Fire Detection and Alarms (FIP)

Detection and alerts are integral safety measures

The basis for all safety in emergency situations is that the earlier you know something is wrong, the quicker safety processes can be implemented. Fire detection and alarms are integral active fire systems and must be considered, regardless of the building, venue or event.

Monitored systems alert emergency services through an Alarm Signalling device, whilst local alarms (non-monitored) alert the occupants only. Any FES-installed systems can be trusted as testing for these systems is required to meet Australian Standards. With a wide range of devices available, FES can help you design, install and commission the correct system for your needs.

Alarms represent the first step in emergency response scenarios. Make sure your alarm system is the right fit.

Taking safety precautions starts with good detection and alerts. The best evacuation plan in the world doesn’t mean much if you don’t know it’s time to implement it. FES not only have over 100 years of fire safety technicians but also employ 16 dedicated Alarm and Detection technicians to ensure the right system is installed.

Whether you need basic smoke or thermal alarms, networked intercom points or control systems for smoke distribution our team are across the available products and ready to help.

Smoke/Thermal Alarms

Standard issue alarms detect smoke particles in the air or notable changes in air temperature indicating a fire. Some models also detect both smoke particles and heat temperature. A standard smoke/thermal alarm is usually the first point of call for any fire safety outfitting.

Warden Intercom Points (WIPs)

For larger buildings or system you made need a single, or multiple, WIP(s). As a central point to gain rapid data on emerging situations they are integral both to building staff and attending emergency services. The intercom system allows rapid custom communication to speakers throughout the broadcast system.

Smoke Control Systems

Where there's fire there's smoke and in the event of smoke buildup it's important to be able to vent or distribute smoke out of the building interior. Smoke is damaging if inhaled, causes irritation of skin and eyes and obscures visibility. Smoke control systems help mediate and lessen these negative outcomes.

Interface Testing

For larger, or more complex, safety designs there may be multiple systems all communicating with each other at once. It's essential that the central interface points of these systems are operating at peak levels and should be regularly tested.
