a fire protection system?
In essence, the factory fire protection system is a set of devices that help detect, warn, and prevent in time, helping to minimize the loss of life and property caused by a fire. .
The factory fire protection system usually includes the following items: fire alarm system, smoke extraction system, fire fighting system and emergency light system.
Fire alarm system
The fire alarm system is responsible for detecting and warning of fire to the control center and the people in charge of the location/area of fire in order to promptly control and fight the fire.
The fire alarm system includes smoke and fire detection equipment, sound/light warning such as smoke detectors, heat detectors, fire alarm lights, fire alarm bells, fire alarm control panel…
Fire fighting system
The items of the fire fighting system are quite complicated, there are many different types. Each system consists of the following main components: a pipeline, a tube, a container for the fire extinguishing (powder, gas or water). Fire fighting systems can operate automatically or not automatically depending on design requirements.
Smoke extraction system
The smoke extraction system consists of exhaust fans, large pipes, sensors, control valves and power source.
When there is smoke due to fire, the sensors will recognize and transmit a signal to the control cabinet, then the fan will automatically suck the smoke into the large pipe and bring it to the outside, thereby limiting the spread of fire to other areas, reduce the risk of workers suffocating smoke and toxic gas, reduce human casualties.
Incident lights, exit lights, emergency lights
This is a lighting system manufactured according to the mandatory standards of the fire protection system, including lights using independent batteries. When there is a fire alarm or power failure, the lights will automatically switch to using electricity from the battery instead of the factory’s common power source as usual, promptly instructing the exits for people in the factory.
The system includes: air-termination, down-conductor and ground rod, in addition, it may include additional secondary lightning protection devices (transmission or inductive lightning protection system). When there is heavy rain, the factory is at risk of being struck by lightning, the lightning protection system will limit the transmission and influence of lightning to electrical equipment or flammable objects in the factory.
