A building occupant warning system (BOWS) is critical to alert occupants of a fire event so that they can commence evacuation of the building. A BOWS consists of equipment and devices that provide audible and visual alarms to occupants of a building, upon the receipt of a fire alarm signal from a fire detection system or device or manual activation. Emergency warning systems and sound systems for emergency purposes are also BOWS.


With the release of the NCC 2019 referenced 2018 edition of AS 1670.1 (Fire Detection, warning, control and intercom systems - System design, installation and commissioning - Part 1 Fire), the Deemed to Satisfy (DtS) requirements of Building Occupant Warning Systems (Clause 3.22) have changed.


Do you know if the Emergency Warning System or Building Occupant Warning System equipment you are purchasing, installing, approving or certifying is compliant?

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.
