Honeywell TITAN SCBA facilitates easier and faster rescue of downed firefighters Honeywell has announced that its flagship Honeywell TITAN firefighter breathing equipment has been improved with a louder alarm to make it easier to find downed firefighters. Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) As part of their standard turnout gear, firefighters wear an air cylinder with a respirator and facepiece known as self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). This equipment includes an alarm system that sounds when a firefighter goes down or is motionless to alert others they need help. Honeywell's enhanced alarm now sounds at a higher volume and with a different sound pattern in order to be heard over background noise at the scene of a fire and from a longer distance. The alarm meets new requirements from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). "An SCBA is a critical part of firefighter's safety gear on the fire ground, and the improved alarm will do a better job of sounding an alert if they become incapacitated or motionless," said Lynn Feiner, product marketing manager for Honeywell First Responder products. "Honeywell is committed to investing in new solutions, including connected technologies that advance safety, so firefighters can focus their energy on attacking the fire knowing their equipment has the most advanced technology." Honeywell TITAN SCBA Honeywell TITAN is the only SCBA to offer dual-motion sensors Honeywell TITAN is the only SCBA to offer dual-motion sensors - one on the firefighter's front alarm system and a second on the firefighter's back alarm system. This dual-sensing feature helps eliminate false alarms because it is better able than a single motion sensor to detect even subtle motions of a firefighter. All new Honeywell TITAN SCBAs shipped after Dec. 21, 2016, include the improved alarm system. Fire departments seeking to upgrade their 2007 and 2013 edition TITAN equipment to the newer standard should contact their Honeywell-authorised service center or a Honeywell trained technician for more information.

Honeywell’s latest firefighter gear, Life Guard Hood ensures firefighters’ safety Honeywell, global supplier of protective gear for firefighters and other emergency responders, has developed a new hood to better protect firefighters from the long-term health threats of hazardous substances produced when today's building materials burn. Honeywell Life Guard Hood Honeywell's new Life Guard Hood features an innovative design and fabrics that provide better blocking protection against hazardous particulates and toxins compared with traditional firefighter hoods. It also features a lighter, roomier fit that integrates with a firefighter's self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and any other turnout gear. The hood was developed by Honeywell First Responder, whose products, ranging from helmets to boots to respiratory gear, is used by 80 percent of the 20 largest municipal fire departments in North America. Firefighting Gear "Fighting fires is dangerous enough, but the added risk posed by hazardous substances in smoke means we need to do more to protect the men and women who put their lives on the line every day," said Ken Schmidt, vice president and general manager of Honeywell First Responder, which provides head-to-toe protective gear for fire fighters and first responders. "Today, the most permeable piece of gear firefighters wear is their hood. We worked with fire chiefs and firefighters to develop our new Life Guard Hood, which blocks the particulates and toxins firefighters encounter in both air and water to help safeguard their long-term health." There were more than 500,000 structure fires in the United States in 2015, and new building materials make those fires even more dangerous to firefighters' long-term health. Modern synthetic products can release hazardous particulates, lethal gases and toxins when burned, and studies show that the skin and glands of the neck and face are especially prone to absorbing toxins. In addition, studies show that several types of cancer are occurring at higher rates among firefighters than the general population, according to the Firefighters Cancer Support Network, which provides education and support to first responders. Firefighters Safety Hoods such as Life Guard go a long way toward protecting responders better from airborne toxicants and particulates" "When training first responders around the country, we receive many questions about how firefighters can protect themselves better from the toxins that are present in fire smoke," said Jason Krusen, president of the Fire Smoke Coalition, which provides training to firefighters and first responders on the long-term health consequences of fire smoke. "Hoods such as Life Guard go a long way toward protecting responders better from airborne toxicants and particulates and reducing the long-term health risks." The particulate-blocking protection of the Honeywell Life Guard Hood is laboratory-proven and certified by the National Fire Protection Association.

FAAST LT easily adapts to meet the challenges of culturally important structures Culturally important historical buildings can present some of the most challenging applications for fire detection. Ornate architecture - which often draws high visitor numbers - requires careful consideration and care, creating the need for discreet fire detection that preserves aesthetical impact, without causing structural damage. Many applications of this nature are home to priceless and irreplaceable assets, so accuracy is also essential. At the same time, the sensitivity required for adequate protection must not result in increased false alarms, and unnecessary visitor evacuations. A recent fire at the National Trust’s Clandon House, in Guilford, UK - where a whole wing of the stately home was devastated when a blaze broke out in the basement, spreading quickly to the roof – illustrates the devastation a fire can have and why the earliest warning detection is essential. FAAST LT allows two-stage ultrasonic airflow monitoring Honeywell’s FAAST LT Aspiration Smoke Detector is being used in an increasing number of historical buildings, thanks to a comprehensive feature set designed to meet EN54-20 Class B and C applications where aesthetics matter, maintenance is often difficult and reliable accuracy is demanded. Featuring a near-invisible sampling pipe network with minimal aesthetical impact, a single device can monitor up to 2,000 m2 (Class C) and 600 m2 (Class B) areas where many point detectors would otherwise be required. Only minimal maintenance is needed on the device itself, thanks to innovative two-stage ultrasonic airflow monitoring at the inlets and optical chambers, identifying issues like clogged sample holes before they become an issue, for maximised system uptime. These system attributes allow FAAST LT to easily adapt to the conditions that make most other fire detection methods problematic; namely high ceilings, complex architectural features, reduced maintenance needs and false alarm immunity in fluctuating environmental conditions. Honeywell at world’s most famous historical buildings FAAST LT installations include a number of the World’s most famous historical buildings; St Luke’s Chapel, in Kings College, London; two of Sweden’s most culturally important churches – Kristine and Stora Kopparberg – located in Fauln; the Hagia Sophia Museum in Turkey – cited as the eighth wonder of the World for its architectural beauty and artefacts; the Abu Dhabi Presidential Palace; and the Minnesota Science Museum in the USA. Jonas Forslund, Project Manager for Dalarnas Säkerhets System AB, the fire safety integration company for Kristine and Stora Kopparberg Churches, comments on FAAST’s unique suitability and why this solution was recently chosen to preserve the two Fauln churches with over 1,000 years combined history. “We chose FAAST LT because it provides the highest safety provision, accuracy and false alarm immunity. This solution is ideal for aesthetically challenging locations where the architecture must be both preserved and showcased and the system’s IP65 rating and ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions is also attractive; both churches in Fauln feature hot and cold locations, which can cause issues for many other comparable detection methods.” Provides full system information at the control panel FAAST LT’s simplified installation, integration and maintenance is cited as another key feature Jonas Forslund values. “It was essential to implement a system that was easy to design and install and one that could be integrated with the existing Eltek Delta Fire Alarm and infrastructure. With the addition of relays and input modules, we installed FAAST LT dual-channel, which provided full system information at the control panel.” With the ability to remotely mount the device in an easily accessible location, creating simplified ground-level testing, FAAST LT easily adapts to meet the challenges of culturally important structures – a further reason this device is fast becoming the fire detection solution of choice for the World’s most prized and valuable architecture and assets.
