To promote a safety environment, one of the leading fire protection services company in the country, Crown Safemasters Limited, has organised a technical session with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), under the aegis of Nigerian Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (NIEEE), to discuss issues related to safety and fire suppression. The technical session was also used by FirePro, a foreign partner of Crown Safemasters, to introduce Fire Pro Xtinguish.

Speaking at the session, the Business Development Manager, FirePro, George Michael, described Fire Pro Xtinguish, as an exciting and new ‘green’ fire suppression product for total flooding applications or any installation where a fire suppression system is needed to protect the contents of a space.

He said: “Firepro is non-toxic, with zero ozone depletion and global warming potential. It utilizes an aerosol-forming solid compound to extinguishing fires by inhibiting the chemical chain reactions within the fire itself, breaking the chemical reaction of fire cleanly and efficiently,’’

He stated that while being very powerful, the firepro system installation is uncomplicated and that its maintenance is minimal. ‘’Firepro xtinguish and the HCVR-3 Releasing fire Alarm control Panel combine to produce a perfect extinguishing solution for offices, data centers, server rooms, warehouses, archives, banks, transformer/electrical rooms and more,’’

Also speaking at the event, the Executive Director, Crown Safemasters Nig. Limited, Alex Imegu, said the session was important to introduce the experts within the fold of OEM, who are into product manufacturing and suppression systemto global advancement in the global technological market to promote safety in Nigeria.

‘’We have other suppression solutions today that are not really protecting the environment we so much crave to protect, hence the need to embrace products that can give Nigerians value for their money. For instance, FirePro designs and manufactures flexible, efficient and effective fire suppression systems with an innovative compound at the core of their technology. The beauty of it all is that FirePro systems are ideal for both traditional and non-conventional applications,’’ he stated.

On other ways being used to promote the product, Imegu said the company has consistently collaborated with stakeholders and other organisations for product review and engagement.

Reacting on behalf of the Nigerian Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (NIEEE), the Lagos chapter’s Publicity Secretary, Oluseyi Basorun, said the timing of the workshop and the conversations among the stakeholders were important for industry growth and environmental safety.

“We all know that safety is important and I appreciate today’s session because of what our members and the public will gain from it. We have been able to see the value in the new suppression system compared to what we have seen so far and we hope the market will key into it,’’

Earlier, Imegu had disclosed that the promoters of the new solution recently engaged members of the Nigeria Society of Engineers, Ikeja Branch, to rob minds on issues related to fire safety and prevention.
