Technical Seminar - Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems Seminar 2014 (Sydney)


16 September - 18 September 2014


The past year saw many cases of commercial kitchen fires in Australia, causing tens of thousands of dollars in lost revenue. Some restaurants may take  months to recover, while most go out of business completely. Commercial kitchens are high fire risk environments. These fires can get out of control very quickly, whether in a restaurant, hotel, school or hospital. However, catastrophic situations are avoidable if the right fire suppression systems are installed.


At this seminar, you will learn about the ANSUL R-102 and PIRANHA Fire Suppression Systems which will quickly detect and suppress fires before they become uncontrollable. We will also discuss Kitchen Suppression Standards (UL 300) and next generation technologies in Kitchen Fire Suppression for modern kitchens.

Innovative Solutions for Efficient and Productive Buildings


23 - 24 September 2014 : Australian Technology Park, Eveligh, NSW


Across Australia we are seeing investment in the retrofit of thousands of older buildings in a bid to cut energy usage and reduce emissions. Faced also with the development of many new builds which offer higher premium offerings, many property owners see the upgrade and refit of their facilities as essential if they are to remain competitive and attract and retain tenants.

The National Emergency Response Show


23 - 25 September 2014 : Exhibition Park in Canberra


Australian Emergency Services are second to none and the impressive response we saw to the floods in Queensland and New South Wales, to the bushfires in Victoria, Tasmania and more recently in the Blue Mountains, are indicative of the commitment and professional approach from governments, private sector and volunteer organisations. However, in our swiftly changing world, we can never become complacent. The National Emergency Response Show (ERS) is designed to maintain Australia's position at the forefront of available technology and innovation. Our goal is to create the world's preeminent show for disaster and emergency management.
