Smoke alarms and fire alarms operate 24 hours a day and are therefore faster and more reliable at detecting a fire than someone who happens to be in the neighbourhood. It is important that fire is detected rapidly in order to limit harm or worse to people and to protect equipment as much as possible.
What do we do?
Smoke detectors (optical)
Fire detectors (heat detection - thermovelocimetric - flame detection)
Multi-functional devices (decrease the chances of false alarms)
- Aspiration devices or air sampling
Linear heat cables
Intelligent cameras that can distinguish between dust and smoke
Smoke and fire detectors are subject to heavy contamination, which can cause false alarms or poor performance, so don’t forget to replace them regularly! In standard installations, they should be replaced every 5 years. The degree of contamination may be read on the latest fire detection centres.
