QualiFire Air Sampling Smoke Detection System Very Early and Reliable Smoke Detection for all Environments

Description

Fire protection starts by detecting smoke in its earliest stages providing a crucial time advantage in the response strategy. QualiFire air sampling smoke detection (ASD) technology is more sensitive than traditional fire detection, yet stable enough to be applied in even the harshest environments. QualiFire is the result of a strategic partnership combining German engineering and advanced technology to develop a solution proven in thousands of installations worldwide.

Why very early smoke detection?

A fire can cause significant operational downtime, loss of data, destruction of assets, and potentially business disruption as well as possible injury or loss of life. The risks are simply too great. The appropriate fire protection solution is essential to life safety, business continuity and loss prevention.

Detecting fires at the earliest possible stage is the most effective preventive action. Unlike spot-type smoke detectors, which respond to a much later stage of fire development, QualiFire air sampling systems offer quicker – and vitally needed – response times to emergencies.

State-of-the-art fire detection

QualiFire continually draws air through strategically placed sample holes in the pipes and into an optical chamber where it is analysed for smoke particles. Those particles are separated from dust, dirt and other foreign air materials so only the smoke hazard is identified. The smoke detection capabilities of QualiFire mean a high level of false alarm immunity as well as speed and accuracy in detecting true fire incidents.

Why QualiFire is the right choice for early warning fire detection

Early fire detection is vital to maintaining business continuity and protecting high-risk applications. The QualiFire family provides an appropriate, cost-effective solution for virtually any ASD application. QualiFire air sampling smoke detection systems are noted for their cost-effective modular design, providing substantial benefits to end-users, designers, integrators and installers. QualiFire is designed to save time required for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance. Over the service life of the system, these benefits result in clear lower cost of ownership over other technologies.
