New Products for Fire and Life Safety

03/03/2005



Intelligent sensing technology delivers rapid, intelligent response to incipient fire signatures, while substantially reducing nuisance alarms. By integrating sensing and control technologies, systems offer stability and early warning capability. Technology includes cooperative sensing, supervisory smoke, detector sensitivity adjust, maintenance warnings and a self-optimizing pre-alarm.

Ceiling-mounted notification appliances include multi-candela strobes, audible/visual appliances, chimes and chime strobes, and speaker and speaker strobes. ADA restrictions on ceiling strobes have been eliminated, and new performance-based NFPA codes have opened the door to a wide range of new products. The maker also provides a tool that will calculate the appropriate candela for an application based on NFPA performance codes.

Beam Smoke Detectors are designed to protect difficult open spaces with high ceilings. Single-ended, reflected-type detectors feature a four-wire design and are said to be easier to install than dual-ended projected beam detectors because alignment is accomplished via an optical sight and a built-in, two-digit signal strength meter. Available with an integral sensitivity test module, these detectors provide 16- to 328-ft. protection coverage in a broad operating temperature range (-22 here .


Fire code inspections application is designed to simplify building inspections for fire marshals and fire departments. Featuring compatibility with pocket PC devices, the software is designed to assist U.S. fire departments that are required to conduct thousands of fire code and fire equipment inspections at local buildings and restaurants in accordance with regulatory agencies such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
