Supply chain scrutiny key to minimising fire door risks

Supply chain scrutiny key to minimising fire door risks

Promat UK

The Hackitt Review has brought to the broader public attention the myriad of standards and testing or assessment methods that specifiers and the fire protection sector has had to carefully navigate for many years. And whilst the debate continues about the best way forward in respect of specific applications, one positive step that fire door manufacturers can take right now is to go back to basics and check whether their supply chain for fire resisting components is opening the door to risk.Fire resistant products like fire rated glass, intumescents and core materials are composed to precise specifications.

PROTECTING SITES FROM PROTESTORS

PROTECTING SITES FROM PROTESTORS

Zaun Limited

Zaun was contracted to supply high security and anti-protestor fencing for leading fracking companies to protect their sites from trespass or intrusion by protesters.

This case study investigates the fundamental role of temporary high-security fencing in protecting sites from protesters.


Why was it important to protect the site?


Fracking is a subject that often dominates the news and can generate heightened emotions. In addition, fracking regularly attracts protesters, resulting in the crucial necessity for site protection, such as high-security fencing.

Protesters could pose a significant danger to the site's running and risk their own health if they could get onto the site.


What Fencing Was Selected?


Zaun installed two types of high-security temporary fencing systems to protect the site. One of these fencing systems was MultiFence temporary security fencingMultifence is durable and mobile. In addition, concrete blocks are utilised for mounting the fencing, which can be a viable space-saving option and extremely secure and robust.


The second temporary security fencing used at the fracking site was RDS Original, Zaun’s Rapid Deploy Fencing system.


Why Were They Selected?


Zaun’s Multifence system and RDS system are high-security solutions to temporary fencing needs. Both robust, strong and durable, they have extensive intrinsic security features that deliver the highest level of protection.

Both systems have been mob tested, which means they can withstand considerable force from crowds. Thus, they are ideally suited for this purpose. Due to a lack of footholds, protesters cannot climb or scale the fence. This offers dual protection because not only does it prevent protesters from intruding onto the site, but it also significantly reduces the risk of injury to the protesters too.

The Multifence and RDS systems have the potential for hostile vehicle mitigation security upgrades to the fencing if necessary. This can be crucial if there is the possibility of hostile vehicles attacking the site.

As no ground penetration is necessary for installing either the Multifence or RDS, this protects the environment around the site’s perimeter. It also maintains the integrity of the site ground. They are also easily movable and redeployed over multiple sites.

3M DBI-SALA Fall Protection

When renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed the Palau De Les Arts Reina Sofia, the practicalities of cleaning the 6,000 square metres of glass and changing the light bulbs in the uppermost part of the building (75 metres) posed a challenge. Problem: Fall protection system was not specified at the design stage. Irregular shaped construction with high ceilings and curved walls made maintenance with scaffolding virtually impossible. Solution: Rail system installed inside the building, which has minimal visual impact. Provides suspended rope access, positive restraint and fall arrest for multiple users.

Protection Board - London Aquarium

Protection Board - London Aquarium

Wallbarn Ltd

The contractor was relaying a waterproof membrane immediately above the London Aquarium and naturally the client was concerned about leaks with such precious livestock beneath. The waterproofing was torch-on bituminous felt membrane, due to be covered with road grade asphalt. Protecto-board was laid onto the waterproofing and secured with tape. It was cut to shape around the curbs cleanly and effectively without leaving vulnerable areas and without delaminating or crumbling, or leaching bitumen. It protected the waterproofing from temporary construction process damage and permanently protected it when covered with hot road grade asphalt afterwards

Spectus Window Systems

Jade Windows has completed a large project at Castleford Academy which saw the establishment self-fund a two phase refurbishment of windows, doors and a fully glazed corridor. With over 1200 students attending Castleford Academy the need for refurbishment was apparent as Ryan Fozzard, estimating manager at Jade Windows explained: “For students to perform well academically their environment needs to be comfortable and inspiring.
