Case Study on Banco

Banco, Vadodara

Banco Products (India) Ltd. is an Indian stock listed company. The company is recognized as Star Export House by ministry of Commerce and Trade, Govt. of India. Banco has regularly expanded its footprint, product scope and has added new plants and capacities. The manufacturing plant being quite huge, had to follow the factory norms for fire safety as it could be vulnerable to accidental fires. Banco has strong focus on safety and security issues impacting their employees and their productivity.

The manufacturing unit aimed to ensure that everyone concerned with the management to all the workers understand the requirements of fire safety in order to ensure optimum safety for all who are present in the building. They aimed to focus on life and property safety. Banco wanted a solution that could match its required standards. They wanted to opt for a future ready addressable system that could pin point the exact location of fire as the manufacturing plant was big. The installation must not involve any changes to the existing building’s architecture.

The consultant for the project was Mr. Mukesh Vasu of Sardar Fire Consultants.

The Challenges of Banco Industry before NFire

Banco Industry is spread across almost 2 kms comprising of 15 buildings that includes offices, manufacturing units, factory, warehouses, etc., The lengthy wiring was estimated to be 5 times the total cost of the system. Hence, lengthy wiring was not possible. The foundry and all the heavy machinery could raise primary causes of destructible fire. Also, the possible malfunction in wires, debris in heat pump units, leakage or circuitry problems, fires from production materials, explosion, uncontrolled reactions with liquids, tube blockages, chemicals, electrical rooms and office environment can all lead to sparkling fires. Corrosion-induced tube tasks and slurry or polluted liquid flow can result in leakage or erosion. Packaged products in the warehouses and storage including foam/non-foam plastics, plastic pallets, cardboards and explosives can raise very high fire risks. Even in case of power cuts, terror attacks or any other emergencies, quick and planned evacuation is extremely important. Only early evacuation can contribute to life safety and early evacuation comes from early detection. Major design considerations for Banco were safety, technical leverage, highly reliable system that could last longer with low maintenance and installation cost.

Mr. Mukesh Vasu was given this task to find a solution that satisfied Banco’s requirements completely. After analyzing the necessities, he recommended NFire Solution to Banco Industry as the perfect fit. NFire Solution is an ideal solution as it is highly scalable, cost effective and highly reliable.
