This involves reducing the heat output of a fire, reducing the area over which the fire exists or suppressing or extinguishing the fire. In the event of a fire breaking out, Opticom can assist you to take steps to contain a small fire, stop it from spreading and becoming a major disaster.

Some of the solutions that we recommend and implement are:

Fire Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers are active fire protection devices used to snuff out small fires in emergency situations. The various types of fire extinguisher put out fires started with different types of fuel; these are called ‘classes’ of fire.  The fire risk from the different classes of fire in your business premises will determine which fire extinguisher types you need.

At Opticom, we first comprehensively assess your home or business to ensure that we provide what will be most effective for our clients. For Extinguishers, service and maintenance is key. We work with our clients to develop an effective service and maintenance plan.

Sprinkler Systems

A fire sprinkler system is a simple, but key, active component of a domestic or commercial building’s fire protection system. Installed in ceilings or side walls, the system consists of a water supply, a water distribution piping system and sprinkler heads. The sprinkler discharges water automatically when a fire is detected, though it is not triggered by smoke.

Opticom offers complete visual inspection of all sprinkler heads, piping and hangers ensuring there are no painted heads, disconnected hangers or leaking pipes. We test all the devices on the system and conduct a flow test or a “main drain test” and compare to past numbers to make sure there’s no pressure drop in water. Our highly trained and certified technicians install and maintain sprinkler systems customized to any facility.

Hydrant Systems

Fire hydrants are an essential component in fire protective systems. They are the central piece that connects the water to the hose, which allows firefighters to control the flames. Fire hydrant pump systems are high pressure water pumps designed to increase the fire-fighting capacity of a building by boosting the pressure in the hydrant service when mains is not enough, or when tank fed.

To make sure your fire hydrant system is adequately installed and working properly, contact Opticom (K) Limited. A periodic check of the fire safety equipment is always a good plan and using the knowledgeable professionals from Opticom can save you time and money.

Hose Reel Systems

Fire hose reels are located at strategic places in buildings to provide a reasonably accessible and controlled supply of water for fire extinguishing. Fire hose reel systems consist of pumps, pipes, water supply and hose reels located strategically in a building, ensuring proper coverage of water to combat a fire.

The system is manually operated and activated by opening a valve enabling the water to flow into the hose that is typically 30 meters away. The system pressure loss will activate the pump ensuring adequate water flow and pressure to provide a water jet of typically a minimum of 10 meter from the nozzle.

Opticom understands that fire safety is crucial and this is why we take time to understand your needs and walk with you from conceptualization of the solution to the installation and finally handing over of the site constantly making sure that your needs are met adequately.

Suppression Systems

A Fire Suppression system suppresses a fire through releasing an agent to either reduce the oxygen, reduce the chemical reaction within the atmosphere or cool the fire. Once a fire has been detected, by either the manual or automatic detection, a notification is sent to the panel which in turn releases the agent.

Fire Suppression systems are being installed to protect all industries across Kenya.  Some of the agents used are: Carbon Dioxide, Argon, Powder, Foam and FM200.

Before an installation is made, a comprehensive site survey should be carried out to establish the need and the most suitable solution. We ensure that the best solution is implemented thus protection your workforce, home and assets in the long run.
