Fire alarm system is designed to detect the unwanted presence of fire by monitoring environmental changes associated with combustion, Phoenix Armour offers stand-alone and integrated, conventional and addressable fire alarm and life safety solutions that minimize your risk, help prevent property loss and ensure a safer environment for your people.
Our Fire and Life Safety Solutions are advanced networked applications with a modular architecture, designed to adapt to your changing needs. Our versatile solutions allow the use of a common network and are scalable to virtually any size facility and system configuration whether you oversee the safety and protection of different types building and applications from a single PC, or monitor a large, globally-integrated network for commercial, residential or government facilities.
There are many types of fire alarm systems each suited to different building types and applications. A Fire Alarm System can vary dramatically in both price and complexity, from a single panel with a detector and sounder in a small commercial property to an addressable Fire Alarm System in a multi-occupancy building.
This component, the hub of the system, monitors inputs and system integrity, controls outputs and relays information.
Commonly the non-switched 120 or 240 Volt Alternating Current source supplied from a commercial power utility. In non-residential applications, a branch circuit is dedicated to the fire alarm system and its constituents. "Dedicated branch circuits" should not be confused with "Individual branch circuits" which supply energy to a single appliance.
This component uses energy supplied from the fire alarm system or other stored energy source, to inform the proximate persons of the need to take action, usually to evacuate. This is done by means of a flashing light, strobe light, electromechanical horn, "beeper horn", chime, bell, speaker, combination of these devices. The System Sensor Spectralert Advance Horn makes a beeping sound and electromechanical sound together.
This component acts as an input to the fire alarm control unit and are either manually or automatically actuated. Examples would be devices pull stations, heat detectors, or smoke detectors. Heat and smoke detectors have different categories of both kind. Some categories are beam, photoelectrical, aspiration, and duct.
This interface allows the fire alarm system to control aspects of the built environment and to prepare the building for fire, and to control the spread of smoke fumes and fire by influencing air movement, lighting, process control, human transport and exit.
Break glass stations, Buttons and manual fire alarm activation, are constructed to be readily located (near the exits), identified, and operated.
