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.
Eaton, a brand that needs no introduction, is a leading manufacturer and global supplier of high quality fire systems. Built on the strong heritage of Cooper, Menvier, JSB, Nugelec and Fulleon devices, Eaton brings over four decades of expertise to the fire system design, and has amassed a global reputation for its fire safety products.
To ensure highest levels of safety, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of a fire alarm system is very important.
Sumo Enterprise Solutions, the authorized Eaton Fire Systems distributor and service provider in Kenya, ensures the highest level service at all times.
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.
Quickly determine the location of a fire, Specific actions can be programmed by the user, Reduced likelihood and better handling of false alarms, More reliability, less likely to lose connection, Lower overall cost of wiring, Ability to monitor integrity of the system, with detector health checks, Fire alarm systems that can be programmed.
One of the biggest advantages of addressable fire alarm systems is that they can be configured so that a specific action triggers a specific response. 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.
The philosophy of a conventional system revolves around dividing the building into a number of areas called zones. The detectors and call points within each zone are then wired on a dedicated separate circuit.
The Wi-Fyre Transponder has been designed to communicate with up to 30 mixed field devices such as smoke and heat detectors, manual call points, sounders and LED indicators, and input/output devices.
Intelligent addressable systems overcome the limitations of conventional systems as each fire detector or call point is electronically coded with a unique identification or 'address' which is programmed into the device during installation.
Two-wire systems are based on standard conventional system technology, but it also incorporates additional functionality to enable the callpoints, detectors and sounders for each separate zone to be wired on a single common circuit.
The Evacuator Synergy+ heat detector is the perfect addition to any wireless manual site alarm system. This Evacuator Synergy+ heat detector can wirelessly interlink with up to 250 other devices using built-in radio frequency technology.It is powered purely by batteries and requires no wiring whatsoever
The VoCALL 16 is a high specification loop driven intelligent emergency voice communication system offering sophisticated functionality along with simple end user operation. It has been designed to ensure simplicity of future expansion, a maximum of 16 outstations of various types can be controlled from one master panel.
Developed to overcome the problems of old outdated technology in beam detection, this motorised beam now means that beam detection can now be used reliably to produce cost effective solutions for protecting large open areas.
The Digital Interface Monitor Module (DiMM) is a dual zone module for monitoring up to two zones of Digital Linear Heat Detection Cable. The unit is intended to be installed between the FyreLine Digital Linear Heat Detection cable & a conventional fire alarm control panel.
High sensitivity LED Detection Chamber specially designed to cover Class C. Includes a high power output IR LED and high gain IR receiver amplifier. Single & Dual channel versions with independent channels including fan, sensor and flow monitoring
Analysis of the flame flicker-frequency for improved false alarm rejection. Dual sensing methodology enables a wide range of hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon fires to be effectively detected. Especially suitable fires that emit large amounts of smoke.
As well as the endorsement of detector manufacturers, core products are UL certified and all products support safe and efficient functional testing - compliant with industry codes and standards.
