Asset Tracking

Our new Assetwhere range of products are designed to help you locate life safety related assets using the latest wireless and GPS technologies. Small discreet battery powered wireless transmitters capable of transmitting more than 500,000 times before a replacement is needed can be affixed to normally static items such as fire doors, fire extinguishers and escape chairs.

For those items that get moved around site, hospital beds, wheelchairs, keys, tools, ladders and vehicles then we have a range of wireless and GPS transmitters suitable for both internal and external use.

Our sophisticated portal allows management to monitor and track the whereabouts of equipment using google maps and zoom-in to precisely locate items using overlaid Autocad drawings. Reports can also be downloaded to show the availability and use of fixed assets.
 

Compliance Tools

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005 introduced legislation that makes anyone managing a building or workplace with staff, responsible for fire safety. Compliance with the legislation starts with producing a fire risk assessment and if there is an automatic fire detection and alarm system then there are both checks and routine maintenance that have to be carried out regularly.

Drax Technology has a range of solutions to help manage the alarms, both genuine and unwanted, when they occur as well as the various checks and maintenance that have to be completed. Whether you are responsible for one small fire alarm system or many systems located miles apart our solutions utilise the latest technology to make it easy to access the data we collect for you.
