Aspirating Smoke Detectors

Aspirating Smoke Detectors overview

Where sources of fire are hard to detect Aspirating Smoke Detectors can limit the risks and calculates them with systematic means. If smoke becomes very thin delays in alarming can result, which can lead to fatal consequences.

With Aspirating Smoke Detectors one can counter this situation effectively. Air samples are constantly taken in the monitored areas with Aspirating Smoke Detectors. By means of a high performance suction, they are fed via a pipe network to a detector chamber and checked there continuously. If smoke particles are recorded, the alarm (depending on the security concept) is activated or the extinguishing process is triggered immediately.
