Fire Detection and Alarm:
The function of the fire detection and alarm system is to properly identify the incident, raise the occupant alarm, and then notify emergency response professionals. This helps to save lives and protect property.
A smoke aspiration system is an active type of detector which is capable of continuous air sampling which provides the earliest possible warning of an impending fire hazard. Modern fire alarm systems that we use are comprehensive, advanced, fully automated, ones that create a network of various detectors. They even automatically send out a signal to the fire station or other important contact numbers the moment they detect a fire, a gas leak, or smoke, alerting the building’s occupants before a fire even happens. They can be equipped with output functions, which include shutting off air handling fans to prevent smoke migration, and shutting down operations such as chemical movement through piping in the alarmed area. They may also activate fans to extract smoke, which is a common function in large atria spaces. These systems can also activate discharge of gaseous fire extinguishing systems, or pre-action sprinkler systems. Despite featuring advanced technology, unlike the old ones, these modern systems are easy to use.
We design and install fire alarm systems using the NFPA standards to give the best protection for respective applications, ensuring speedy evacuation and minimal disruption in the event of an emergency. This is backed up by our Fire Systems Maintenance contracts and 24-hour call out service, ensuring your system is kept in full working order and is fully compliant with current regulations.
Apart from the accurate fire detection, it is equally important to outline desired protection objectives during a fire and establish a program that addresses these goals. Therefore, the basic question to be asked by the property’s manager is, “What maximum fire size and loss can the institution bear?” With this information, goal oriented protection can be implemented.
During the incipient period, a trained person with portable fire extinguishers may be an effective first line of defense. However, should an immediate response fail or the fire grow rapidly.
Analogue extinguisher capabilities can be surpassed within the first minute. More powerful suppression methods, either fire hydrant system or automatic sprinkler system, then become essential.
Fire protection experts generally agree that automatic sprinklers represent one of the single most significant aspects of a fire management program. Properly designed, installed, and maintained, these systems can overcome deficiencies in risk management, building construction, and emergency response. They may also provide enhanced flexibility of building design and increase the overall level of fire safety.
Intelligent Addressable systems represent the current state-of-the-art in fire detection, alarm and protection technologies. Unlike conventional alarm methods, these systems monitor and control the capabilities of each alarm initiating and signalling device through microprocessors and system software. In effect, each intelligent fire alarm system is a small computer overseeing and operating a series of input and output devices that radiate throughout the space or building .Each device is monitored and controlled.
What makes us stand apart is that by using the standard as a base we design by understanding the ultimate system type, and selected components, the building construction and value, its use or uses, the type of occupants, content value, and mission sensitivity.
