Fire, smoke and air dampers form part of a buildings' smoke hazard management system. This system is a required life safety measure that utilises the buildings' mechanical services to control the effects of fire and smoke within a building. It is essential that these dampers operate and perform correctly, when required, to minimise the impact of fire and smoke to occupants while evacuating the building.

 

This pre-recorded webinar is aimed at improving understanding regarding the key operational performance criteria of fire dampers, smoke dampers and air dampers that should be identified and considered, to determine if the expected system operation and performance is being achieved.

 

If you design, install, certify, routinely service or assess the operation and performance of these dampers, you will find this webinar very informative.

 

This pre-recorded webinar covers and explains:

 

  • Why do we need dampers and where are they included?
  • What are the 'rules' for using dampers?
  • The three main damper types (Fire, Smoke & Air) and when is each necessary?
  • Provide examples of each type
  • Explain subducts (as an alternative to some fire damper applications)
  • Explain what an "FRL" is
  • Ordering and installing dampers correctly
  • Labelling, Baseline Data and Commissioning records

Pre-recorded webinar: Fire Detection and Alarm Systems - Smoke Detection for Smoke Control Systems

 

A 90 minute webinar presented by David Isaac, Director of Fire and Safety Technologies Pty Ltd (recorded 11 June 2020)

 

*FPA Australia Member: $95 + GST per person

Non-member: $140 + GST per person

 

1.5 CPD Points

 

*Members include individuals and companies that hold Corporate, Franchise, Professional, Organisation or Individual FPA Australia membership.

 

Please note, FPA Australia membership is different to FPA Australia's FPAS accreditation, such as FPAS Fire Safety Assessor or Fire Systems Design accreditations. See here for more information on FPA Australia membership.

 

 

There are many requirements within the National Construction Code that mandate the installation of smoke control systems within buildings for occupant life safety. However, the activation of these smoke control systems relies on the detection of a fire by - and subsequent signal from - a Fire Detection and Alarm System (FDAS).

 

For some buildings, the activation of the smoke control systems can be achieved by a required AS 1670.1 FDAS and detection layout, which has smoke detectors installed within almost every room in the building.

 

However, in many buildings the activation of the smoke control systems is by a smoke detection layout that requires detectors to be installed at specific locations near lifts, exit doors, etc and within the circulation space of the building.

 

To ensure that the required protection is compliant, you should have a very good understanding of the NCC and Australian Standard design requirements for smoke detectors that initiate smoke control systems.

 

This pre-recorded webinar covers and explains:

 

  • When the NCC requires only smoke detection for activation of smoke control systems in a building;
  • When the NCC requires smoke detection throughout almost every room in a building;
  • What are the requirements for smoke detection in carparks;
  • What are the AS 1670.1 requirements for smoke detection for activation of smoke control systems;
  • What constitutes a circulation space;
  • The required smoke detection locations; and
  • What the control and indicating requirements are where interfaced with fans, dampers, air handling units and the like.

The pressurisation of required fire-isolated stairways, ramps or passageways forms part of a buildings' smoke hazard management system. These systems are, or form part of, a life safety measure that is mandatory for many buildings. They form part of a buldings' mechanical services to control the effects of fire and smoke within a building.

 

These systems assist with minimising an occupant's exposure to the effects of a fire while they are evacuating the building. Therefore, it is essential that these pressurisation systems operate and perform correctly, when required, to minimise the impact of fire and smoke to occupants while evacuating the building.

 

This pre-recorded webinar is aimed at improving your understanding of the key operational and performance requirements/criteria of these pressurisation systems.

 

If you design, install, certify, routinely service or assess the operation and performance of pressurisation of required fire-isolated stairways, ramps or passageways, you will find this webinar very informative.

While not a life safety system that impacts on the effects of a fire, an Occupant Warning System (OWS) is a critical system-and the only system-that alerts occupants of a fire event within a building.

 

The structure and type of OWS typically consists of many different components and can consist of a combination of different OWS systems. Over the last 5 years these requirements in the AS 1670 series have changed.

 

If you approve, design, install, certify, inspect, test or assess Fire Detection and Alarm Systems within buildings and are unsure of key requirements or wish to improve your knowledge, then you should find this webinar to be very informative.

 

This pre-recorded webinar covers and explains:

 

  • When the NCC requires occupant warning systems within a building;
  • What type of occupant warning system is required;
  • What are Grade 1, 2 and 3 amplified sound systems;
  • The transition to AS 4428.16 Grade 2 and 3 amplified sound systems;
  • When is the alert signal required, when is the evacuate signals required;
  • OWS used for staged evacuation;
  • OWS circuit limitations;

Passive fire protection is a required essential life safety measure that provides barriers to restrict and contain a fire to a limited area within a building.

 

However, doorways are usually required in these barriers for the access and egress of occupants within the building. Therefore, it is critical that these required doorways in these barriers have the required protection (fire doors and smoke doors) to avoid the spread of fire and smoke throughout the building.

 

To ensure that the required protection is compliant and the products conform, you should have a very good understanding of the design, testing, installation, servicing and NCC requirements for these fire and smoke doors.

 

If you approve, design, install, certify, inspect or assess fire doors or smoke doors within buildings and are unsure of key requirements or wish to improve your knowledge, then you should find this webinar to be very informative.

 

This two-part pre-recorded webinar covers and explains:

 

  • What is the purpose of fire doors and smoke doors;
  • What is the NCC requirements for fire doors and smoke doors;
  • What are the test requirements for fire doors and smoke doors;
  • What are the key installation requirements for fire doors and smoke doors;
  • What key items to remember when installing fire doors and smoke doors;
  • What key items to check for when certifying the installation of fire doors and smoke doors;
  • The routine service requirements for fire doors and smoke doors; and

The ability of the fire brigade to carry out fire-fighting, search and rescue activities and occupants to fight a fire in its initial growth stage, if they choose to do so, could be critical to the life safety of occupants. To enable fire fighters or occupants to undertake these activities specific & required equipment, operation and system performance needs to be provided.

 

To provide this, the system needs to be correctly designed, installed and commissioned so that it can be verified as 'fit for purpose' and compliant. To do this there are several key aspects throughout the process that need to be carefully considered, implemented and verified.

 

This webinar is also partly aimed at improving your understanding of the key operation and performance requirements/criteria of these systems.

 

If you design, install or commission fire hydrant or fire hose reel systems or simply wish to obtain a better understanding of these systems, you will find this webinar very informative.

A 60 minute webinar presented by Geoff Kaandorp of Fire Rescue Victoria (recorded 5 November 2020)

 

FPA Australia Member: Free

Non-member: Free

 

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 limited analysis regarding the demographic features and comorbidities of victimes.

 

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

 

It will outline how an increased understanding of victim demography can be applied by fire sevices based on a dynamic shift from targeting individuals to advocating for changes to program, policy and practice to address the needs of those most at risk of dying in a residential fire.

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 of 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.

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 use of Performance Solutions.

 

Fire Curtains allow owners and tenants to utilise and develop architectural spaces whilst still complying with BCA requirements. They are similar to a Fire Shutter and protect openings by deploying and creating a full barrier covering an opening and creating a fire compartment. There are however many differences between a Fire Shutter and Fire Curtain and these need to be understood for correct use of a Fire Curtain in buildings.

 

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 pre-recorded webinar very informative.

 

This pre-recorded webinar provides information on:

 

  • The different types of fire curtains and how they operate;
  • How they interface with other building services;
  • Architectural interfacing, design and specification;
  • Fire and Smoke Performance Testing and Certification; and
  • The Impact of building features that adversely affect the performance of fire curtains.
