FIRE DETECTION SYSTEM
One critical part of an organization’s facilities management is to ensure the correct maintenance of any automatic fire detection and alarm system fitted in the building. The British Standard (BS5839 part 1) covering all aspects of the design, installation, and maintenance of fire alarm systems has recently been revised and includes changes that may affect how you approach your maintenance planning.
New Fire Legislation For Maintaining Fire Systems
Appoint a responsible person to attend to your fire procedures. This person will ensure the system is regularly tested, inspected and serviced and all events are recorded in the logbook.
Carry out a Risk Assessment. Every commercial organization has a legal responsibility to carry out a fire risk assessment, even if a fire certificate has been issued. If you employ 5 persons or more, these findings must be recorded.
Consult with all interested parties. It is important that you consult with persons including your system supplier, fire officer, building controller and insurer over any aspect of change in building use or shape to ensure you will still be compliant with the Code.
Ensure all relevant personnel is trained in the everyday testing and use of the equipment. The fire detection and alarm system is your hardest working employee and could one day save a life or save your business – look after it.
Make sure all relevant personnel are trained in the everyday testing and use of the equipment. Don’t forget – the fire detection and alarm system is your hardest working employee and could one day save a life or save your business – look after it.
Appoint a reputable company to provide servicing in accordance with BS 5893-1: 2002. The appointment of a reputable service organization should consider an approved third-party certification under LPS1014 or the BAFE SP203 schemes. This means they will fully support your system (irrespective of manufacturer or software protocol) by providing trained engineers, spares and fault finding and repair capabilities.
Under the changes to BS5839-1, on appointment, the service company now has to carry out an initial inspection of the system to ascertain its condition and report on any major areas of non-compliance with the Code.
Systems Inspection Will Cover The Following Areas:
Number of call points
Provision of fire detection
Sound pressure levels
Standby power supplies
Fire resistance of cabling
Fault monitoring of circuits
Standards of electrical safety
Incidence of false and unwanted alarms
Changes in use, layout or construction of the protected area that may impact on the effectiveness of the system
Acess control is the managment of who goes where and when. it starts with the unique access credentials issued to every person who is allowed to enter. Software defines the entrences, times and rules for entry of each credential holder, or for a group. Ths information is thn distribued to various door, elevatr and control panels for quick dependable decision making each and everytime a person requests to unlock a door
CCTV equipment can provide instant alerts when trouble occurs, ensuring that crime against people, theft, and vandalism are all substantially reduced. And when crime does occur, CCTV system incident recording can provide valuable evidence, improving the likelihood of a conviction.
A variety of cameras, lenses, housings, mounts, and lamps are available to accommodate special needs or general-purpose use.
Generally the accepted standard for most installations where good lighting is available.
These cameras have all the benefits of colour, combined with the superior night time performance of monochrome cameras and Infra-red lighting.
Lens selection is especially critical since the choice directly affects the size and quality of the image. Various options are available to meet the most demanding requirements.
PTZ & Dome Cameras
Allow an operator to direct the camera to the area of interest. Powerful zoom capabilities and fast movement allow targets & patterns of operation to be programmed. Various mounting options are available for internal or external use.
The analog VCR has been the standard method of recording for many years and is now joined by Digital recorders
These utilize PC technology and record the footage to a Hard Disk or DVD. Some systems also use CD/RW and /or Digital Audio Tape (DAT) for archive purposes. Digital recorders are available as a single channel or multi-channel products, thus eliminating the need for a separate multiplexer.
Systems employing many cameras require a means of selecting and displaying the footage from the required camera on a particular display monitor.
These generally used in small, low-cost applications. A manual switcher allows users to select the required camera by pressing an appropriate button. These devices can also switch from one camera to another automatically, or on receipt of an alarm.
Large CCTV systems, employing many cameras and monitors, will require a means of distributing the footage to the selected monitors and recording devices. This can be achieved with a Matrix Switcher. With multiple keyboards, several operators are able to control the system at the same time.
