Darch Plaza – Linear Heat Detection Cable
As incumbents for the fire protection maintenance we initially received a callout to an alarm activation. Cause was identified to be linear heat detection cable located within the ceiling space of multiple tenancies throughout the centre.
Identifying the cause of the alarm was initially easy however locating the exact section of cable damaged was hard. Subsequent investigations identified a number of affected areas with the cable melting against the metal purlins of the roof in mid summer conditions.
Our services coordinator ensured each tenant affected was well versed on what scope needed to be carried out to address the issue. A new linear heat detection cable was sourced and installed with no businesses affected.
