Any kind of commercial office area or an Industrial environment, an effective fire detection and alarm system is vital for the ongoing safety and assets – not to mention a legal requirement. BRISMEK provide a comprehensive range of fire detection and alarm systems including addressable and conventional systems. Each system can incorporate, heat detectors, smoke detectors, aspirating detectors, manual call points, control panels and sounders, designed specifically to suit each environment in which they operate, and are fully compliant with Indian standard IS2189.

Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems are designed to protect valuable assets in your workplace that would be destroyed by conventional sprinkler systems. Our customers utilize clean agent suppression systems in their telecommunications facilities, clean rooms, data processing centers and to protect priceless artefacts. No costly cleanup is required and some of our systems can be used as a drop-in replacement for Halon systems, which means there is no need to change your current piping structure.Basic fire protection systems, such as fire sprinklers , provide personal and structural protection. But when it comes to high-value assets and equipment or irreplaceable items, water can be just as damaging as fire! Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems are superior to basic water-based fire protection systems in many ways:
Honeywell Fire Suppression System - HFC227ea , FK-1230 (Novec 1230)
Cryptzo Fire Suppression System- HFC 227 EA (FM 200) , CRYPTZO 1230 FK-5-1-12
VESDA aspirating smoke detection solutions with continuous air sampling provide the earliest possible warning of an impending fire hazard. VESDA aspirating smoke detectors buy the critical time needed to investigate an alarm and initiate an appropriate response to prevent injury, property damage or business disruption. VESDA detectors have multi-level warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that does not degrade or change over time, so even minute levels of smoke can be detected before a fire has time to escalate. In addition, VESDA systems are manufactured using targeted Six Sigma techniques and ISO 9000 standards and have been certified by regulatory bodies worldwide.
Access control systems are the electronic systems that are designed to control through a network and they should have an access to a network. Access Control System recognizes authenticates and authorizes entry of a person to enter into the premise thereby giving complete protection ensuring security with the system. Many access control systems use network for communication purpose and information is communicated through these networks. Example of an access control system : A door may be unlocked with a swipe card, an RFID system or by the technology of bio metric system.
Fire fighting systems and equipment vary depending on the age, size, use and type of building construction. A building may contain some or all of the following features:
Fire extinguishers are provided for a 'first attack' fire fighting measure, generally undertaken by the occupants of the building before the fire service arrives. It is important that occupants are familiar with which extinguisher type to use on which fire. Most fires start as a small fire and may be extinguished if the correct type and amount of extinguishing agent is applied whilst the fire is small and controllable. The principle fire extinguisher types currently available include:
|Extinguishing Agent||Principle Use|
|Water||wood and paper fires - not electrical|
|Foam||flammable liquid fires - not electrical|
|Carbon dioxide||electrical fires|
|Dry Chemical||flammable liquids and electrical fires|
|Wet chemical||fat fires - not electrical|
|Special Purpose||various (eg metal fires)|
Fire extinguisher locations must be clearly identified. Extinguishers are colour coded according to the extinguishing agent. It is the policy of the Community Safety and Resilience Department that fire extinguishers be logically grouped at exits from the building, so that occupants first go to the exit and then return to fight the fire, knowing that a safe exit lies behind them, away from the fire. In some instances this will be at odds with the prescriptive requirements of Australian Standard AS2444 Portable fire extinguishers and fire blankets - Selection and location, which simply specifies a distance of travel to a fire extinguisher rather than their location in relation to escape paths. Blind compliance with the standard has the potential to place the fire between the occupant and the safe escape path.
Fire hose reels are provided for use by occupants as a 'first attack' fire fighting measure but may, in some instances, also be used by firefighters. When stowing a fire hose reel, it is important to first attach the nozzle end to the hose reel valve, then close the hose reel valve, then open the nozzle to relieve any pressure in the wound hose, then close the nozzle. This achieves two principle objectives:
Because hose reels are generally located next to an exit, in an emergency it is possible to reach a safe place simply by following the hose. In South Australia, a unique floor mounted swivel hose guide is often employed which lays the hose at floor level, prior to being dragged by the operator. In practice for a single person, this makes withdrawal of the hose much easier than does the traditional high level swinging arm hose guide.
Time is essential in the control of fire. Automatic sprinkler systems are one of the most reliable methods available for controlling fires. Today's automatic fire sprinkler systems offer state of the art protection of life and property from the effects of fire. Sprinkler heads are now available which are twenty times more sensitive to fire than they were ten years ago. A sprinkler head is really an automatic (open once only) tap. The sprinkler head is connected to a pressurised water system. When the fire heats up the sprinkler head, it opens at a pre-set temperature, thus allowing pressurised water to be sprayed both down onto the fire and also up to cool the hot smoky layer and the building structure above the fire. This spray also wets combustible material in the
Fire hydrant systems are installed in buildings to help firefighters quickly attack the fire. Essentially, a hydrant system is a water reticulation system used to transport water in order to limit the amount of hose that firefighters have to lay, thus speeding up the fire fighting process. Fire hydrants are for the sole use of trained firefighters (which includes factory fire fighting teams). Because of the high pressures available serious injury can occur if untrained persons attempt to operate the equipment connected to such installations. Fire hydrant systems sometimes include ancillary parts essential to their effective operation such as pumps, tanks and fire service booster connections. These systems must be maintained and regularly tested if they are to be effective when needed. The placement of such equipment needs to closely interface with fire service operational procedure; simply complying with deemed to satisfy code provisions is a potential recipe for disaster.
