Conventional & Addressable Fire Alarm Systems

We offer a range of Fire Alarm Systems to meet your requirements. However, there is a distinct difference between Conventional and Addressable Systems. With a Conventional System, if a connected device detects signs of a fire within your premises, such as smoke or heat, it will send a signal to the control panel and set off the alarm but it does pinpoint which device has been triggered. So, for example, the panel will show you which 'zone' of your premises the fire has been detected. Zone 1 could be set up as the ground floor, zone 2 could be set up as the first floor, etc.

Addressable Systems not only indicate the general area of a fault or fire but also give a precise location at the control panel such as "bedroom 2 first floor FIRE". This means that reaction times in the event of a fault or fire situation are greatly increased. Pre alarm warnings can also be given to allow time to investigate before a full alarm is reached.

In some instances, we would recommend that you upgrade from a Conventional to an Addressable System. For free advice or a free survey, contact us.

Aspirating Systems

In certain environments, early detection of fire is vital as it could have devastating consequences for a business. We design and install Aspirating Smoke Detection systems, such as FAAST (Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology™). FAAST is a new generation of smoke detectors from Honeywell, that use advanced technologies and software to deliver the earliest and most accurate method of smoke detection, which can detect fires at very early stage, often before visible smouldering takes place, or before an open fire and intense smoke develops. The FAAST device range is designed to protect people and assets in even the most challenging environments where standard detection methods fail or are prone to false alarms, or in areas which may not previously have been protected.
