Thanks to a Sprinkler System designed and maintained by Fire Security (Sprinkler Installations) Ltd, a potentially more damaging fire was averted at a Haverhill factory leading to praise from the fire service.

Two engines from Haverhill were called to Marchant Manufacturing after the building became heavily smoke-logged. The fire had started in a recycling machine at the factory but firefighters were only required to spend 30 minutes at the scene, thanks to the Sprinkler System.

Pat Dacey, Suffolk Fire and Rescue’s district manager for St Edmundsbury, said: “The

sprinkler head right over the machine actually contained the fire over one single machine.

“The sprinkler without doubt saved the whole factory”.
