Waterguard and Ramtech unveil water leak and fire detection collaboration
16 July 2021
BARNSLEY-BASED construction technology specialist Waterguard and Ramtech – the alarm solutions developer – have outlined plans to interlink their water leak and fire detection systems in a bid to improve efficiencies on construction sites across the globe.
The complete solution will enable Waterguard’s Series 7 leak detection device to ‘talk’ to Ramtech’s REACT platform, itself a cloud-based solution which raises alerts in real-time, sending notifications straight to the individuals who can act on them.
When combined with Ramtech’s range of wireless emergency alarms, the technology will provide a cost-effective solution for commercial and residential construction projects as well as adding a level of accountability throughout the various stages of development.
Popular on multi-residential and commercial schemes, the technology forms an integral part of the construction phase and is often specified by the developer or insurance company.
Safeguarding staff and property
Adam Jurka, UK sales manager at Ramtech (a £12 million-turnover company with offices in Nottingham and the US), explained: “Construction sites are, by their very nature, dangerous places to work. With the complex demands of modern projects, it’s vital to safeguard staff, property and equipment. By partnering with Waterguard, we’ve extended our service portfolio to offer an holistic monitoring system which delivers peace of mind and protection.”
Claire Mason, general manager at Waterguard, added: “Incoming leak detection and fire safety is a stipulation of any construction project. Waterguard exists to shield every building and each building owner from the damage and expense which comes with burst and leaking pipes.
Mason added: “Offering both firms’ technology in a single interface, and one which is proven within our marketplace, saves developers time and money, affords Construction Insurance Risk Engineers Group compliance and provides an opportunity to develop unique systems designed to meet clients’ specific requirements.”
