Fire & Gas Mapping

Fire and Gas detection systems are of paramount importance to protect personnel, plant, product, and reputation. Micropack specialise in the design, provision, and implementation of high integrity fire and gas detection systems to significantly reduce the risk of incidents and spurious alarms.

A rich consulting history

Working closely with clients’ needs, the methods we use combined, with real-world field experience, allows our consultants to optimize the design and achieve the best possible balance between safety and economy.

There has long been a requirement in hazardous industries to provide safety measures for the protection of plants and personnel. One means of detecting containment loss relates to the use of fire and gas detection equipment. Often referred to as pioneers in the field of ‘Fire and Gas Mapping,’ Micropack has been at the forefront of the industry since the late 1990s.

This practice, through performance/ risk-based design, improves safety and reduces operating costs by ensuring that the number of devices used is minimized while the required level of safety is maintained. Micropack Engineers are respected globally as having trusted expert knowledge in F&G design.

Workers talking at Oil Industry

Our team of consultants can advise on matters such as:

  • Designing optimised fire and gas detector layouts
  • Performance target definition
  • Recommend appropriate alarm, control actions and voting
  • Conduct site surveys
  • Review third party designs
  • Training, 3rd party accredited course
  • Support for other design consultancies
  • Use of HazMap3D F&G mapping software
  • Testing of 3rd party detectors
  • Recommend detector selection (technology/type)


Fire and Gas Detection systems should play a crucial role in Loss Prevention on many sites.
