When it comes to extinguishing a small fire, time is critical. Having a fire extinguisher that will work and is accessible is critical to occupant safety and building protection. Fire extinguisher selection, location, size and quantity are all determined from section E1.6 of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards AS 2444 and is based on the level of risk and type of fire expected in any given building.SHOW MORE
The purpose of fire blankets is primarily to extinguish cooking type fires where the blanket can prevent oxygen from getting to the fire and therefore extinguishing it.
Fire blankets also have limited use in extinguishing a person whose clothing has caught fire.
Fire blankets come in a variety of sizes from 1m2 to 1.8m2 and must be replaced if used.
Ensure that the installation of both fire extinguisher & fire blankets in domestic or cooking situations is located well away from the likely source of fire (2 metres min) and preferably near the exit from the kitchen.
If you use a fire blanket on a cooktop be sure to turn the gas or electricity off.

EXIT & EMERGENCY LIGHTING
Exit and Emergency lighting is a critical aspect in protecting life in the event of a fire or emergency. Exit and emergency lighting, installed and maintained in accordance with AS 2293.1 & 2, provides an illuminated path of egress from the building to nominated exits and emergency assembly areas.
There are many different types of exit and emergency lights that are designed to function when power has failed.
It is critical for building occupant safety that the correct type and quantity of lights are installed in the correct locations, and that they are functioning.SHOW MORE

FIRE DOORS, FRAMES & HARDWARE
Survival Solutions Can provide a range of fire door solutions to meet the requirements of the Building Code of Australia, AS 1905.1 2005 & AS 1851.
The design, installation and certification of fire doors must be carried out by suitably qualified technicians, however regular inspections can be carried out by building occupiers, thus reducing on inspection cost.
Survival Solutions advocates an annual inspection resume for fire doors in occupied units to coincide with the issue of AFSS to councils. As everyone knows it can be a difficult process to gather all building occupants at the same time to carry out inspection and we believe more sustainable to check doors once per annum. This rule does not apply to doors in common area where high traffic and damage can occur with anyone noticing. In this circumstance, we offer a bi annual inspection.SHOW MORE
SMOKE ALARMS - BATTERY, 240V & WIRELESS
Smoke alarms are designed to achieve one thing, get humans out alive. Smoke alarms are devices that have the sounder built into the detector and will activate in the presence of smoke or heat.
History: Over the years we have all been encouraged to install smoke alarms as an early warning of fire, which can be particularly dangerous when asleep. The legislation now makes it mandatory to have working smoke alarms in a rented building and new homes. Smoke alarms can come in 240 volts hard-wired electrical and battery, stand alone or inter-connected. Photo optical alarms are far better in regards to protecting your home and family. If you are not sure what you have you should consider purchasing a couple of battery operated photo optical alarms from a local hardware store or supermarket and installing them in addition to any alarms; you may already have. Smoke alarms can be installed quite easily with double sided tape, remembering to connect the battery first.
