Fire pro­tec­tion spe­cial­ists at AUSTim­ber

Australian Forests and Timber - - AUSTIMBER 2016 -

FIRE PRO­TEC­TION is a cru­cial part of the work scene and while Re­con In­dus­tries Aus­tralia’s main fo­cus is spe­cial haz­ards such as ve­hi­cle sys­tems it is also in­volved in fire sys­tems for sub­sta­tions, ex­plo­sive bunkers and the petro­chem­i­cal in­dus­try as well as all gen­eral fire safety equip­ment and sys­tems along with test­ing and ser­vic­ing of this equip­ment.

James Gray (Op­er­a­tions Man­ager) and Cameron (Gray) each have over 13 years in­volve­ment in the fire in­dus­try.

“We or­gan­ise and run fire tech­ni­cians for ser­vic­ing fire sup­pres­sion sys­tems, fire fight­ing equip­ment and in­stal­la­tions across Aus­tralia,” said James.

Like any other piece of equip­ment that is heav­ily re­lied on in the work sit­u­a­tion, fire sup­pres­sion units are no dif­fer­ent when it comes to maintenance.

“Maintenance of the fire sup­pres­sion sys­tem is a crit­i­cal link as this helps en­sure that the sys­tem is in a con­di­tion that will al­low it to func­tion cor­rectly.

“The nor­mal maintenance un­der the Aus­tralian stan­dards is ev­ery 6 and 12 months. The service provider will sup­ply in­spec­tion pa­per­work to show what has been in­spected and any fol­low up work re­quired,” he said.

Re­con In­dus­tries Aus­tralia will be at AUSTim­ber and will be high­light­ing the lat­est fire sup­pres­sion and fire pro­tec­tion prod­ucts.

“Fire tech­ni­cians man­ning the stand to dis­cuss the prod­ucts on dis­play as well as an­swer any ques­tions that you have,” said James

Some of the prod­ucts that will be on dis­play in­clude:

The new Check­fire 210 con­trol sys­tem from An­sul which is now stan­dard fit­ment on all Ko­mastu forest equip­ment. Fire ex­tin­guish­ers and fire­fight­ing equip­ment. A range of AFFF sup­pres­sion sys­tems. Brochures on dif­fer­ent types of fire sup­pres­sion sys­tems

“Our tech­ni­cians will be on hand at the stand to as­sist with and dis­cuss com­pli­ance with Aus­tralian stan­dards and how to best main­tain the fire sup­pres­sion sys­tems fit­ted to ma­chin­ery.

“We will also be giv­ing away mul­ti­tools to some lucky vis­i­tors.”

One of the fire sup­pres­sion sys­tems Re­con In­dus­tries in­stalled at the Ko­matsu Forest Wodonga work­shop. The ma­chine is now in oper­a­tion near Eden.
