Fire Alarm Systems Ireland

Fire protection is a vital aspect of every security system and is a prerequisite to
obtaining a Fire Certificate for any new commercial building. Reliability and speed of response are the two most important attributes of every fire alarm system.
Pioneer Security only installs fire systems that comply with the national standard for Fire Alarm Systems I.S. 3218 2009.
The fire alarm can be monitored thus allow it to call the fire brigade to be alerted in the event of a fire. Annual servicing of fire alarm requires four maintenance calls per year. All the functions of the fire alarm are tested at each service and the entire system tested at least once a year.

We provide fire alarm systems in Dublin and throughout Ireland

How Fire alarm systems work

Smoke Detectors

Optical smoke Detectors:

In some optical smoke detectors use a light beam which when blocked by smoke activate the alarm In others it is triggered by light scatter caused by the smoke. These are slightly less sensitive.

Ionisation Smoke Detectors Detectors:

Ionization detectors have an ionization chamber and a source of ionizing radiation, this ionises the air in the detector. When smoke enters the ionization chamber, the smoke particles neutralise the ionised air and triggers the alarm. These detectors are very sensitive and when choosing a detector the building environment most be taken into consideration.

Heat detectors

Rate of rise heat Detectors.

Rate-of-Rise (ROR) heat detectors operate by detecting a rapid rise in temperature of 6.7° to 8.3°C increase per minute, irrespective of the starting temperature. When this rate is exceeded the alarm is activated..

Fixed heat detectors

This is the most common type of heat detector. Fixed temperature detectors operate when the heat sensitive eutectic alloy reaches the eutectic point changing state from a solid to a liquid. The most common fixed temperature point for electrically connected heat detectors is 58°C. These detectors are often used in boiler rooms.

Break Glass units

If someone in your building sees a fire before it has reached a smoke detector or heat detector, they need to be able to let everyone in the building know immediately. Manual call points or "break glasses" enable them to signal the emergency simply by pressing the glass.

Fire Beams

Reflected beam smoke detectors consist of a transceiver (a transmitter/receiver) unit that projects, monitors, and receives a beam reflected across the protected area. The detector works on the principle of light obscuration.

Fire Doors

Magnetic Smoke Door Holders: Wall or floor mounted solenoids or electromagnets controlled by a fire alarm system or detection component that magnetically secures spring-loaded self-closing smoke tight doors in the open position. Designed to de-magnetise and allow automatic closure of the door on command from the fire control.

Fire Alarm Control Panels:

Fie control panels are the nerve centre of the fire alarm system. They are designed give an audible warning in the event of a fire detection device been activated. They can communicate with fire brigade if required utilising a digital communicator.
