Case Study On Fire Detection In Hotels
A total surveillance concept is most applicable for hotel fire detection systems, ensuring that the entire building is monitored. This includes not only all rooms, corridors, staircases, and anterooms, but also all air conditioning and cable ducts, supply shafts, false ceilings, raised floors, and similar structures that permit smoke and fire to spread.
Most hotel fires are started by heat generated by overheating, malfunctions in electrical equipment, or electrical arcing. Another important category of an ignition source is heat or open flames from candles, cigarettes, lighters, and matches. Hot embers or ashes, molten, hot material, and friction-generated heat are different fire sources.
Particular attention should be given to critical areas where many people may be present, areas with numerous heat sources, large fire loads, or significant deception phenomena.
Critical areas include the following: guest rooms, kitchens, laundries, restaurants, stairways, parking garages, and plant rooms.
Question: There are many fire control methods, but the emphasis on fire safety is more for buildings. Explain two forms of fire protection systems suitable for each hotel's swimming pool, guest room, laundry room, kitchen, and car park.
