Fire detection and suppression systems are used in commercial and industrial buildings to detect and extinguish fires.
Emergency call systems are designated terminals used to call or transmit a need for attention. Emergency call systems may also be known as a panic alarms, man down alarm systems, duress systems, or a personal emergency response systems.
Fire alarm control panels (FACPs) transmit signals between fire detection devices and alarms, suppression systems, and monitoring centers. This device reduces the potential for fatalities and property loss from structure fires.
Fire sprinkler heads deliver a high-pressure flow of water or dry chemicals to a fire. They are usually are heat-activated and part of a larger fire prevention and safety system.
Fire suppression systems are used to suppress flames in the event of a fire. There are several types of suppression systems including wet sprinkler systems, dry sprinkler systems, deluge sprinkler systems and dry chemical suppression systems These systems work in conjunction with heat sensors, smoke detectors and fire alarm systems to improve and increase public safety.
Flame detectors monitor and analyze incoming radiation at selected wavelengths.
Heat detectors are fire detection devices that sense heat produced by combustion. Heat detectors can trigger an alarm when they detect rapid temperature rise or reach a preset temperature.
Hydrants are valve devices that are used to dispense large volumes of liquid.
Smoke detectors are designed to sense the products of combustion. Common types include ionization chambers and photoelectric devices.
