Detection & Controls

Protecting your people, business, assets and community against fire damage is what matters most. We work with you to understand the priorities of your business stakeholders, as well as the requirements and challenges of the spaces that need protection. Fire protection is about more than putting fire out. It is about how to integrate the best technology to ensure early detection, effective communication between technologies and the people who use it, and putting fire out quickly and efficiently with the least amount of damage and downtime. We work closely with you to understand your industry, your facilities and your functionality to align customized systems to instill peace of mind.

AEGIS 2.0 ›

The AEGIS 2.0 is a conventional panel ideal for smaller single-zone hazards. It is used for a wide range of systems and is compatible with clean agents, CO2, wet and dry chemical systems, Halon, sprinkler, deluge, pre-action, foam and foam-water systems.

AlarmLine ›

The AlarmLine Linear Heat Detector provides early detection of fire or overheating conditions. It identifies changes in temperature in localized areas or over its entire system. It is ideal for most environments and is especially suited for applications where ambient conditions prohibit the use of traditional spot-type smoke, flame or heat detectors.

Intellisite ›

IntelliSite connects organizations, communities and cities through state-of-the-art surveillance, IoT sensors and artificial intelligence. Remote monitoring and management combined with thermal cameras, artificial intelligence and cloud-based management to recognize individual elevated body temperatures ensure the safety of your people and property.

Smoke Detection ›

Smoke detection systems use devices that react to particles produced by fire. There are two principles of smoke particle analysis used in spot smoke detectors: ionization and photoelectric. Both methods work effectively to detect fire in the early stages of development. Devices are often installed in ventilation ducts. It is important to have a fire protection specialist determine the best system and location for smoke alarm systems based on your building fire-load conditions.

Common Applications:

  • Office buildings
  • Homes
  • Schools
  • Museums
  • Data Centers

Threats Reported:

  • Smoke
  • Fire

Flame Detection ›

Flame detectors are needed for facilities where risk of loss to personnel and property is high. The systems respond to radiant energy, both visible to the human eye and undetectable to the human eye. Flame detector devices are sensitive to glowing embers, coals and flames that are detectable by intensity and spectral quality. There are three types of flame detection systems: infrared, ultraviolet and infrared/ultraviolet.

Common Applications:

  • Mission-critical facilities
  • Oil and gas pipelines
  • Turbine enclosures
  • Off-shore platforms
  • Automotive manufacturing facilities
  • Aircraft hangers
  • Munitions plants
  • Nuclear facilities

Threats Reported:

  • Hot spots before they ignite
  • Smoke

Thermal Detection ›

Thermal detection systems use thermal imaging to detect hot spots before they even ignite. This technology can prevent fires from spreading and destroying life and property, especially in hazardous areas such as scrapyards, shredder facilities and flammable materials storage areas. Combining thermal imaging cameras with remote control fire suppression systems can greatly reduce the outbreak of fire.

Common Applications:

  • Telecommunication centers
  • Data centers
  • Clean rooms
  • Server rooms
  • Theaters
  • Warehouses
  • Indoor stadiums
  • Convention Centers

Threats Reported:

  • Hot spots before they ignite
  • Smoke
  • Fire

Video Detection ›

Video surveillance cameras and computer vision methods are now available in fire detection systems. With intelligent video processing techniques and special purpose infrared surveillance cameras, fire can be detected and analyzed. Detection time is often reduced because cameras do no have transport delays present in traditional detection systems. Video also provides critical information such as size of fire, rate of growth and direction of spread.

Common Applications:

  • Oil rigs
  • Oil fields
  • Mining operations
  • Forestry service
  • Industrial facilities
  • Warehouses
  • Testing facilities

Threats Reported:

  • Smokey fires
  • Flaming fires
