An addressable fire alarm system is made up of a series of fire detectors and devices that are connected back to a central control panel. With addressable systems, each device has an address or location, enabling the exact detector that was triggered to be quickly identified. This makes addressable alarm systems ideal for large buildings, particularly commercial premises spread over a wide area.
Quickly Determine the location of a fire
Specific actions can be programmed by the user
Reduced likelihood and better handling of false alarms
More reliability, less likely to lose connection
Lower overall cost of wiring
Ability to monitor integrity of the system, with detector health checks
Fire Hydrant and Sprinkler System
In a building, a fire hydrant system is a safety measure or emergency equipment required in some buildings that comprises a series of components that when assembled together provide a source of water to assist fire authorities in a fire. Putting it another way, a fire hydrant system is a water supply with a sufficient pressure and flow delivered through pipes throughout a building to strategically located network of valves for fire-fighting purposes.
In some circumstances, water from a reticulated fire hydrant system can also be shared with other safety measures such as automatic fire sprinkler systems or fire hose reels.
In Bangladesh, the Bangladesh National Building Code (BNBC) sets out the Deemed-to-Satisfy (DtS) provisions for a fire hydrant system required in buildings to the degree necessary to facilitate the needs of the fire brigade for.
Fire hydrant systems are designed and installed in accordance with Australian Standard AS2419 and comprise the following primary components:
Water Supply & Storage
Pipework & Valves
Fire Brigade Booster
Hydrant, Hydrant Valve or Landing Valve & Coupling
Layflat Fire Hose
Fire Door Guards & Accessories
In many commercial environments fire doors are propped open to allow for air circulation or ease of access – but not only does this contravene the Fire Safety Regulations, it is also highly dangerous as your fire doors will not be able to stop the spread of fire in an emergency.
