On average, more than one preventable fire related death occurs in a residential context every week in Australia.

This has been described as a diffuse disaster, yet there has been no collaborative national research since 2005 and very limied analysis regarding the demographic features and comorbities of victims.

 

This presentation will focus on the key findings of the research.

The control and management of fire and smoke within a building during a fire is very important for the life safety of occupants, while they are evacuating from a building.  Fire curtains are frequently used to form part of a buildings' smoke hazard management system.  The approval of these systems are typically via the use of Performance Solutions.

 

Fire curtains are often misunderstood and are usually the first to blame when they do not operate or perform as they are required to. When very often the reason is the adverse impact of other building systems, building/architectural features or furnishings on the fire curtains that create the problem.

 

This webinar is aimed at improving your understanding of the key operational and performance requirements/criteria of fire curtains.


If you engineer, design, approve or service fire curtains you will find this webinar very informative.

The prevention, control and/or management of a fire within a building is very important for the life safety of occupants and the protection of property and goods within the building.

 

Oxygen Reduction Fire Prevention Systems are becoming more frequently considered and used as an alternative to traditional fire protection systems. These systems take a very different approach to fire protection and life safety, than do traditional fire protection systems. They are typically approved via the use of Performance Solutions.

 

Where traditional fire protection systems such as sprinklers or gaseous fire suppression systems activate to control or extinguish a fire after it has started, Oxygen Reduction Fire Prevention Systems are designed to create and maintain an oxygen-reduced atmosphere in an enclosure that can prevent the ignition of combustibles within the protected area, while maintaining a safe environment for the occupants.

 

Oxygen Reduction Fire Prevention Systems are not widely known or understood. This webinar is aimed at improving your understanding of these systems, key operational and performance criteria. If part of your work includes aspects of fire protection of life safety, you will find this webinar very informative.
