imperative to ensure the quality of the equipment. Fire extinguisher covers and hose reel covers offers an inexpensive solution for protection from dirt, dust, grime and grease and keeps equipment in mint condition. Covers can also act as a deterrent to any person who may be considering unnecessarily tampering with, or damaging, the equipment.
