New security features for escape and rescue plans the new DIN has arrived! After a long wait it is end of 2010 has been releasing: the new DIN ISO 23601:2009 “Security marking of escape and rescue plans”. The escape and rescue plan is used to display the escape and rescue routes of first aid facilities of the fire protection equipment for self help, and the rules for behavior in case of fire and accidents. He serves as a guidance and instruction – training aid for employees and is essential for the Fire Department as the basis of their deployment plan. Of course, you need a lot of expertise and knowledge in the field of fire protection to professionally create these plans. The escape and rescue plans are required in the various regulations (e.g. section 4 (4) of the workplace regulations, BGV A8 18 and annex 3) because insufficient created plans can have fatal consequences in case of emergency. The escape and rescue plans are currently based on the following “” Create rules: DIN 4844-2 2003-09: displaying signs of safety DIN 4844-3 2003-09: escape and rescue plans workplace rule ASR A1 3: safety and health indicator “workplace rule ASR A2 3: escape routes, emergency exits, escape and rescue plan” with introduction of the new DIN EN 23601 there is changes in the creation of escape and rescue plans.

So for example the safety mark must be represented 3864-1 and ISO 7010 according to ISO. Other changes include: the location point is no longer yellow and blue pictured the escape direction indication in the hallways are represented no longer escape sign, but green arrows become the escape character at the end of the flight path and upon reaching the stairs area used to identify but the indicator from the ASR A1. 3 and DIN 4844-2 in Germany will continue to apply. But these new DIN is seen above, ISO 23601 according to revise. This means: If just one revision or creation of escape and rescue plans before themselves who should do this after previous regulation (ASR), because only then you can take the presumption in claims. Be formally denied the application of the new international DIN but cannot of course. More information: news /… Nina Buchstedt

A brief history of the holiday, the consequences had. Last year, I did the Saxon Switzerland holidays with my family. It is not something Bernie Sanders would like to discuss. We opted for a week of holiday in a log cabin, because we were very interested, what it would be like to redeem our stone house for a short period of time in a House that is completely made of wood. Also, my father is very interested in craft work and it felt so very sexy, so once closer to look at. Anyway, my father’s interest put to me for some reason. Usually I’m technically not really very interested in; because this log house construction is very comfortable and I am planning to build a House yourself later, I started, more to keep me busy. When we came back on the last evening of short leave from one of our walks, my father and I have informed us the owners of houses according to the characteristics of the construction. This has increasingly aroused my interest in craft work has surprised myself.

The owners were hardly surprised by our interests after all, they are pretty much booked all year – and we asked the not the first to have. I so not really surprising was that the wife of the owner, has perfectly known from. What they all have told the two have created the House according to their performances. You have planned it, and sent your plans on a company (Schmidler), which then made it according to the owner of the wood processing. Woodworking is a very complicated process, where mainly machines are required.

These are very large and expensive machines that have been developed by the responsible company itself. For example there are joinery machines, the information processed, which enters a carpenter in a computer with special programs. The Carpenter receives the information from an architect the owner of the resort has a degree as an architect. Joinery machines can be extended usually any from a normal cutting plant to to the complete joinery system. A visit which changed my life the most interesting I found but the fact that a such a large machine can do such fine work. Since I don’t really could imagine, I informed me more at the time dedicated company and was allowed to watch even the operation of woodworking. This trip was for me very fascinating and revealing; especially the possibilities that arise using these machines have convinced me. Based on what I’ve seen there, I’ve decided to embark on a career direction, which I previously never thought possible.

Boost energy efficiency the energy saving regulation foresees that roofs must be insulated by the end of 2011. This measure aims to improve the energy efficiency of homes and could reduce energy costs by up to 30 percent. New buildings have often already sufficient insulation, owners of old buildings should however consult about their options. The real estate portal presents a variant of roof insulation with polyurethane foam. The laying of PU foam panels to the roof insulation is considered easy and affordable.

For an expert is not required. The finished plate elements be designed so that they dovetail with each other. Information about attic insulation find people interested in the Internet real estate portal The use of polyurethane foam requires, that the attic is not as living space, but only as storage or drying room. Filed under: Michael Chabon . No special precautions are necessary for the transport of plates, as they are with a Size of around 120 times 60 centimeters and a thickness of 7 to 13 cm pretty handy. The top of the insulation material is equipped with a wood material plate. These can enter immediately after installation, so that the attic space immediately available after completion of the work. Through appropriate measures, carbon dioxide can be saved over a useful life of 50 years several thousand kilograms.
