Because we know that in a fire emergency, every second counts.
Working together, Detection and Suppression are instrumental to the safety of life and property in a fire condition. For suppression, sprinklers are undeniably the most effective way of extinguishing a fire. However, since sprinkler heads operate only when the ceiling temperature reaches a specific fixed temperature, they respond to a fire condition that is well established. A properly applied, rate-of-rise heat detector will respond to a rate of temperature increase of 8.4° C degrees per minute or greater. With the ability to detect temperature increases, the rate-of-rise type detector will often initiate a fire alarm warning precious minutes before the sprinkler system will initiate a signal.
In UL laboratory tests, the rate-of-rise operation of the THERMOFLEX™ detectors is activated such that they are granted inter-detector spacing of 21 meters, or 70 feet. This is compared to the operation of a 165° F sprinkler, providing the head is within 3 meters (10 feet) of the heat source.
The simplicity of the THERMOFLEX™ design utilizes a set of contacts, the most common being normally open, that are installed directly onto a fire alarm initiating circuit; there are no electronic circuits, and no factory installed proprietary addressable modules. In short, the THERMOFLEX™ detector is compatible with virtually every fire alarm control panel on the market. Should the detector need to be addressable, a module can be field-installed into the back box.
There are many attributes of the THERMOFLEX™ detector that set it apart from the competition.
We are proud to offer a variety of THERMOFLEX™ models, each designed uniquely for a variety of applications.
