CHALLENGES IN THE FIRE PROTECTION AND SMOKE SAFETY INDUSTRY
One of the highest risks for building managers and owners is fire. Arguably one of the most underestimated risks for occupants - commercial or domestic - are the dangers of smoke. A fire can break out anywhere - the decisive outcomes are prevention, quick detection, and the tools and systems to extinguish. State-of-the art stationary and mobile fire extinguishing systems provide targeted, efficient, and reliable protection for humans, assets, and the environment. Providers in the field of fire protection are companies with a high technological know-how about fire extinguishing devices, sprinkler systems, dry powder units, dry riser layouts etc. Usually, comprehensive fire protection solutions are offered that protect humans and assets in businesses and residential buildings efficiently against fires, with levels of failsafes.
To maintain these systems on time and to permanently observe the legal regulations (for the UK, these have increased with the recent Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (Amendment) Regulations) is a daily challenge in the field service sector. The sequenced work steps involved in installing larger systems frequently call on the skills of a wide range of engineers and this must be considered for scheduling. Moreover, it is necessary to schedule multi-day calls for installing and servicing larger systems. Our software solutions FLS VISITOUR and FLS MOBILE guarantee the scheduling of service engineers is effective and efficient in spite of the relevant restrictions in the field of fire protection.
