Company Name: F.lli Razeto e Casareto s.p.a.

Product Name: OSSH

OSSH is a system of handles for fire doors which light up to be detected in critical conditions and provide information such as emergency indicating escape routes with the color of light. OSSH interacts with external systems (FDS,ESD, SMS,SMCS) via communication protocols such as modbus. Ossh is a truly smart handle: the management electronics are placed in the ceiling in a special junction box, wired with a BUS485 system that carries a network signal throughout the vessel and power supply to the handle through the lock clash.

It is simply installed, even in the case of retrofitting, as an unambiguous safety means of hazard communication via BUS485. The procedure of checking the operation of the fire doors before the ships departure is made faster by the presence of the illuminated handles: at a glance the crew can see if the doors are closed correctly or not. Ossh handles feature ESI antimicrobial system, a metal cluster complex that emits silver ions (Ag+) and other metal ions, it excites a continuous antimicrobial action ; the effectiveness against Corona Virus has been found with laboratory tests and certified by University of Modena e Reggio, Italy. Esi is actually a diffusion treatment and is therefore permanent, Ossh handles cannot be contaminated. the compliance with Rina’s additional note of Classe Biosafety Ship with reference to surfaces with high utilization, is underway.

The system is designed for use on board naval units – yachts, platforms and terminals; everywhere there is a need to also have ATEX certification (ships with alternative fuels such as F.C., LNG, Hydrogen, ammonia ).

The system integration” with the FDS – GAS Detection – LLL system is practicable, approaching the matter also with a risk analysis from which emerge that the systems are “additional / additional” and can be an added value for scenario cases such as evacuation / emergency related to security.
Our company is leading manufacturer of locks for marine fire doors and OSSH system is provided in kits which do not vary in size and shape from the standard ones. This makes it quite easy retrofit, adding important safety tools on any existing ship; ship owners can improve safety onboard their vessels by simply fitting OSSH kits on their ships’ firedoors. OSSH handles represent a system of mitigation of spread risk for pathogenic agents; a benefit to shipowners, passengers and crew , in compliance wit Rina’s additional note of Classe BIOSAFE SHIP with reference to “Surfaces with high utilization rate active materials”.

These factors Improve safety by avoiding injuries, illness, loss to passengers and to employees; to lower risk factor and running costs

Key factors which prove OSSH is worth winning the Innovation Award

  • Safety: sanitation, the handle surface cannot be contaminated by bacteria, fungi, virus, and keeps on the sterilizing action in the environment: a system of mitigation of spread risk for pathogenic agents.
  • Safety: green light to address passengers , guests and employees to escape routes ( fire -panic -gas) and save their lives
  • Safety: red light to prevent from opening the fire door during a fire.
  • Safety: door handles are visible during black out to highlight escape routes.
  • Security: in an anti-intrusion plans door handles indicate if a door needs to be locked and if it is actually locked.
  • Security: in an evacuation plan the color of the handle indicates if an area has already been checked.
  • Improvement : free of injuries, illness, loss to lower risk factor and running costs.
  • Optimization: easy to fit, the cable free power and data transfer system allows economical installation. Available for new constructions and retrofit.
