Fire Detection System
When combined with other elements of an emergency response and evacuation plan, Automatic Fire Detection Systems can significantly reduce Property Damage, Personal injuries, and loss of life from fire in the workplace. Their main function is to quickly identify a developing fire and alert occupants and emergency response personnel before extensive damage occurs. Automatic Fire Detector may also directly connect to an alarm monitoring center and control panel to the networking interface with BMS.
Benefits of Fire Detection & Alarm Systems:
- An early warning benefit, low cost, and opportunity to place the device in chosen locations.
- Smoke /heat detectors are best in areas where early detection and warning of fire are critical to preserving life.
- The fire pump, elevator, sprinkler, flow & tamper switch can be connected to
the fire alarm to save lives.
Fire Protection Systems
Fire Protection System (FPS) is a system that directly suppresses or controls fire, when occurs in a building and tends to spreads out. Usually, it consists of a fire hydrant, hose reel, and other water-based fixed firefighting systems (FFFS), such as sprinkler systems, water mist systems, etc. The fire incident in the generator room, sub-station, server room or data center, kitchen area are extinguished by special gases such as Carbon-di-oxide, FM 200 or Novec 1230 are also a part of the Fire Protection System.
Its purpose is to enhance life safety and lower the possible property damage by fire.
FPS can be classified into a few types:
- Fire Hydrant Systems: It consists of a Fire Pump, Hose Reels, a Pillar Hydrant Etc. The Fire pump supplies water in a certain pressure and adequate flow rate to extinguish the fire by Hose Pipe, Pillar Hydrants, Etc
- Fire Sprinkler Systems: A fire sprinkler system is an active fire protection method, consisting of a water supply system, providing adequate pressure and flowrate to a water distribution piping system, onto which fire sprinklers are connected. These Sprinklers are also connected with Hydrant System.
- Fire Suppression Systems: A fire suppression system is a term to describe the use of inert gases and chemical agents to extinguish a fire. It’s also called Clean Agent Fire Suppression. The system typically consists of the agent, agent storage containers, agent release valves, fire detectors, fire detection system (wiring control panel, actuation signaling), agent delivery piping, and agent dispersion nozzles. The fire gets extinguished, within a minute of activation and everything is automatic. Gas Suppression Systems are generally used in concealed rooms. The principle used by Gas Suppression System is by breaking the Fire Triangle, the fire ceases to exist. In the room, protected by Gas Suppression System, there are various detectors placed at various locations. Each detector constantly monitors the room for signs of fire.
As soon as the fire is detected, an alarm is sounded, to the personnel to evacuate the entire room. Then, a gas-like, Novec, Clean Agent or Co2 is released in the enclosed room. Thus, the oxygen in the room is rapidly reduced, to a level where fire cannot exist.
Fire Suppression Systems
Fire suppression systems always consist of at least one component designed to extinguish a fire by applying an external substance. Many fire suppression systems also consist of fire detection systems and signaling mechanisms designed to alert workers to the problem and prompt responsible persons to take further suppressive actions. The detection of fire often automatically activates the extinguishing component of the system; however, some fire suppression systems require manual activation.
Benefits Fire Suppression Systems
- The benefits of all types of clean suppression systems are that they are environment-friendly and don’t deplete the ozone.
- Safe to use where people are present, a suppression system can be installed in both occupied and unoccupied rooms.
- It will diffuse the fire quickly (10 seconds) and
also minimize the amount of soot and smoke
that fills a room during a fire.
Aspiration Smoke Detection
The installation, testing, and commissioning of aspirating smoke detection (ASD) systems are governed by several codes and standards. We follow codes and standards that must be referenced while designing ASD systems as National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code (NFPA 72,75,76).
Benefits of Aspiration Systems
- Earliest warning detection with the highest level of false alarm immunity
- Reduced installation and maintenance costs
- Extended device lifetime using advanced filtration techniques
- Remote monitoring capabilities and richer
reporting via TCP/IP connectivity
About Expansion Joint solution
A concrete Expansion Joint or Control Joint is a gap that allows the concrete to expand and contract as/when the temperature changes. It forms a break between the concrete and other parts of a structure to allow movement without causing stress, which can lead to cracking.
Benefits of Expansion Joint:
- Provides safety of the building from cracks or breakage due to temperature change or in the event of an earthquake.
- Stop the fire propagation if the sealant used in the expansion joint is fireproof.
Some Fireproof sealing materials are used in Cable and Pipe Penetrations of sensitive locations to avoid the risk of Fire. For example, Fire Rated Collars, Wrap Strips, Angle, Gasket, Sleeve Joints, etc., are used as Cable and Pipe Penetration Seals that resist the passage of smoke and Fire by expanding and collapsing combustible Cable or Pipes, forming a dense char.
Benefits of Cable Penetration
- Ensure Life Safety and Property Safety as passive Fire Protection Devices.
- They can be used in Data Centers,
Server Rooms, Marine Ships, etc., to
protect those places from Fire Risks.
Lightning Protection System
A lightning protection system (LPS) is essential to any building. This part contains information about the risk of lightning strikes, lightning characteristics, and the resulting parameters for simulating the effects of lightning strikes. We design & work for risk management of LPS following IEC 62305-2 (EN 62305-2)/NFPA 780/BNBC for risk analysis to determine whether lightning protection is required. This method can be used to simply determine the class of LPS and establish a complex protection system against lightning electromagnetic impulses (LEMP) following IEC 62305-2 (EN 62305-2)/NFPA 780/BNBC.
Benefits of Lightning Protection Systems
- Reduction of electromagnetic radiating effects within the protected structure.
- Spreading of lightning currents over several down conductors.
- Economic Contributes to overall
equipotential between the
conducting structures and ground.
A fire door is a door with a fire-resistance rating (sometimes referred to as a fire protection rating for closures) used as part of a passive fire protection system to reduce the spread of fire and smoke between separate compartments of a structure and to enable safe egress from a building or structure.
Benefits of Fire Door
- Fire-rated doors help facilitate the safe and quick evacuation of occupants.
- Fire-rated doors help minimize damage to the property.
- The fire escape door is built with such care that
there is hardly any chance of breaching the security
of these doors.
