Fire Alarm Solutions
An automatic fire alarm system is designed to detect the unwanted presence of fire by monitoring environmental changes associated with combustion. In general, a fire alarm system is classified as either automatically actuated, manually actuated, or both. Automatic fire alarm systems are intended to notify the building occupants to evacuate in the event of a fire or other emergency, report the event to an off-premises location in order to summon emergency services, and to prepare the structure and associated systems to control the spread of fire and smoke.
Aspiration Detection System
In an aspirated detection system, air is sampled from the protected area through a network of pipes or tubes, actively drawing the air towards the detection system using a high pressure aspirator fan.
There are 2 main considerations for choosing an aspirating system.
1. The first is that the sampling pipework used in aspirating systems is more resilient to harsh environments than a standard point smoke detector.
2. The second is that aspirating systems can often give a much higher sensitivity than a standard smoke detector.
Because of the range of requirements, GLT Exports offer a range of equipment to suit all budgets.
Aspirating Unit & standard smoke detector
This is an ideal solution for systems that require the ruggedness, security and accessibility of point detectors within a sampling system.
Aspirating unit & Laser smoke detector
As an intermediate system, this solution offers sensitivity far higher than a standard smoke detector, but at a fraction of the cost of a full dedicated aspirating system.
Dedicated aspiration system
This high-sensitivity smoke detector is an instrument quality nephelometer collecting scattered laser light from smoke particles over a full 360 degree sweep. The resultant sensitivity is an astonishing 0.001% obscuration/metre some 2000 times more sensitive than conventional smoke detectors.
