Would you like to know that all your buildings fire extinguishers are located where they should be, full and not obstructed? Well we might just have a solution. Drax Technology already monitors fire doors to ensure they are closed, click here to see our blog on the topic. We also monitor the automatic fire detection system to prove that all the smoke, heat detectors and call points are working. Drax Technology’s solution using its proven AMX alarm monitoring software provides the management team with not only peace of mind but ensures there is an audit rail and proof that the building is complying with the requirements of its fire risk assessment and in turn legislation, The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO).
So why not do the same with fire extinguishers? The same risk assessment for the building will almost certainly require that fire extinguishers are visually checked to ensure they are located where they should be, full and not obstructed. To do this someone has to walk the building. That costs time as well as money and you only have the individual’s word that they have visited every extinguisher. Imagine the size of that task in a hospital, hotel, airport or railway station. Wouldn’t it be better to have an accurate real time electronic record that the extinguishers are located where they should be, full and not obstructed. Well Drax technology might just be able to help. Whist our AMX alarm management software is already on site checking your fire doors and smoke detectors it’s just a small step to include the fire extinguishers as well. Give us a call so we can talk through your requirements.
