Monitoring life safety assets

D rax Technology’s new asset tracking solution, AssetWhere, is designed to help locate and, if necessary, monitor the status of life safety-related assets ‘including, but not limited to’, fire extinguishers, fire doors, hose reels, or evacuation chairs.

Sales director, Alex Cother, said: “We understand the challenges Trusts face in monitoring the condition of fire detection sensors and other life safety critical equipment. We also know healthcare estates teams now expect financial and productivity benefits, alongside enhanced compliance, when investing in new technologies.”

A ‘major London NHS Trust’ is currently working with Drax Technology running a trial in a busy hospital ‘street’ to investigate the feasibility of using the AssetWhere sensors to monitor fire door status and fire damper operation within one of its hospitals. The hospital’s acilities management provider is keen to measure the status and performance of its fire doors, and must meet KPIs in respect of keeping the doors maintained economically and operational. 

Drax Technology has installed 10 wireless sensors to monitor whether a door is open or properly closed. Once harvested, data can be used to generate reports and display key information on a dashboard, providing alerts to a change of state, when a service is due, or a replacement is needed. Reports can also be generated for analysis or compliance
