Installations of Advanced Fire Detection Systems including:
- Multipoint detectors
The multipoint detector has many advantages over a normal conventional detector such as having seven operational modes. These modes allow you to simply flick a switch to change an optical smoke detector to a fixed heat detector, or change a fixed heat detector to an ionisation smoke detector. You can also have a mixture of any two technologies, giving you a substantial amount of flexibility. If, for example, a cooker triggers a false alarm from a smoke detector, then the usual solution is to exchange the smoke detector for a heat detector. With a multipoint detector you can simply change the setting and make the smoke detector a heat detector which saves a considerable amount of time and money on having a new detector or system installed.
- Remote relay outputs
The twin wire system also supports remote input and output interface units; this is particularly useful if a building interface such as a lift control shutdown is required but is a long distance from the main panel. Simply, by installing a remote input and output unit on the detection circuit, you can ensure the building interface is picked up with the minimum amount of wiring rather than wiring from the main control panel.
- Advanced Control
Control and operation of the main control panel is usually by a key or code which restricts access to the panel to the specified users only. A range of options are available such as: one man walk test (useful for weekly testing), disabling of sounders or detection zones.
- Twin wire plus systems
Advanced protection systems can significantly reduce the rate of false alarms which can save the time and cost associated with evacuating a building for no reason. When we plan the installation of your twin wire plus system, we will designate the rooms in the building into either 'dwelling' (hotel rooms, student bedrooms, individual offices within a large building etc.) or 'communal' zones (kitchens, bars, dining rooms etc.). This means that the control panel can be programmed so that it takes into account the different usage of these areas and a variable time alarm confirmation period can be entered. If a detector is triggered in a dwelling zone, only the alarm in that area will sound. As the control panel has to be programmed to detect if this specific alarm is still being triggered every few minutes, the system will be able to tell if the fire is genuine or if it's a false alarm generated by cooking, for example. If it is a false alarm, the detector will stop signalling and the control panel will automatically reset the system. If during the timed checks the detector is still signalling a fire, it will then activate all the alarms within the building so everyone can be evacuated safely.
