The task of a fire-fighting system is to early detect and minimise the consequences of a fire, and thus protect people and property. Simple fire-fighting systems consist of a fire and smoke detector, a control panel and fixed fire-fighting systems, e.g. a system of pipes filled with an extinguishing agent and provided with outlet nozzles. Fire-fighting systems may be divided into four main types, depending on the applied extinguishing agent: water, water mist, foam and gas extinguishing systems.
The GRUPA WOLFF team of engineers is highly experienced in designing fire-fighting systems and selecting adequate solutions for specific uses, in consideration of all safety requirements, technical know-how and the binding legal standards.
The foam fire suppression systems are used for areas at a high risk of fire, storage tanks for fuels, solvents and other flammable liquids, plastic material storage units, flammable and/or potentially explosive atmosphere storage areas, and chemical processing plants.
We design and implement ventilation and smoke removal systems for enclosed structures, escape routes and staircases. We supply the proposed solutions complete with fire detection and alarm systems as well as emergency and escape route lighting. We may integrate them with the existing safety systems, too. The comprehensive task performance may also comprise design and provision of fixed fire-fighting systems.
We design and implement fire alarm systems as well as complete fire-fighting systems. The latter may comprise fixed fire-fighting systems, voice alarm systems, emergency and escape route lighting, ventilation and smoke removal systems, as well as gas detection systems. Within such comprehensive approach we assume full liability to deliver a cohesive fire-fighting system. At the same time, we guarantee integration of the existing structure with the newly implemented safety systems.
We design and implement wireless fire detection and alarm systems which do not require traditional cabling. Such solution is simple and fast to install, and at the same time extremely aesthetic (the sub-assemblies imitate marble and wood or may be finished to RAL colours). All that makes such systems ideal for buildings where interior must remain intact, high aesthetics is important and the simplicity of installing wires is crucial. This refers mainly to historic buildings, religious buildings or heritage monuments under the supervision of heritage conservation officer (churches, museums, cathedrals). The proposed wireless fire detection and alarm system may be easily integrated with the traditional systems of other manufacturers.
We provide comprehensive implementation of smouldering fire detection and alarm systems, which are mainly used in protecting belt conveyors, tunnels, silos, dispensers, storage yards, bulk material storage facilities as well as hardly accessible places. The proposed solution frequently detects fire before the typical symptoms such as smoke or flame, which are detected by the traditional systems, appear. Thus, actions may be taken earlier and the risk of fire spreading is minimised, which also refers to the risk of losses resulting from system or product flooding. The smouldering fire detection systems designed by us are based on fire gas detectors and infra-red heat detectors, thanks to which they prove to be useful in difficult industrial conditions (high-dustiness and humidity), which may be found in power plants, cogeneration plants, cement plants or wood and cellulose processing plants.
We design and implement complete fire detection and alarm systems based on a line temperature detector (or other detectors selected adequately to the working conditions), which is a special active cable with embedded sensors. The solution is intended to be applied in hardly accessible spaces or when temperature measurement is required along long sections reaching from several dozens to several thousands meters. Typically line temperature sensors are applied in detecting belt conveyor failures or fires, cable routes overheating, detecting fires in transformer rooms, tanks, tankers and pipelines temperature monitoring. The line temperature sensor precisely indicates the source of fire or overheating of the monitored equipment or cable route.
We design and implement gas extinguishing systems as well as complete fire safety systems, which comprise: the systems for fire detection, alarm and extinguishing, ventilation and smoke removal, emergency and escape route lighting, CCTV, access control as well as time and attendance control.
We design and implement spark extinguishing systems intended to be installed in industrial systems ducts. Their task is to prevent the potential ignition source in the form of a spark, cigarette butt, or heated particle getting inside an equipment with explosive atmosphere.
