Building Façade Fire Protection
Facade Detection Systems provide Safety on the outside
High-rises, schools, daycare centres, museums, asylum centres, cultural heritage – over the last years there have been many examples of fires originating in façades causing much damage. These fires are not discovered before the smoke has seeped into the building, where the detectors are located. By then it might be too late.
One of the major challenges protecting the outside of buildings is isolating the monitoring to just the facade, and not the surrounding areas. Sun, rain, and dirt are also affecting the detection. We have found a solution that works.
Facade protection with AutroFlame IR flame detector
In order to save lives and prevent damage to buildings, it is crucial that the fire is detected as early as possible and that the fire department is notified immediately. AutroFlame IR flame detector is robust and environmentally protected, making it ideal for outdoor use. The flame detector is mounted on a discreet bracket protecting the detector against the weather. Limited by the walls of the bracket, the detector field of view is 45 degrees. The mounting arm is adjustable to adapt the detector’s cone of vision according to needs, both horizontally and vertically. In this way, the flame detector is directed at the facade only, without interruption from the surrounding area. It is also protected from snow, water or other kinds of pollution that is limiting or obstructing the detector’s visibility or sensitivity.
