Fike Teams up with its Distributors to Showcase Innovative Fire Detection Solutions at the Elex Regional Shows

Cwmbran, Torfaen, United Kingdom – UK manufacturer, Fike Safety Technology (FST), is exhibiting at each of the Elex 2014 regional shows with one of its local approved distributors, to showcase its intelligent fire detection solutions. Visitors will be able to see at first hand innovative systems such as TWINFLEXpro, a 2-wire system popular with electrical contractors, electricians, facilities managers and in particular with landlords, dueTWINFLEXpro+Multipoint+Elex-PR-web to its features used in Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO).

Also on show will be FST’s new Ocelus conventional fire alarm system, together with linear heat and gas detection products. FST’s distributors can provide design, supply and commissioning support, as well as installation if required, on the full range of products.

“The first event in the series at Harrogate in March was a resounding success due to the fact that visitors to FST’s stand could access the combined knowledge and experience of both manufacturer and distributor,” said Alan Locke, FST’s Head of Sales. Elex will be visiting Exeter in April, Manchester in June, Coventry in September and Sandown in November. For further information on the Elex shows visit

The TWINFLEXpro system incorporates the Multipoint combined smoke and heat detector with built-in sounder, which allows the whole system to be easily installed using only one pair of wires per zone. As Multipoint offers 7 different modes of detection, the installation is made even simpler since one device suits all applications. Checkpoint Alarm Confirmation Technology is a feature of the system that has seen TWINFLEXpro installed extensively in applications such as Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO). This is a configurable pre-alarm that can be set on detectors in dwelling areas that allows time to investigate the cause of the alarm before building-wide evacuation is initiated. This can significantly reduce the disruption from nuisance alarms.

This versatile system has the ability to differentiate between call point and detector alarms; can accommodate a maximum of 32 devices per zone; has separate fault monitoring display for each zone; incorporates a man walk test facility and zones can be configured without the need to use resistors or capacitors. To make the TWINFLEX®pro system even more flexible, FST can also provide a special Output Unit. This can be situated anywhere on the zone circuit and is ideal for connecting to equipment such as plant shutdown controls and door release mechanisms.
