Fire Alarm & Monitoring Systems

Detecting a fire early can mean the difference between losing everything and keeping loss and damage to a minimum A fire alarm system warns people when smoke, fire, carbon monoxide or other fire-related emergencies are detected. These alarms may be activated automatically from smoke detectors, and heat detectors or may also be activated via manual fire alarm activation devices such as manual call points or pull stations. Alarms can be either motorized bells or wall mountable sounders or horns. They can also be speaker strobes which sound an alarm, followed by a voice evacuation message which warns people inside the building not to use the elevators.

Conventional fire alarm systems

• Conventional, or four-wire, fire alarm systems have been extensively used in smaller properties such as shops and restaurants for many years.

• If a detector is activated, the control panel identifies the circuit that contains the triggered device and so indicates the zone from which the fire alarm has originated, but the area then has to be manually searched to pinpoint the individual device..

Analogue-addressable fire alarm systems

• Analogue-addressable fire alarm systems give details on individual detectors, whereas conventional systems only give information about specific circuits or zones.

• Addressable or “intelligent” fire alarm systems are designed for large commercial premises and more complex networked systems, since they are much more expensive and more complicated than conventional two- or four-wire systems, having increased flexibility, intelligence, speed of identification, and scope of control..

Aspirating smoke detection systems

• Although technically a detection solution, aspirating smoke detection systems are extremely sensitive and can detect very small or smouldering fires far quicker than other systems.
