The Requirements for installing a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a manufacturing facility may vary dependent upon the nature of the business and size of building(s). A manual system usually satisfies the requirements of local legislation. This system is often combined with additional fire detection, usually at the request of the insurers. Factory units can vary enormously in size and process, with some processes being fully automated. Height is also a factor when planning fire detection, and therefore factory units can present many different challenges to the designer. Alternatives to the standard point detection systems are sometimes the answer with smoke beams, and aspirating systems providing an alternative for a sensitive yet stable fire detection solution.
The MZX fire detection and alarm offers a wide range of systems that either connect directly or interface to the addressable digital loop, offering a broad spectrum of solutions to meet these challenges.
