FPT Unveils a New Fire Test Facility

15 September 2016


Fire Protection Technologies have completed the construction of a new System Test Laboratory where Watermist and Gaseous Systems can be test discharged and easily viewed through large plate glass windows.

In its first use recently, Warren Smith and Partners, in conjunction with representatives from the Sydney Opera House, attended a live fire test of the VORTEX500 Modular Hybrid Water Mist system.
 
The purpose of the test was to demonstrate how effective the VORTEX fire extinguishing system can be at extinguishing very small, highly obstructed fires contained in operating file server racking,  whilst providing a safe and  continuous working environment for people and electrical equipment.
