Everyone knows that precaution is always better than cure and here same is applied for fire security system also. Fire is a very dangerous issue and can occur due to many reasons such as short circuit, smoking or others. It is unpredictable but when it occurs, it spreads very rapidly that no one gets enough time to react. That’s why it is always good to take the essential safety measures in order to keep your house as well as you commercial property. For this, you can get your property equipped with fire alarm systems and fire security equipments. Many properties in London are equipped with advanced systems.
These fire detectors not only detect the fire but also raise the alarm when it detects smoke. This fire system raises the alarm very quickly so that everyone in the building gets more than sufficient time to evacuate. Fire alarms in London are a basic necessity and due to this there are almost negligible numbers of causalities reported due to fire.
Different types of fire alarm systems
Flame detectors – this alarm system detects the flame and raises the alarm as soon as smoke enters into the detector. This detector also detects the fire at the initial stage. This alarm can prove to be good in any household or commercial building. This alarm system is widely used in the manufacturing industries, refineries such as oil and gas. These flame detectors also come in three different types. These are
- Optical detector – in this optical sensors are used for the detection of smoke and flame.
- UV detectors – these detector work very rapidly. They can detect any smoke, fire or explosion in just four milliseconds.
- IR detectors – this can also work fast as it raises the alarm in just 4-5 seconds.
Photoelectric alarms- this alarm uses beam collimating system, photoelectric sensor and light source. When smoke emerges, it gets through optical chamber and also passes through the path of light beam. This allows the light to get scattered in such a way that it gets involved in the smoke and this light activates the sensor of alarm and it gets raised then.
