Hillhead 2024

Hillhead 2024 has come and gone for another two years and was a very successful event for Fireward.  This bi-annual exhibition is the largest quarrying, construction & recycling event in the UK and a great opportunity to see what your next investment might be in plant and equipment and how you can  protect it with Fireward fire suppression systems.

Fireward had on display its market leading Dual Agent system, an outstanding fire suppression method due to the combined benefits of Dry Power and Wet Chemical in on solution. Using both wet and dry agents reduces the chance of the fire reigniting after discharge. Not only can the system provide rapid-fire knockdown and excellent coverage with the dry powder, but with the cooling properties of wet chemicals, the system is economical and efficient. Our Dual Agent system is performance and durability accredited to RI:SE P-Mark SPCR 199 and ActivFire AS5062:2016.

When it comes to detecting fires, speed is of utmost importance. Fireward's pneumatic detection system typically detects fires within 5 seconds of the detection tube rupturing. LHD systems’ detection time can be well over 20 seconds and can be significantly longer in dealing with a fire incident. This increased time taken to detect can cause a great deal more damage to a machine before fire scenario is dealt with. The difference in damage a machine can suffer from a hydraulic hose fire from 5 to 20 seconds is phenomenal and striking as soon as possible is of the upmost importance.

If you weren’t able to make the show or didn’t get chance to come and talk to us, then we would love to hear from you.
