Building installation

Protection and security in buildings

The well-being of people and the protection of material assets in buildings are top priorities, whether private, public or industrial.



Ensuring optimal escape conditions is a top priority. Escape routes must be kept free of fire and smoke to enable safe evacuation in the event of an emergency. Effective interaction of technical solutions and intelligent design is essential to save lives and minimize injuries. Maintaining the function of key electrical installations is essential to keep systems such as exhaust systems, emergency signaling and other important equipment running in the event of a fire.

Tested and certified safety

1. saving lives, 2. preventing fires and 3. minimizing consequential damage - these are the priorities when there is a fire. Cable systems must also make their contribution to this necessity, especially as the cable density in modern buildings is becoming ever greater. This is particularly important for power cables, because in the worst case they can cause a fire. How can cables contribute to positive behavior in the event of a fire, or what dangers do outdated, insufficiently fireproof cables pose? These questions can be divided into three topics:

  1. The cable must not contribute significantly to fire propagation. In particular, it must not spread the fire from one floor to the next. In addition, no falling or dripping parts should contribute to the spread of fire.
  2. Smoke and toxic gases should be avoided because they make safe building evacuation and emergency response difficult or impossible. Most fire deaths are caused by smoke and toxic gases, not by the fire itself. Therefore, this aspect actually deserves to be given top priority.
  3. After the fire, reconstruction is the next step. This is made more difficult if the fire has produced large quantities of corrosive fire gases, because these gases form corrosive acids (e.g. hydrochloric acid) which are finely distributed throughout the building far from the fire site and damage all metallic objects. Possible examples are: Reinforcing steel, metal structures, electrical installations, electronics, computer systems.
