Fire Suppression

Fire Suppression

Prevention is always the goal of any fire suppression system. Fire Suppression systems are designed to detect early fire warning signs in order to prevent large scale disasters from occurring.

A robust fire suppression system will ensure small fire outbreaks do not develop into something which can cripple your business, have unrepairable effects on your property and pose a direct threat to human life.


How does a fire suppression system work? 

Made up of several key components, a fire suppression system typically consists of: 

  • A fire suppression control panel 
  • Smoke detection 
  • An alarm system 
  • Fire suppression (such as cylinder and gas). 


A good fire suppression system will detect heat or smoke whilst the fire is still in the early stages of development. The alarm system will then be promptly triggered, alerting all staff or personnel within the property of the immediate threat of fire.  

To provide optimal fire control, most fire suppression systems will emit some sort of extinguisher. This could be a simple water sprinkler system or a chemical foam extinguisher. The type of fire system that is most appropriate depends on what the building (or room) is being used for.  

Read more about this in our fire suppression guide.


Fire suppression control panels 

The control panel is the brains of any fire suppression system and oversees all components. With constant monitoring of all detectors on the site, they'll detect any signs of a fire, sound the alarm and trigger a fire suppression response. 

Eclipse (IP) also provides a full remote monitoring service that allows for real-time, human-controlled responses from a local monitoring station. Providing optimal response time and cutting down on false alarms, you can have peace of mind knowing your site is being watched over by both a cutting-edge system and a team of dedicated experts. 

Smoke detection 

Early warning smoke detection can help prevent a fire before it causes too much damage. Using top of the line systems such as VESDA®, we can install and maintain a detection system specifically designed for your site. This smoke detection system offers optimal coverage and the best protection against the outbreak of fires.
