Detection & Suppression

For decades, fire suppression systems have been critical for protecting buildings and various other structures, as well as individuals and/or assets contained inside them.

Detection & Suppression

What is a Fire Detection System?

Fire detection systems serve a simple purpose to spot fires early enough to allow for safe evacuation of personnel and, if possible, for a quick response to put the fire out. With the right fire detection system, the human and equipment costs due to damage can be significantly reduced. Electronic detection systems most commonly work with alarms to immediately notify those in the vicinity or connected to a monitoring system. This provides warning of a fire to building occupants and can provide information to emergency responders on the location of the fire, speeding the process to control the fire.

What is a Fire Suppression System?

The sole objective of a fire suppression system is to extinguish or suppress a fire as quickly as possible. A fire suppression system is built to extinguish fires through the application of a fire suppression agent like water, foam, or chemical agents. These systems are commonly designed with components to detect factors like extreme heat, smoke, or fire to trigger a response. Electronic fire detection is attached to an alarm system that will alert you when the fire has been detected and initiate steps to further suppress the fire. In contrast, non-electronic systems will activate and deploy the fire suppression agent without notification. The majority of fire suppression systems will automatically release the suppression agent to extinguish the fire after the detection and/or alert. Alternatively, some fire suppression systems require someone to manually release a suppressant
