FACP (Fire Alarm Control Panel)

The main control of a system that accepts detection device signals and sends them to the notification devices, (noise makers). This can be part of a residential house or a commercial building. For any locations that have a fire system, the system and all its components have to be used and installed per building codes.

Smoke Detector

There are two types of smoke detectors; Photoelectric, which is best described as detecting white smoke. Ionization, which is best described as detecting black smoke. Each has its own use in an environment. More often a photoelectric smoke detector will be used with a FACP. Smoke detectors can be a 'spot' type or 'beam' type. There are also smoke detectors that are made to go into the duct work of an air conditioner system.

Heat Detector

A detector whose sole purpose is to detect heat, not smoke. There are two types of detectors; fixed temperature detectors which trips and sends a signal when the temperature at the devise reaches a predetermined temperature set by the manufacturer. The rate-of-rise temperature detectors trip at a predetermined temperature or an increase of 15 degrees within one minute, whichever occurs first.

Strobe

This is one of the notification devises. It gives a visual indication to evacuate a premise without a horn or speaker attached. This is for the hearing impaired, yet where an audible is not necessary.

Commercial and Industrial Buildings

There are a lot of different criteria that might be required within different occupancies that your local Fire Inspector will inform you of. All you have to do is have an open conversation with them as to your fire concerns at your location, and he or she will help you more than you would realize.
