VESTIRO have thought about the benefits of fire alarm systems which help to save lives, protect people and can stop costly business assets from being destroyed.
Fire Alarm that can be activated to warn everyone in the building that there is a fire, eliminate or minimize the risk of them being destroyed in the event of a fire?
It also ensure the safety of everyone in the premises, as well as safe guard against the occurrence of potential property loss in the event of a fire.
The latest fire alarm systems are extremely intelligent, they can:
⦁ Automatically call the emergency services and key contacts to minimize the time it takes for the fire brigade to attend site
⦁ Tell the fire brigade exactly where the fire is so they can get to it as soon as possible.
⦁ Minimize pesky false alarms caused by old fire alarm detectors
⦁ And, in the unlikely event of a fault, they can also tell you exactly where the problem is?
It is the responsibility of the owner or the employer, to make sure that the system is tested regularly and that it is fit for purpose and VESTIRO is also there to do all that regularities.
LIST OF THE FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS:
⦁ SMOKE DETECTOR: The smoke detector identifies the presence of smoke using optical sensing upon activation
⦁ SOUNDER: The sounder plays the role of releasing a sharp sound like a siren to notify every person about an intending fire outbreak
⦁ FLASHER: A flasher is put to work by blinking, to notify whenever there is an instant fire outbreak
⦁ MANUAL CALL POINT: Manual Call Points are designed for the purpose of raising an alarm manually once verification of a fire exists, by operating the push button or breaking the glass to notify others of an emergency.
⦁ CONTROL PANEL: The detection devices detect the presence of smoke or particles of combustion and then alert the fire alarm control panel about a problem; the fire alarm control panel then decides what action to take. It comprises of:-
⦁ ADDRESSABLE SYSTEM
⦁ CONVENTIONAL SYSTEM
⦁ An Addressable fire alarm system is made up of a series of fire detectors and devices that are connected back to a central control panel.
With addressable systems, each device has an address or location, enabling the exact detector that was triggered to be quickly identified.
This makes addressable alarm systems ideal for large buildings, particularly commercial premises spread over a wide area.
Advantages of addressable fire alarms
⦁ Quickly determine the location of a fire by taking you to the exact location of the fire outbreak on like Conventional type.
⦁ Specific actions can be programmed by the user.
⦁ Reduced likelihood and better handling of false alarms.
⦁ A Conventional fire alarm control panel employs one or more circuits, connected to initiating devices wired in parallel. These sensors are devised to dramatically decrease the circuit resistance when the environmental influence on any sensor exceeds a predetermined threshold. In a conventional fire alarm system, the information density is limited to the number of such circuits used.
To facilitate location and control of fire within a building, the structure is subdivided into definite areas or zones. Floors of a multistory building are one type of zone boundary.
Advantages of Convectional fire alarms
⦁ More reliability, less likely to lose connection.
⦁ Lower overall cost of wiring.
⦁ Ability to monitor integrity of the system, with detector health checks.
Not sure of right fire alarm system to install? Vestiro is here to serve you better, and we’ll be happy to help! We can organize a fully qualified engineer to visit your site and evaluate your need and install the right systems at the strategic points.
There are four basic types of panels: Conventional Panels, Addressable Panels, Coded Panels, and Multiplex Systems. However, the two predominant panels that are commonly in use today are Addressable and Conventional. Vestiro specializes in the design and installation of these two systems.
Conventional Control System: This is usually recommended in smaller facilities that zone monitoring is not complex.
Addressable Control System: This system is currently the most advanced. Zones are easily monitored. That is the reason the system is recommended for larger and more complex facilities.
