Be Prepared for Emergencies with Bull’s Fire Protection Solutions
According to HSE, it can take 30 minutes from the alarm being raised for a fire to spread, in which time much of the damage has already been done.
Here at Bull, we provide a range of fire protection equipment and our ambition is to ensure people are protected to the highest health and safety standards.
Did you know last year, there was a 21% increase in fire fatalities? Although fires can spread very quickly, there are preventative measures that can be put in place to deal with a situation first-hand, including having the correct fire alarms and fire extinguishers on site.
Fire alarms – which one is right for you?
To protect employees, reliable fire alarms are the first critical step in alerting people of the danger and saving lives in the event of a fire. Therefore, it’s important that you have fire alarms located in the correct places, and the right type of alarm depending on the building or site.
At Bull, we supply a range of fire alarms and detectors to the construction industry, from industry standard wireless alarms, bells and horns, to smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, to our renowned Cygnus Wireless Alarm System.
The Cygnus Wireless Alarm System, manufactured by Bull Products, is a major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites.
CE compliant, the Cygnus system connects on a category 1 radio frequency. It’s made up of various devices, including fire alarm call points, heat and smoke detectors, first aid alert points and an optional control panel, which captures and displays data from the different devices for quick and easy identification of emergency situations.
Suitable for large-scale developments, the Cygnus system is able to link 480 individual units in 15 different zones.
Rigorously tested to offer the ultimate in performance and reliability, the Cygnus system has raised the bar in the industry and is the most successful and adaptable temporary fire alarm system for use in the construction industry.
Bull’s fire extinguishers – how do you know which one to choose?
There’s no such thing as a universal fire extinguisher, and no single fire extinguisher can be used for every type of fire.
Remember different materials burn in different ways. Each hazard requires a different response so having the right extinguishers for the environment and the risks involved is essential.
Did you know all fire extinguishers manufactured in the UK have been specifically developed with different properties to combat each type of fire?
Our fire extinguishers feature colour-coded labelling that corresponds to the universal fire classification system. This will ensure emergency fire responders are able to swiftly select the type of extinguisher required to tackle a blaze.
It’s also important to ensure fire extinguishers are placed in the correct areas such as corridors, stairways, and landings, so they are highly visible to those following an escape route.
At Bull we stock and supply more than 50 regulation-compliant fire extinguishers including water fire extinguishers, foam extinguishers, and wet chemical extinguishers. So no matter what your environment or the risk posed, we can keep your workplace safe.
Expert advice you can rely on
At Bull our expert engineers can assess the specific risks for your work environment and advise on the appropriate types of extinguishers required to keep your work environment safe and your business compliant.
We can also provide specialist training in fire safety awareness, as well as give advice on how to operate extinguishers safely.
