• Ionisation Type Smoke Detectors
• Thermal (Heat) Detectors
• Multi Criteria Detectors
Smoke detectors such as smoke alarms respond more rapidly when compared to thermal detectors and are better suited to large open spaces, as smoke does not dissipate as rapidly as heat.
There are two (2) main types of smoke detectors, being “photo electric type” which operates on light, is superior in responding to slow smouldering fires, and are not over sensitive towards cooking nuisance alarms, whilst “ionisation type” which operates on combustion particles, is effective in detecting burning flame fires and are not over sensitive towards nuisance alarms generated from bathroom steam.
However, thermal (heat) detectors are designed to cause alarm when heat from a fire causes a significant change in temperature and are best suited to smaller confined spaces such as floor and ceiling voids and are also used within areas such as kitchens and other similar areas where the use of the area is likely to result in smoke alarms causing spurious alarms. Whilst not commonly used, multi criteria detectors activate on either smoke and/or heat and are used for specialized applications.

• Building Occupant Warning Systems.
Sound Systems & Intercom Systems for Emergency Purposes (AKA EWIS) and Building Occupant Warning Systems are used to warn occupants of the presence of fire or smoke within a building and assist in the prompt evacuation of a building. These systems are interconnected to either fire detection or fire suppression systems to activate automatically.
