Fires can destroy businesses, not just because of the property loss, but also because of the amount of downtime involved with repairs. A lengthy business disruption can cost a business greatly. A company’s highly-sensitive equipment in computer and data rooms, clean rooms, and laboratories can be easily damaged in a fire and not easily replaced. Precious artefacts in a museum can be lost in these events. This can have a long-term effect on a business.
Sometimes, very early detection is needed to minimize or prevent sometimes irreversible damage. How can that be achieved? Aspiration detection is the answer. Aspiration Smoke Detection systems offer businesses a highly effective means of preventing major fire damage by detecting a potential fire before it even ignites. Aspirating smoke detection system- SecuriRAS ASD (UL listed/FM and VdS approved) from Securiton are among the most precise and most reliable early warning systems against fires. Securiton offers a complete range of models that make the lightning-fast detection of fires both scalable and cost-effective for any monitoring area.
Securiton offers SecuriRAS ASD series for smaller premises (ASD 531), small to medium shaped enterprises (ASD 532) and for large scale applications (ASD 535). Be it frosty condition or hot condition, these robust aspirating smoke detectors can be deployed at temperatures ranging between –30 °C and +60 °C – retaining their full functional efficiency at all times.
The extensive range of accessories includes various dust filters, water-retaining boxes and other aids. With its efficient lint filter it suppresses even the finest dust particles otherwise likely to hamper the detection process. Thanks to its optimised aerodynamic measuring chamber, the detector is also immune to dust deposits. It cleans its tubes itself using automatic blow-out devices.
In terms of smoke concentration the alarm sensitivity of the HD (high dynamic) smoke sensor SSD 535 ranges from 0.002%/m to 10%/m. The ASD 535 is equipped with a high-performance fan which is whisper quiet. It can be integrated with Fire Alarm Control Panel to activate Clean Agent Suppression systems in case of fire detection. Up to 400 metres of sampling pipe can be connected up to each smoke sensor, providing a maximum total of 120 sampling points and capable of monitoring surface areas of up to 5000 m2. Moreover multiple ASD can be networked together to create a Mesh network of the High precision smoke detection system.
