Conventional Fire Alarm
This type of system is suited for small business premises such as small offices, nurseries and shops. In conventional systems, detectors are hard wired into a circuit or zone. They signal fire or fault conditions to the control panel by changing from a high to low impedance. The panel detects this impedance change by current monitoring and identifies the zone. When an activation Is triggered the fire alarm will sound to alert that a full evacuation is needed. These types of alarms are a cheap option but can be more expensive to install. The disadvantage of this type of system is the exact location of a fire can’t be determined.
Addressable Fire Alarm System
This type of system is suitable for larger business premises such as warehouses, hotels and large factories or depots. This type of system enables the exact location of a fire to be determined. Each zone is connected to the alarm system wit its own address. When a fire is detected the address will be displayed on the panel. An adressable system causes less disruptions to business because there are less false alarms, the sounders can be set up in the specific zones reducing the need to evacuate the whole work force.
Our fire alarm systems include some of the following features:
