Intelligent Fire Detection and Suppression Systems

Fire detection and suppression systems are used to detect smoke and fire, suppress flames, and notify building occupants and emergency personnel about dangerous conditions. Products include emergency call systems, fire alarm control panels (FACP), fire sprinkler heads, fire suppression systems, flame detectors, head detectors, and smoke detectors..

Fire detection and suppression systems can detect, suppress, or both detect and suppress fire and flames. Flame detectors, heat detectors, and smoke detectors are sensor-based devices that are used with fire alarms or larger fire suppression systems. Flame detectors use optical sensors to analyse incoming ultraviolet (UV) and/or infrared (IR) radiation at selected wavelengths. Heat detectors sense heat produced by combustion and can trigger an alarm when a rapid temperature rise occurs, or a specified temperature is reached. Smoke detectors are designed to sense the products of combustion. There are two basic types of devices: ionization chamber smoke detectors and photoelectric smoke detectors.

We design complete fire suppression systems to suppress flames in the event of a fire. Suppliers of fire detection and suppression systems may also provide fire alarm control panels (FACP) and emergency call systems. FACPs receive information from fire detectors while emergency call systems transmit an alarm to emergency services personnel such as building security or a fire department.

Emergency Call Systems
Emergency call systems are designated terminals used to call or transmit a need for attention. Emergency call systems may also be known as a panic alarms, man down alarm systems, duress systems, or a personal emergency response systems. 

Fire Alarm Control Panels
Fire alarm control panels (FACP) are systems which receive information from input devices (smoke detectors, heat detectors, etc.), process the information, and trigger an output device such as an audio or visual alarm.

Automated Suppression systems
Protect your Critical Operations with Fire Suppression systems.
By installing a gaseous fire suppression system you can starve a fire of oxygen or heat, therefore eliminating the three requirements for a fire to burn; oxygen, fuel and heat.
Our Suppression systems will detect a fire usually by smoke detectors and trigger a series of outputs which release a gas agent into the protected area. This gas will then suffocate the fire of oxygen or heat and therefore extinguish the fire. We can provide the following systems:

FM200 based
FM2OO™ is a compressed gas which is stored as a liquid and dispensed into the hazard areas as a clear, odourless and electrically non-conductive vapour that does not obscure vision. It leaves no residue and, at the correct design concentration, is suitable for the protection of occupied areas.

Inert Gas Systems
Inert gas systems work by reducing the concentration of oxygen in the atmosphere to a level which will not sustain combustion (below 14%). A relatively large volume of the gas therefore needs to be released into the atmosphere to achieve this objective. Unlike Halon and halocarbons, inert gases are stored as high pressure gases and hence require a large number of high pressure storage cylinders - with implications for space and weight.

Inert gases such as nitrogen can be used alone but inert gas mixtures (typically blends of nitrogen and argon) are also available. As these systems use natural gases which are obtained from natural sources they have zero ozone depletion potential.

Water Mist
Water mist or fine water spray systems are relatively new technology for fire fighting. Their method of extinguishing is cooling plus some localised oxygen reduction. Research has shown that fine water sprays do not conduct electricity in the same way as a solid stream of water, so sprays can be considered for use on live electrical equipment. Fine sprays can also be used on fire of flammable liquids, but should not be used on substances that will react violently with water such as reactive metals.

Water mist systems cause no environmental damage and are safe to use in occupied areas. There is likely to be some water damage, although this is considerably less than that associated with a sprinkler system.
