Fire alarm detection and warning systems play a critical role in safeguarding buildings by providing early warning of fire incidents. These systems comprise a network of sensors, detectors, strategically placed throughout the facility to continuously monitor for signs of fire. Upon detecting a potential fire, the system triggers audible and visual alarms, alerting occupants and emergency responders to the situation. This early warning enables swift evacuation and response efforts, helping to mitigate the risks and consequences associated with fires.

We carefully assess the building layout, operations, and potential fire hazards to determine the optimal placement and configuration of detectors and sensors. Our fire alarm detection systems are compatible with a wide range of building types and industries, ensuring comprehensive protection for our clients’ premises.

ARA Fire takes pride in offering a comprehensive suite of innovative fire alarm detection solutions that are engineered to identify fires at their earliest stages, facilitating swift response measures to minimize damage, disruption, and potential harm.

Our commitment to fire safety is exemplified by the incorporation of various cutting-edge detection technologies into our systems.

Smoke Detectors: These detectors are designed to sense the presence of smoke particles in the air. They are highly effective in detecting fires that produce smoke, such as smouldering fires. When smoke is detected, these systems trigger audible and visual alarms, providing early warning to occupants and emergency responders.

Thermal Detectors: Thermal detectors are sensitive to changes in temperature and can swiftly identify a rapid rise in heat. They are particularly useful in areas where smoke detectors might produce false alarms, such as kitchens. When a dangerous increase in temperature is detected, thermal detectors activate alarms, aiding in early fire detection.

Aspirating Detectors (VESDA): Aspirating detectors employ a sophisticated sampling system to continually draw in air from the environment and analyse it for the presence of combustion byproducts or particles. This method allows for the detection of fires even before visible smoke or heat is produced, making them highly effective in critical areas where early detection is essential.

EWIS (Emergency Warning and Intercommunication Systems): EWIS systems are designed to integrate fire detection with public address and voice communication capabilities. In the event of a fire, these systems can issue clear and specific voice instructions for evacuation, ensuring occupants understand the situation and can exit safely.

OWS (Occupant Warning Systems): OWS systems are specialized solutions that provide early warning directly to building occupants via mobile apps or other communication devices. This direct communication can be vital in large or complex structures, helping occupants take immediate action during a fire emergency.

Remote Monitoring: ARA Fire collaborates closely with Fire M, a renowned leader in the fire alarm and detection industry, to deliver state-of-the-art remote fire alarm monitoring solutions.
