VESDA Aspirating Fire & Smoke Systems

VESDA aspirating smoke detectors were among the first to use air-sampling as a means of rapidly identifying the presence of a fire, and are still among the most reliable and popular choices for aspirating smoke detection in businesses across the UK.

If you’re not sure what VESDA systems are all about, then you should get a clue when you know what VESDA stands for – it’s Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus. By constantly sampling and testing the air in the room where it’s installed, VESDA can pick up on the earliest possible signs of smoke particles, before they are even visible to the human eye.
