Fire Detection Systems
With years of experience in the industry and a great reputation, C&M Fire Alarms offer a range of fire detection systems; from simple conventional and wireless and radio systems to more complex networked addressable and aspiration systems.
Suitable for smaller premises, conventional detection systems are designed to offer early warnings of fire and are easy to maintain. Perfect for those on a tighter budget, our conventional fire detection systems are cost effective and quick to install.
Wireless and radio detection systems are suitable for small to medium projects and are most commonly used in listed buildings for a more aesthetic solution. These systems can be installed quickly and removed when necessary which makes them ideal as a temporary solution. Worksites, portacabins, and even marquees can benefit from the protection of a wireless and radio detection system and are often considered much more subtle on the eye than traditional fire alarm systems.
Addressable fire detection systems are the most common way to protect property against fire risk and damage and can be tailored to suit any environment; from a standard single property to a network of buildings. Ideally suited to larger buildings and high occupancy properties such as schools, hospitals, residential homes, flat/office blocks and hotels, addressable systems are highly intelligent solutions that can not only help to reduce “false alarm” rates but also cut off factors such as lifts or ovens in the case of an emergency. Addressable systems are undoubtedly the most popular and thorough method of fire detection.
Aspiration Systems are best suited to more difficult environments and are one of the most complex detection systems on the market. A central detection unit continuously draws air from the surrounding environment through small pipes; smoke is then detected via a nephlometer system which gives very early warning signs of fire. Dusty or dirty environments benefit the most from this type of detection system and it’s a highly versatile solution, particularly for large, open or very high areas within buildings.
