Types of Fire Alarm Systems
These are usually installed in small to medium size properties. While often cheaper to install, they lack many of the important features found in an addressable system. The system will indicate the location of a fire by highlighting a “zone” on the fire control panel.
These are normally found in larger developments where locating a fire could be difficult. Its purpose is to provide the exact location. It can provide the “zone” name, the device name and the exact device location.
Fire Alarm System Devices
The most important element of any Fire Alarm system. They automatically raise an alarm, allowing time for a safe evacuation.
Detectors needed for detection of different fire types – fast and flaming, slow and smouldering, etc. – differ significantly.
The most common detector types are smoke or heat detectors.
Device and system characteristics need to be considered. In some cases, combined detection will be required.
Also, addressable smoke detectors are only compatible with addressable fire system and conventional smoke detectors with conventional systems.
Manual call points, also known as fire break glasses or fire call points, allow an alarm to be raised manually. There are two types of call points. Red call points are for fire alarms while green call points are for the release of locked doors in emergencies.
Fire alarm sounders raise the alarm in the event of fire. Our range of sounders come in various sizes and output sound levels. Some combine a strobe light to warm those who may be hard of hearing and for use in loud venues.
This is the controlling component of a fire alarm system. The panel receives information from detectors, monitoring and controlling their operation. There are four basic types: coded panels, conventional panels, addressable panels, and multiplex systems.
