If you are trying to enhance the measures you have taken for fire protection in Edmonton, then fire alarms are perhaps the most standard fire safety system. No matter how great the existing firefighting systems are, ensuring that the people inside are aware of the danger is the top priority.
Not only can we install an effective alarm system into your newly constructed building, but we can also retrofit alarms into existing properties as well as maintain your current fire alarm. Alberta fire codes require that such alarms be installed and maintained by certified professionals. Fire protection in Edmonton is not complete without the approvals of reliable authority. That’s why it is crucial to call us rather than attempting to test it yourself.
A fire alarm can protect the people inside of a building, but to protect the building itself, you’ll need an effective sprinkler system to douse the fire in water. Alberta Fire Code requires you to have your fire protection systems regularly inspected and by the right professionals and insurance companies. While sprinklers are typically associated with large commercial and industrial buildings, it’s common to have sprinkler systems in apartment buildings or houses. Call us to find out how a sprinkler system could increase the safety of your property.
Fire extinguishers are a must-have to minimize damage and increase building safety. Alberta Fire code requires fire extinguishers, and they a standard part of fire safety inspections. That’s why they must be easily accessible and require yearly maintenance. We have a wide range of extinguishers and other fire products and have an expert team to advise you about where these products should be kept and provide routine inspections and maintenance.
Hydrants & Standpipes
If a disaster strikes and the fire department gets called to your property, firefighters can use hydrants as a crucial water source to put out the fire and preserve your property. While the municipality usually maintains public hydrants, the owners must maintain private hydrants annually to flush out debris. Similarly, standpipes require annual maintenance. These are available either as dry standpipes (which are not filled with water until needed and can only be used by firefighters) or wet standpipes (which are always pressurized with water and can be used by building occupants).
Stove Fire Suppression Systems
Fires are a leading cause of damages in both commercial and residential kitchens. However, if you have a restaurant or are an avid home chef, a stove fire suppression system could prevent property loss and injury. Grease and oils are particularly hazardous, and the bustle of a restaurant kitchen can result in flammable items getting too close to the heat. That’s why having built-in suppression systems – either automatic or manual – can help to put out a sudden kitchen fire before it causes extensive damage.
Helping You Find the Right Fire Protection System
A fire protection system appropriate for a single-family home may not be ideal for a business or factory. Getting the right fire protection system for your Edmonton property is crucial for not only ensuring safety but keeping your assets safe from any damage by the system already in use. If you’re an electric store owner, you may require a particular hazard fire protection system that doesn’t use water, but if your warehouse is in a freezing area, an antifreeze sprinkler system is required. At Amptec Fire & Security, we can assess your building and property to search for a system that works the best for you. Contact us today to schedule an inspection.
24/7 Fire Monitoring
How do you know that your building is safe when you’re not there? For your peace of mind, we provide around the clock monitoring for fire protection in Edmonton. We receive a notification as soon as a smoke detector or fire alarm goes off, and we contact the fire department immediately. Your home or business will be protected, even if you’re not there. The fast response time is critical to give the fire department a chance to save your property and stop the damage before it gets worse.
