Fire Protection Systems


A firefighting system is probably the most important of the building services, as its aim is to protect human life and property, strictly in that order.  

We design Systems to meet the local building by laws endorsed by the Fire authorities. The main constituents include the following: -

  • A large store of water in tanks, either underground or on top of the building.
  • A specialized independent pumping station with standby pumps and source of Electric power
  • A large network of pipes ending in either hydrants or sprinklers or both.

A Good fire hydrant is a vertical steel pipe with an outlet, close to which two fire hoses are stored During a fire, firefighters will go to the outlet, break open the hoses, attach one to the outlet, and manually open it so that water rushes out of the nozzle of the hose. As soon as the fire fighter opens the hydrant, water will gush out, and sensors will detect a drop in pressure in the system. This drop in pressure will trigger the fire pumps to turn on and start pumping water at a tremendous flowrate. This way the system is designed to operate effectively to fight fire.

DBSS ensures quality workmanship based on best hydraulic calculations for right outflow of water at the desired outlets for effective extinguishing.

We also design automatic fire suppression system using right extinguishing gases and also Foam and emulsification System for high risk areas. Each of these systems are designed to meet NFPA codes of international standards.
