Fire Detector


FD or fire detectors are used to signal as soon as possible the outbreak of a fire before it enters a dangerous phase, to reduce response times and the implementation of fire-fighting facilities.
The detectors can be classified according to different criteria: 
 
  • smoke detectors, which are sensitive to particles of combustion products and/or airborne pyrolysis (aerosols);
  • heat detectors, which are sensitive to temperature rises;
  • flame detectors, which are sensitive to the radiation from flames;
  • Multi-sensor detectors (smoke detectors incorporating a temperature detector helping to make decisions about fire alarms); 
  • So-called “combined” detectors, which are sensitive to both the smoke and the temperature rise or to carbon monoxide.
Excerpt from the Practical guide to fire safety
CNPP trains your teams in fire detection. 
CNPP engineers provide on-site control of your safety systems (FSS, FPCP, etc.)
Over 2,000 service certifications for installations and/or maintenance and/or audits have been issued by CNPP Cert. to companies for the services they provide including on FSS.
