Fire Alarm Panel: What Fire Alarm Panel Can Do?
The choice of fire alarm panel depends on the building structure, the purpose and use of the building and current legislation. In new or altered buildings the enforcement body is the local building control, and the relevant guidance is explained in section new or altered buildings.
All Fire Alarm panels essentially operate on the same principle.
If a detector detects smoke or heat or someone operates a break glass unit (manual breakpoint), then alarm sounders operate to warn others in the building that there may be a fire and to evacuate.
It may also incorporate remote signalling equipment which would alert the fire team via a central station.
Fire Alarm Panel can be broken down into four categories:
- Analogue Addressable
- Addressable Wireless systems
- Conventional Fire Alarm System
There are plenty of fire alarm panel brands that you should see if you wish to install one or upgrade your existing fire alarm panel.
