Conventional Fire Alarm System Vs. Addressable Fire Alarm System

Do you need a fire alarm system but you’re not certain of the type of fire alarm system you need?

No worries.

Fireline Corporation is here to tell you about the differences between the conventional fire alarm system and the addressable fire alarm system.

The conventional fire alarm system is an early warning system design for small facilities.

These fire alarm systems are inexpensive but sometimes it can be challenging locating the alarms.

To put it simple, if a conventional fire alarm detects a fire, it may tell you the zone/ area of the fire but not the exact location of the fire. There’s no design where a specific fire alarm can signal exactly where the fire is occurring.

If you are ok with knowing on the zone of a fire alarm, then a conventional fire alarm will do the trick.

If you feel safer having a fire alarm system that tells you on the spot where a fire is present, you should go for an addressable fire alarm system.

The addressable fire alarm system is an early warning system designed to
locate precisely where a fire is occurring.

In fact, this fire alarm system will tell you the specific type of smoke alarm/ fire alarm sounding off, the room it’s within and the floor level.

The addressable fire alarm system is perfect for large facilities because the faster you can locate a fire the more property and lives can be saved during an emergency.

Fireline Corporation can network / integrate this fire alarm system to your overall facility security panel for the best fire safety/ fire protection.
