Fire Detection Systems

Fire Alarm Control Panels

A Fire alarm control panel (FACP) is the controlling component of a fire alarm system. The panel receives information from devices designed to detect and report fires, monitors their operational integrity and provides for automatic control of equipment, and transmission of information necessary to prepare the facility for fire based on a predetermined sequence. The panel may also supply electrical energy to operate any associated initiating device, notification appliance, control, transmitter or relay. There are Two types of panels: Conventional panels and Addressable panels.Designed for maximum flexibility the control panel is supported by a complete suite of peripherals and software tools. Information on the location offires, faults and system status can easily be displayed or printed in multiple locations. Integration to Voice Evacuation Systems, paging systems and third party control systems is supported through a range of peripheral interface units.

Smoke Detectors

A Smoke detector is a device that senses smoke, typically as an indicator of fire. Commercial security devices issue a signal to a fire alarm control panel as part of a fire alarm system, while household smoke detectors, generally issue a local audible or visual alarm from the detector itself.Commercial smoke detectors are either conventional or addressable, and are connected to security alarm or fire alarm systems controlled by fire alarm control panels (FACP).The detector may be set for different sensitivity settings appropriate to the environment of itslocation.

Heat Detectors

A Heat detector is a fire alarm device designed to respond when the convected thermal energy of a fire increases the temperature of a heat sensitive element. The thermal mass and conductivity of the element regulate the rate flow of heat into the element. All heat detectors have this thermal lag. Heat detectors have two main classifications of operation, "rate-of-rise" and "fixed temperature". The heat detector is used to help in the reduction of damaged property. It is triggered when temperature increases..

Beam Detectors

An optical Beam detector is a device that uses a projected beam of light to detect smoke across large areas, typically as an indicator of fire. Thedetector consists of a transmitter/receiver unit and a reflector. Smoke enteringthe area between the transmitter/receiver and reflector causes a reduction insignal. When the obscuration reaches alarm thresholds (chosen at the transmitter/receiver unit), the detector generates an alarm signal.Due to the inherent capabilities of projected type beam detectors they are ofteninstalled in locations where spot-type detection is impractical. Projected typebeam smoke detectors are ideally suited for environmental conditions thatmight include high ceilings, dusty and dirty environments, or environmentsthat experience temperature extremes. Often these conditions present specialproblems for the installation of spot-type detectors and even greater problemsfor their proper maintenance. Due to the inherent flexibility of mounting locationsand large coverage area of projected type beam detectors often the conditionsabove can be addressed or minimized.Optical beam smoke detectors are often installed in warehouses as a cost effective means of protecting large open spaces.

Linear Heat Detectors

Linear Heat Detection (LHD) also known as Linear Detection Wire or Linear Heat Detection Sensor(LHS) Cable is a very commonly used method of fire detection. It can detect a fire anywhere along the length of the cable, and can be of lengths in excess of akilometer.The Linear Heat Sensing Cable is designed to provide early detection of fire conditions and overheating incircumstances where other forms of detection wouldnot be viable, either due to inability to sustain theenvironmental requirements or through prohibitivecosts with wide variety of applications like Open areaprotection, Cable Trays, Rack Storage, Belt Conveyors,Power Distribution Apparatus, Cooling Towers,Escalators, Freezer Warehouses and many otherharsh environments.

Manual Call Points

The MI-MCP Series Manual Call Points are designed to provide amanual alarm interface to fire alarm control panel.Installation efficiency, flexibility and compliance with the lateststandards.The manual call point is rectangular or circular, made of aluminum or MS and painted with fire red. The box has front glassand gasket to make it completely vermin and dust proof, along with hammer and chain.The glass front cover has a write up “ BREAK GLASS IN CASE OF FIRE”.


The hooteris an audible signalling device which goes on in an event of fire. It is available in wall mount and ceiling mount models. The hooter is generally mounted at 2.4 m above the floor level.The hooter is actuated by control panel. These are provided in corridors, exit routes, lobbies, staircase landings and other places such that the alarm is heard distinctly above all the ambient sound prevailing in the area.

Hooter cum Flashers

Visual signaling appliances are used in high-noise environments, in areas occupied by hearing-impaired individuals, or in areas where audible devices may not be desired.
