A roundup of fire systems and technologies.
Multi-gas detection devices and controllers monitor parking structures, mechanical-type rooms and occupied living spaces. These detectors may be installed to activate ventilation fans when common vehicle emissions such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide reach hazardous levels. Controlled fan run-time and temperature stabilization lead to large reductions in maintenance and energy costs. The series also includes detectors designed to monitor for deadly refrigerants and explosive gases. Rooms containing boilers, chillers, electrical systems and fuel storage have a need for specialized gas monitoring devices.

Audible/visible notification systems include indoor and outdoor wall strobes. The strobes have exclusive plug-in designs with universal mounting plates for easy installation. The series containas wall-mount horns, strobes, horn/strobes, chimes, chime strobes and ceiling mount strobes. Other features include 11 field-selectable candelas on wall and ceiling products, a higher sound output on horns and horn/strobes and a rotary switch for horn tone selection.

Network, panel and peripheral devices create integrated solutions for fire safety applications. These include a navigational tool for firefighters and emergency responders that features a PC-based touchscreen. Emergency responders can gather information to correctly pinpoint the source of the fire and the rate at which it is spreading, reducing property loss and saving lives. The series also includes a graphical workstation that integrates fire alarm systems, security, card access and CCTV into a single point of control. The digital voice command audio evacuation, paging and firefighter’s telephone system uses eight channels of audio to deliver live, high-quality emergency paging while simultaneously broadcasting multiple messages throughout an entire facility or selected areas.
