Aspirating smoke detectors operate by drawing air in through a network of pipes with holes strategically placed within them to allow air to be drawn through the pipe network. The pipes are connected to an aspirating device which houses a smoke detector that samples the air drawn through the pipe network for smoke particles.
Suitable applications for Aspirating Systems are:
Data or Comms Rooms – where very early detection of smoke is required to indicate potential problems with critical data servers.
High Level Warehouses – where warehouse heights make standard smoke detectors inoperable or maintenance of those detectors is not practical.
Cold Stores – where standard smoke detection would corrode or give false alarms due to water ingress.
Waste Sites – where dust particles would set off standard detectors or dirt may make them inoperable.
Private Houses – where discreet smoke detection is required.
