The appropriate choice of a fire protection system must be made according to what needs to be protected (people/goods), type of building, response time, reliability, economic cost of the installation as well as future maintenance of the premises.
Depending on their technology, fire protection systems can detect fire through the elements which are part of it (smoke, flame, gases, temperature or radiation). The choice of one system over another depends on the criteria mentioned before, allowing for detection from its earliest stage to its most critical. Thus, quick intervention enables an efficient fire extinction which will also minimize losses.
Punctual smoke detectors: traditional detection method whose use extends to small and low height areas in order to have an efficient response.
Smoke detectors via aspiration: early stage fire detection with high reliability. It is intended for use in vast areas with high ceilings, extreme weather conditions and special buildings where esthetics is predominant. It can be also used in areas where a quick evacuation needs to be carried out.
Flame detectors: industrial sector applications for fire with flame, working under extreme weather conditions: Highly reliable and efficient.
Lineal detectors: fire detection system based upon the use of a beam of light projected through the protected area. To be used in open areas where the technology allows for discriminating between smoke particles and dust as well as other mobile objects.
Extinction systems are aimed to control and extinguish fire through the appropriate extinction agent.
Moreover, there are certain delicate installations with some critical rooms in which it is necessary to extinguish the fire through total flood. Arce Clima is certified to carry out Door Fan Tests.
