Aspirating Fire & Smoke Detection Systems

Aspirating smoke detectors operate by drawing air in through a network of pipes with holes strategically placed within them to allow air to be drawn through the pipe network. The pipes are connected to an aspirating device which houses a smoke detector that samples the air drawn through the pipe network for smoke particles.

Suitable applications for Aspirating Systems are:

Data or Comms Rooms – where very early detection of smoke is required to indicate potential problems with critical data servers.

High Level Warehouses – where warehouse heights make standard smoke detectors inoperable or maintenance of those detectors is not practical.

Cold Stores – where standard smoke detection would corrode or give false alarms due to water ingress.

Waste Sites – where dust particles would set off standard detectors or dirt may make them inoperable.

Private Houses – where discreet smoke detection is required.

When one of our engineers visits your premises to service your fire alarm system, they will check that all the elements are working effectively, test sound levels and keep an eye out for signs of wear and tear that indicate some form of repair or replacement of parts might be needed.

How disruptive it will be to install one of our aspirating fire and smoke detection systems will depend on the layout of your premises, where detectors need to go and a number of other factors.
