Fire remains one of the greatest danger on construction sites, even though the safety records of the construction sector has improved over the years, there is still a huge amount of deaths and serious injuries that occur. Our job is to reduce the number of deaths and injuries and provide a safe environment for work.
Our wireless fire alarm and first aid call points are designed specifically for the construction industry. Wireless fire alarm provides automatic cover 24/7 – 365 days a year, ensuring that the site is fully monitored and protected against any risk of fire. In addition to protecting construction sites, our wireless fire alarm is ideal for pop up event, vacant properties, festivals and other events.
Our wireless evacuation alarm system uses mesh network technology to link all alarms, ensuring that they never fail. This give you the peace of mind that your workforce is fully protected.
Heat and smoke detectors are an integral part of our wireless evacuation alarm system. They provide important fire detection capabilities, particularly essential outside of working hours on construction sites and in empty properties. Our heat and smoke detectors use radio mesh technology to transmit alert signals which activate the fire alarms.
With the help of an auto speed dialer, our monitoring centre ensures that your site is protected against fire 24/7. Both our heat and smoke detectors have built-in sirens with an output of 85db, ensuring building sites are evacuated as quickly as possible.
Reports of all tests and events can be viewed in real-time through our online portal. Fire roll call reports can be printed for each worker and contractor confirming their safety.
Our wireless fire alarm can be integrated with access control systems which aid quick evacuation in case of fire on-site.
Design of detection and alarm systems
The design phase is one of the critical parts of a fire alarm system. If this phase is not developed properly, false alarms can occur and in the worst case, a system with the potential to threaten the safety of life, which does not detect correctly or does not detect at all.
The installation of the fire alarm system must comply with the standard
It is the responsibility of the person responsible to ensure that the contracting company or those who install this system have the necessary competence to install by authorizing the company. The engineer must ensure that the alarm system is in accordance with the specifications of the design plan.
Commissioning / Testing
The final and perhaps the most important stage in the installation of the detection and alarm system is the commissioning, where the authorized person verifies the entire functionality of the system, and validates it as safe and adequate to achieve the purpose.
In the first phase it is checked if the system corresponds to the design specifications and sketches, and the wiring corresponds to the regulations and is safe.
Any fire detection and alarm system must be maintained by an authorized person or company. According to the regulations, the system should be checked once every 6 months or more frequently if the risk class is very high or if there is a danger of vandalism on the system.
A wireless monitored fire alarm system is a cost-effective method of significantly reducing the risk of fire on your premises.
