AS 1670 Technical Solutions Workshop Announced

Posted on : Tuesday, 18 April 2017

Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) will hold a Technical Solutions Workshop related to the implementation of AS 1670.1-2015 and AS 1670.4-2015 to coincide with Fire Australia Conference and Tradeshow being held at the International Convention Centre Sydney.


The topics to be covered in this workshop, which will be held on 3 May, include:


  • System Interfaces - Documentation, Testing and ongoing Performance Verification
  • Emergency and Occupant Warning Systems; and
  • Transmission Path Protection, Primary and Secondary Power Supplies


The Workshop will provide "How To" advice and practical answers to the many questions that regularly came up during the AS 1670.1 seminars that were rolled out last year.  Questions such as:


  • How are interfaces achieved? Where are the requirements?
  • What Baseline Data needs to be collected?
  • What is the impact of 'Performance solutions' on 'expected' practice methods?
  • Original installation and ongoing conformance and compliance verification.
  • How do I comply with the loudspeaker specifications including layout, power tapping and cable selection
  • How have the Speech Intelligibility Requirements changed with the introduction of AS 1670.1 - 2015


Facilitated by David Isaac of Fire and Safety Technologies, this workshop will provide many of the answers to questions raised during last year's AS1670.1 seminar series.


David is the business Principal and Director of Fire and Safety Technologies with more than 46 years' experience in electrical systems design installation and commissioning. David's experience spans building services, heavy industrial installations and essential services systems including fire detection, smoke hazard management systems and warning systems.


The Workshop is being held at the same venue as the Fire Australia Tradeshow allowing participants to check out the free Tradeshow at the conclusion of the Workshop with over 65 exhibitors displaying the latest technology, products and services in the fire protection industry.
