A fire can be devastating for any community. But in a hospital or healthcare centre many patients are ill, immobile and totally reliant on others for their safety, the dangers border on the unthinkable. Except for those whose job it is to think. Drax Services work with your site to plan how to prevent such a disaster in the first place.

Not only is there an immediate threat to lives but there are also longer term consequences. Important facilities may become unavailable while repairs or rebuilding takes place, leading to further threats to patients' wellbeing. Financial losses incurred by the blaze are likely to take their toll on future services too.

Drax have produced a number of white papers to better understand strategies for reducing unwanted alarms and gain a greater insight into the solutions available using new technologies to keep your premises and people safe from fire.

We can support a wide range of systems including:
  • Fire Alarms
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Air Sampling Smoke Detection (ASD)
  • Fixed & Portable Fire Extinguishing
  • Fire Suppression
  • Radio Fire Alarm Systems
  • Public Address and Voice Alarm Systems
  • Disabled Refuge
  • Leak Detection Systems 
Drax Services provide numerous healthcare facilities with life safety solutions and have more than twenty years of experience in this industry. We have had the pleasure of working with local site hospitals such as Lister, Colchester General and Chase Farm to trusts spread over several locations and the challenges they bring; Guys & St Thomas, City Hospital Sunderland, East London NHS Trusts and Northwick Park.

We work with specialist Cancer Treatment Centres, Moorfields Eye Hospital, Care Homes, a number of Mental Health Trusts and we also have a large database of Medical Research Clients such as Parexel and MRC. It is for this reason and expertise that during 2016 we were proud to gain LPP status. You can read more here.
