Rapidfire Wireless Fire Alarm System Base Unit

The Rapidfire Base units is the basis of any Rapidfire system. This base unit features and integral sounder and flashing beacon, along with a call point.  The call point can be used to manually activate the system in the event of a fire being discovered. The base unit is capable of communicating with upto 10 external wireless Rapidfire devices and will activate in the event of one of the detectors or call points being put into a fire state.

Rapidfire Wireless Fire Alarm System Smoke Detectors

The Rapidfire system features wireless smoke detectors with integral sounders that communicate directly to the Rapidfire Base Unit. These sensors are an optical type which uses modern smoke detection techniques to sample the atmosphere for signs of smoke particles. On sensing smoke in the environment the detector will send a message to the base unit to activate the fire alarm system.  This will then activate all of the other devices connected to the system.

Rapidfire Wireless Fire Alarm System Call Points

The call points for the Rapidfire system would normally be positioned next to final exits from the building or landing areas where there is a change of level. These break glass units use wireless communication methods like the smoke detectors and allow occupants of the building to manually activate the fire alarm system in the event of a fire emergency. These devices are entirely battery powered and require no external cabling to connect them.

Rapidfire Wireless Fire Alarm System Interface

The Rapidfire Wireless Fire Alarm System range features an interface unit which allows the connection of the Rapidfire system to an external fire alarm system. This means that the Rapidfire system can be linked to much larger systems, which may be a requirement depending on the site in which it is to be installed.
