ARRESTER SYSTEMS

Safety First
It is a legal requirement that fire doors be kept closed at
all times.This is important because fire doors are an
effective way of preventing the spread of dangerous smoke
and fumes from a fire.
On the other hand,you need barrier-free passageways for
unhindered movement of persons and efficient work processes,
for example in hotels,kindergartens,hospitals and business
premises.
Two Requirements,One Solution
How can these two conflicting requirements be met?
With arrester systems from effeff.
The principle is simple but extremely effective.Each fire door
is fitted with a door closer and a arrester device.Normally,
the arrester device,an electromagnet,holds the door open.
Visitors can pass unhindered,and business operations are not
hampered by the continual opening and closing of the doors.
Smoke detectors monitor the critical zones.
Reliable Protection
When danger threatens,the smoke detectors fully
automatically detect even the slightest concentrations of smoke
or fumes – day or night,even at weekends and outside
working hours.They immediately send a message to the
smoke protection switch.This interrupts the current supply to
the electromagnet,and the door closer closes the door
automatically,without outside intervention.This effectively
prevents the spreading of the highly toxic smoke and fumes.
If there are still people in the area of the fire,they can
escape by the doors,the door closer reliably ensuring that
the doors are again closed tightly against the smoke after
each person has passed.
The Complete System
effeff offers all the components needed for a functioning
system:smoke detectors,smoke protection switches,magnets
and counter holding plates,and interruptor pushbutton.
All the elements in this system are harmonised with each
other and carefully tested.This guarantees reliable functioning
and a long,uncomplicated lifetime.For reliable protection of
persons and property.

THE PRINCIPLE
8
Why Fire Barriers?
Fire and smoke doors,smoke flaps and similar installations
are legally required “fire barriers”.In case of a fire,they
prevent toxic fumes,smoke and flames from spreading
through openings in walls and ceilings.This protects people
and preserves the value of property.Fire barriers must be
kept closed at all times.
The disadvantage:
Closed doors hamper the movement
of persons and goods.
The danger:
The fire barriers are kept open by wedges
or something of the sort.In case of fire,the barriers can no
longer serve their purpose,and lives are endangered.
The solution:
effeff arrester systems hold fire barriers
open.Persons and goods can pass freely.When danger
threatens,that is,when a fire is only just starting,the fire
barriers are closed reliably.
Their protective function takes over reliably.
The Functional Principle
Fire barriers must be self-closing.However,to allow persons
and goods to pass unhindered,the barriers are normally kept
open by arrester systems.Should a fire start,the smoke
detectors detect the increased concentration of smoke and
fumes.The doors are released,and close automatically.

The fire barriers are normally held
open by magnets.
Persons and goods can move
unhindered.
Should a fire start,the magnets are
switched off and the fire barriers
close.Persons who are in the room
can flee safely.
The fire sections are closed off.
The escape routes remain free of
smoke.

Planning and Installation of
Arrester Systems
Arrester systems for fire doors must have a “general
certificate from the inspector of works”.Effeff arrester
systems are licensed by the Deutsche Institut fur Bautechnik
(DIBt,German Institute for building technology).They hold
the system licence Z-6.5-430.

The Components
Arrester systems for fire barriers always consist of several
components:
?
The
arrester devices (magnets)
,which
normally hold the doors open.In the case of an alarm,
or when triggered manually,they release the doors.
?
The
smoke detectors
,which are mainly installed
in the form of optical smoke detectors.They monitor the
concentration of smoke and fumes in the room.If this
concentration increases,they put the fire alarm box in
alarm mode.Another method is to monitor the room
temperature.Heat sensors are used for this purpose.
If the room temperature rises quickly,or exceeds 58°C,
the alarm boxes go into alarm mode.
?
The
smoke protection switch
,the central power
supply and distribution unit in the system.The signals
from the smoke detectors arrive here and are evaluated.
In case of an alarm,or if the integrated trigger switch
is actuated,the smoke protection switch switches the
magnets off.The doors can now close securely,thus
shutting off the rest of the building.
?
The
manual triggering buttons
,mounted
immediately next to the doors to allow them to be
closed manually.When this button is pressed,the
electrical circuit to the magnets is interrupted,and
the door is closed.

Central Power Supply and Processing Unit
The smoke protection switch accommodates the mains adapter
for the power supply of the entire arrester system and the
evaluation electronics.At the core of the system,the smoke
protection switch evaluates the incoming signals from the
smoke detectors.
If the signals indicate too high a concentration of smoke and
fumes,or too high a temperature,the smoke protection switch
interrupts the supply of electric current to the magnets.The
fire doors close,preventing the further spread of smoke and
fire to the next section of the building.

Which smoke detector for which room?
The system licence permits the use of two types of smoke
detectors in effeff arrester systems:
?
Optical smoke detector 60.030 Model 062040
?
Heat sensitive,thermo-differential detector
60.101 Model 062700
Which type of detector you should use depends on the
probable source and development of a fire.
Almost all fires start with a smouldering phase.Long before
a blaze starts,the fire is detectable by the presence of smoke
and fumes.In locking systems for fire barriers,
optical
smoke detectors
are used almost exclusively,because
they can detect smoke and fume particles in the air reliably.
Use heat sensors only in exceptional cases in:
?
Rooms in which dust,smoke,steam or aerosols occur,
because here the smoke detectors could trigger even
under normal operating conditions.
Examples:woodworking,kitchens,etc.
?
Rooms in which a fire could start without a smouldering
phase,or with only a short one.
Examples:ignition of solvent fumes,fluids,etc.
Tip:Smoke detector rather than heat
sensor
Give the use of smoke detectors the priority.
In the case of arrester systems for barriers in escape
routes and for smoke doors,smoke detectors are
compulsory.

Monitoring Range of smoke detectors
Usually,several smoke detectors are needed to provide
optimum monitoring.Smoke detectors have a limited
monitoring range of up to 4 metres in diameter.When
reading the following explanations,bear in mind that the
entire width of the opening must always be monitored.
In the case of openings wider than 4 metres,or by very
high ceilings,you must install correspondingly more boxes.
Number of smoke detectors
The required number of smoke detectors and their correct
mounting depend on structural criteria of the building.
The following diagram shows a simple way to determine
the minimum required number:
Optical smoke detectors work on the principle of diffused
light.The interior of the smoke detector forms a labyrinth,
so that no external light can penetrate it.The pulsed
measuring light beam is reflected by any smoke that has
entered,and falls on the light-sensitive element.Here,the
incidence of light causes the current to increase.When the
threshold value is exceeded,“smoke”is recognised and the
alarm signal is triggered.
Optical smoke detectors react very promptly,especially in
the case of smouldering fires with large,light-coloured smoke
particles.Their advantage lies in the prompt reaction to
smouldering plastics,blazing plastics and smoking,burning
fluids.

Holding Magnets
The comprehensive range of effeff magnets covers all types
of application.Whether for mounting on the wall or the floor
with appropriate spacers – effeff is your competent partner,
world wide.
Use of door closers with integrated arrester devices instead
of magnets is permissible only when they have system
approval.
Magnets with Diodes
Magnets for integration in fire alarm systems and other
electrical systems can be supplied with a built-in recovery
and polarity reversal protection diode.
Order supplement ...with diode
Magnets and Counter Holding Plates
Are made of special magnetic soft iron.This ensures optimum
adhesion with low power consumption and slight residual
adhesion.
Magnets and counter holding plates must therefore always be
ordered together.
The surfaces of the magnets and counter holding plates are
nickel plated.
The magnets may be combined with mounting housings
and spacers.
Ease of Mounting
The counter holding plates are always larger in diameter
than the corresponding magnets.This makes it easier to
adjust to the magnet when mounting the counter holding
plate,because the excess size of the plate takes the
mounting tolerances into account.

Note!
Fire barriers must be able to withstand fires.
You must not drill holes in them,and you must use only attachment material with
a melting point of above 1000°C.
Attach the magnet counter holding plates on steel doors only with steel M5 riveted
nuts and steel screws.
With wooden doors,use steel woodscrews.The screws must not penetrate the wood
any farther than 3/4of the thickness of the door leaf.
Mount the magnet counter holding plates on the door leaf so that the attachment
screws are not more than 150 mm from the upper or lower edge and from the
vertical edge on the side on which the lock is (see illustration on the right).

ARRESTER EQUIPMENT
SWITCHING ELEMENTS
Marking the Door Areas
The areas of the fire barriers must be made recognisable.You
can do this by applying coloured markings to the floor and
ceiling,or,if this is not practicable,by signs on the fire barriers
themselves.There is no prescribed form for these signs.
However,to make them conspicuous,we recommend signs
roughly 300 mm x 150 mm at least with a red border.
Acceptance of the Arrester System and Inspections
Inspection interval
Arrester systems for fire barriers must be inspected regularly:
?
After installation in the form of an acceptance test by authorised
specialists,
?
Once a month by the operator,and
?
Once a year by authorised specialists.
The inspections must be initiated by the operator.Each inspection must be
logged.Draw the operator’s attention to these inspections.
The Acceptance Inspection
When a arrester system has been installed ready for operation in the
position where it is to be used an acceptance test must be carried
out to ensure that it is working properly and has been installed
correctly.The manufacturer of the release and locking equipment must
point out the need for this inspection.The operator must initiate it.
According to DIBt,effeff locking equipment may be acceptance-tested
only by:
?
effeff specialists,or
?
Specialists from a recognised test centre,or
?
Specialists who have been authorised by effeff.

REGULATIONS AND GUIDELINES
27
The acceptance inspection must include
the following points:
1.The units built into the arrester system must be identical with
the units specified in the approval certificate.
2.The identification of the installed units must be identical with
the identification specified in the approval certificate.
3.The interplay of all the devices must be inspected on the
basis of the approval certificate,and must be triggered both
by simulating the category of fire for which the smoke
detector is designed,and by hand.
4.The inspection must show whether the barrier is released for
automatic closing when the locking system becomes functional
(e.g.by removing a smoke detector or by cutting off the
power).
When the acceptance inspection is complete,the operator must
affix the acceptance plate to the wall close to the barrier.
Successful acceptance is documented in the acceptance log.
Routine Monitoring
The operator must keep the arrester system ready for operation
at all times,and check it for proper functioning at least once
a month.
In addition,the operator is duty bound to have an inspection
of the proper,fault-free interplay of all units carried out and
maintenance done at least once a year,unless a shorter interval
is specified in the approval certificate.
These inspections and maintenance must be carried out only by
a specialist or by a person specially trained for the task.
Scope,results and date of the regular
inspection must be logged.The log entries
must be stored by the operator.
Note!
Fire barriers are for saving lives!
The following points are therefore most important:
1.The fire barriers must be functional.They must move easily and
automatically and be able to close without hindrance.They must
not be blocked by objects,nor must they scrape on floor,wall
or ceiling.
2.The areas around the fire barriers must always be kept clear.
Nothing must be set down in them.Objects must not hang into
the area of the door.
Take care the objects cannot fall into the areas of the barriers.
