10 DETECTION IN BASEMENT 1. Is it mandatory in the first place? if so then which part in NBC & relevant clauses call for it? 2. If not, how important Is it from Life safety point of view? 3. Are the other builders getting away with it in NOIDA? 4. Can we do away with it and save some Rs. 1.5 cr /on an average Early information is basement is must for fast evacuation as these areas are critical and unattended most of the time and thus allow fire to spread with in building, if reaches to hazardous condition. Sprinklers activate at later stage (68 degree C). Fire alarm system is required to activate the smoke extraction system in basement for extraction of smoke to help occupants to escape at the earliest.

20 OPTIONAL EXCEPTION SPACE BELOW STAIRS

21 OPTIONAL EXCEPTION

22 OPTIONAL EXCEPTION BIS: Sprinkler protection required in case ceiling void is 800mm or more. Sprinkler protection required at top of elevator shaft, chute etc. Its required in boot and motor of escalator. Its required in lift pit where is there is possibility of accumulation of debris. Sprinkler protection is required under ducts or other obstructions, if width of obstruction is more than 1m. However its also required if width is more than 800mm and distance of obstruction from side wall is less than 150mm. Sprinklers shall be provided under work tables if there is power source below the table.

23 SPRINKLER IN BEAM COFFER As per National (BIS: 15105) and International (NFPA-13) codes, the beam depth is not the deciding factor for putting sprinklers in coffer. In actual, it s the distance of sprinkler from edge of beam. If sprinkler is coming with in distance if 1 feet from beam, then we can provide it below the beams and no requirement of taking sprinkler in coffer. However if distance of sprinkler is increasing from one feet, than the position of deflector shits towards roof.

24 WATER STORAGE & PUMPS

25 PUMP ROOM LOCATION Preferably the pump house shall be located outside the building at minimum distance of 6M from adjoining building as per BIS: As per NFPA-20, it shall be 50 m away from building. In case pump room is located inside the building (Gnd or basement),it should be separated from the rest portion with a wall having 2 h (4h)fire rating and fire check door at its entrance having 1 h tire rating. As per NFPA, the rating required shall be of 2 Hrs. The pump room inside the building shall have direct access in form of ramp / stair. The fuel tank capacity shall be sufficient to run the diesel engine pump for minimum 4Hrs as per BIS: As per NFPA-20, Fuel supply tank(s) shall have a capacity at least equal to 5.07 L per kw (1 gal per]hp), plus 5 percent volume for expansion and 5 percent volume for sump.

For smaller pumps, including jockey pumps, the clearance required should be 0.75 m at front and back and 0.60 m at sides and between pumps. The head room clearance for all pump houses should be minimum 2.75 m. As per BIS: 12469, the foundation of pumps shall have minimum grade of reinforced concrete as M 15. The thickness of the foundation shall be 50 mm for pumps up to 900 LPM, 75 mm for up to 2280 LPM, 100 mm up to 4500 LPM and 150 mm for higher pumps. As per NFPA-20, the weight of foundation must be at least 5 times the weight of pump-motor set. Foundation bolts of proper size should be embedded in the concrete to a depth of 8 inches to 12 inches and locked with either a hook around reinforced bar or by using J shaped bolt. The capacity of the jockey pump shall neither be less than 3 percent (with a minimum of 180 LPM) nor more than 10 percent of the installed pumping capacity.

SHAFTS: ENCLOSURE / INSPECTION DOORS OF ELECTRICAL SHAFT 2 HRS FIRE RATED ENCLOSURE / INSPECTION DOOR OF OTHER SHAFTS - 1 HOURS FIRE RATING

29 REFUGE AREA

30 BASEMENT PARKING NBC recommends that for basement car parking: a. Split area in to different compartments, each of no more than 1125 Sq Mtrs (If sprinklered). b. Provide Smoke Ventilation to achieve 30 Air Changes Per Hour. c. Limit Travel Distance to 45 Meters. The intent of compartmentation is to contain fire with in a certain space, delaying the spread, aiding occupant evacuation.

31 WATER CURTAIN Water Curtain Nozzle distributes water in the form of a flat extending all the way to the ground for fire compartment segregation. The fire water curtain system is designed prevent the fire from propagating into adjacent areas in case of a fire incident. The Water Curtain system consists of Pipe network, Water Curtain nozzles and Deluge Valve with trims. In case of fire, the Addressable detector at the basement ceiling level shall detect the heat and send the signal to the Fire alarm panel. The Fire Alarm Panel shall send the signal to the solenoid valve of the deluge valve of the respective zone. The Deluge Valve shall open to spray water through water curtain nozzles.
