Fire alarm system: planning & installation

What is a fire alarm system used for?

Like many years of experience show, fires can start and spread quickly at any time and anywhere. With the help of a fire alarm system however, this danger can be recognized and eliminated at an early stage. Not only human lives can depend on rapid detection, but also the reduction of property damage caused by fire. In order for the fire protection system to be as effective as possible, the components must be adapted to the respective conditions of the protected area.

How does a fire protection system work?

The fire alarm system consists of a combination of fire alarms, fire alarm and fire extinguishing control centers, alarm devices and other actuators. All signals from the fire alarms converge in the fire alarm center, which reliably supplies the responsible authority, such as the local fire brigade, with all the necessary information. This is particularly important in order to be able to react as quickly as possible in the event of a fire. As soon as the fire alarm system detects an open fire or the occurrence of smoke, it reports a fire alarm.

The fire alarm center provides important information about the location of the fire. For this purpose, the group number and the location of the alarm fire detector are usually displayed. In addition, fire alarm technology is used in many cases to control and monitor the functioning of all fire protection systems. This can include activities such as:

  • Opening smoke ventilation systems
  • Closing fire barriers
  • Elevator control

Another important part of a fire protection system is the fire detector. Industrial fire detectors are equipped with a robust housing and mounting technology for the harshest environments. Thanks to their modular concept and state-of-the-art signal processing technology, these detectors meet individual requirements in an unusually wide range of applications.

In general, the main actions and reactions of the fire control panel can be divided into the following areas:

  • Report
  • Alert
  • Inform
  • Control

Fire alarm technology is used in almost all large trading companies and public institutions. Possible applications for a fire alarm system can be found in production and assembly halls, server rooms, halls and offices or in high level rack warehouses. The establishment of the fire alarm technology must meet the requirements and standards of the legislation.

What are the advantages of a fire alarm system?

The fire alarm technology ensures the timely detection of fire and smoke as well as the implementation of the necessary fire extinguishing measures. Fire detection technology not only contributes to improving personal protection, but can also reduce property damage caused by fire.

The fire protection system offers you the following advantages:

  • Early detection of fires – regardless of the presence of people
  • Early warning makes a significant contribution to personal protection
  • Accelerated fire fighting start
  • Insurance companies often reward the use of fire alarm technology with premium discounts
