Cynex ITS has a wide range of products that will satisfy any need for firefighting. Some systems are designed to be fitted onto regular fire engines giving almost unlimited firefighting capacity. Others are designed to be mobile inside buildings or vessels while others will be able to navigate any terrain or urban environment. Each system has particular advantages when it comes to mobility, readily availability, or amount of firefighting capacity. The most powerful systems utilize a pump to drive the system. This is the case for the pump-driven units and the all-terrain vehicles.

Fire Risk Assessment
A fire risk assessment is a process involving the systematic evaluation of the factors that determine the hazard from fire, the likelihood that there will be a fire, and the consequences if one is to occur.
There are both qualitative and quantitative methods of risk assessment that can be used. Semi- quantitative points schemes can also employ.
Cynex ITS have been given license by the Ghana National Fire Service. Being a member of the Fire Detection Installers Association and National Fire Protection Association, we have also been awarded a certificate as a company for fire risk assessment. This again provides you with assurances that our staffs are competent and that our procedures and processes have been rigorously examined and assessed by a 3rd party certification body.

A fire risk assessment involves a physical inspection of the building to determine the adequacy of the existing fire precautions and the need for any additional measures. However, of equal importance to the physical inspection is a review of fire safety management in the organization and consideration of the human factors – how people will respond to an emergency and whether they will take appropriate action.
There are practical limits to the extent of the survey and evaluation of the fire precautions. For example, in undertaking a fire risk assessment, we would not carry out detailed engineering evaluation or testing of fire protection systems, emergency escape lighting, etc. However, we would inspect such systems visually. Where appropriate, we would identify the need for any further engineering evaluation, which we would be able to carry out if required.
Similarly, the survey of the construction of the building would extend to readily accessible areas of the building only. We would not undertake destructive exposure. While we would inspect above false ceilings, where possible, this would be on a sampling basis only. Again, if we considered that a more thorough examination of such areas was necessary, we would highlight this to you.
In the case of a fire risk assessment aimed at satisfying the requirements of legislation, the objective of the risk assessment will primarily be the safety of the occupants of the building. While some of the recommendations we may make could also be beneficial to property protection, we would not be specifically addressing this objective or the objective of avoiding business interruption from fire. However, we do have the expertise to address these objectives, if required.
The scope of the survey involved in a fire risk assessment would include the following particular aspects of fire safety:
- Fire loss experience
- Fire hazards
- Fire prevention
- Storage and handling of flammable liquids and gases
- Means of escape
- Flammability of linings
- Emergency escape lighting
- Fire safety signs and notices
- Fire detection and fire alarm systems
- Fire extinguishing systems and appliances
- Smoke control systems
- Facilities for use by the fire and rescue service
- Arrangements for management of fire safety
- Training and drills
- Testing and maintenance
Fire Sprinkler System
Sprinkler system is the simplest and most common type of fire sprinkler installation. This system employs automatic and closed type sprinkler heads, which are connected to a water-filled piping system. The sprinklers contain either a heat-responsive glass bulb or fusible element that prohibits water from discharging from the sprinkler’s orifice. The water is contained until the heat from the fire activates the element, causing its release, allowing the water to discharge to the heat source.
Our systems are frequently installed in factories, warehouses, office buildings, retail stores, and residences where the potential for freezing does not exist.
Fire Sprinkler Systems are made up of a series of components including; Stop Valve, Alarm Valve, Fire Sprinkler (head), Alarm Test Valve, and Motorized Alarm Bell (Gong).
There’s no doubt that our technology offers superior fire protection and our fire suppression systems can stop or minimize a potentially damaging fire before it does irreversible damage.
Cynex ITS can design, furnish and install all types of fire sprinkler systems including wet pipe systems, pre-action systems, and Antifreeze Sprinkler System as well as standpipe systems and fire pumps.
Dry Pipe Sprinkler Systems
A sprinkler system employing automatic sprinklers that are attached to a piping system containing air or nitrogen under pressure.
The release of the air or nitrogen permits the water pressure to open a dry pipe valve, allowing the water to then flow into the piping system and out through the opened sprinklers.
Wet pipe sprinkler systems
The most common type of sprinkler system. A sprinkler system employing automatic sprinklers attached to a piping system containing water. This piping system is connected to a water supply so that water discharges immediately from sprinklers opened by heat from a fire.
A sprinkler system employing closed sprinklers attached to a piping system that is connected to a water supply through a valve that is opened by the operation of a fire detection system installed in the same areas as the sprinklers. When this valve opens, water flows into the piping system and discharges out through the open sprinklers.
Antifreeze Sprinkler System
A wet pipe sprinkler system employing automatic sprinklers that are attached to a piping system that contains an antifreeze solution and that is connected to a water supply. The antifreeze solution is discharged, followed by water, immediately upon operation of sprinklers opened by heat from a fire.
Vehicle Fire Suppression
Fires in on-road vehicles such as a bus or truck present a great deal of danger to the operator and passengers, not only from the fire itself but also from the potential danger of exiting the vehicle in traffic.
Cynex ITS systems are ideal for the rigorous environments in these vehicles, providing the durability needed to survive the constant movement of the vehicle, combined with the ever-changing environmental conditions – temperature extremes, dirt, vibration all combine to create a challenge many fire suppression systems cannot meet.
A fire in the engine compartment of passenger vehicles is a very serious situation. An engine fire can grow very large very quickly, threatening lives and property. If the vehicle is moving, the airflow through the engine compartment can make detection and suppression more difficult. Cynex ITS is proud to offer automatic fire detection systems that are specifically designed to work effectively in the conditions in which vehicles operate while offering superior fire protection.
The detection tubing is installed both above and behind the potential source of the fire. Upon detection the tubing will burst, triggering the release of the extinguishing agent, which results in fast and effective fire suppression.
The system is available with a manual release for driver activation as well as an audible alarm to alert the driver and passengers when the system is activated.
Fire Alarm System
The primary purpose of a fire indicator panel is to monitor each circuit, zone, or point for any condition (alarm signal or other abnormal condition); display the status of that condition, and operate any required output or outputs according to the approved design of the system. These outputs are typically for warning occupants on a fire alarm signal, notify the fire brigade, control the spread of heat, smoke, or fire; or used for a wide variety of other purposes.
Before I go any further it’s important to define a couple of terms used in this article, to provide both context and explanation of their meaning;
A circuit comprises an unbroken path (usually a pair of wires) along which an electric current exists or is intended or able to flow. In fire alarm terms this generally means the wiring connecting one or more detectors to the fire panel.
A zone is a group of one or more detectors, grouped by their common location or in the case of a collective circuit all of the detectors on that circuit. Another way to describe a zone is one of the following;
- One or more detectors on a single collective circuit or;
- One or more detectors, in a common location, defined in software on an addressable
- Standards also limit the number of detectors a zone may comprise
