Fire protection from Technoswitch

April 2010 Fire & Safety

There is an enormous variety of fire detection and suppression products in the market today. These range from smoke, heat and flame detectors through to control panels of various sizes and capabilities down to the suppression agents themselves. The choice of product to use should always be governed by quality and valid product certification.

Advanced fire control panels

Advanced Electronics manufacture a large range of conventional and intelligent fire control panels. The Ex-3000 series, detects a fire in the same manner as a fire alarm system, but in addition to sounding alarms, it also controls the release of an extinguishing agent. This panel offers a number of unique features, including a large LCD graphical display and keypad. The control panel comes with three detection zones, time and date stamped log, advanced cause-and-effect and extensive I/O. Optional accessories include networked remote status panels, hold or abort pushbuttons and active EOL units. The EX-3000’s three-zone automatic extinguishing panel is approved to EN12094-1 (European standard for Fixed Firefighting Systems-Components for Gas Extinguishing Systems) and

EN54-parts 2 and 4.

Stat-X fire suppression

For fire suppression systems, Stat-X generators offer an environmentally friendly solution. Stat-X fixed system electrical units are electrically actuated and range in size from units containing 30 grams (covering about 0,5 cubic metres) up to 2500 grams (covering about 40 cubic metres). Upon activation, these units produce an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium based aerosol. Fire suppression is rapidly achieved through interference between the ultra-fine aerosol particulate and the flame’s free radicals – terminating propagation of the fire. The Stat-X aerosol generators are very cost effective to install and maintain – as they do not require pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation costs. Stat-X is Listed for Class A, B, C fires by UL, ULC, CSIRO, ECB and many others.
