A fire alarm system is designed to detect the unwanted presence of fire by monitoring enviromental changes associated with combustion. Once the fire has been detected a signal will be transmitted and an audible warning will be given.
Fire Alarm Cables are a key component of the system. Fire Alarm systems can be used to notify people to evacuate in the event of a fire or other emergency, to summon emergency services, and to prepare the structure and associated systems to control the spread of fire and smoke.
A typical system consists of smoke detectors, thermal or heat detectors, fire alarm or annuciator panel, sprinkler system, and the notification of emergency response.
The system needs to be able to evacuate people, turn the sprinklers to stop or slow the spread of fire, and advise emergency responders.
These cables are built to CSA C22.2 #208 and are marked CSA FAS
