Kidde Offers Free Brochure On Total Fire Protection

Total fire protection is the subject of an eight-page full-color brochure from Walter Kidde, Division of Kidde, Inc., of Wake Forest, N.C.

The company designs and manufacturers a complete line of fire protection equipment: portable extinguishers; pre-engineered systems; and large-scale, custom-engineered systems for major applications such as refineries, pipelines, tankers, satellite tracking stations, and energy storage facilities. Kidde also supplies the full spectrum of modern fire-fighting agents in the systems, including Halon 1301, carbon dioxide, high and low expansion foam, and the leading dry chemicals.

The attractive three-holepunched brochure states that in today's changing environment, it is becoming more important for companies to install in-depth safety and security systems that provide such functions as surveillance, detection, alarm, and suppression or inertion.

Walter Kidde can provide all phases of safety, security and protection system development from planning and surveying, through design and manufacturing, to commissioning, and after-sales service. Kidde's large-scale, engineered systems protect ships, planes, manufacturing processes and facilities, LNG plants, pipelines, computer centers, radio and TV stations, libraries, and satellite tracking stations around the world, and the company's sales and service facilities at present encircle the globe.

The publication points out that Walter Kidde has an experienced team of project management engineers who oversee each phase of a contract and their responsibilities include customer liaison, planning and engineering coordination, site installation construction, and system commissioning. An important segment of Kidde's commissioning operation is the training of customers' on-site safety teams in proper operation, inspection, and servicing of fire protection system equipment.

The brochure is well illustrated with color photos of various installations protected by Walter Kidde systems, such as the liquefaction facilities located at Arzew, Algeria, the Zeebrugge, Belgium LNG plant, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, a series of 75 turbine compressor pump stations inside Soviet Russia, various LNG projects from Japan and the USA, etc., as well as fire protection systems on huge LNG tankers.
