Fire Alarms

FTL Secure Solutions, in partnership with BBC Fire & Security (www.bbcfire.co.uk) are specialists in the design, installation, commissioning, maintenance and integration of fixed and portable fire protection and detection systems and equipment. These include fire detection and alarm systems, wireless fire alarms, aspirating systems, gaseous fire suppression systems, sprinklers, fire extinguishers, hose reels, wet and dry risers, hydrants, voice alarms and public address systems. 

FIRE DETECTION AND ALARM SYSTEMS

While some people may have the impression that fire alarm and detection systems often generate false alarms and are a general nuisance, they are of vital importance to safety and protection from fire.

Such systems form an important part of, for example, an organisation’s wider fire plan, along with fire control planning, personnel training and communication to reduce the risk of fire to its staff and property.

Today’s fire detection and alarm systems are highly sophisticated and are able to reliably detect fires and contact the emergency services, avoiding false alarms and allowing fire to be located accurately so precious time is not wasted.
Different components make up a fire detection and alarm system: control and indicating equipment, manual call points and fire detection devices. These fire detection devices fall into three categories: smoke, heat and flame (or a combination).

OPEN AND CLOSED PROTOCOL SYSTEMS

The term protocol refers to the way in which components of a system talk to each other.

Manufacturers of equipment using closed protocols claim that all of their components work harmoniously with each other, as they are all designed and made by the same company. As a result, the owner of a fire protection system with a closed protocol is dependent on just one supplier for all spare parts, servicing, modification and upgrade of the system, since no other manufacturer’s products will be compatible.

Firecrest Services Ltd advocate the use of open protocol systems so that the owner is not tied to one particular supplier, and has the freedom to choose from the most suitable parts and suppliers.
