Automatic Plant Fire Suppression

Atlas World is the leading Automatic Fire Suppression distributor for Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. In collaboration with Reacton Fire Suppression Ltd, we Supply. Install, Commission and Maintain high quality fire suppression systems to our customer base.

 

We specialise in helping companies prevent fires by using systems that are competitively priced, reliable and efficient. Each system can be tailored for the specific industry, vehicle and application, protecting vital equipment, machinery as well as the site itself. Atlas World are dedicated to helping stop fires before they start – whether that’s in a room filled with server racks or heavy machinery in a recycling plant, there is a system and suppressant agent to suit all.

How does it work?

At the heart of every Atlas World Fire Suppression system is the unique detection tubing that requires no external power source, delivering 100% effectiveness with zero false alarms. Adaptable to any application that carries a fire risk, the pressurised tubing is intelligently routed around all high risk areas ensuring 24/7 protection.

When a fire occurs, the pressurised detection tube will burst at the point of highest heat causing a drop in pressure. The suppression agent is then released either via the detection tube for ‘direct’ systems or via a network of strategically placed hoses and nozzles for the ‘indirect’ system, suppressing the fire in under 10 seconds resulting in minimal damage and downtime.

Fire Suppression Applications

Mobile & Industrial Plant

Heavy Duty Mobile Plant equipment plays a vital role within a wide range of sectors, including the Waste & Recycling industry, Civil Engineering, Mining, Forestry & many more. Mobile Plant Machinery can be costly, both to your margins and to your operations. No matter what size of machinery you have, Atlas World will design and install a system to protect your machinery from fire.

Data Centres

Fire Suppression is a simple preventative method to ensure vast amounts of business data and intellectual property are protected. Downtime for server racks, data cabinets, electrical rooms and computer rooms is unthinkable in today’s world. Our Atlas World engineers can design and install a Fire Suppression system adapted to your business requirements.

Electrical Panels

Electrical Cabinets are prone to fire risk; outdated wiring, misuse of extension cords, faulty electrical outlets can all cause devastating fires in electrical components. Atlas World Fire Suppression systems have been specially engineered for small enclosures to protect your business and your valuable equipment by stopping fires within seconds.

Static Industrial Machinery

Thousands of fires occur every year at industrial and manufacturing properties. Friction between moving parts, handling combustible material and faulty equipment can be major causes of industrial fires. Replacing or repairing mobile plant machinery can be costly, both to your margins and to your operations.

CNC EDM CAM Machinery

CNC and CAM machinery are particularly vulnerable as flammable lubricants and coolants increase the risk of fire. CNC machines can cause severe damage in seconds and potentially spread throughout the facility causing extensive damage and possible human injury. Industry studies show that 43 percent of businesses closed by significant fire never reopen.

Wind Turbines

The main causes of fire ignition in wind turbines are: lighting strike, electrical malfunction, mechanical malfunction, and maintenance. Once ignition occurs in a wind turbine, the chances of externally fighting the fire are very slim due to the height of the nacelle and the often remote location. With Atlas World Fire Suppression systems you can protect the valuable components involved as well as the surrounding environment.

Power Generation

Power generation facilities… whether hydroelectric, nuclear, or fossil fuel… all present significant and varied fire hazards, from both the fuel and the rotating machinery. Fire also poses a significant business risk, not only because power plants are a major capital investment, but also because downtime can have serious repercussions for those who depend on an uninterrupted supply of electricity. At Atlas World, we provide fire suppression systems to stop fires within seconds.

Fire Suppression Systems

At Atlas World we have multiple fire suppression systems designed to protect your site, machinery and vehicles from the threat of fire. Our expert Account Managers can tailor the best system and fire suppressing agent to suit your specific requirements.

Rigorous System Testing

UNECE R107 Vehicle Approval Test 11

The above video demonstrates a simulation of a vehicle engine fire where there is an oil leak dripping on to an exceptionally hot surface (normally the exhaust). The test demonstrates the effectiveness of the extinguishing agent against the potential for reignition within this volatile scenario. Atlas World is the leading Automatic Fire Suppression distributor for Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. In collaboration with Reacton Fire Suppression Ltd, we are able to Supply, Install, Commission and Maintain high quality fire suppression systems to our customer base. The ‘Reacton’ technology recently underwent extensive testing in Sweden for use within the transportation industry which proved exceptionally successful and resulted in a key accreditation being awarded to ReactonTM – UNECE R107.

R107 Bus & Coach Fire Suppression Discharge

For all On Road and Off Road vehicles, fire is a risk to both people and assets. The above video demonstrates a simulation of a vehicle engine fire with multiple hidden flammable liquids, compounded with a constant diesel spray to represent a ruptured pipe or hose that can cause a serious fire. This test demonstrates the effectiveness of the extinguishing agent of an Atlas World Fire Suppression system against the potential for re-ignition once activated in what is a volatile scenario. Atlas World uses the Reacton Fire Suppression systems that recently underwent extensive testing in Sweden for use within the transportation industry which proved exceptionally successful and resulted in a key accreditation being awarded to ReactonTM. Ensuring our customers are protected in the event of a fire.
