i. Fire Detection & Alarm Systems:

We are specialists in fire detection & alarm systems for low, medium and high-risk
applications. Effective fire detection can prevent the disastrous and destructive
consequences of fire on people, objects and the environment. Good-quality detection
equipment is essential for early detection and subsequent sounding of the alarm. Every
company is unique, but GWORLD GHANA LIMITED has a fire protection solution for
every object in any sector.

Our high-quality detection equipment offers a comprehensive solution f or every

situation. In addition to detecting smoke and/or fire, a fire alarm system can also be
connected to tan extinguishing system or an evacuation alarm system.

ii. Sprinkler Systems:

Sprinkler systems are the most commonly applied automatic fire extinguishing systems,
because of their straightforward and effective functioning. A sprinkler system consists
of a water supply, alarm valves and a network of pipes with sprinklers installed
throughout the building. A sprinkler control unit monitors the system, which is
activated when a specific temperature is reached, causing water to be sprayed over
the fire.

iii. Gaseous Fire Suppression Systems:

In situations where the use of water is not possible or desirable, a gas extinguishing
system is a good alternative. Thanks to many years of experience, GWORLD GHANA
LIMITED has become an expert and specialist in the field of stationary gas extinguishing
systems. We are at your service to help assess the specific situation at your company,
in order to develop a customised solution.

GWORLD GHANA LIMITED prefers to apply the so called ‘green’ extinguishing agents, as
these cause no environmental impact and has no harmful effects on human beings. Our
supply programme consists of: Argon, Nitrogen, Argonite and CO2. In addition, we
supply chemical extinguishing gases like FM200, FE25 and Novec 1230, which are also
applied as Halon replacements. Also available are vehicles and kitchen suppression

iv. Foam Products & Extinguishing System:

Foam extinguishing systems are often applied in high-risk objects. The highly specific
and unique properties of extinguishing foam make it an extremely effective fire
fighting agent. For the protection of e.g. chemical stores and aeroplane hangars, high-
expansion foam installations are applied, while low-expansion foam installations are
used in the chemical and petrochemical industry. For the protection of production
halls, helicopter decks etc., foam water canons are used.

Research and development of extinguishing foams and the associated installations is a

major focus area at GWORLD. To carry out this work, we employ highly experienced
specialists. All the products in our comprehensive range of foam concentrates and
equipment have optimal extinguishing properties. They are moreover ecological and
have a long storage life.

v. Fire Extinguishers:

More than 85% of the fires in buildings can be put out successfully with a hand-held
extinguisher. Because of that f act, we focus a great deal of attention on the
reliability, ease of operation and extinguishing capacity of its fire extinguishers.

GWORLD has a full range of hand held and mobile fir e extinguishers of various
types: foam, powder and CO2 extinguishers.

Risks are part of our daily lives. Running a business is not possible without taking risks.
But these risks must be acceptable and aimed at ensuring the continuity of the
company. GWORLD Consultancy can offer your company support in the identification
of hazards and the quantification of these hazards in terms of risks. Measures to
reduce the risks can then be determined, based on the nature and extent of the
analysed risks.

Comprehensive fire protection begins in the design phase. Before the construction
process commences, it is vital that consideration is given to fire protection and the
risks that could endanger the continuity of the company. Our consultancy division
gladly provides excellent advice on fire protection.

The systems and equipment recommended by GWORLD comply with all statutory
regulations and standards; the same applies to the management and maintenance per
formed by us. Market demands and regulations with regard to fire protection are
constantly changing. In anticipation thereof GWORLD personnel undergo constant
further training.

GWORLD GHANA range of High Rise Escape Systems and other emergency response
systems uses a Controlled Descent Device (CDD) that adjusts to the user’s weight and
lets them descent at a rate of approximately 1 to 1.5 metres per second.
The CDD is attached to a wall-mounted boom (floor fixture also available). A special
wire rope is threaded through the CDD and at both ends of the rope is a flame proof,
patented escape suit. The user merely has to swing the boom over the point of egress
(window/balcony), get inside the Evac Suit (pictured below) and step off the ledge to

When the user reaches the ground, the other end of the wire rope (and thus the other
Evac Suit) is at the top, ready for the next user to come down. For example one
system on the 10th floor can safely evacuate 30 people in 8 minutes.

2. Instruments:

Gas detection instruments are used to determine the presence of toxic or

combustible gas in an atmosphere. Portable detectors can be worn by a user for
constant personal monitoring or can be used to detect a specific area for the
presence of toxic gas. Fixed system gas detectors are positioned in a permanent
location for constant monitoring of a particular area in a manufacturing facility or
processing operation, such as waste/water treatment, semiconductor
manufacturing, chemical and petroleum operations, pulp and paper plants, and
power utilities.

Fixed Systems

Detection systems that are integrated into a building’s operations are

called fixed and provide a constant monitoring and early detection
system for potentially harzardous operations of a facility. These
systems consist of a single or multi-point transmitter and a receiver
that continuously monitor for combustible or toxic gases, or the
presence of flame.

Portable Instruments

Compact gas monitors that measure gas levels to alarm when dangerous
conditions exist so that a user knows if the environment is IDLH or
when personal protective equipment is needed.

PDF created with pdfFactory Pro trial version
Fixed Systems

Fixed gas monitors stand guard over any location where toxic or combustible gases
or flame may become a hazard to personnel and property. In potentially hazardous
locations, gas monitors and transmitters continuously keep people and investments
safe from harm.

Toxic Transmitters

Stationary instruments that measure the level of toxic gases to protect

personnel from unseen gases. Transmitters may work alone or in
conjunction with a series of other instruments to protect entire areas
of a facility.

Combustible Transmitters

Stationary instruments used to detect the presence of combustible

gases quickly to minimize explosive hazards.

Flame Transmitters

Detectors that monitor a wide area to identify flames early in order to

protect personnel and property by providing warnings, alarms and
triggering automatic deluge systems.


Receivers accept input from 1 to 32 sensors or transmitters. These

receivers provide a central location for monitoring and typically include
relay contacts to provide warnings to personnel.


Monitors are a complete gas detection system composed of sensors,

transmitters, and a receiver in one package.

Sensor Technology

All transmitters use different technology to detect specific hazards

includes toxic, combustible or flame.


Detecting and analyzing an unseen threat can prevent serious injury.

But doing it instantly can save lives. Scott Health & Safety portable
instruments are designed to reliably sense the presence and levels
of harmful gases, clearly display the information, and let you do
your job safely and efficiently.

Supplied Air

Supplied air (or air supplied) refers to respirators that

provide the user with clean, breathable air from a self-
contained source, such as a cylinder, or via an airline
from a source outside the contaminated atmosphere.
Supplied air respirators are used in atmospheres that are
determined to be IDLH or Immediately Dangerous to Life
and Health. These NFPA and/or NIOSH-approved
respirators are used in a myriad of applications by
firefighters, industrial workers, first responders, and
military personnel.


A self-contained breathing apparatus or SCBA is

a device worn by rescue workers, firefighters,
and others to provide portable, breathable air
in a hostile, IDHL-environment. An SCBA can be
either an open or closed circuit.


An airline respirator provides a continuous

supply of air to the user via a hose connected to
stationary source of breathable air. Some
airline respirators also integrate a small
cylinder of compressed air into the system for
emergency escape from a dangerous
environment in case the airline hose is blocked
or severed.

PDF created with pdfFactory Pro trial version

Escape respirators are designed for use only to

egress from hazardous atmospheres within 5, 10
or 15 minutes. Some escape respirators are
used in conjunction with an airline to provide a
small source of air in emergencies where an
airline air source is severed.

Air Sources

External sources of air utilize compressed air

cylinder(s) to provide an external source of air
to the wearer of supplied air respirators. Air
sources can be fixed stationary units or mobile
for use on remote locations or in confined
spaces with an SCBA or airline respirators.
