Factors to consider for fire detection system

  • The types of fire detector systems in place (infrared detectors, ultraviolet light detectors, temperature detectors, smoke detectors);

  • The area covered by the detection system;

  • The reliability of the fire detection systems (fail-to-danger faults, spurious alarms); and

  • The types of fire protection systems in place (fire proofing, water sprays, foam/filming agents, monitor guns, combustible gas monitors, foam on tanks, fire walls/barrier walls, emergency relief venting for buildings, dust explosion control).
