Fire Alarm System
Fire alarm technology will keep your family safe, no matter what happens
Fire Alarm System is designed to alert us to an emergency so that we can take action to protect ourselves, staff and the general public.
Fire alarms are found in Offices, Factories, and public buildings, they are a part of our everyday routine but are often overlooked until there is an emergency at which point, they might just save our lives.
The “Brain” of the fire detector system is the Fire Alarm Control Panel. It is the central hub for all of the detector signals to be wired to and provides a status indication to the users.
The unit can also be set up to simulate an alarm for use in routine Fire and evacuation drills, so all staff knows what action to take in the event of a real fire.
What is a Fire Alarm System?
the alarm is triggered, sounders will operate to warn people in the building that there may be a fire and to evacuate.
The fire alarm system may also incorporate a remote signal system which could then alert the fire brigade via a central station.
Types of Fire Alarm Detectors?
At the core of a fire alarm system are the detection devices, from sophisticated intelligent smoke detectors to simple manually operated break glass units, there are a wide array of different types, but we can divide them into groups including:
- Carbon Monoxide detectors
- Multi-sensor detectors
- Manual Call Points
- Heat detectors
- Smoke detectors
Carbon Monoxide Detector
A carbon monoxide detector or CO detector is a device that detects the presence of the carbon monoxide (CO) gas to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. In the late 1990s Underwriters Laboratories changed the definition of a single station CO detector with a sound device to carbon monoxide (CO) alarm. This applies to all CO safety alarms that meet UL 2034 standard
A smoke detector is a device that senses smoke, typically as an indicator of fire. Commercial smoke detectors issue a signal to a fire alarm control panel as part of a fire alarm system, while household smoke detectors, also known as smoke alarms, generally issue an audible or visual alarm from the detector itself or several detectors if there are multiple smoke detectors interlinked.
The Multi-sensor detectors combine inputs from both optical and heat sensors and process them using a sophisticated algorithm built into the detector circuitry.
When polled by the control panel the detector returns a value based on the combined responses from both the optical and heat sensors. They are designed to be sensitive to a wide range of fires.
Manual Call Detector
As a means to manually trigger fire alarms, manual call points play an important part in building a strong defense against fire hazards. In stressful, dangerous situations it is essential that the alarm can be activated quickly, easily and reliably from all call points – whether they are mounted indoors or outdoors in harsh environmental conditions. This is why we offer a selection of both conventional and addressable manual call points for standard applications as well as robust heavy-duty call points for open-air and/or special industrial use.
