High Sensitivity Smoke Detection

HSSD Detection Systems are used in a wide range of applications.

HSSD Detection Systems are used in a wide range of applications as follows:

  • To minimise downtime – i.e. in computer suites and clean rooms
  • Where smoke is difficult to detect – i.e. in hangars and cold storage areas
  • High pollution environments – i.e. in power stations and mines
  • Hard to access areas – i.e. within atria and floor voids
  • Aesthetics – i.e. in feature atriums and receptions

HSSD helps to ensure that business disruption and down time are avoided by detecting smoke at the earliest possible stage. Also, the wide sensitivity of HSSD’s allows optimum alarm settings for a wide range of environments, providing active protection where other systems prove inadequate. This sensitivity range (0.005 to 20% obscuration/m) allows for the initiation of up to four different response procedures as the smoke level rises. Typical response procedures could include the activation of a pager, a general alarm, building evacuation and/or fire department notification.
