NAFFCO– Fire Safety Solutions

Fire is the most common hazard. We don’t even realize that this hazard is present in all areas of life. In a normal atmosphere, most combustible materials are stored in a basic atmosphere. For example, homes, offices, schools, residential apartments, restaurants and hotels, shopping malls, etc. are all vulnerable to fire. There can be any time fire can strike – big or small, has devastating consequences.

Firefighting service has been provided for centuries, they used simple ways to extinguish fires. However, firefighters are trained in this modern time. They understand and can handle all sorts of firefighting equipment.

They have earned their name through dedication and maintain the quality of their products. When it comes to fire protection, NAFFCO takes pride in offering the latest and the most innovative equipment. 

Where there is smoke there is fire

The first sign of fire is smoke. It is very important to detect fire at the earliest stage. This would help to stay safe, and evacuation can be possible if this is done timely. A fire detection system is the most reliable way to avoid any severe catastrophe, property loss can be reduced if the fire detection system does early detection. But it is effective if it works timely. For the purpose, a fire alarm system is the best device. Efficient fire alarm systems are another smart production by NAFFCO.

These alarms usually transmit a signal to a staff, who monitors the system. Initially, the fire alarm system makes the people alert, who are around the fire-stricken area. For example, if it is a building, the occupants can evacuate fast and stay safe.

Hazards of flammable liquids

Pesticides, hazardous materials, corrosives and other such materials are highly inflammable. To meet the fire codes and regulations, these flammable liquids, are stored in a specially designed fire cabinet. NAFFCO has the solution for you to protect you from a potential fire – the fire cabinets from them are used to contain flammable fuels, chemicals and solvents, which tend to catch fire very easily.

More efficient system

One of the most effective and smart methods of controlling fire quickly is the sprinkler system which is also called fire pump. It is a common feature in many buildings because of their efficiency. The water is delivered through a sprinkler from the fire pump, its’s more intense and works with pressure, that is how the fire is extinguished much quicker.

Why Good Air Conditioning is Great for your Health

The warm weather is upon us and it’s that time of the year when we need to switch on the air conditioning. It’s also a time when we need to ensure the ACs are working in proper condition after months of not being in use and get them serviced if need be.

The great thing about using superior quality air conditioning is that not only does it provide you comfort but is also great for your health.

An AC reduces humidity in your home, but can also lower the amount of pollen, mold, mildew and other airborne outdoor allergens that can potentially lead to asthma symptoms. This is especially important since the outbreak of the coronavirus that requires us to stay home and maintain good hygienic conditions within our houses.

Air conditioners can also lower your exposure to indoor allergens, like dust mites. It is recommended that you routinely change the air filter in heaters and air conditioners to prevent asthma triggers.

Air conditioning filters are more effective in keeping bugs out than an open window which are open invitations for mosquitoes, flies and other annoying bugs. This is vital to protect you from diseases like dengue, malaria and skin allergies.

The cooler atmosphere generated by air conditioning helps us sleep more peacefully and we all know how important that is. Sleep deprivation leads to grogginess and low spirits during the day, emotional difficulties, poor job performance, obesity and a lowered perception of quality of life.

Good air conditioning can help you prevent sweating. When we sweat we are actually losing a large percentage of our water intake. It is important to keep hydrated especially during these quarantine days and the upcoming summer months.

And last, but certainly not the least, proper air conditioning reduces the risk of heat strokes. Research has proved that, “air conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat-related illness and death.”

For the best choice in air conditioning products throughout Pakistan and U.A.E, turn to the expert team at Fakhri Brothers, one of the leading importers and suppliers in the HVCAR field, based in Karachi since 1974. We value your health!

Prevention is Better than Cure-Think About the Fire Before its Starts

02:44 By

Today all public buildings, including offices, schools, and malls are built in a manner to offer an acceptable level of fire safety and minimize the consequential risks. This is a much-needed step in the right direction because in case of a fire the primary objective is to reduce the potential for death or injury.

Add to this the intention that even in case of a fire, the premises can continue to function after the fire and life may get back to normal as soon as possible after repairs. This is vital to protect proximal properties which may also catch fire and curb environmental pollution.

Here are a few things architects and builders need to keep in mind when designing premises which can offer maximum measures of fire safety:

Prevention:
Yes, the adage ‘prevention is better than cure’ is popular for the right reasons and applies to fire safety in the best possible context.

Proper Design:

To reduce the risk of ignition, builders and designers can design out ignition sources. Services and installations should be correctly designed, specified, constructed, checked and commissioned. Checking and replacement cycles should be in place so that correct operation can be maintained.
There is also a risk on fires caused by natural phenomena like earthquakes or lightening. Tall structures that are prone to such damage should possess a lightning-conductor system to dissipate the electrical shock directly to the ground.
For fires caused by human carelessness initiated by cigarettes, candles, matches, cooking and other appliances, having smoke detectors is the smartest possible solution.

Fuel limitations:
Limiting the amount of fuel available in a building will help to control the amount of material that will burn and release heat to feed the growth of a fire. It will also reduce the amount of smoke that can be produced.

Communication:
Having a sound and speedy communication system will help communicate the location of the fire to (other) occupants and convey the emergency to a fire control team. This can include alarms to be sounded, a controlled evacuation, triggering of smoke control systems or sprinklers.

Escape plan:
In case of the fire, the rule of thumb is to get everyone out to safety first and then stay out. Buildings must be designed so that occupants can escape safely if a fire breaks out. Architects must design buildings with accessible escape routes. Special consideration is to be given to people with mobility problems who may need assistance.

Containment:

Containing the fire after evacuation has taken place can be achieved by passive and active fire containment measures.
Passive measures concern the nature of the building structure, subdivision, and envelope. Active measures are those which have to be activated either automatically or manually. This includes sprinklers, fire hydrants, extinguishers, and smoke detectors. In the event of a fire, they will be activated by some agent or form of communication.


To make buildings safe from the risk of fire outbreaks the reliable name architects and designer partner with is Fakhri Brothers who specialize in fire fighting equipment. Fakhri Brothers are authorized dealers of NAFFCO fire fighting products an ISO 9001:2000 certified company with its World Headquarters in Dubai. From fire extinguishers, fire cabinet, firehouses, pumps, mobile and advanced fire fighting systems and fire trucks, the Company has diversified its product range to Passive Fire Protection and Automation and control division for all types of security and fire alarm system.
