Fire fighting systems is a necessity for tall buildings, commercial establishment, factories etc. There are various fires fighting system such as Water Hydrants, Foam Systems, Dry powder system and Gaseous based and are installed depending on the risk of fire. Also there are various other systems such as Fire Alarm, Smoke detection, Gas Detection, etc. which signals regards the hazard and alert the concerned department and actuates the Fire fighting system. All the Fire fighting and detection systems require regular maintenance to keep it operational and work effectively in times of fire emergencies.
We in KV fire design, supply, construct and maintain above fire protection systems by experienced engineer and technicians to operate them efficiently trouble free to protect property and life.
Fire Hydrant system is that system which ensures adequate supply of fire water in systematic manner in the event of breakout of fire in an establishment.
A well designed and well laid hydrant system is the backbone of entire firefighting equipment. A hydrant system not only fights fire with supply of water jet but also supply Water to foam & sprinkler system to cover risk. Hydrant system can be divided into following steps:
- Water reservoir or source of water
- Fire pumps
- Water mains or distribution network
- Valves including those required for pump house
- Accessories, branches, Hoses etc.
- Trained manpower
It is a combination network of Spray nozzles delivers water at desire velocity to extinguish fire automatically.
The system provides facility to fight fire or cool down heat automatically at the initial stage particularly in silent hours in absence of any person. It is very useful firefighting system to mitigate a major risk. Sprinkler also function for confinement of combustible and or toxic vapours, gas, smoke – LPG, Chlorine, etc. Dispersion of vapour cloud. Depending on nature of hazard sprinklers or spray systems are required of different velocity and types like high, medium, upright, sidewall and of different temperature activation.
The external surface of the tankages shall be sprayed with water through the spray nozzles.
Fire Alarm System
A fire alarm system warns people when smoke, fire, carbon monoxide or other fire-related or general emergency is detected.
These alarms may be activated automatically from smoke detectors and heat detectors or may also be activated via manual fire alarm activation devices such as manual call points or pull stations. Alarms can be either motorized bells or wall mountable sounders or horns. They can also be speaker strobes which sound an alarm, followed by a voice evacuation message which warns people inside the building not to use the elevators. Fire alarm sounders can be set to certain frequencies and different tones including low, medium, and high, depending on the condition of the premises
The notification of alarm via control panel is simple to advance nature digitally controlled. They may be analogue addressable or simple audio-visual type. Advanced software is used to give immediate pinpointing locations in an integrated high-rise building or commercial buildings. Alarm system is mandatory requirement of part of fire protection systems of high-rise commercial or institutional buildings,
