Fire Alarm System – Addressable and Conventional

Robust fire alarm systems and devices are essential to the protection of people, property and business continuity in buildings. Early detection of a fire risk can prevent catastrophic damage. The risks associated with failure – from loss of life to irreparable reputational damage, make the selection of a fire system a vitally important process.

An addressable fire alarm system is made up of a series of fire detectors and devices that are connected back to a central control panel.

With addressable systems, each device has an address or location, enabling the exact detector that was triggered to be quickly identified. This makes addressable alarm systems ideal for large buildings, particularly commercial premises spread over a wide area.

False alarms cause disruption and can be costly, so it’s in any business’s interests to minimise their impact and reduce the likeliness of them occurring in the first place.

These systems provide sophisticated fire protection, so therefore they do tend to be more expensive than conventional alarms overall. However if having a reliable method of alerting you to danger, that cuts down false alarms and allows for smooth evacuation is critical to your business, then it’s a worthwhile investment.
