Tragically, South Africa is in the midst of violent protests and looting. A number of provinces are being affected, and many businesses and properties have been damaged.
AASYS (Advanced Automated Systems) believe they have the products and technology to prevent and contain any further damage.
AASYS is the sole distributor of LIOS products in South Africa. Using LIOS’s world-leading technology, fibre optic cables are deployed as a sensing and condition-monitoring solution fit for a wide variety of different applications – including the monitoring of the perimeter of businesses and buildings.
“The acoustics technology allows you to distinguish specific sounds – whether it’s a truck or car, a group of people or an individual, someone cutting the fence or digging under it – and provides an early warning so you can react in time to prevent an incident,” explains AASYS CEO, Yoni Margalit. “In addition, this technology enables the monitoring of temperature near the fibre optic cable – ensuring the early detection of fires.”
AASYS is also the sole distributor of Dafo. The Dafo Wet Chemical Handheld units are extremely effective at putting out tyre fires. “As reported in the news, many trucks have been set on fire during the rioting, and we believe this product will be useful in preventing further damage.”
Then there’s AASYS’s FOG microcapsule technology. The microcapsules contain a fire-suppressant chemical which is added to a paint, and automatically burst on reaching a certain temperature, thereby extinguishing an approaching fire at a very early stage.
“The paint can be applied to any surface to make it fire suppressant,” says Margalit. “It’s especially useful in this situation to protect armoured vehicles, petroleum tanks, delivery trucks and shop walls.”
AASYS takes pride in offering the most advanced condition monitoring and fire prevention and suppression systems in the world.
“This technology enables clients to save lives and protect assets, while ensuring businesses and industries stay up and running at all times,” says Margalit. “The damage is already severe, but we’d like to put our cutting-edge solutions to work to help prevent and minimise any further disruptions to our economy, and to the businesses which drive it.”
