Fire Alarm System
Fire Alarm System As Built Drawing
A fire alarm system comprises of a number of devices working together to detect and warn people through visual and audio appliances when smoke, fire, carbon monoxide or other emergencies are present.
These alarms may be activated from smoke and heat detectors, and relays can be used to control a wide range of smoke control systems which is an outcome of a blend of building mechanical systems with fire protection or life safety systems. Fire Alarms can be integrated with Fans, AHU dampers, Access Control doors, Elevators, IBMS Systems and Gas Suppression Systems.
Non-Addressable fire alarm systems use simpler technology and are suited to smaller applications where they are more cost effective than an addressable system. A non-addressable system may use fire detection zones, which are usually represented by LEDs on the control panel. Each Zone identifies a specific area of the building in order to speed up the location of a fire.
Addressable fire alarm systems, and their corresponding control panels, are more advanced than their conventional counterparts and offer a higher degree of programming flexibility and single point detection.
