Which Heat Detector is Right for your Business?
In an emergency, a few seconds could save lives. In the case of a fire, heat detectors play a crucial role in protecting workers and your site to ensure that those few seconds count when they are needed the most.
Here at Bull, our ambition is to ensure sites have all the correct fire equipment on site. We have a range of heat detectors, all of which have been designed to protect workers, and ensure people are made aware of the emergency so they can act swiftly.
Wireless Heat Detector
This wireless detector is an intelligent device and can be configured to different settings such as fixed temperature, rate of rise, or high temperature.
This unit can be used in any application including construction sites in Temporary Accommodation Units (TAU’s) which require a fully compliant fire alarm system to be fitted.
With a 5-year battery life, the Wireless Heat Detector comes with a standard radio base but can be supplied with a sounder or sounder/ beacon base depending on the requirement.
This battery-powered stand-alone Smoke Detector is particularly sensitive at detecting slowly developing fires. This will guarantee workers are notified of the fire before it has spread rapidly, ensuring they can exit the building safely.
The Smoke Detector can also provide timely detection of fast, flaming fires that consume combustible materials rapidly and spread quickly.
Cygnus Heat Detector
The Cygnus system, manufactured by Bull, is a major innovation in wireless emergency fire, first aid, and intruder alarms for construction sites.
The Cygnus Heat Detector is an integral part of the system, providing essential detection in and out of working hours on all types of construction projects.
Tested to the highest measures, the Cygnus Heat Detector works in the radio mesh, and will help transmit and receive all other radio messages from other site alarms to help site wide radio performance.
With the new GSM functionality from the GSM control panel, site managers can ensure alerts are directly reported to a third-party monitoring station so that your site is protected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Radio Link Heat Detector
The Radio Link Heat Detector is an alternative solution to the Cygnus heat detectors.
These economical heat detectors are not linked into the Cygnus radio mesh and are not addressable into the system. They are linked into the Cygnus system by way of the CYGDI detector interface which can control up to 11 smoke, heat or CO detectors which are coded together to avoid any interference.
