Fire Protection Engineering for Challenging Industrial Applications

Fire Protection Engineering for Challenging Industrial Applications

Industrial fire protection engineering encompasses a wide variety of buildings, industrial facilities processes, and occupancies that typically offer more challenging fire protection hazards.

Whether the hazard is chemical processing, oil refining and petroleum processing, power generation, or high-hazard storage, these unique applications require a detailed hazard and risk analysis to define a fire protection strategy that provides for life safety and aligns with your risk mitigation strategies.

Specialized Evaluations for Industrial Hazards

Our industrial fire protection consulting team recognizes that industrial applications are highly specialized and often require significant evaluation and analysis to determine all of the hazards to life, property and business continuity.

Our experienced and knowledgeable fire protection engineers understand the challenges you face, and we can help you implement the cost-effective solutions that will reduce your exposure, establish compliance with applicable codes and standards, and align with established industry practices.
