Drax Technology is a dynamic, innovative company with over 20 years of experience in their field and are one of the UK's leading independent providers of integrated fire protection, alarm management and other life safety related solutions.

Our focus

is to help organisations in the healthcare sector to meet the demands of managing modern buildings equipped with life safety equipment and systems.

We are committed

to ensuring the highest level of protection for people and property as well as assisting our customers, big and small, to comply with regulatory requirements.

Our ethos

is one of evolution rather than revolution; a strategy that ensures sophisticated, user friendly and reliable products are always delivered to our customers. We design products that help reduce their workload in an increasingly legislative environment.

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

Managing Alarms

Drax Technology’s software and hardware products allow organisations to manage alarms from many diverse systems. These systems may not otherwise be capable of being integrated because of procurement policies that have resulted in the purchase of systems from different manufacturers. Drax provides a cost-effective way to connect these systems. Data collected can be turned into reports that you can use not only to prove compliance but help ensure you receive value for money from your maintenance contractor.
Alarm management solutions from Drax Technology enable users to take full and direct control of all connected alarm systems to ensure the incidence of false alarms is reduced and provide data to help demonstrate compliance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005.
Drax Technology’s powerful AMX software has evolved into one of the most versatile alarm management platforms available. It is now the alarm management system of choice for many estates, facilities and security managers.

Remote Connectivity

Drax Technology supplies a range of hardware interfaces that ensure many different manufacturers systems can be seamlessly integrated to facilitate one alarm management solution. These interfaces enable Drax Technology accredited partners to deliver a solution using compliant and compatible components that provide a resilient, reliable and user-friendly alarm management system.

Connected technology allows users to access data showing activations from any internet-enabled device including laptops, desktops, tablets and smartphones.  This enhances system management, speeds up repair and reduces maintenance costs.

Asset Monitoring

Unlike many other enterprise level solutions, AssetWhere is simple to setup and use. From mapping where the life safety asset is located, to applying complex rules, users can be up and running within hours. Following our recommended four stages, businesses can see day-one improvements in operational performances, ranging from first-time-fix rates, productivity gains and reassurance that their building is compliant.

DIGITISE. Information from existing floor-plans, O&M manuals, service reports. Add images, supplier and maintenance company details, in fact any electronic file needed for future reference can be saved against individual life safety assets.

MAINTAIN. Monitor the performance and risk of the digitised life safety assets. Trigger automatic alerts, take data driven actions to carry out proactive maintenance and equipment replacement before faults occur.

CONNECT. Data streams from standalone sensors, building management systems and third-party software applications can be linked to the platform providing the possibility of interoperability between solutions.

TRANSFORM. Colliding these datasets provides the opportunity to integrate business rules, ultimately driving down operating costs, enhancing productivity and increasing business value.
