The headquarters of Public Bodies and Administrations as well as ports, airports, railway stations, subways, hospitals, stadiums, sports centres, prisons, municipal power supply companies, gas supply companies, water treatment, refuse collection and transports need ad-hoc control and safety systems.
They must be ready to react to all possible threats, such as accidents, thefts, terrorism and natural disasters, which may cause service interruptions and be a danger for safety.
Safety in these critical areas is guaranteed by designing, planning, installing, putting into service and maintaining anti-intrusion and anti-burglar systems in compliance with the CEI 79-3 and CEI EN 50131-1 Standards.
An assessment of possible threats and a risk analysis are carried out before designing the system, taking into account that public places are generally regulated by specific constraints concerning the field of pertinence.
The protection we offer includes the monitoring of access points, surfaces and volumes with an external perimeter protection of the industrial site, including fences and areas not built on. We also take the topography and the use of nearby areas into account.
For particularly critical external areas we offer anti-terrorism bollards, both fixed and mobile, which, depending on customer requirements,
preserve the city landscape, guarantee safety and, if necessary, allow the opening of an automated gate to allow the entrance of emergency vehicles and rapid evacuation of the relevant areas. Remaining on the subject of anti-terrorism, for ports, airports and prisons we offer systems with metal-detectors and X-ray control machines.
During the design phase we evaluate the possibility of protecting special areas containing assets which may be of particular importance for the Company within the relevant perimeter, while for rooms requiring a higher degree of safety, such as DPCs, servers and safes, ad-hoc multi-technology can be applied.
Pursuant to the CEI EN 62676 Standard, before designing a video surveillance system for public areas, we carry out an analysis of the specific requirements of the site and identify which areas require not only visual monitoring limited to the storage of images, but also active incident filming as well as detection systems. These monitoring functions are carried out as follows:
Public offices are always accessible and quite crowded. Relationships with the public may sometimes lead to possible conflictual situations.
However, employees need to have a quiet and protected work station. Therefore the two areas must be kept separate.
The access control system makes it possible to manage authorizations in a made-to-measure manner and guarantee that contact with the public is completely safe.
The public access control systems guarantee the following:
Quick fire detection in public places may save the life of many people and therefore correct design of fire detection systems is crucial.
The purposes of a fire detection system can be summarized as follows:
Design, planning, installation, putting into service, operational control, operation and maintenance of smoke detection and suction systems in public areas take place in compliance with the UNI 9795, UNI EN54 and UNI11224 Standards.
Because these are public places, specific laws, such as the following, must be applied: MD 22/2/2006 for offices, MD 18/9/2002 for hospitals, MD 19/8/1996 for show areas, MD 6/6/2005 for sports centres, PD 30/6/1995 for libraries and archives, MD 14/7/2015 for hotels, MD 21/3/2018 for schools, MD 9/5/2007 for museums and exhibition areas, MD 21/2/2017 for garages, MD 11/9/2010 for department stores and businesses, MD 21/10/2015 for subways and MD 28/2/2014 for camping places and touristic villages.
In most cases these places are very crowded and vulnerable groups (such as children, elderly people, invalids etc.) may be present. Therefore vocal emergency alert systems in compliance with the UNI ISO 7240 Standard may be necessary. These systems inform those present of a danger which may make controlled and safe evacuation necessary.
Switching on and off take place by means of dedicated central units capable of managing output and input modules for signaling failures and/or for the disablement of rooms in compliance with the EN 12094-1:2003 Standard.
