We realize that time is money so we always commit and follow through under all time constraints. All of our projects are constructed with our own fit-out team.
There are a number of regulations to adhere to when redefining an existing and new building in order to comply with fire safety regulations. MAF team will work with you to provide advanced fit-out jobs as per Civil defense rules and regulations.
Building up a tamper-proof fire safety system is an expert task. Even the minutes of error would augment itself into a grave situation, rapidly. So we have a ‘check-up’ system, for those who do not have AMC, which includes maintenance, servicing, and also the replacement of fixtures if required. So we help you remain safe by correcting any flaw that occurs in your existing system with our exclusive rectification services. We offer you high-end rectification services so that you can remain safe by correcting any flaws that occur in your existing system and be doubly assured.
One of the most important elements of a commercial fit-out is the correct installation and maintenance of Fire and Safety Services. This involves qualified services specialists and is subject to strict regulations. These regulations are issued by the NFPA and Dubai Civil Defence including Standards of Performance as well as the Standards of Maintenance. It is expected that as a possessor, know and understand the responsibilities with regards to fire and safety at the commercial premises.
The possessor will do so by engaging a preferred Fire and Safety Services company to provide technical expertise and carry out the installation as part of the overall fit-out. The location and number of Fire Sprinklers, installation of Emergency Warning, Intercommunication systems, and provision of Smoke Detectors, Manual call points, and sounders are just some of the critical aspects of this work. The Fire and Safety technicians will ensure that all work is carried out in strict accordance with regulations and that the safety of those working within or near the premises is assured at all times.
We’re proud to say that we have grown into what we are today because of our very special patrons – our clients. Empowering them with the platinum value for their trust in us, we work according to their specific requirements, no matter the magnitude or scope of the task.
We’re passionate about what we do. All those little, yet crucial tasks involved in the designing of a complete fire fighting system excite us. Thus we would be more than happy to assist you right from the conception stage of a project. This gives you an added advantage of having the benefit of avail of our expertise right from stage 1 so that your dream project would have a fire fighting setup of superlative standards.
We MAF Fire Safety and Security, prepare the design drawings, which are to be submitted for approval based on the submitted specifications. MAF team design engineers who are proficient in typical fire protection system layouts.
As with the bids, the owner’s engineering representative should thoroughly review the design drawings and calculations for technical correctness and compliance with the specifications. Only after the owner’s representative and the insurance carrier have accepted the drawings and calculations should they be submitted to the local jurisdiction for approval.
This acceptance will ensure that the people with the final approval will put their stamp on the drawings last. Otherwise, a design may be approved by the fire department or building official and then rejected by the owner and/or the insurer, only to be resubmitted to the fire department or building official.
Most contractors do not have the capabilities to develop certainly specialized designs, such as turbine/generator protection, flammable liquids storage/handling, and LPG tanks. In such cases, our team should be consulted for the preparation of design drawings. The possessor should then be asked to bid on the installation based on the already prepared design drawings.
Only after acceptance/approval has been obtained in writing from all review agencies should the installation begin. The failure to do so could result in major changes after the system has already been installed. The possessor would likely pass those additional costs along to the owner. Fire safe practices should be in place during installation, including good housekeeping and the proper supervision of cutting and welding. The owner’s representative should make periodic progress inspections to check for non-conformance issues and good work practices.
Acceptance evaluation of installed fire protection systems includes design and installation verification as well as acceptance testing. A final "walk-down" of the installation by an experienced fire protection specialist ensures that the systems were installed as designed.
The specialist checks to make sure that no unauthorized or non-conforming changes have been made during the installation, and that field changes have been appropriately made. The final verification includes all details, equipment, and devices and includes functional tests of components and integrated tests of the system.
Significant engineering compliance with standards and safeguards goes into a fire protection system. Fire protection systems require additional safeguards because testing under actual performance conditions is not feasible.
Even though fire protection systems cannot be tested under actual operating conditions, several steps need to be completed before a system can be considered reliable and ready. Acceptance testing refers to the non-destructive tests that can be performed to assess the system’s ability to meet the established performance criteria.
For water-based systems, this includes pipe flushing and hydrostatic tests, full trip testing of actuating valves, and testing of all associated alarms. For gaseous fire suppression systems, this includes a complete operational (trip) test and the release of agents for carbon dioxide and clean agent fire suppression systems.
For other gaseous systems, a door fan test should be performed to assess the "tightness" of the protected space. Integrated system tests ensure that suppression systems, fire detection systems, fire alarm systems, and any associated systems work properly together.
