No two construction projects are alike. Added to this are the different regulations, special requirements and challenges. Customised protection concepts link together a variety of different systems and technologies in order to meet even the highest standards. The philosophy of WAGNER follows a simple principle: A fire prevention solution can only be planned optimally based on a risk analysis and the defined protection goals. From fire detection installations and highly-sensitive aspirating smoke detectors, to efficient gas extinguishing systems - the range of active fire preventions systems is vast. With OxyReduct® active fire prevention, WAGNER has also set a new standard in the field of preventative fire protection: Because sprinklers and conventional extinguishing systems are reactive systems and damage must be ruled out from the start in many sensitive areas containing high concentrations of valuables.
Fire detection, fire extinguishing, fire prevention and fire risk management are the disciplines WAGNER specialises in as a fire prevention expert. The systems must be optimally coordinated and perfectly harmonised to achieve maximum safety. But you have to be familiar with every detail of the technology to be able to plan precisely and build systems reliably. WAGNER supports specialist planners, architects and general contractors from the very beginning as an expert partner.
For fire prevention concepts in new buildings, complex aspects of the different construction partners involved must be taken into account. For example, does the operator plan to expand capacity in the future, meaning that a flexible design is required? Identifying the basic requirements is even more complex when renovating or changing the use of an existing building: In addition to the current applicable directives and requirements, planning permission granted in the past must also be assessed and compared with the current situation.
In addition to building regulations and special construction regulations, the building code requirements must also be taken into account when planning fire prevention systems. There are a range of laws and directives associated with fire prevention. The following generally applies for fire prevention: Companies are obliged to obtain the regulations on their own and to incorporate them in their planning accordingly. The most important legal regulations relating to fire prevention include:
For every construction project, specialist planners and architects must obtain information from the responsible fire insurance companies regarding the applicable regulations and requirements for fire prevention. This means that fires and operational interruptions as a result of fire can be covered by different insurance companies. The regulations to be observed in the fire prevention concept also depend on whether the insurer adheres to the suggestions of the German Insurance Association (GDV) or has issued their own regulations. Only if all regulations laid out in the code are observed can a settlement take place in the event of damage.
The requirements and wishes of the operator or building owner are essential when designing the future fire prevention system. The requirements to be taken into account include the planned usage type and the required operational and storage area, the building geometry and the general site characteristics. The individual protection requirement of the operator also plays an important role when selecting the fire prevention measures.
The WAGNER sales engineers plan the fire prevention systems and carry out the complete design and project planning tasks right through to the service specification with system description.
