An important aspect to all life safety systems is to ensure they perform as expected. In order to achieve this, good design practices are required. There are both local and international bodies that have documented and created standards that need to be followed for the Fire Detection Industry.  Knowing these standards and how they apply to the products and installation procedures is the most important aspect of Fire Detection Systems. Fitting a non-conforming product or selecting the incorrect product for an application is one of the main reasons why systems do not perform as expected.

At G2 we have employees registered with the SAQCC at various levels and certified up to Designer status. Please review our personnel profiles to view a full list of our qualifications and institute memberships.

We have excellent, unique, customised tools such as our Grafix design desk which provides a quick and accurate method of placing items on floor plans, verifying the design and producing Bill of Quantities (BoQ) in seconds for any of our brands of product.


Contact G2 to see how we can assist you with our quick design to BoQ service.
