Tower fires a wake-up call for safety standards
JV brings world-class Eurotech fire detection to Bahrain market
The spate of high-rise fires in the region is a "serious warning" that best practice safety standards need to be implemented, according to Yusuf Abdulrahman Fakhro, director of Bahrain-based Yusif bin Yusif Fakhro (YBYF).
“Human lives, homes and resources are of paramount importance to organisations and society at large. We must take the spate of fire-related incidences as serious warning signs.
"We must take measures to ensure that the right fire safety systems are in place, across the board,” Fakhro said in a media statement.
YBYF division Safe & Sound has recently joined forces with a leading provider of international standard fire safety systems, Eurotech Fire Systems.
The JV brings the nationally and internationally certified fire detection system Eurotech, which has a strong presence in Oman and the UAE, to Bahrain.
Fakhro said this is a "first of its kind" in Bahrain, and that Eurotech features one of the most experienced and technically qualified teams in the fire detection and alarm industry, offering implementation, management and overall maintenance services.
Ajai Datta, GM of Safe & Sound, said the JV would be looking to introduce Eurotech’s comprehensive product range to residential and commercial property developers in the public and private sector, as well as to real estate owners, contractors and to industry at large in Bahrain.
