FIRE ALARM SYSTEM

Having a reliable fire protection system is a necessity. The fire alarm system is one of the basic security systems in facilities and its aim is to protect the live and health of people and also the assets accumulated in those facilities. The primary task of the fire alarm system is to detect fire quickly and correctly, before it develops and reaches a size which makes it difficult to bring the fire under control. Immediate identification of the source of fire give the occupants much more time to evacuate a building and to protect effectively the assets accumulated in it.

There are numerous causes of fire. The tried and tested method for ensuring protection against such unpleasant incidents is to install a set of devices (fire detectors, central control equipment and alarm sounders) serving as a means to automatically detect fire and to transmit information about the fire which is called the fire alarm system. Such systems are applied to provide protection to facilities which vary with respect to their technical features. Equipping a facility with an efficient fire alarm system, installed in properly selected and marked places, ensures its reliable operation for many years to come.

Buildings Management Systems (BMS)

4The Building Automation and Management Systems feature technologically advanced solutions for the effective control of installations fixed in a given building. BMS is an integrated system which allows for monitoring and management of all devices and systems which are in a given building and its environment. BMS is an important element of intelligent building. BMS gathers data across the whole building into a central resource and allows for real time reaction to changes of external and internal environment conditions, so as to achieve optimal energy and media consumption and to improve functionality, safety and comfort. Building management systems are designed to do the following: integrate, monitor, control and optimise the functioning of installations or technical devices within buildings. BMS systems perform the following functions: indoor and outdoor lighting control, room temperature control, ventilation control, filtration and climate control, alarm and monitoring systems control, UPS control, smoke ventilation system control, fire flaps control and monitoring, other building automation systems integration.

Burglary and intrusion alarm system

5Burglary and Intrusion Alarm System is the basis of the fully integrated solution of security systems. Integration of all security applications ensures quick detection, identification, notification and reaction in the case of a security infringement in a building. When the security zone is breached, motion detectors and window contact sensors will send alarm signals to the management centre, as a result of which the security personnel can react immediately. Alarms reported and sent in real time allow for faster reaction and ensure better protection of persons and property. When selecting devices working as part of the intrusion and burglary alarm system we take into account the type of protected areas, their purpose, the risk factor, required sensitivity and reliability. A wide range of sensors, modern security control distribution panels, optical and acoustic signalling devices and alarm transmission equipment allow for generation of alarm messages addressed to security guards .In the case of burglary, assault, fire, gas leak, flooding or water leaks the alarm system can discreetly inform about the fact or activate alarm sirens located inside and outside a given facility. It can also report the information automatically by phone or radio to security guards, police or other persons indicated by the subscriber or to the agent of the computer security centre in the facility. Burglary and intrusion alarm system will work efficiently provided that it consists of certified devices of suitable quality. These devices work continuously 24/7 and the effective operation of the whole system depends crucially on their reliability.

Access control systems

6Access control systems encompass a number of technical solutions whose aim is to ensure that authorised people can move freely within a facility and that unauthorised persons are prevented from entering it. Depending on the user’s needs such a solution can be either a simple device to monitor the movement of people or a completely specialist system to manage the whole building and its security systems. Regardless of the type of protected facility, one of the basic safety rules is to control the flow of people moving within designated areas.

Fire detection and fire alarm systems

7Pursuant to the binding provisions of law there is a statutory duty for a number of facility types to have fire alarm systems. Fire detection and fire alarm systems help to detect fire at its earliest possible stage. Once the information has been recorded the fire alarm system notifies the National Fire Service or a monitoring station and, by doing that, the system increases safety in the facility. All the steps which need to be taken in order to achieve the best level of security can be unified in a homogenous system by connecting fire control dedicated distribution panels with well-matched sensors and actuators. It is possible to integrate fire detection and fire alarm systems with other systems incorporated in the building management system.

Time and attendance systems

8Time and attendance systems (TAS) support the management of a company of any business profile. Such systems can cooperate with payroll and personnel systems, helping to calculate working hours, to track when employees enter and leave the building, or come late, to record their overtime hours and breaks. They allow for constant monitoring of attendance figures, compiling many types of reports and planning work schedules (breaks, overtime hours, days-off). Connecting the TAS to access control systems or other security systems raises security of the company and improves organization of work. A well-thought out and precisely configured time and attendance system limits time and financial outlays spent on the monthly calculation of the working time of employees.

Closed-circuit Television (CCTV) Surveillance System

9A CCTV system is a valuable supplement to other security systems. It is used to keep the building or area under surveillance allowing for visual verification of events taking place within specified area, which is vitally important to provide the appropriate level of security. Additionally, CCTV operates effectively with other security systems, such as: burglary alarm systems, fire detection and fire alarm systems, access control systems and allows for immediate reaction of security company. A well-designed and installed closed circuit television surveillance system increases safety in a given facility. The intelligent video system which we offer does not cause too much load: surveillance data is automatically analysed and marked and alarms are sent to the operators only in the case of detecting any irregularities. Real time information displays allow for immediate identification of safety zones violations, thus enabling a rapid reaction aimed to provide a safe environment.

Guard control systems

11Guard control systems have been designed to monitor the work of companies hired to protect property. Guard control system provides an organisation with the ability to locate the guard, which is possible thanks to close co-operation with GSM network operators. Although it was originally designed to supervise guards, it allows for a much wider range of applications in warehouse systems, logistics, work time control, control of the tasks involved in the periodic inspections of equipment. It is a notification system in the event of situations requiring immediate reaction and assistance, it is used instead of burglary notification devices.

Public address systems

22Public address system is used to broadcast voice alerts or to deliver messages within various types of facilities ranging from office buildings, stadiums, shop floors, airports, railway stations, bus stations to retail structures. Depending on the purpose, they allow for automatic transmission of warning notices ascribed to certain events, live announcements or music. Such systems are adapted to be interoperable with fire alarm systems; they ensure efficient evacuation of a building and effective transmission of warning notices. By installing such a system one can minimize the effects of panic response to an emergency and increase security of people in many situations. The system is an important complement to the other security systems in a given facility.

Server rooms

77A server room is a dedicated room housing computer servers, as well as active and passive components of computer networks. Such devices are usually stored in rack cabinets located in server rooms. Server rooms are equipped with sensors for measuring environmental variables in order to automatically monitor and adjust the indoor microclimate. To keep equipment in continuous operation server rooms use dual (or multiple) power supplies and the systems of uninterruptible power supply (UPS). In the case of Internet servers several connections to different Internet Service Providers are applied to ensure accessibility even in the event that one of the connections breaks down. Server rooms are equipped with special technological floors (raised and modular) facilitating cable routing to rack cabinets.
