Leader in traditional and complex projects, leader in local or remote areas
GLB Fire protection activities extend locally or in remote area
Our various projects apply to industrial, institutional and commercial sectors. Irrespective to the complexity of your project, our team will develop innovative conceptions. Have a look to our fire protection system realizations.
AUTOMATIC SPRINKLERS – SENIOR RESIDENCE: We are very experienced in the design, installation and inspection of automatic sprinklers for senior residences. The security of seniors is important to us. Our realizations spread across Québec and in remote areas. Have a look to the interactive map.
GLB Fire protection was selected to design and install fire protection systems for the recycling and sorting high technology center the most performing in North America located in Québec, St-Augustin-de-Desmaures !

École de formation en mécanique incendie
This school brings together several programs in building maintenance and industrial mechanics. Different educational pavilions presenting the different specialties shall reflect labor market conditions. GLB Fire Protection was selected to build the training facilities in fire protection mechanics. This project involved significant challenges that included the setup of multiple fire protection systems while representing different manufacturers for each type of systems as well.
In a defined space, we cleverly installed the following systems to ease the training of future fire protection trainees in the most practical and representative facilities of labor market conditions.
The training stations included:
- Wet & dry pipe systems, preaction systems;
- Foam systems with and without fire pumps;
- Special hazard suppression systems;
- Fire alarm Panels;
- Fire pumps vertical & horizontal;
Kativik School Board - Kiluutaq School
Kiluutaq school is a primary and secondary school of the Kativik School Board. It is located in Umiujaq, in northwest of Quebec. GLB Fire Protection designed and installed fire protection systems which mainly involved automatic sprinklers – wet pipe systems.
The new TELUS Center certified Tier III for its design by the Uptime Institute, is the first TELUS Internet data center built according to LEED standards (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). In this mega project of about 65 M $, GLB had the delicate mandate to achieve the fire protection of this mega internet data hosting center. Indeed, to meet LEED requirements, GLB designed several fire protection systems using the Novec 1230 technology. Being eligible in LEED certification projects, Novec 1230 was installed to protect state-of the-art equipment that provide continuous, uninterrupted and unfluctuating power to multiple storage servers.
GLB was selected amongst competitors because of their systems appropriately designed for the implementation of a fire protection project in a large-scale plant. Indeed, an addressable fire alarm system, an automatic wet pipe sprinkler system, a preaction system as well as a fire pump were installed to protect this plant which supplies major wind parks of Quebec.
In this substation project involving a unique and harmonious architecture with its surrounding environment, GLB proceeded to the design and installation of an addressable fire alarm system and a sophisticated automatic sprinkler system that included a fire pump and preaction systems. In addition, the critical section of the building where energy from wind turbines is processed and redirected was protected using two Novec 1230 systems. This substation collects the electricity produced by each turbine and transmits that electricity to Hydro-Québec. In this control building, the staff conducts operation management and maintenance. These facilities include also several areas: maintenance workshop, dining room for staff, storage, training center for workers etc.
Defense Construction Canada
GLB Fire Protection was mandated to carry out modifications of automatic wet pipe sprinkler systems and proceeded to the installation of a FM-200 system to protect the distribution sector 911 of Valcartier military base.
Local community service centre - Kangiqsujuaq
A local community service centre was built in Kangiqsujuaq in Nunavik. GLB Fire Protection designed and installed automatic sprinkler systems to ensure fire protection of this building according to standards in force. We are proud to associate our expertise to this local community service centre of Northern Québec.
Raglan Mine - Katinniq
Canadian Coast Guard Fleet - Sipu Muin
GLB Fire Protection conducted the replacement of the Halon 1301 fire protection system which had become non regulatory. The challenge of this particular project resided on the design of an effective fire protection system despite permanent room air leakages in the 5 compartments to protect. Our design team selected the advanced technology of Stat-X aerosol fire suppression which was perfectly adapted for such conditions. In this application to a coast guard fleet, this technology add extra extinguisher agent compensating for unaccounted room leakages and guarantee optimal protection.
A total of 22 STAT-X generators were installed on the Sipu Muin to protect a total of 5 engine compartments.
Recycling & Eco-Centre - Saint-Augustin
Erected at a cost of 20 million $, the new recycling & Eco-Centre of Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures is one of the largest of its kind in North America. Nighty percent of sorting and processing materials are automated with optical drives. The centre generates plus-value to materials such as construction, renovation and demolition materials for the Quebec region and the East of the province.
GLB Fire Protection installed fire protection systems for the high-tech sorting & recycling complex and the dust collection system.
