Aspirating Fire & Smoke Detection Systems

Aspirating detection systems are the fastest way of picking up the presence of smoke and fire in a building. By regularly testing the air in a room for microscopic smoke particles, an aspirating smoke detector can not only detect a possible fire much quicker than standard alternatives, but it can even detect one before any signs are visible to the human eye.

That makes them the best choice in locations where time can be absolutely critical, such as data rooms or areas where highly flammable materials are stored.

They are also ideal for use in locations with very high ceilings, where standard detectors may be too slow to react, and in environments such as cold stores and waste units, where the air conditions are less conducive for traditional alternatives.

And because they are built-in and out of sight, aspirating systems are also the perfect choice for rooms where a more discreet detection solution is required, including in modern offices, galleries and heritage buildings.

Aspirating Detection FAQs

What is aspirating detection?

Aspirating detection is a fast and reliable method of quickly picking up on the presence of smoke and/or fire in a room. It works by continually testing samples of air in the room for microscopic smoke particles. This means it is likely to detect a fire before it is even visible to the human eye and provides a much earlier warning than a traditional sensor located on the ceiling would be able to manage.
