FirePro celebrates award win
08 January 2020
Firepro is delighted to receive the judges recognition and credit to win the prestigious active / passive fire project of the year award at the Fire & Security Excellence awards, held in November 2019 at the Hilton Park Lane, London.
Managing director Tony Hanley (pictured right) said: "FirePro is a progressive fire suppression technology with numerous benefits. Our entry exemplified how a comparatively minor investment saved a potentially significant sum of money, saved fire & rescue resource, NHS patient care services and hospital disruption. This was all avoided when a fire broke out inside a critical healthcare process machine. The fire detection and fire suppression system did precisely what it was intended to do, at precisely the right time. It really is that simple."
Quality & technical manager Peter Blandon (pictured left) added: "I was part of an original product evaluation team that visited the equipment manufacturer in 2010. We came away convinced that the FirePro fire suppression products would offer the market a viable and economic alternative to conventional fire suppression products for certain applications such as the one that we won the award for. I commend the board at FirePro for the never ending research and product development, examples of which are evidenced by the LPCB product certification and the new ATEX range of FirePro units. Condensed aerosol technology is here to stay."
