Storage facilities are designed with just-in-time requirements in mind. Consequently, warehouses, distribution centres and large retail businesses are among the most prized assets to fire protect from an operational standpoint. Technical faults in electrical equipment, switch cabinets and control cabinets, electric motors and the associated batteries, cooling arrays for frozen storage facilities, defrosters and welding and cutting work during repairs all increase the risk of fire.
According to the NFPA, the leading causes of fire in storage facilities are by far arson followed by electrical equipment (such as wiring, transformers, circuit breakers, control panels), followed by forklifts and finally chemical reactions between incompatible chemicals. Hot-shrink packaging films, pallets and irradiated goods can also cause a fire. These big-box facilities represent a unique fire challenge to both fire suppression engineers and the firefighters that are called upon to deal with a fire.
The most effective method of protecting a warehouse from a rapidly developing fire is with a properly designed fire suppression system. Advanced Automated Systemsengineers can help you accomplish just that with a technology that will not cause collateral damage to goods and/or systems. With our modular technology you do not have to restrict staff movements, use of the building or disrupt the flow of goods or warehouse equipment.
Advanced Automated Systems security solutions can also solve the security threats faced by airports. Fiber optics can offer exact location of perimeter activity and alert response units before a permitter breach occurs, this solution paired with Advanced Automated Systems ocular interruptive and long range acoustic devices will deter any potential perimeter threat.
Advanced Automated Systems has redefined condition monitoring by employing our patented DXS Fiber Optic Sensing approach – monitoring temperature, strain and acoustics – we provide clients with a holistic set of data; actionable insights which save lives, protect assets, and boost performance, while ensuring businesses and industries stay up and running at all times
