Clearly, the immediate reaction of effective fire alarm systems saves you valuable time, which can save lives and prevent the destruction of your infrastructure. The immediate reaction of effective fire alarm systems saves you valuable time, which can save lives and prevent the destruction of your infrastructure.
The only problem is: Do the control systems also work when there is (not only digital) chaos in a burning networked building?
As every technician knows: increasing networking = increasing complexity and thus = multiple disruptive factors.
Not with you.
You can easily ensure optimal and smart fire protection: With the testing services of VdS. Take advantage of well over 100 years of accumulated experience for your safety.
The state building regulations also require a working principle test by approved experts when commissioning special buildings. (Repeat tests then every 3 years. This is often also part of the official fire protection certificate).
That means concretely:
- Together we develop the time optimised test plan. Basis: Your fire protection concept + the control matrix.
- Our experts work out the necessary scenarios and provide all other experts (e.g. for extinguishing systems, air conditioning, lifts, emergency power) with precise checklists. In order not to disrupt your operations, we can also carry out the practical tests at night or on weekends if you wish.
- Compact summary of all individual results: You see all possible dependencies and interactions at a glance.
- Very important: VdS always includes concrete practical tips for quickly minimising any risks discovered.
- If required: Extended test scenarios (black circuit / black building test, full test, smoke tests for realistic releases).
By the way:
Critical are always the cross-functional connections. VdS has been testing fire alarm systems since they were first used in Europe. We know the typical risks of cross-connections - and above all, we know how you can quickly and easily eliminate these sources of danger.
Directly dealt with:
- They ensure that all specified process requirements and safety procedures are fulfilled for your entire building.
- You receive a compactly documented test of the complete chain of active principles with all the trades involved, from sensors to actuators, under the decisive aspect of simultaneity.
- The most important thing: You know and can also prove exactly that your entire system functions safely even in the chaos of a fire. Proven by Europe's No. 1 for fire protection. So that you, your colleagues and valuable goods are optimally protected.
With VdS, you will find risks immediately - and not only when there is a fire.
