Importance of Aspirating Smoke Detection

6th July 2022 at 10:30am

Aspirating Smoke Detection has been used extensively in specific environments, where early detection has been vital, but with focus changing on how we protect our properties, is there a now a case for more widespread use of this type of technology.

Early detection can mean the difference between identifying a possible fire incident, at the very earliest opportunity, before it becomes a major issue. This early detection has generally been used in areas such as data centres, IT suites and clean environments, but could it be deployed to enhance protection in many other projects where it’s not been considered or maybe not even thought about?

We will look at the technology in general, examine how it works and how it can identify a fire related issue at such an early stage. How could this be used as part of an overall fire design in applications to add increased protection?

Wireless Fire Technology Enhancements

Wireless fire devices has been around for decades and the concept of installing fire systems linked by radio technology has become mainstream across the fire industry. Wireless solutions all around us in our everyday life, from telephones, to pc, etc and over the past decade, rapid advances in technology and manufacturing have made wireless a viable and cost-effective alternative for most of fire systems, eliminating the need for cabling and all of the problems it can bring.

The capabilities of the modern fire wireless system are far beyond what could be offered 10 years ago and today wireless technology offers efficient and reliable fire protection for almost any type of building. In this webinar Hyfire will present the most relevant and recent wireless technology enhancements. All attendees will receive CPD Points.

Why Fire Asset Management is a Game Changer

Proper fire asset management is highly specialist and as a result until recently has been a significant missing link in UK fire safety management.

New software designed specifically fire, security and safety assets that allows engineers to quickly create asset registers and asset histories and then allows rapid and accurate management of assets and related paperwork is now available. It is changing how fire service and maintenance businesses operate in the field and give reports and confidence to their customers.

Tio has recently launched what it believes is the fastest, easiest, and most focused fire and asset management package to the UK market. This webinar is an opportunity to see how it works, learn from major service and maintenance providers how it is changing their operations and how its result links into the wider compliance jigsaw all fire safety professionals deliver.

Protecting large premises from fire

Fire Safety in large premises

This webinar will explain the key benefits of protecting large premises with optical beam smoke detection. These premises can include warehouses, factories, or buildings with high ceilings.

In this session, you will learn how to use optical beam smoke detection to protect open spaces such as warehouses and factories and we explain how using optical beam smoke detection can save money and reduce false alarms in locations with high ceilings where point detectors would be difficult to install and maintain.

We will cover the pros and cons of other beam smoke detectors, the benefits of installing a low-level controller and when should you use and not use point, aspirating or beam smoke detection equipment.

Optical beam smoke detection is a device that uses a projected beam of light to detect smoke across large areas, typically as an indicator of fire. They are used to detect fires in buildings where standard point smoke detectors would either be uneconomical or restricted for use by the height of the building. The Hub is unique as it gives you complete flexibility to connect 3 different detectors in any configuration so you can now chose the system settings to suit your environment.

Domestic fire detection and fire alarm systems - Doing them right

It is no understatement that having a correctly designed and installed fire detection and alarm system in domestic premises is an invaluable element of life safety provision.

The electrotechnical sector understands that additional standards and best working practice must be followed to ensure these are designed, installed, and maintained competently. This is especially important in buildings with multiple occupants which require quality premises management.

Bridging the Gap between Fire & Emergency Lighting Systems

Most non-domestic buildings must, by law, have both fire and emergency lighting systems. As public buildings and offices become increasingly complex, their life safety systems must keep pace. Whilst both fire systems and emergency lighting systems are essential to life safety, they are currently treated as separate entities with no communication between the two.

This seminar will explain why integrating fire and emergency lighting systems offers greatly improved safety to a building’s occupants in an emergency. We will cover a range of topics including automatic addressable emergency lighting test systems, integration with fire systems, the ability to apply cause and effect to emergency lighting, and Dynamic Safety Sign Systems (DSSS)

Four years on from Grenfell – how will Building Safety Standards drive change and prevent a re-occurrence?

The question of how we prevent another Grenfell Tower disaster has been asked for almost four years. With the enquiry led by Dame Judith Hackitt now concluded and legislation in the form of the Fire Safety Bill and Building Safety Bill currently going through Parliament, there is some understanding of what updated building safety standards may look like for “buildings in scope”; those over 18m high with a residential component/sleeping risk.

The Building Safety Bill is expected to include new Dutyholder roles and requirements especially for building owners/managers, contractors, designers and suppliers. Implementation will impact how buildings are designed, constructed and managed: to put in place the Golden Thread of information, the government is trying to achieve.

The Building Safety Bill suggests that recommendations will be implemented through secondary legislation, including potentially a revision of the CDM Regulations and/or the Town & Country Planning Act. The first requirements are likely to be brought into effect later this year. From those in the real estate sector to everyone involved in the design and delivery of projects of this nature, including Dutyholders within the current CDM Regulations and new Dutyholders – the Accountable Person and Building Manager, the impact of these changes could be significant.

Hazmat Guide - Gases

Compressed gases are being used today in many industrial and research processes that would not be possible without their use. Compressed gases present many different hazards requiring specific safety protocols for both their safe handling and use. Safety is a high priority when storing and providing gases and must be subject to risk assessment.

For many years, the centralised storage of gases was the only available solution. However, as high purity and specialised gases are more commonly used and processes are changing rapidly, the demand for decentralised solutions of storage and delivery has increased; flexibility of storage without compromising safety is the key.

Protecting High-rise residential buildings from fire

For buildings with flammable cladding, the NFCC (National Fire Chiefs Council) recommends a change in evacuation strategy, supported by the introduction of temporary protection measures, such as ‘Waking Watch’ or a fire detection system, until the cladding is removed. If the remedial works are expected to take longer than 12 months, the NFCC strongly recommends the installation of fire alarm system as a more reliable, safe and cost effective solution to a Waking Watch.

In this webinar, we will be exploring the Apollo & Advanced solution which provides superior protection for residents, is fully compliant with NFCC guidance and offers fast installation with minimal disruption for occupants.

Protecting large premises from fire

Optical beam detection is a device that uses a projected beam of light to detect smoke across large areas, typically as an indicator of fire. They are used to detect fires in buildings where standard point smoke detectors would either be uneconomical or restricted for use by the height of the building. Optical beam smoke detectors are often installed in warehouses as a cost-effective means of protecting large open spaces.
