Fire detection is the core of fire prevention measures. Early detection is necessary for fire suppression and can limit the amount of damage. Our detection components range from traditional ionization and photoelectric detectors, to more sophisticated air sampling and linear heat detection equipment.
Air Sampling Smoke Detectors (ASSD) can detect a fire at its earliest stage. Unlike conventional smoke detectors that passively wait for smoke to reach them, the air sampling system continuously draws air from the protected area through a piping network to a detection chamber where it can detect the presence of particles that are created in the very early stages of combustion, even before smoke is visible. Air sampling systems are designed to detect fire in high value applications or properties where conventional fire detectors simply fail to provide sufficiently rapid response.
A Linear Heat Detection (LHD) system senses heat anywhere along the length of the installed cable which is located at “point of risk” and is fairly inconspicuous. This detection method signals an abnormal overheat condition pre-combustion, resulting in excellent fire prevention potential.
LHD has a long-established record of effective protection of life and capital investment , repeatedly illustrating its ability to operate within areas of limited access and surveillance and within environmental conditions that would render other forms of detection inoperable or subject to high levels of costly maintenance or false alarms.
