Within seconds a small flame can escalate into a major fire, causing damage to property and loss of life. Heat and gases emitted can be more threatening than fire itself. Despite this, fire protection is often the most neglected element of risk management.
Fire detection systems provide constant monitoring and, therefore, early warning, to minimise the losses and liabilities associated with fire. This prevents damage to property and products, loss of life, financial loss, consequential loss of profit, loss of productivity and insurance repercussions. A selection of application specific detectors can be utilised on either system. Detectors include optical smoke detectors, heat detectors, linear detectors, beam detectors, gas detectors, aspirating air sampling detectors and many more. Fire detection systems are widely used in offices, hotels, warehouses, factories and mines, to name a few.
