Orbnest Fire System

Fire represents the single most catastrophic event, which a building is likely to experience and carries with it, risks to the safety and lives of the occupants. Fires are the most destructive, disruptive and costly cause of damage to property and prevention of these requires both risk awareness and the adoption of good practice. The one excellent way of reducing the probable consequences of fires is the use of an excellent fire protection system. How quickly you recover depends on your choice of fire protection agent. Selection of an extinguishing system should be based on the exact site requirement.

Orbnest Systems offers a wide range of options for fire protection:


Carbon dioxide Fire Extinguishers

Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishers tackles Class B flammable liquid and Class C electrical fire hazards. They are ideally suited for indoor applications where Delicate equipment or processes require a clean extinguishing agent.

Water Fire Extinguishers

Water Fire Extinguishers are ideal for common combustible materials such as trash, wood, and paper. They are perfect for occupancies such as apartments, storerooms, schools, offices, and theaters. This non-toxic, environment-friendly, range, fast and effective fire protection where Class A materials may be present.

Hydrant Systems

The Fire hydrant allows the fire department to gain access to the fire system quickly and efficiently. By hooking up to a fire hydrant, a pumper gains access to water in a municipal (private) water system at whatever pressure is in the system.

Orbnest Systems is offering a fire hydrant system (a source of water provided to enable firefighters to assist in extinguishing a fire) which is a key element for any water supply system used for fighting fires

Fire Hydrant comes in various forms:

Standpipe, Hydrant Key & Bar

Standpipes are available in single or double. Both comprise of a shaft, a swivel head base, blank cap & chain. Hydrant key and bar is intended for use on underground hydrant valves. The length of the key is sufficient to allow the bar to clear adjacent standpipe or other obstructions.

Control Panel

A microprocessor-based system, that allows continuous monitoring of data from sensors. It also acts as the central brain of the system that sends activation signals to all output devices of the systems – the bells, sounders, FM200 Cylinder actuator, Flashers, etc. It is the unit that controls the double knock capability of the system.

Sensing Devices

The sensing devices are divided into smoke detectors and heat detectors. They are sensors which detect the presence of smoke or heat in a particular enclosure and sends back signal to the control panel. Detection will be achieved with a combination of Optical and Ionisation detectors. This combination is to enable the system detect the different kinds of fire namely fast burning and smouldering fires. It also has the advantage of yearly warning and precise identification of the source of fire.

Alarm Devices

These are units for alerting the occupants of a room on the outbreak of fire. A sounder with an audible output sound is used along side a Flasher which produces a visual alert for occupants who may not hear the sound from the Sounder.

Extinguishing Devices

In case of a fire outbreak, an automatic fire alarm system will automatically activate an extinguishing system thus minimising loss. The FM-200 gas will automatically discharge on confirmation of fire from the sensors. Other components of the extinguishing part are:

  • FM-200 Gas Cylinder
  • Nozzles
  • Actuators(pneumatic & manual)
  • Pilot hose
Sprinkler System

Water spray or deluge systems are used to either control or extinguish high challenge fires. Unlike sprinklers, they discharge high momentum water spray in defined cones of discharge to protect specific areas of risk. Using only water they are effective even on oil based fires. Detectors are used to sense for the presence of fires over very localised risks. These detectors include thermal sensors, sprinkler heads and flame detectors. The water spray nozzles are connected to a water supply via a pipe network. The pipe network is dry, while the spray heads are always open. A deluge valve holds water back from the spray pipe network which, when opened, allows water to flow from all of the spray heads simultaneously
