Electronic Fire Detection

Installation and maintenance of electronic fire detection systems can ONLY be done by an accredited SAQCC-Fire D&GS Registered Technician.

More and more insurance companies are insisting that fire detection systems are installed in large buildings. These send a signal which releases the necessary fire extinguishing medium and sounds the alarm.

Two types of Fire Detection Systems:

Addressable Systems
Consists of a series of fire detectors and devices connected to a main control panel.  Each device has a location so when a fire starts the detector that is triggered will enable the source of the fire to be quickly identified. Suited to:  Commercial or large buildings where the premises is spread over a wide area.

Conventional Systems
This system differentiates between zones and in the event of a fire will advise you of the fire source in a particular zone. Suited to: Smaller buildings where zones can be easily identified.
