Endorsed by UK Fire and Rescue Services, the UltraGuard personal protection system is a self-contained and portable fire suppression system that protects vulnerable and elderly people within their own home. Designed to detect and suppress fires at their earliest stage, preventing the spread of fire and any potential fire and smoke related deaths. The system simply plugs into the nearest socket with no need to be plumbed in, as well as being able to operate during a mains power failure with its internal backup battery. UltraGuard is designed for persons who may have a reduced level of mobility or awareness, including those who may reside in conditions where the risk of fire is higher or the possible escape route may be hindered.
How it Works
The UltraGuard personal fire protection system consists of a self-contained and portable sprinkler suppression system, working in conjunction with two multi-sensor detectors. The multi-sensor detectors can be fitted in rooms where the person at risk, spends the majority of their time, and a room of high fire risk, if it is not the same room.
The detectors in the UltraGuard system activate upon detection of either smoke in the optical smoke chamber, rate of rise in temperature, or a mixture of both. The multi-sensors are designed to be less prone to false triggering due to the sensors working together to determine if there is a fire. Once activated, the sounders will sound and the system will trigger the discharge of water mist extinguishant for 10 minutes. The nozzle has been specifically developed to discharge a spray pattern and tiny water droplets capable of suppressing an area of 16m² and controlling an area of 32m². The discharge of mist over the room, covering a large surface area, cools the heat element and disrupts the oxygen helping to extinguish the fire and prevent reignition. During the 10 minutes of water mist discharge, it creates a survivable environment to either escape or to be able to stay where they are until assistance arrives.
The UltraGuard system is fitted with an auto dialler or alternatively the installation engineer can link it up to an existing ARC/Care-line system. A message is automatically sent when the system has triggered and will contact your preferred nominees with an automated message.
What is Legionella?
Legionella is the bacteria which is known for causing Legionnaires' disease. Naturally found widespread throughout natural water sources, such as ponds and rivers, it is more common to have an outbreak of the illness from overexposure from purpose-built systems where water is maintained at a temperature which encourages growth. These purpose-built systems can vary, both in work and domestic environments, including cooling towers, hot and cold water systems, and spa pools.
How is Legionella controlled in the UltraGuard system?
The UltraGuard personal protection system is a purpose-built water system which does require to be maintained. It is advised that the system is treated 6 monthly to ensure that the water is safe when it is discharged upon activation.
How does the treatment work?
The treatment is a course of EndoSan, which is a solution of hydrogen peroxide making it a powerful, highly effective, broad spectrum disinfectant. When correctly applied to water, it will disinfect through an oxidisation process, eliminating micro-organisms and degrading into only water and oxygen without any harmful disinfection by-products (DBPs).
We would advise that the treatment / maintenance of the system is carried out by a trained person. For more information on this service, get in touch by email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0800 612 6537.
