Considering the whole life cycle of a fire detection system

Considering the whole life cycle of a fire detection system

Fire detection systems are vital to keeping your people and premises safe. When selecting a manufacturer for fire detection systems, consultants and building owners should consider different aspects to find the most appropriate solution to their needs and building requirements.

This does not only include the feature set and usability of the system, but also looks at the whole life cycle of a building and fire detection system to deliver cost savings along with sustainability.

Since our resources on earth are limited, FireClass as a manufacturer understand that it’s not only key to protect lives and buildings, but to treat our environment responsibly. They develop products that help save resources and that support your ecological goals when designing your fire detection system.

How early detection and false alarm management enable you to save costs from day one

One key quality of a fire detection system is early and suitable detection. This is crucial as it allows more time for the fire brigade to arrive, or for trained staff to extinguish the fire. It also provides adequate time for safe evacuation and, even more importantly, to reduce the impact on damage and losses incurred by late or failed detection. To achieve early detection you must have the most suitable detector.

Types of detection

Throughout the stages of a fire, different elements of the fire are detectable. For example, at the early incipient stage of a smouldering fire, Carbon Monoxide (CO) may be detected before
visible smoke. It´s therefore important to consider all elements when selecting your fire detector in a performance specification.

Whole-life cost considerations at the performance specification stage can help return substantial operational savings

- Software from start to finish
- Lower power consumption
- Installation savings
- Maintenance made easy
- More than 10 years of operation

At Johnson Controls, they place great emphasis on educating and training industry professionals, including fire consultants, engineers and facilities managers, about the implications of industry codes and standards. They offer a comprehensive program of Continued Professional Development (CPD), design support services, specification documentation, and Building Information Modelling (BIM) as well as Consultant and Application Guides and White Papers.
