In terms of its empowerment objectives Firetech Projects Pty Ltd some 15 years ago established a joint venture company with the IT focused Intesol, establishing the 60% black empowerment company Firetech Intesol Projects.
As a systems integrator the core business of Firetech Projects Pty Ltd is the design, installation and maintenance of systems and the company supports all the reputable product and device suppliers, the final choice being driven by customer requirements in terms of specification, performance and price.
Firetech Projects has recently been involved in a number of high-profile installations covering the full range of its expertise. Many of these where speed of installation was a major priority. Firetech continues to deliver in terms of its 'fast-track' strategy. An example of a recent installation was a CCTV monitoring system for the fresh produce market in Johannesburg, the largest market in the country. Plagued with petty pilfering right through to major hold-ups, the market, traditionally a cash-based business needed to drastically improve its security system.
The R35 million contract was awarded to Firetech Projects who completed the entire project in just 3,5 months. At 46 sites wireless communication were installed that reported back to one central control room.
The fire suppression systems entails the installation of 198 x 45kg FM 200 cylinders that is monitored in the central control room. Cameras are also monitored in the central control room. Twelve monitors are active in the control room with two operator chairs (each having full access to the total CCTV system), the operators being able to manage the individual cameras over an Ethernet and ISDN line. Cameras not under direct control of the operators are managed in a pre-programmed sequence. The success of the system has reduced major crimes and petty criminal activites.
