Where beauty and safety meet

Issue 1 2021 Fire & Safety

Revlon is a world leader in cosmetics, skin and personal care, and a leading mass-market cosmetics brand. Its global brand name recognition, product quality and marketing experience have enabled it to create one of the strongest consumer brand franchises in the world, with Revlon products sold in about 175 countries and territories.

Revlon SA head office, Isando, Gauteng.

Revlon South Africa recently commissioned a comprehensive fire detection system for its head office in Isando, Gauteng. The premises comprise an administration building, a warehouse and manufacturing facility. Brakpan-based fire detection and suppression installer, JMN Projects, was appointed to design and install the fire detection system.

The end user required the immediate identification of where an alarm is triggered, thereby calling for an intelligent fire detection system. An intelligent fire detection system uses a device’s unique address to automatically identify the device that triggered the alarm condition.

After a thorough investigation, JMN Projects proposed a fire detection solution comprising a one-loop advanced intelligent fire panel, 8 fire beam reflective optical beam detectors, 32 Apollo optical detectors, 8 Discovery manual call points, and 10 Apollo sounder beacons.

Technoswitch 27,5 V d.c. boxed power supplies were customised for the specific site requirements to provide battery backup for the optical beam detectors.

The end user further requested the ability to receive emergency notifications from the fire detection system via mobile phone. The GS-22 SMS Communicator offers a cost-effective solution to transmit emergency signals from the fire panel’s fire and fault relays to a mobile phone.
