Standalone Fire Alarms
Standalone fire alarms help you meet the fire safety requirements of many locations where a full, wired fire alarm system is not needed or even feasible.
Standalone fire alarms do not need an external power source, nor do they need a control panel to allow them to function. They are ideal for temporary structures, small offices and storage spaces as well as locations such as building sites where the requirements of the fire alarm system may fluctuate. As they have an integrated battery pack they can usually be surface-mounted in virtually any location.
There are many reasons for needing standalone fire alarms, these range from requiring a reliable fire alarm system while using a temporary structure to wanting to give personnel using a fire alarm exempt site a trusted method of raising an alarm.
Self-contained fire alarms are solitary devices that incorporate a sounder with a method of raising an alarm itself. Usually this consists of a manual call point or push button with an integrated sounder. Some self-contained alarms also incorporate an additional beacon to further demonstrate the ongoing emergency situation.
Wireless Site Alarms
Typical applications include temporary structures such as marquees or building sites where the requirement for a fire system is constantly changing. Wireless site alarms communicate with each other using radio signals that allow a master sounder/flasher to sound the alarm when a linked device is triggered. The devices in the wireless network can be installed in practically any location that's within range of the sounder/flasher wireless base unit.
