Wormald showcases fire protection solutions at CMIC
14 August 2012: Fire protection specialist Wormald will showcase a range of its fire protection equipment and solutions at this year’s Construction Materials Industry Conference (CMIC), which will be held in Melbourne from 19-22 September.
Wormald’s vehicle fire suppression (VFS) systems provide vital risk management for heavy vehicles against the threat of fire. On display will be Wormald’s Foam Water Spray VFS System which features high pressure and small droplet nozzles to target risk areas such as engine and transmission compartments and hydraulic areas. Visitors to the Wormald stand can also view the Ansul™ A-101 Vehicle Powder System, which discharges a dry powder known as Foray® into the risk area to suppress the fire and is well suited to three dimensional liquid fuel fires.
Wormald will also showcase the ELSA (Emergency Life Support Apparatus) escape breathing apparatus from Scott Safety. The ELSA is designed to aid escape from hazardous atmospheres such as fires. The apparatus is simple to put on in an emergency situation and provides powerful protection from harmful gases. Providing breathable air, the ELSA escape breathing apparatus consists of a compressed air cylinder, a supply hose to air hood and stowage bag.
Also at the Wormald stand will be the ANSUL® RED LINE cartridge-operated extinguishers which are the preferred premium fire fighting units in high fire-risk industries. The externally mounted pressure cartridges on each unit ensure easy removal for increased reliability, on-the-spot recharge and ease of service. The rugged units are claimed to be durable, featuring sturdy carbon-steel shells that resist impact, vibration and corrosion, while polyester powder paints provide protection against corrosion, cracking and chipping.
A dedicated Wormald team will be on hand at the CMIC exhibition to demonstrate the features of the various products. For more details on Wormald’s range of fire protection equipment and systems call 133 166 or visit www.wormald.com.au
