Addressable fire alarms are ideal for protecting large buildings from fire. IDS Security install addressable fire protection systems across England and Wales.
Here at IDS Security Systems Ltd, we have helped countless clients to protect their businesses from fire. Our expert installers frequently carry out site visits in order to evaluate each client's requirements and recommend the best fire alarm system
Often, they judge an addressable fire alarm system to be the most suitable solution, particularly if the business in question spreads its operation across a large building.
What is an addressable fire alarm system?
An addressable fire alarm system differs from a conventional system in that every device in the system (e.g. smoke detectors, call points) has its own unique 'address'. When one of the devices is activated, its address is displayed on the system's central control panel, making it much easier for the user to identify the location of the fire and tackle it before it spreads.
Benefits of addressable fire alarms
The chief advantage of an addressable fire alarm system is the ability to immediately establish where on your premises a fire has broken out. Every second counts when a fire is burning, and knowing its location straight away will help you to minimise the damage. We especially recommend installing an addressable system if your site is very large and/or has several storeys, as is it not always immediately obvious which part of a large building might be on fire.
Interestingly, one additional benefit of using an addressable system is a reduced likelihood of false alarms. Addressable devices monitor air flow in order to stop the alarm being raised unless there really is a fire; false alarms can be disruptive and costly for companies, and many of our clients have told us that they appreciate this added safeguard.
