Following the risk assessment, VSL will then evaluate the specific requirements for the fire protection system. This is benchmarked against past qualification tests of other VSL Fire Protection projects, which will determine if requirements meet and/or exceed qualification standards.
The subsequent process is the design integration phase, where VSL’s stay cable specialists and fire engineers work together to adapt certain aspects of the Fire Protection system to the existing security measures on the structure.
Design integration is extremely important as other protection and security elements may be supplied by third parties or where the Fire Protection system is retrofitted to an existing structure. VSL works closely with other suppliers and project partners to ensure a seamless integration and cohesive protection for the stay cable system.
