The fleeting nature of the hotel business means that the installation, specifications, and maintenance of fire and security alarm systems require specialized knowledge and expertise. No hotel operator wants to hear a fire alarm - whether it is a false or real activation. The consequences are life threat, revenue loss, and reputational damage. Therefore it is imperative that all employees are well trained, the locations of guests and visitors are recorded, and the fire evacuation procedures are well communicated. Hotels, in terms of their purpose, pose a greater potential risk as guests are there to sleep, in unfamiliar surroundings and may not be aware of emergency fire procedures and evacuation methods. Employees generally work shifts and also deal with new clients every day. This may mean that training can be difficult to arrange and difficult to achieve consistent levels of compliance with fire and security policies.
Another risk factor is that hotels involve operating a fire and security protocol on multiple floors. The last thing you want as a hotel owner is to fire the alarm on the floor, which makes other residents unaware of the danger and are still sleeping in their room or evacuating an entire hotel because of the false alarm! This is where it is extremely important to have a fire alarm capable of determining the trigger point, which offers a mixture of audible and visual alarm signals, and staff is trained to know exactly how to treat guests in a very stressful situation.
Why is the fire alarm essential in your hotel?
The concept of full monitoring is most applicable to hotel fire detection systems, ensuring the whole building is monitored. This includes not only all rooms, corridors, stairs, and waiting rooms, but also all air conditioning, cable channels, supply poles, suspended ceilings, raised floors, and similar structures that allow smoke and fire to spread. Special attention should be given to critical areas where many people may be present, regions with many heat sources, large fire loads, or large deception phenomena.
Critical areas include the following:
• Guest rooms
Usually the largest percentage of the floor area of the hotel occupied by the same guest rooms. This is also the least controlled area where guests cannot Include in regulatory fire protection measures. A wide variety of ignition sources, such as excess heat electrical appliances (fridge and TV) or careless handling of Smoking products or candles put the hotel guests in a great position of Danger, especially when the fire starts at night.
Large cooking pots, frying pans, especially deep fryers represent a very serious fire hazard in hotel kitchens. This is mainly due to the strong possibility of a fire break because of the high temperature as well as the local high fire load.
These areas should be considered relatively critical areas in the Hotel. First, they may have a very high load of fire (for example the Amount of dirty linen) Secondly it provides high-risk because of the possibility of hectic electrical installations.
These areas should be considered relatively critical areas in the hotel, due to the variety of ignition sources such as candles or cooking and frying on the table.
Because elevators should not be used in the event of a fire, the stairs play an important role as a basic escape road in hotel buildings.
