Fire sprinkler systems are used to extinguish accidental fires quickly, so that they do not spread and become big and out of control. Thus fire sprinkler systems are like a prevention system that can be very effective in bringing smaller fires under control immediately. There are a variety of fire sprinkler systems depending on the place of installation, area of protection, type of fires possible, cost, efficiency, etc. All these factors need to be considered while choosing the right fire sprinkler for your needs
Some of the common fire sprinkler systems used are:
Fire alarm systems detect the presence of fire and raise an alarm to alert you of the same. It works via many ways, mainly tracking head and smoke that is typically associated with any fire. Heat sensors and smoke detectors are thus central to most fire alarm systems. There are always risks involved at home and a fire can start though seemingly innocuous actions or through a short circuit or faulty wiring, with so many electrical items in today’s homes. Therefore it is always a good idea to have a fire alarm system installed at your home.
There are many fire alarm systems that are available in the market today, and you should select the one that is most suitable for your needs. Smoke alarms come in two main categories :
Ionisation alarms are the most commonly found fire alarm systems which are also inexpensive, and detect the presence of different fires. Optical alarms on the other hand are more expensive, but they are able to detect slow burning fires that are typical of fires coming from electrical wiring.
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.
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.
Fire hydrant systems are designed and installed comprise the following primary components;
Integration to ensure fast reaction. The proper selection and integration of control panels, detectors, and alarms is crucial in making sure your fire protection system reacts quickly. Minimax has the products and application expertise you need to optimize your system for fast detection and response.
The panel receives information from environmental sensors designed to detect changes associated with fire, monitors their operational integrity and provides for automatic control of equipment, and transmission of information necessary to prepare the facility for fire based on a predetermined sequence. The panel may also supply electrical energy to operate any associated sensor, control, transmitter, or relay. There are four basic types of panels: coded panels, conventional panels, addressable panels, and multiplex
