At FCF, we offer professional sprinkler system services to protect your home or business from fire outbreaks.

Regardless of the type, it is essential that the system complies with the Australian Standards AS 2118 to ensure it meets the necessary safety guidelines.
These systems work by being activated automatically through a trigger such as a change in temperature or smoke sensor detection. It is remarkable to note that buildings equipped with sprinkler systems have been able to control over 96% of fires that have occurred.

Fire Doors provide a vital safety feature for buildings, offering protection against fire and smoke in escape paths. These specialised doors are specifically designed to limit the spread of fire between various compartments within a building and contain smoke in these areas.
The construction of a fire door involves using fire-resistant materials that create an airtight seal around the door and frame. Although not all fire doors are constructed from non-combustible materials, their efficacy is determined by the number of hours they can resist the spread of fire.
Proper installation and regular inspection of fire doors is essential to ensure they function as intended. Any gaps or defects in the door or frame could allow smoke and fire to pass through, potentially endangering occupants of the building. As such, regular ESM inspections are necessary to ensure the fire doors are functioning effectively.
Investing in the installation and maintenance of these specialised doors is a critical step in protecting the lives and property within a building in the event of a fire. Contact our team today to schedule your regular ESM inspections and ensure your fire doors are providing maximum protection.

In compliance with the Australian building code, any building with an area exceeding 500 square meters is required to have a Fire Hydrant installed. However, these hydrants should only be operated by trained personnel from the fire brigade.
Fire hydrants usually consist of two parts – an above-ground component and an underground component. Like other Fire Protection Equipment, fire hydrants require regular maintenance and inspection to ensure their proper functioning during an emergency.

Passive fire protection refers to the measures taken to prevent the spread of fire and smoke within a building, ensuring the safety of occupants and minimising damage. This type of fire protection involves the use of fire-resistant materials and products, such as fire doors, fireproof walls, and fireproofing sprays, to create fire-resistant barriers within a building.
Fire stopping penetration services are an integral part of passive fire protection and addresses the areas of the building where penetration or gaps exist, such as around pipes and cables. These areas can pose significant fire risk and easily allow the spread of fire and smoke. Fire-resistant materials are used to fill these gaps.
It is the responsibility of building owners and managers to ensure that their properties meet the minimum standard for fire safety. The services of a qualified fire protection specialist are often required to carry out these works.
