WES+ construction site fire safety system in use
  • VPS FireAlert Wes+ devices can be deployed as soon as the cabins are on aconstruction site and the build is out of the ground.
  • Fire Points are placed according to your fire plan
    • Normally at every stairwell or lift shaft – and can be added as the build progresses.
