What is a Fire Detection System?

A fire detection system is designed to discover fires early in their development, allowing a higher chance for the safe evacuation of occupants. Prompt, early detection is a crucial factor in alerting emergency response personnel. Property loss can be reduced or avoided entirely through early detection, as control efforts can begin while the fire is still small.

Type of Fire Detection Systems

Heat detectors can sense the convected thermal energy from the flame, causing the increase in temperature of the heat-sensitive element in the heat detector. Once this occurs, the feature triggers an alarm which then sounds, alerting anyone within earshot of the device.

Optical detectors work using the light scatter principle. The alarm contains a pulsed infrared LED which pulses a beam of light into the sensor chamber every 10 seconds to check for smoke particles.

Photoelectric detectors are effective at detecting larger particles of smoke from slow-burning, ‘smouldering’ fires. They are highly reliable, produce few false alarms and effectively detect larger particles of smoke produced by slow-burning fires than an ionisation smoke detector.

Ionisation detectors are excellent at detecting fast-burning fires. They are susceptible to small particles of smoke produced by fast flaming fires, such as paper and wood, and will detect this type of fire before the smoke gets too thick.

Our Fire Detection System Products

Heat Detector

Heat Detector

Heat detectors detect thermal energy from flames, increasing the heat-sensitive element's temperature in the process. This triggers an alarm, alerting nearby individuals.

Stand-Alone Smoke Detector

Stand-Alone Smoke Detector

Stand-alone smoke detectors function independently, offering early warnings without reliance on a central monitoring service or larger fire alarm system.

Reflect Beam Detector

Reflect Beam Detector

Reflect beam detectors have a transmitter and receiver on opposite sides of an area. The transmitter emits a beam, reflected by a prism, to the receiver. Beam strength is analysed for smoke detection.

Aspirating Smoke Detector

Aspirating Smoke Detector

These detectors can sense smoke before it becomes visible to humans by drawing air from a network of pipes via a central detection device. Typically, aspirating smoke detectors use a fan unit to extract an air sample from the protected area through the pipe system.

Importance of Fire Detection System

It is vital to purchase the correct fire detection system to address the specific risks in your workplace and ensure fire protection. Beyond the initial purchase, regular inspections and replacements in case of fault or ageing will ensure your business is as protected as possible in case of a small blaze breaking out.

Yes, they do. Fire detectors need to be changed every 10 years. However, the detectors’ lifespan will be shortened if they are placed in a particularly dusty and dirty area. Meanwhile, battery-powered fire detectors should have their batteries replaced once a year.

It is advised that you visually inspect and test your smoke detectors at least once a month. At Palcon, we suggest that you have them professionally checked yearly.

Many false alarms result from the wrong placement of smoke detectors, for example, near cooking appliances, humid areas, or wet chemicals. Dust build-ups or low battery conditions could also trigger false alarms. We recommend consulting fire safety professionals for help if your false alarm occurrence persists.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), smoke detectors should be installed on every level of your building. In regard to a residential property, smoke detectors must be installed inside every bedroom and outside of each sleeping area, including the basement.

Ultimately, there is no such thing as having too many fire detectors on your property as long as they are properly placed. Engage a professional fire contractor to plan and install a fire detection system that caters to your fire safety needs.
