Fire Detection/Alarm Systems

We offers an extensive range of fire alarm systems ranging from simple manual fire alarm systems through to complex and integrated systems employing the latest technology for larger buildings. Our design team are able to tailor a solution to meet your specific needs.

There are two generic types of fire alarm system in use, these are the traditional conventional alarm systems and the newer more advanced analogue addressable alarm systems. The two technologies are explained below:

Conventional Systems
Conventional systems are essentially simple switches that are either "on" or "off". They cannot distinguish between a real fire and the various non-fire phenomena that can trigger an alarm such as tobacco smoke, dust and steam. With conventional systems the control panel is only able to indicate the zone or circuit that an activated (or faulty) detector is on, they can not identify the individual device. Conventional systems are generally the most cost effective option for smaller buildings.

Analogue Addressable Systems
Analogue addressable systems have constant two-way communication between the control panel and the detectors in the field. Each detection device on an analogue addressable system has its own unique address within the system and the control panel is able to identify each device individually in the case of a fire or a fault The increased intelligence associated with analogue addressable systems allows for them to have greater sensitivity to fire with greater immunity to false alarms.

Our experienced team are able to assist you with the engineering, design, installation, maintenance and testing of Fire Detection / Alarm Systems.
