Fire Alarm

What do you need to know when designing a Fire Alarm system for your building?

Choosing a Fire Alarm system is not only about finding a place to sell a fire alarm system but adhering to legal requirements; It's also about saving time, money, reducing false alarms and effort.

Designing Your System
The need for fire detection systems in certain buildings is usually determined by the authority responsible for enforcing fire safety laws or by assessing fire risk by the owner, occupant or employer. In general, it is appropriate to install several forms of fire detection systems in almost all buildings, in addition to relatively open small buildings. This is so that each fire will be quickly detected by residents who can warn others by word of mouth or mechanical devices that can be obtained at a place that sells simple fire safety such as a hand-operated bell. It is important that the designer considers the type of Fire Alarm option available before designing the main Fire Alarm system, because not all types are suitable for the building they are designing.

Below we have provided an overview of each type of Fire Alarm system and the main differences.

Conventional Fire Alarm System
In a conventional Fire Alarm system where equipment is commonly used in a place that sells fire alarm systems, a number of call points and detectors are connected to the Fire Alarm control panel in the zone. Zones are circuits and usually one will install circuits per floor or fire compartment.
The Fire Alarm control panel has a number of zone lights. The reason for having a zone is to give a rough idea of ​​where the fire has occurred. This is important for fire brigades and of course for building management. Knowing where the fire has started is controlled by the number of zones on the control panel and the number of circuits that have been connected to the building.
The control panel is connected to a minimum of two healthier circuits, which can contain bells, electronic sounders or other devices that can be heard. Each circuit has a final end device, which is used for monitoring purposes.

Addressable System
The detection principle of the addressable system is similar to a conventional system unless the control panel can determine exactly which detector or call point has started the alarm. The detection circuit is connected as a loop with 126 devices connected to each loop.
The detector is smarter than conventional devices because of its programming and reported back to the main fire panel. This means the detector is less susceptible to false alarms and through the location panel can certainly be determined. Further addressing devices can be added such as call points, sounders and interfaces that will connect to other equipment such as fire door holders.

Wireless Fire Alarm System
The wireless Fire Alarm System is basically a Fire Alarm system that can be addressed but the need for cabling is not needed. This can mean a short installation time, but the cost of this equipment can be more than programmed options. This type of system is generally used where cables will be prohibited from being used in several types of buildings.

After you have been told about the best type of Fire Alarm system and design that suits your place of business, you must have it by buying it at a place that sells fire safety, installed and installed by qualified technicians. You must ensure that their work complies with the Standards.
