We have all the knowledge and expertise to design and install any of the various fire alarm systems currently available to help protect your premises and its occupants.
We offer a free survey to assess and discuss your requirements and the options available to you. We will then provide you with a no-obligation quotation for the best product to suit your needs and budget.
Fire Detection is our business and system reliability is key hence we have chosen to work alongside Kentec and Hochiki. Kentec’s 35+ years expertise, workmanship, customer service and quality make them the perfect open protocol control panel manufacturer. Hochiki’s 100+ years experience and cutting edge commercial and industrial fire detection products have acquired global acceptance as the benchmark for high-integrity and longterm reliability. We work closely together and therefore, can provide a fully customisable service, to design and build high quality products to exacting customer specifications.
There are three main fire alarm systems to consider:
Conventional Fire Alarm System – This splits the building into compartmentalised areas called Zones. All devices are cabled in radial circuits, so that when a detector or manual call point is activated, a zone is then indicated on the control panel. To find the cause of the activation a search of the area shown on the zone chart is then required.
Addressable Fire Alarm System – Each device is assigned a unique address. The fire alarm control panel is programmed so that when a detector or manual call point is activated, the display will indicate the exact text location. This cuts down on the search time making it ideal for larger complex buildings.
Wireless Fire Alarm System – To avoid unsightly trunking and labour costs a wireless system is a good alternative. We can offer a wireless survey to ensure that this system is suitable for your building.
A wireless translator module is hard wired to the fire alarm control panel and communicates continuously with all the wireless devices. Wireless expander modules are used to extend the radio mesh network where necessary.
As with addressable systems, when a detector or manual call point is activated the exact text location is displayed on the control panel.
The device batteries have a 10-year life span when used under normal operating conditions.
