Checking the fire safety systemМай 2, 2019
Checking the fire safety system is to check the functionality of the fire alarm system, be sure to check during its installation, debugging, acceptance by the customer and scheduled maintenance. It is important to keep the fire safety system in a fully operational condition both from the point of view of its own safety and safety in case of fire and looking back at the fines that can be issued by the Fire Safety Department in case of detection of malfunction or violations of technical requirements.
Checking the fire safety system
Fire safety testing is limited to two options:
1. Assessment of the working condition of the fire safety system as a whole. Simulate the operation of the sensor (or group of sensors) by means of special commands from the control panel, or directly near the device, using mechanical switches and magnetic keys to trigger an alarm. Such a test can be performed quite quickly and results in a fire safety test report in the form of an alarm, but it does not give an indication of the performance of the sensitive elements on which the response to real emergency conditions depends.
2. For randomly selected sensors, external influences simulate a fire. Most often telescopic rods are used with metal glasses attached at their ends. Depending on the type of element (reacts to heat or smoke), they contain a heating device (incandescent lamp with a reflector or electric hair dryer), or preparations simulating smoke (paraffin oil sprayed with an ultrasonic radiator, or other reagents).
