Our commercial systems cover data centres, museums and art galleries, archive facilities and medical record storage facilities. Fire Suppression is also provided for single user restaurants and multi-user food courts with Kitchen Protection Systems.
Within the Maintenance area our Essential Services team covers all Inspect, Test and Maintain functions for Local Council Annual Fire Safety Compliance along with the supply, contracting and installation of new fire protection equipment. In case of After Hours support being needed; we at Torvac have engaged an Australian based Call Centre that links directly to our on call team of technicians.
Our Training section provides end user training in the installed systems as well as the development of specialised on-site Fire & Evacuation plans and conducts the necessary training to support the National WHS legislation and Australian Standards requirements.
Torvac Solutions being Australian owned and managed has a dedicated team of professionals with a broad range of knowledge which has enabled us to secure clientele from Government, Commercial and Industrial sectors.
Advanced technical knowledge of Vigilant Fire and Evacuation Systems led to Torvac being offered a distributorship with TYCO Fire Products. Torvac is now an independent distributor of the full range of Tyco Fire Safety Protection products.
From early beginnings in 1985 as Fire Electricians and Sprinkler Fitters working on many major projects, strong foundations were formed which would later be utilised in the formation of Torvac Solutions, which was started in 2006. Since then there has been steady growth to what we have in 2013, being the 3 divisions within the business covering sales of products as a licensed distributor, the installation of Fire Suppression Systems and the maintenance of all fire protection equipment.
We have been involved with contracting projects in some of Sydney’s High Profile sites such as; Sutherland Hospital, St George Hospital, Ansto at Lucas Heights, various Optus and Corporate Data Centres, RSPCA Yagoona, Homebush Stadium and at the Australian Museum a major network of addressable fire and suppression systems. This work has been continued with Torvac gaining the ongoing maintenance work of all the Fire and Life Safety equipment at many of these projects.
The knowledge gained during nearly 30 years within the Fire Industry and a combined industry knowledge of over 100 years of continuous experience has enabled us to be in a strong position to have grown Torvac Solutions into a highly respected specialist contractor involved with problem free design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of Fire and Security systems.
