Air Aspirating Smoke Detection

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

2:00 pm EDT / 1:00 pm CDT / 12:00 pm MDT / 11:00 am PDT

Air Aspirating smoke detection is a key element in proper fire detection. These products allow for early warning smoke detection to assist in detecting a fire at the earliest stage possible. Using a network of tubing, a detector and housing, we use the circulation of air within the protected space to pick up small smoke particles. This type of detection works great sensitive areas along with simple hard to reach applications including:

  • Data centers
  • Clean rooms
  • Laboratories
  • Atriums
  • High pile rack storage or Cold storage environments.

During this one hour pre-recorded webinar we will provide basic information on how these systems work and their effectiveness. Some design considerations will be discussed based on the application at hand. As designers we often see these systems working directly with our fire protection preaction or clean agents systems. This will be an informative discussion to help better understand how these products are involved in the overall design of a fire protection system.
