Aspirating Fire Alarm Systems

Aspirating smoke detectors operate by drawing air in through a network of pipes with holes strategically placed within them to allow air to be drawn through the pipe network. The pipes are connected to an aspirating device which houses a high sensitive smoke detector that samples the air drawn through the pipe network for smoke particles.

Aspirating detectors have  many advantages over ceiling mounted point detectors, such as;

  • Higher sensitivity
  • Lower installation and maintenance costs
  • The detectors can be situated away from harsh environments
  • The air can be filtered or heated before reaching the detectors
  • Easier to maintain in areas such as lift shafts, ceiling voids or under floor boards
  • Ideal for use where aesthetics are important or where the application must be vandal proof
  • Better performance where there

Suitable applications for Aspirating Systems are:

  • Data or Comms Rooms – where very early detection of smoke is required to indicate potential problems with critical data servers.
  • High Level Warehouses – where warehouse heights make standard smoke detectors inoperable or maintenance of those detectors is not practical.
  • Cold Stores – where standard smoke detection would corrode or give false alarms due to water ingress.
  • Waste Sites – where dust particles would set off standard detectors or dirt may make them inoperable.
  • Private Houses – where discreet smoke detection is required.
