Financial institutions have their own requirements regarding fire safety systems and also distinct fire safety hazards specific to banks. The contents within the structure maybe damaged or ruined. JNS wanted to facilitate the building according to the international standards. Safety was one of the majorly focused aspects in design considerations. It was analyzed that there were several causes that could raise ignition in the bank further leading to disastrous fire.
In addition to be compliant, JNS strongly emphasizes on safety and security issues. The Bank aimed to ensure that everyone concerned with the staff to the visitors understand the requirements of fire safety in order to ensure optimum safety for all who are present in the building. They aimed to focus on life and property safety. JNS wanted a solution that could match its required standards. They wanted to opt for a future ready addressable system that could pin point the exact location of fire. The installation must not involve any changes to the constructed building’s architecture.
JNS is old constructed multi-storey building, so lengthy wiring would lead to civil work. The bank consists of many rooms, precious assets and most importantly, visitors and staff. It was clear that JNS needed completely wireless devices. The building layout, the vaults, the electrical faults, unfamiliarity or negligence can raise fire. Also, some areas of the bank are locked for safety purpose, the fire could be trapped inside creating it difficult to vacate the place. Even in case of power cuts, terror attacks or any other emergencies, quick and planned evacuation is extremely important. One of the key requirements of JNS was to have early detection so the key stakeholders can contribute to life and property safety. Major design considerations for JNS were safety, technical leverage, highly reliable system that could last longer with low maintenance and installation cost.
The consultant was given this task to find a solution that satisfied JNS’s requirements completely. After analyzing the necessities, he recommended NFire Solution to JNS as the perfect fit. NFire Solution is an ideal solution as it is highly scalable, cost effective and highly reliable. A site survey was conducted for JNS by NFire Team.
NFire Solution is a smart integrated incidence management system. It minimizes complexities to increase the speed of communication. NFire Solution was implemented at JNS. NFire provides the institution with localized alert within the premises along with centralized monitoring by NFire Emergency Monitoring Service Centre as per their requirements.
The site survey was conducted by NFire Team. JNS believes that the site survey was the most valuable part of this project as it gave them confidence on the recommendation of NFire by the consultant. Working with NFire Team on the site survey put into perspective that this process should be every institution’s standard. They believe that NFire Team highlighted the risks/threats and assured NFire’s seamless functioning. A total of 40 smoke sensors, 26 shutter sensors and 30 panic buttons were added that pinpoints the exact location of fire. NFire is a customizable solution with easy installation and minimal downtime. It causes no damage to the existing structure and saves a major cost compared to any conventional or wired addressable systems. NFire solution also brings other unique features like 24×7 monitoring, advance integration with IoT, Cloud computing, Mobile technology and communication technology. It is an easily upgradable future proof technology system for next generation smart fire stations. NFire feasibly reduces operational complexity and increases the incident response speed. It is highly stable, robust and built as per UL/BIS/NFPA specifications. Along with the live emergency monitoring service, notifications are sent via live call and SMS by NFire team of highly trained monitoring officers. NFire connect app makes it easy to access NFire alarm system from anywhere.
