AbstractAbout AuthorsReferences
Low-rise construction is actively developing, and with it the market of building materials and products is undergoing changes. Moreover, more than 80% of fires occur in the residential sector. It is possible to prevent and minimize possible damage on the basis of the analysis of the causes of their occurrence in low-rise buildings. In this regard, the authors have systematized approaches to ensuring fire safety of low-rise buildings and structures in modern conditions, developed recommendations for the use of building products to solve such problems. What measures will help to avoid and detect the occurrence of a fire hazard in the operation of low-rise buildings and structures in time? To solve the issues of multifunctionality and fire warning in low-rise buildings, it is proposed to use an interactive construction product that makes it possible to automate the process of reporting the occurrence of a fire to the owner. The inclusion of such a construction product in the “smart home” system synchronizes its work with security systems, increasing the level of comprehensive security of low-rise buildings. The proposed ways for improving approaches to ensure the safety of low-rise buildings and structures contribute not only to the timely detection of fire, but also to the rapid response to the danger that has arisen. A way to prevent the spread of fire at objects of the low-rise residential development with the use of an interactive fire-fighting building product will help save human lives.
