Researchers at RMIT are studying the fire safety risks associated with the installation of solar…
Replacing fire detection systems is not always a priority, but ageing systems can have reduced effectiveness – with potentially dire consequences. Rod Rolfe on fire systems and what to do as they reach the end of their cycles.
The two associations have joined up to issue a reminder for building owners and managers: don’t delay those fire protection safety and maintenance checks.
In certain industries, such as petrochemicals, the need for immediate fire suppression has long ignored environmental concerns. Until now.
Since the Grenfell Tower fire claimed 72 lives in 2017, Australia has identified flammable cladding on more than 3400 buildings. Few have been fixed. By RMIT University’s Trivess Moore, David Oswald and Simon Lockrey.
Aged care facilities remain some of the most at-risk environments for COVID-19 outbreaks. Here’s John Lynch on the new ins and outs for technicians managing fire safety systems.
Honeywell has launched the first tools from its new Connected Life Safety Services suite, an all-in-one cloud platform for fire safety systems.
Facility owners and managers have become increasingly aware of the dangers and ramifications associated with using the wrong fluorochemicals, which can have a significant impact on the environment and possibly human health. Robert Westerhout sheds some light on the subject.
Facility management technology is evolving swiftly – and so are risk profiles. One of the best ways to ensure we’re harnessing technology’s benefits while mitigating new risks is, whenever possible, to ground protection schemes in evidence. But as technology and distribution models continue to transform, this can be easier said than done.
