We have a track record of using fire engineering to resolve operational problems with fire ventilation, dry fire services, hydrants and sprinkler systems.
One example is the use of an ‘activated sub-duct’ to improve the extraction rates of existing or new shafts. This concept allows a designer to get more from an existing smoke exhaust riser.
Another example is to restore a passive smoke ventilation system that had OH&S issues with AS1851 maintenance activities. We had to build a rig to test how to restrain windows after fusible bolts had melted.
A final example is to resolve evacuation times in a healthcare facility through superior smoke ventilation using passive extraction.
Our Fire Detection services also involve:
- Site fire inspections,
- Commissioning management to ensure compliance with codes, client requirements, and expectations,
- Functional testing,
- Performance based design,
- Smoke spread computer modelling,
- Full building design,
- Due diligence inspections,
- Master planning, and
- Lodgment and liaison with local authorities.
