Fire alarm systems are a strongly recommended commodity – we believe no premises should be without the safety a fire alarm offers. Listed below are the different types of alarm systems available. Please feel free to discuss your needs with one of our trained specialist advisers.
Conventional Fire Alarm
A traditional alarm system, able to detect fire or the effects of fire, providing one or more of the following:
- notifies the occupants
- notifies persons in the surrounding area
- summons the fire service
- controls all the fire alarm components in a building
Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm
In addition to all of the above features this type of alarm is extremely useful in larger premises as each unit can give its exact location via a text read out, meaning fires can be quickly located.
Radio Alarm Systems
Radio fire alarm systems are simple to install. There is no need for wiring between detection devices and very little disruption of the premises during installation.
Aspirated System – A type of smoke detector which gives a very quick response. It detects smoke particles suspended in the air by identifying the light scattered from the particles in a sampling chamber.
