FIRE MONITOR TOWERS
Fire Monitor Towers are structural equipment used to increase the coverage area of fire monitors in order to approach a fire from a certain height above ground, such as marine terminals, loading docks or tank farms where high obstacles must be climbed to reach the source of the fire. The task starts from now; the structure must stand on its own, be resistant to wind and seismic forces, withstand the reaction forces caused by the monitor, and place all platforms, access ladders, pipeline pipes, etc. outside. outside and must deliver fire water/mortar to the end of the structure where the fire monitor is installed. Observation towers are typically constructed from carbon steel structural materials.
Material characteristics such as shape, grade and thickness are selected according to calculations made by the special FMEA software. Standard monitors are designed in accordance with Euro Code EN 1990, 1991, 1993, etc. series standards. Steel structures are classified according to several aspects such as strength class, service category and materials used. The monitor towers are subject to strict design and construction rules in accordance with the new European regulations, designed and manufactured in accordance with EN 1090-1 and EN 1090-1 with CE marking and notified body number.
