Short-Circuit Isolators, or SCIs have been gradually introduced into most loop-powered fire detection products over the years, but what exactly are they, how do they work and why are they so important in regards to fire system integrity?
Join Paul Adams, Content Marketing Manager at Hochiki Europe, as he explains what these devices do in the event of a short-circuit and runs through the extensive range of SCI-enabled Hochiki products, including the latest edition, our first base sounder with SCI.
Although some may see it as just a legal tick box, in an emergency, having adequate emergency lighting can be the difference between life and death. Compliant emergency lighting systems ensure that building occupants can identify first aid points, locate fire safety equipment, avoid hazards and escape through the closest emergency exit.
Join Paul Adams, Hochiki Europe’s Content Marketing Manager, as he explains how Hochiki's newest intelligent emergency lighting system, FIREscape NEPTO can provide a compliant, self-testing, energy efficient solution.
There can be confusion around the definition and use of I.S. systems used to protect hazardous environments and how these highly specialised products actually function in reducing the risk of explosion. There are also a range of applications, not all of them immediately perceived as being hazardous, that will benefit from the level of protection that these products can offer, where standard technology could fail.
Join Robert Head, as he explains in simple terms how these products should be used
As multi-sensors become more and more sophisticated but easier and cheaper to manufacture, they are becoming the number one choice for system designers and installers wishing to reduce false alarms and provide flexible fire detection. But how should a multi-sensor such as Hochiki's ACC or ACD be tested accurately and efficiently whilst fitted in situ?
Paul Adams, Marketing Manager at Hochiki Europe, is joined by guest-presenter Anthony Partou from Detector Testers where they will clarify the exact definition of multi-sensors, spotlight Hochiki's multi-sensor offering and explain the best tool on the market that can test both.
BS 5266 Part 1 is the British Standard for the design, installation and wiring of emergency lighting systems and in this webinar we’ll attempt to condense the standard down to its key elements, focusing on the most important factors when choosing or maintaining a compliant emergency lighting solution.
Join Ian Hill, Hochiki Europe's Emergency Lighting Business Manager, as he explains the main considerations for compliant emergency lighting.
Visual Alarm Devices (VADs) are an essential component to most fire alarm systems, providing a visual indication of an alarm condition to those people who wouldn’t normally be alerted to a fire by standard audible-only devices such as sounders and bells. BS EN 54-23 has been in force since 2014, standardising the requirements, test methods and performance of VADs, and ensuring their light output is measured in a uniform manner.
Whether you are a seasoned fire professional or brand new to the industry, join Richard Wharram, Export Sales Manager at Hochiki Europe, as he explains the key aspects of the standard and how Hochiki's VADs range can make your installation compliant in this CPD accredited webinar.
In this webinar we’ll provide a brief overview of the issues faced by installers of fire systems and their customers when dealing with nuisance or false alarms.
With detector technology improving continuously over the years to better deal with false alarms, we’ll also look into some of the advancements made in detector design.
Join Paul Adams, Hochiki Europe’s Content Marketing Manager, as he highlights the things to consider when specifying or designing a fire system as well as some practical steps for FMs or building owners to minimise the risk of false alarms.
Hybrid Wireless Fire Detection Systems can provide a unique set of features that can overcome many site-specific problems such as building structures, remote sites and architecturally sensitive buildings. They are also ideally placed to provide temporary protection for construction projects and sites that require additional monitoring.
Martin Green, our Regional Sales Manager for the South West and Ireland, explains the standards and technologies employed, as well as some of the best applications for systems mixing wired and wireless products.
This CPD-accredited webinar focuses on the benefits of multi-sensors and the importance of understanding the most appropriate accreditation for this type of technology.
Paul Adams, Marketing Manager at Hochiki Europe provides insights and guidance for specifiers, installers, facilities managers and insurance consultants looking to reduce risk and ensure safety, security and most importantly true multi-sensor compliance.
Having a good understanding of the recommendations within BS 5839 remains one of the most important elements of a fire engineer's expertise and knowledge. This standard affects all aspects of the fire systems industry, affecting system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
So whether you are a seasoned fire professional or brand new to the industry, this CPD-accredited webinar will cover the key sections of the standard that most fire professionals need to know.
Although some may see it as just a legal tick box, in an emergency, having adequate emergency lighting can be the difference between life and death.
Compliant emergency lighting systems ensure that building occupants can identify first aid points, locate fire safety equipment, avoid hazards and escape through the closest emergency exit.
Richard Wharram, Hochiki Europe’s Regional Sales Manager for the North of the UK, explains how Hochiki's FIREscape intelligent emergency lighting system can provide a compliant, self-testing, energy efficient solution.
The options afforded by the ever-evolving technologies in the fire detection world are many and varied and, for the majority of today’s businesses and property owners, it can be confusing.
But regardless of the reasons that any one type of system is chosen over another, there is an absolute necessity that all of its components work seamlessly in providing that rapid and dependable detection of fire.
This webinar is aimed at building owners or facilities managers who are either faced with the prospect of replacing a fire detection system, or those with a brand-new building, looking for advice on these types of systems for the first time and explains the main differences between open and closed fire system protocols
Join Richard Wharram, Hochiki Europe’s Systems Manager, as he explains the pros and cons of each approach.
