Our Services


DesignFire is a company dedicated to producing comprehensive design for fire protection systems. With extensive experience in sprinkler, detection, special hazards and much more, in industrial, commercial and offshore industries. additionally, we are recognised as competent fire safety practioners (CFSP)

DesignFire comprises a team of highly motivated and dynamic professionals whose depth experience are a valuable asset to the company and our clients.

We produce design and documentation packages with all of the necessary information to assess, purchase, install and commission any type of fire protection system.

Fire Sprinkler Systems

DesignFire has been providing quality solutions for many industries and clients. Fire safety, fire protection systems which includes all services, needs dedicated expertise for which we’re proud to say we provide every day to our broad selection of clients. Most of which are continuing clients which is a testimony in itself.

Materials and its behaviour depending on;

  • System design and verification
  • Full Hydraulic Calculations Detailed
  • Design drawings
  • Material Take Off Sheets
  • Fittings Bill of Materials

We can provide Fire Sprinkler System designs based on many years of experience, using the best equipment available in the world, for your particular project.

Fire Detection Systems

With the modern technologies available today we can easily detect the early symptoms of a fire. We can sense the sudden rise in temperature within a room or scan for the infra red radiation from a distant flame. We can process the many different forms of detection and produce the much needed warning to protect life, plant and property.

Designing the correct solution can be as easy as placing a light fitting. Knowing how to integrate this thinking into a much larger picture takes much more careful thought and sometimes innovative engineering.

Getting the balance right. We would not wish to connect our light fitting solely to a large power station. Likewise we need to ensure the fire detection system is designed to protect life and property without costing the earth.

Water & Foam Deluge Systems

Sprinklers are the simplest form of fire protection but some risks demand a different solution. Water Deluge Systems provide total risk protection, for example

  • Road and Rail Tunnels
  • LPG Vessels (Bullets / Spheres)
  • Transformers & Turbine Protection
  • Cooling Towers

We provide design to suit relevant standards, best. The piping network is hydraulically balanced and calculated utilising the latest computer based hydraulic calculations programs, and many years of experience to determine the most efficient, functional & cost effective piping designs for each project.

The Deluge System design encompasses such things as

  • Response time
  • Designed correctly (functionality & operational)
  • Future Maintenance

Analysis techniques include

  • Risk analysis
  • Nozzle type and placement
  • Detection and activation methodology
  • Maintenance Planning

Gas Detection

In situations where there are materials which may be the very cause of a serious fire or even and explosion, we need to limit this possibility by detecting a build up of flammable gas.
Toxic gas is also a problem in many process plants. Personnel may be subject to the risk of asphyxiation, poisons or contaminants.

There are standards or codes dictating how to put together the best means of gas early warning systems. Although not comprehensive, we need to incorporate into our design the following elements:

Materials and its behaviour depending on;

  • Locations, whether collective or source
  • Temperature of material
  • Ambient temperature
  • Possibility of leak or spillage
  • Location of ignition source
  • Personnel access

Experience and risk analysis provide some means of producing a design. The customer understands the process systems best. A combination of this thinking is the common sense approach.

DesignFire know how to make good use of all of these principles to engineer the best solution.

Emergency Warning and Intercommunication Systems

Early detection of a fire is of no use if personnel are not alerted promptly. Using multiple speakers or audible alarms are the best way to evacuate a fire risk area. Australian and international standards dictate the required sound levels required to warn building occupants. Careful consideration to the building materials, furnishings and obstructions make sure that these minimum standards are achieved.

During emergency situations a communication system dedicated for the fire and rescue teams is invaluable when fighting fire, evacuating personnel or providing early warning. DesignFire integrate all of these systems to provide a cost effective solution.

Gas Extinguishing Systems

DesignFire provide detailed design packages for all Gaseous Fire Detection and Suppression Systems. Our personnel have been extensively trained and have the technical expertise to provide the best system to meet the risk requirements whether its:

  • FM 200
  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
  • Argonite Inergen Novec and Saphire
  • The detection and actuating systems integrate into the overall system ensuring 24 hour availability and automatic release upon demand.

As part of our design package, we supply full computer based system calculations, detailed drawings of piping, hangers, equipment schedules and overall system schematics. Not forgetting the necessary operators and maintenance documentation.

Drawing office

With a fully equipped CAD drafting office we have the ability to produce multiple discipline detailed design drawings in Autocad or Revit. All inaccordance with Australian drafting standards AS 1100.

With more and more projects requiring electronic data we have all necessary facilities to meet with all client requirements whether in printed or electronic form.


DesignFire providing fire services solutions since 1999.
