Temporary school classrooms often pose a quandary in respect of fire safety due to the investment required for a short-term need. Bridge Fire & Security based in Uxbridge are supporting schools across London by utilising Haes’ AlarmSense control panels.

Installation is therefore faster and costs less as a result, which is why it is very appealing as a protection solution for temporary classrooms. Continue reading ‘AlarmSense Control Panels from Haes Chosen to Protect Temporary Classrooms in Schools’
FFE is bringing the latest in wide-area smoke and flame detection to the NFPA Conference and Expo. Held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre in Las Vegas between June 13-16, the NFPA is widely regarded as the premier event for fire and life safety. FEE is at booth 1153.
On display at NFPA will be the Fireray 5000 motorized, auto-aligning optical beam smoke detector, which is ideally suited to large interiors with high ceilings, enabling coverage of a large area at minimal cost.
