Below is a brief description of some of the components that make up a Fire Alarm System

Fire Alarm Master Control Panel

Usually located in the entrance lobby or reception of the building, they come in various sizes and use different technologies to control the system e.g. conventional zoned panel or the more advanced analogue addressable. They are primarily designed to give you information e.g. state of the system, any faults etc., location or zone in the event of the fire and various test and reset facilities.

Smoke Detectors

These devices will automatically detect smoke in the area of the building they are installed to protect. We use Optical, Ionisation and Beam Detectors and select the correct detector for the location..

Heat Detectors

These detectors are installed in areas too hostile for smoke detectors to be used e.g. Kitchens, Boiler Houses and Laundries. Heat detectors come in a variety of temperature trigger settings and can be tailored to suit the environment requiring detection.

Break Glass Call Points

These are wall mounted units, finished in red, which trigger an alarm when the front glass panel is pushed and broken. These are located next to external fire exit doors, landing areas etc.

Fire Alarm Sounders

They can be traditional bells or electronic sounders (90/105 dB), normally red in colour and wall mounted; installed throughout the building so as to give a clear audible warning in the event of the fire alarm activating.

Fire Alarm Linked To Fire Brigade

The fire alarm system can be linked to the Fire Brigade via our Alarm Receiving Centre.
This can be via BT RedCARE, Digital Communication or Dual Com.
