EIGSC’s Monthly Message – April 2013

Just when you thought technology would not surprise you, it does.  Simplex Grinnell’s great presentation was on fire life safety technology.April Simplex

Simplex Grinnell came out in force to show support of our group.The presenting team consisted of:

Donald Yax, Special Hazard Systems Sales and Application Specialist

Robert Humphreys, Fire Alarm Sales Representative

Ron Mayle, Design Manager

Miro Berjan, Operations Manager

SmplexGrinnell was pleased to present how new technologies could be adapted to protect against fires within elevator shafts. New fire protection systems, originally developed to protect large buildings and HVAC systems, can be adapted to provide better protectionand earlier warning than traditional equipment. Intelligent controls, that include internet or mass notification capabilities, can alert more people, using more communication methods (e-mail, phone text, etc.) with information that is uniquely designed for a specific response (fire department call out, engineering assignments, evacuation, etc.). This communication, coupled with the early warning of “aspirating” smoke detectors, will allow less fire damage and a faster recovery time for any elevator shaft fire.
