ASFP takes first steps with RIBA-based Work Plan for Fire Protection

Niall Rowan CEO of ASFP, introduced a FIREX panel session about improving passive fire protection, recapping the progress made by the ASFP panel of experts with the development of an overarching Construction Strategy. Since its inception at FIREX in 2016, the panel has convened at a number of meetings and a roundtable to improve collaboration across silos in the construction industry with the aim of engaging fire safety engineers at an earlier stage in the construction process. This has resulted in the first steps being taken to deliver a RIBA-based Work Plan for Fire Protection to combat the fragmentation with regard to best practice in the world of construction, from building contractors to insurers.

The ASFP panel of experts was set up to include stakeholders from across the construction industry and represents the views of the following groups: architects/designers, criminal regulatory lawyers, fire engineers, tier-one contractors, passive fire protection manufacturers, passive fire protection insurers, the PFP trade body, fire service, building control, insurers, building owners. A number of these experts were present at the panel session to discuss the new Work Plan and answer questions from the audience. Present: Paul Bussey architect RIBA committee; Damian Ward Technical Compliance manager; Colin Wells Aviva; Glenn Horton consultant fire engineer; David O Reilly ASFP Ireland; Carl Atkinson Chairman.

7 Work Stages of Fire Management Architect Paul Bussey (AHMM) introduced the Fire Risk Identification, Evaluation, Reduction & Communication Process by RIBA work stages the panel has been working on. This new work plan proposal investigates the possibilities for introducing a sign off process as construction progresses, with all information reaching the end-user to support adequate fire risk management. The RIBA work stages method was chosen to identify each of the stakeholders and to define their roles and responsibilities at each stage, specifying who would contribute, inspect and sign off. Bussey explained: Building regulations do not have a good process throughout architects are trained as general practitioners and cannot be expected to be expert in every field. So we are trying to work with other specialists and bring them in the process at the right time The RIBA work plan methodology is used by UK architects to manage and plan the building design and construction process. Bussey introduced the 7 work stages of fire management that have been added to this: (Stage 0-1) Fire Risk? L,M,H; (Stage 2-3) Fire Design Strategy; (Stage 3-4) Fire Design & CDM; (Stage 3-4) Contractor Fire Plan; (Stage 4-5) Specialist Fire Input; (Stage 6-7) Fire Management. As Bussey explained, Stages 2&3 are the early stages in which big decisions need to be made about risk assessment. As architects progress through the stages, more detailed performance criteria are required and collaboration with technical fire experts and engineers becomes key.

At the early stages obtaining the right information about interfaces between one material and the other is an important aspect of the fire risk assessment, but details about requirements are often lacking. Simplifying the whole process will make it clear at the tendering stage how far the design has been developed. The next hurdle to overcome is the prescriptive stage: here a lot of specialist input is required and the input has to be coherently integrated. In the Fire Management stage the project is handed over to the client who has to start maintaining the building and has to know what exactly has to be maintained. The panel is working towards a document that captures all of this process with details about installation and certification resulting in a manual that can be used to check the process. The aim is to encapsulate key information and identify the role of each of the stakeholders for each of the RIBA work stages. Currently a discussion is underway to see whether inspection sign-off should be a regulatory sign-off as it is in Ireland. Ensuring there is a paper trail of sign-offs is an important part of the improvement proposed. But who exactly is responsible for carrying these out has not yet been established.

David O Reilly explained that the current code of practice in Ireland gives the owner paramount responsibility for appointing competent designers, certifiers and contractors. These assigned certifiers must be registered architects, chartered engineers or chartered surveyors. Colin Wells (Aviva) also pointed out that insurers would like to be involved at the earliest possible stage of design. However, this can often result in a discussion about costs and a discussion about risk needs to be had at this stage to assess whether the building should itself be protected once everyone is out of the building. During the Q&A the question was raised why no one from local government was represented on the panel. However Rowan explained that a representative from a local authority is on the panel but could not attend the session, noting that they are one of the most important stakeholders for sign off. Another point of interest raised was the problem that approved inspectors are paid by the client and that this can cause a conflict of interest. The panel acknowledged this is a problem that needs to be addressed. Professional standards need to be raised and attitudes need to change to ensure standards.

The work stage plan formalises the process. It explains a very complicated system and perhaps a plan of work is also required for refurbishments. But it needs to be simplified into a usable document. Also more complex building will require more complex solutions but ultimately it is important to ensure collaborating on every project is coordinated. The challenge is to get the right people involved at the right time.

Aurora debuts long range facial recognition sensor at IFSEC 2017

IFSEC 2017 launch Facial recognition technology developer Aurora has unveiled at IFSEC 2017 a long range sensor that extends near infrared capabilities to a wider range of distances, making it suitable for more applications. Queue management, surveillance and VIP identification are possible applications with the technological advance. Aurora s specialist biometric imaging and illumination technology is designed to work with the latest versions of the company s deep learning-based facial recognition engines.

With its near IR -based facial recognition, Aurora has logged millions of successful events in applications, including time and attendance, airport passenger management and access control. Now, the company s core technology, FaceSentinel LR, uses high speed global shutter technology and a high brightness near-IR ceramic flash to deliver HDR still frames to Aurora s facial recognition engine. Aurora s head of sales and marketing Gary James says FaceSentinel LR addresses issues common in the operation of facial recognition with visible light CCTV images. This can hinder accuracy in situations where the subject s face is not directly looking at the camera. James says: The sensor is highly compact, with very low power consumption, despite its powerful output and processing ability. This extends the operational range of our IR face recognition capability fivefold, opening up many new applications such as queue monitoring and covert identification. At IFSEC Aurora is also showcasing its FaceSentinel sensor integrated with the Fastlane Glassgate 300 turnstile, operating in both token-free Identification mode that allows registered users access simply by looking at the sensor and Verification mode, which adds a biometric layer to the functionality of any access control system. FaceSentinel uses artificial and infrared light to achieve unparalleled facial recognition speed, accuracy and reliability. Aurora s facial recognition technology is used throughout Heathrow Airport for boarding pass verification as well as within British Airways domestic self-boarding gates.

Integrated Design Limited (IDL) is the designer and manufacturer of Fastlane Turnstiles and Door Detective anti-tailgating products, and has over 30 years of experience and a worldwide on and installation network. At IFSEC International 2017, FaceSentinel and FaceSentinel LR are running on Integrated Design Limited s stand E1550. The company makes turnstiles and door tailgating detection products.

Panasonic to take new direction at IFSEC

IFSEC International 2017 Panasonic Business is set to launch a new direction for its European security business at IFSEC 2017, asking the industry to change how CCTV is perceived and procured. Panasonic proprietary technology such as rain wash coating, dehumidification and smart coding technology reduce the overall cost of maintaining and operating CCTV technology. In order to place a value on this, the company has commissioned an ROI calculator, which it will present at IFSEC, which compares the lifetime cost of security cameras from leading manufacturers to determine which provides best long term value.

The calculator examines the cost of data storage and transmission, maintenance and cleaning, the potential risks associated with poor cyber security as well as the revenue generative potential of people counting and age and gender recognition technology. For a couple of years Panasonic has been talking about how its unique embedded camera technologies reduce the total cost of ownership, said John Boyle country manager for Panasonic UK. In addition, our ability to offer end to end cyber security protects organisations against data breaches and prepares them for forthcoming changes to data protection law. So, the traditional approach of procuring on the cost of the camera doesn t do us any favours and we need to change the way the market views the buying of security technology. This year at IFSEC, we want to initiate some new discussions with some system integration partners, who recognise that the cost of the box is only the start of the journey. As a platform for exposure at IFSEC 2017, Panasonic have invested in exclusive sponsorship of the Security Management Theatre, at the same time as partnering with organisers UBM to provide a Panasonic branded meeting space. Through the IFSEC Meetings Service, key security markets such as city surveillance, banking and retail will be able to book meetings directly with Panasonic at the event. The company will also present seminar topics on cyber security, maintenance free city surveillance and smart compression technology across the event at London s ExCeL Centre. We want to take a more consultative approach.

We want to understand the challenges that our SIs have and chat through how Panasonic s uniquely wide technology portfolio can meet their increasingly complex needs, added John Boyle.

Securing the IoT Fortress Cyber Security has launched Fortress UTM, a residential unified threat management (UTM) appliance, at CES 2017. Securing both computers and internet of things (IoT) systems, it s the first solution of its type. With the IoT market exploding and cyber security professionals scrambling to keep up, IoT developers have been accused of complacency over the threat posed by hackers.

Fortress UTM, which provides intrusion detection and prevention, firewall and anti-virus for all Wi-Fi and IoT/Ethernet attached systems, seeks to combat the growing threat of data theft, ransomware, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and the commandeering of corporate IT resource to distribute stolen content or host and distribute sexually explicit material. Until now, there has been no enterprise-grade complete solution for home worker IT/IoT data security, says Peter Kassabov, chairman of Fortress Cyber Security. Alternatives are single-function solutions that protect the PC, but don t deliver comprehensive services to every attached device. The modern cybercriminal is both sophisticated and patient Fortress UTM provides consumers with an easy-to-use device with monitoring, detection and defense for the threats they never saw coming. Features: Attacker behavior detection Device vulnerability assessments CyberGuard 24/7, a security operations centre providing incident response and mitigation services Real-time verification of every connection in the home and capture and detonation of any connection brought into home from an outside network 7 touch screen displays network status by colour (green, yellow and red) Users prioritise connectivity for three devices, device activity and filtering and what devices are connected to the appliance. Powered by ARM processor from NXP Semiconductor and features dual band 3/3 802.11ac Wi-Fi, full router capabilities and 4 Gigabit-Ethernet ports Fortress will be pitched as a cyber security as a service solution through collaborations with home security providers and luxury home builders.
