VESDA works by continuously drawing air into a distributed pipe network via a high-efficiency aspirator. The air sample then passes through a dual-stage filter. The first stage removes dust and dirt from the air sample before it enters the laser detection chamber. The second, ultra-fine stage provides an additional clean-air supply to keep the detector’s optical surfaces free from contamination, ensuring consistent absolute detection and long detector life as well as minimizing nuisance alarms.
From the filter, the air sample goes through the detection chamber where it is exposed to a laser light source. When smoke is present, light is scattered within the detection chamber and is instantly identified by the highly sensitive receiver system. The signal is then processed and presented via a bar-graph display, alarm threshold indicators and/or graphic display. VESDA detectors are able to communicate this information to a fire alarm control panel, a software management system, or a building management system via relays or a High Level Interface (HLI).
Maintenance is required in conjunction with AS1851.2012. Contact Hartec Fire Systems for further information about the correct maintenance and service of this product.
As Hartec Fire Systems employs qualified electricians we are also able to provide you with a complete electrical breakdown and installation service, including:
Fire Doors and Penetrations Sealing
Fire Doors are an integral component of the fire protection in buildings and are known as “passive fire protection systems”. They are installed in walls constructed as fire barriers and each fire door has a fire rating known as a fire resistant level (FRL) as does the wall itself.
Fire doors need to be maintained to Queensland Development Code (QDC) MP 6.1 which requires that prescribed fire safety installations for a building are maintained by an appropriately qualified person at intervals that are adequate to ensure the building’s fire safety installations perform to a standard no less than that which they were originally required to meet. Fire doors must comply with QDC MP 6.1 schedule 1, which refers to specific maintenance schedules.
Fire Hydrants and Booster Assemblies
Fire services use the hydrant for a continuous flow of water which is vital to firefighting operations. A fire truck carries only enough water to make an initial fire attack. In the first minutes of a fire emergency a continuous water supply from the water mains must be accessed through at a hydrant. In every fire emergency, getting a hydrant to work is one of a firefighters’ priorities. Accessing a hydrant without delay ensures that firefighters who are already inside a burning building tasked with search and rescue or attacking the fire can continue for as long as required.
If your building or occupancy has a fire hydrant or booster assembly, you may be responsible for its maintenance which will include six-monthly and annual inspection in addition to regular flow testing and servicing every year and 5-years.
Hose reels are another important component in your fire suppression system, it is required to be inspected every six and 12 months. With a fully extended length of 36 metres, fire hoses are designed to deliver a minimum of 0.33 litres of water per second, various types of fire hose real are available to meet your needs. Hartec Fire Systems can advise you on the correct inspection regime to ensure your hose reel is always in 100% working order.
Fire Pump Sets
Fire hydrant pump systems (also known as fire pumps, hydrant boosters, fire water pumps) are high pressure water pumps designed to increase the fire-fighting capacity of a building by boosting the pressure in the hydrant service when the mains are not enough, or when tank fed. Monthly, annual and 5-yearly maintenance is required as part of AS1851.2012/3.
Hartec Fire Systems specialises in all aspects of emergency and exit lighting, we employ experienced, fully qualified, reliable electricians to provide new installation and all maintenance on your emergency and exit lighting systems that meet all regulatory standards.*
