New QuickAlert notification appliances bring latest warning capabilities to Simplex fire alarm systems.

August '99 Fire & Safety

Simplex has introduced QuickAlert, a new family of fire alarm notification appliances that provides exceptional performance, faster and more cost-effective installations, lower current draw, stylish good looks and complete compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

In bringing its new line of audible/visual notification appliances to the fire alarm industry, Simplex has been guided by expert advice offered by leading architects, engineers and contractors. "This new product line addresses all of the issues that representatives of those professions have raised in our own focus groups and within the industry," says John Haynes, Director of Fire Alarm Systems Marketing. "QuickAlert reduces the cost of labour and materials, conserves power, delivers outstanding functionality and offers a clean new aesthetic look."

Two-wire synchronisation

Well-researched industry studies show that the kind of cost-effective installation that QuickAlert can provide - using its two-wire SmartSynch synchronisation capabilities and other labour-cutting features - will save contractors money on new construction as well as on retrofit applications.

Under the Americans with Disability Act, virtually all fire detection and alarm systems are required to have advanced notification appliances such as those Simplex is now offering in its QuickAlert product line. The family of QuickAlert notification appliances, available in both red and white, includes:

q QuickAlert horn: Creates a multi-frequency sound output that provides an audible warning of a fire alarm.

q QuickAlert strobe: Creates a high-intensity flash.

q QuickAlert horn/strobe: Includes all the functional capabilities of a horn and a strobe.
