Fire Detection and Alarm Systems
The heart of the alarm and detection system is the central control panel (FACP), which is in charge of processing the signals from the detectors and alerting the occupants of the existing danger. Modern hospital complexes include several critical areas, distributed in different buildings, which is why a flexible and modular system is necessary, easy to expand.
The AVENAR 8000 and 2000 panels can be combined to form a flexible panel network, in which all connected panels behave as a single distributed system, ensuring system operation and redundancy to protect occupant life. The AVENAR family of panels is the perfect solution for a hospital building, because its modular scheme can be effectively adapted to the needs of each area, and can be seamlessly integrated with other existing security and automation systems.
Notification and Audio evacuation
In the case of properties and buildings, the mobility of the people who inhabit these places present important challenges when planning and executing an effective evacuation. In many cases, evacuating a person can be life-threatening so it is always recommended to use the “Defend in Place” philosophy which means removing people from imminent risk, and then controlling the fire and stop its spread beyond the room of origin, to avoid massive evacuations.
In waiting, reception and general care areas, including corridors, voice evacuation must be implemented, guaranteeing sound pressure levels and intelligibility that allow occupants to understand the alert and act.
The integration of the detection panel with the voice evacuation system is key to guaranteeing the safe evacuation of occupants at risk, thanks to Smart Safety Link it is possible to seamlessly integrate both systems through a single IP cable.
PRAESENSA IP-based systems can immediately adapt to changes in building use. When new areas of use are added or defined, the system updates the changes seamlessly.
