Aspirating systems provide the earliest warning of a fire, they can detect fires at a very early stage, often before visible smouldering takes place, before an open fire occurs and before intense smoke develops.
Early detection and warning of a fire is vital to mission critical and high-risk applications such as
- Data Centres
- Telephone Exchange’s
- IT/Communication Suites
Such areas typically have an increased fire risk due to high power requirement and density of equipment.
However air sampling systems are also well suited to harsh environments because the detection units can be situated away from the protected area and any harmful contaminants.
This detection principle is also highly stable because both moisture and dust can be removed, preventing false alarms, therefore they suit a number of different applications such as;
- Power plants
- waste disposal plants
- Cold rooms.
Why choose an aspirating system?
- Where maintenance is difficult g lift shafts, atriums
- Other smoke detection methods are inappropriate due to harsh environments
- Where aesthetics matters.
