All types of buildings are susceptible to being affected by fires. No matter what their size is, their protection is guaranteed with RG W-FOG systems- by paying close attention to people and stored goods, and respecting the architectural characteristics of buildings. On occasions, the complete protection of the building is required, while on others, one opts to only protect the most critical hazards.
The most sought after protection is in:
Hospital infrastructures, in general, are complex and medium to large in size with a high occupation density and a high number of people with reduced or no mobility due to their state of health. RG W-FOG avoids dangerous situations due to fire and the evacuation itself, while at the same time minimising damages to valuable equipment and installations in the centre.
They are particularly vulnerable to fires and the installations are both highly variable in type and size. The origins of these are usually located in: rooms, kitchens, restaurants and cafeterias, meeting rooms, clubs, etc. hallways, laundry rooms, generators and transformers, equipment and facilities rooms, common areas,etc.
According to their characteristics or related uses, their protection can vary. Moreover, it is usually connected to polyvalent spaces that change distribution or content with relative frequency and easiness.
Being occupied spaces, protecting people is paramount but also because of the limited reactivity, mobility and user decision (infants, children and youth), it is key to take all possible measures on prevention, early detection, extinction and safe evacuation.
Statistically, the losses per hour for services failures are the highest in all productive sectors, the majority of which affect stock market activities and are not as expensive if they are minor activities, such as daily branch activity.
Historic buildings are singular constructions with a high equity value that covers, generally, both the content and the building itself. The denomination is wide, and joins different typologies, with multiple uses and diverse levels of governmental protection.
All closed circulation surfaces, entrances or related areas must be closed off and protected in such a way that the evacuation channels are completed in pre-determined times and longitudes. The focuses of fires are multiple and very varied.
The accumulation of vehicles and machinery increases the risk of fire and damage caused by fire are potentially very high and can disable the mechanism, retain the vehicles, damage them, affect the structure of the building, etc.
CPD´s:These are strategic points that condition the operation and the continuity of a business. Interruptions in service can lead to major losses. Read more...
FILE ROOMS: They can also be used for historical or current registries, and their purpose is to preserve information in media that is highly vulnerable to fire, which requires protection that is safe, clean and does not leave residues. Read more...
TRANSFORMERS: Losses caused as a result of damages are not only quantified by the deterioration of equipment, but also cuts in the electrical supply, which can gravely affect businesses, industries, as well as basic services such as hospitals or urban areas, i.e. with important economic repercussions.

MECHANICAL STAIRWAYS: The displacement of people on stairways / belt conveyors, which frequently are found in public buildings, stations and airports, etc. - facilitate movement of people and of goods. Although from the point of view of the protection of fires, they are an important risk to consider. Read more…
