Fire Alarm Systems
Conventional fire alarm systems, in their various forms, have been around for many years and have changed little in that time in terms of technology – although design and reliability have improved significantly. However, conventional fire alarms are a well-proven technology protecting many hundreds of thousands of properties worldwide. A conventional fire alarm system is often the natural choice for smaller systems or where budget constraints exist.
Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm Systems
Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm Systems differ from conventional systems in a number of ways and certainly add more flexibility, intelligence, speed of identification and scope of control. For this reason, Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm Systems are the natural choice for larger premises and more complex fire protection system requirements.
Smoke Detection Systems
The vast majority of fires start as very small smouldering fires and can remain like that for long periods of time. When the fire is very small it does not produce enough smoke or heat to set off a typical smoke detector. If you were alerted to the fire at this stage you could deal with it quickly and easily before any significant damage has been done. Aspirating smoke detection systems can detect smoke at vastly lower densities than ordinary smoke detectors. They draw air into the sensing chamber rather than sitting passively in the air stream. The built-in intelligence and the ability to “learn” its environment means that while an aspirating system can detect smoke at much lower densities it is not prone to false alarms. In essence, these types of pre-fire alarms buy you time – the critical factor in fire emergencies.
Video Smoke Detection
These fire protection systems use a method of smoke detection involves the analysis of video images provided by CCTV cameras. The presence of smoke particles can be detected, through the use of software which tracks the particles and the way in which they move. This method of smoke detection allows for the operator to provide a visual verification of the fire alarm, providing live information which can, in turn, be relayed to the emergency services, and coordinators who are attending the site.
