Automatic Fire Suppression System Services
Fires can wreak havoc, especially in commercial buildings and factories. Fire suppression systems, among other fire safety devices, play a critical role here. These are specialised mechanisms installed in commercial structures to control and mitigate fire outbreaks.
Often referred to as special hazard fire protection systems, these devices address unique fire risks or “special hazards.” Fire suppression systems are an integral part of Australia’s fire protection protocol.
AESM understands the gravity of fire-related dangers and offers superior fire protection services to enhance the effectiveness of your safety strategies. It's essential to remember that, like all fire protection equipment, special hazard fire suppression systems require maintenance and regular service to function optimally.

Fire Suppression System Australian Standard
Australia's commitment to fire safety is ensured through its stringent standards. Special Hazard Systems are governed by AS 1670, which delineates the installation, design, and commissioning specifications, while AS1851 focuses on maintaining fire protection systems, including fire suppression systems. Standards of Fire Suppression Systems also differ by their type.
With AESM’s compliance to Australian Safety Standards, you can rest assured your fire suppression measures are in good hands.
Fire Suppression System Testing
The AS1851 mandates annual Enclosure Integrity testing for Fire Suppression Systems. Enclosure Integrity covers the sealed nature of a space, ensuring that fire suppression agents, especially those of the gaseous variety, remain contained within an area during a fire.
Any potential leakages or weak spots in the enclosure are identified through systematic testing. This early detection is important for gaseous suppression systems, as any leakage can diminish the system's efficacy, making it less effective at controlling fires.
Fire Suppression System Maintenance
Fire suppression system inspection requirements contain multiple components. These include control valves, piping, an external alarm, fire sprinkler systems, fire indicator panels, fire brigade panels, smoke detectors, and the emergency warning system. Each part has its distinct function, and their seamless operation is vital for the fire system's overall efficiency.
Monthly fire suppression system inspection usually encompasses evaluations of the external alarm system, fire indicator panels, batteries, and wiring for any damage or wear. Annual assessments, on the other hand, are more exhaustive. They encompass room integrity testing, activation of the fire detection system to check the efficacy of sensors and triggers, as well as assessment of visual warning aids and other associated systems.
AESM is confident in its qualified technicians and electricians to provide a thorough check for your fire suppression system in Melbourne. Our seasoned fire safety professionals in Victoria meticulously evaluate your devices against a comprehensive fire suppression system maintenance checklist aligned with Australian safety norms.
