Firetrace News

Firetrace have recently completed a UK-wide project installing their dedicated Tumble Dryer Automatic Fire Suppression System in David Lloyd beauty salons.

Located at various sites within the United Kingdom, each salon is equipped with a commercial tumble dryer.

The Firetrace system was previously tested at Firetrace’s Ipswich premises and was approved by David Lloyd’s Insurance providers. After gaining the approval, the Firetrace installation engineers visited most David Lloyd sites to help protect their assets from fire. 

The design of the Firetrace system was to protect the exhaust duct and above the drum against fire using the Firetrace linear detection tubing. Due to space constraints, protection against fire was the obvious choice.

Firetrace's dedicated tumble dryer system was specified to protect the machine with the use of CO2 gas. The extinguishant is specifically designed to suppress the fire and inert the machine and drum. Operating pneumatically and completed with a volt free pressure switch this ensures the dryer is turned off in event of a fire.

Julie Bingham from David Lloyd stated: The Firetrace Systems that are installed on our laundry machines within our clubs are also maintained Firetrace. We find them an excellent company to work with as the Firetrace team are friendly, helpful and efficient. We would highly recommend them to anybody wanting Fire Suppression installed in the premises.
