Think FAAST - Think System Sensor

Applications

FAAST has one focus. To protect people and assets in a diverse array of applications and industries, including mission critical facilities and harsh and challenging environments, from the faintest traces of smoke.

  • Mission Critical

    Downtime is a problem for any site, but for mission critical applications, every second lost, every transaction missed, any data or equipment destroyed can mean huge losses.

    The FAAST™ X range alerts facility managers hours, even days before the first indication of system trouble – helping them keep their mission critical facilities up and running 24/7 and preventing unnecessary activation of suppression systems.

    Application examples:

    • Clean rooms
    • Datacentres
    • IT Facilities
    • Archiving facilities
  • Harsh Environments

    Non-combustion related particles such as dust and humidity are the main causes of false alarms and device failure in extreme environments with high levels of contamination. The FAAST™ X and LT ranges use sophisticated multi-stage filtration techniques and advanced optics to distinguish these particles and eliminate false alarms.

    Application examples:

  • Large Open Spaces

    Applications with large and high open spaces present challenges for traditional smoke detectors, due to potential smoke stratification and varying environmental conditions. For example in open public spaces such as stadiums, airport terminals or theaters, evacuations can be difficult, therefore false alarm immunity and accurate detection is vital. In applications such as warehouses and hangars ability to eliminate false alarms and provide early smoke detection is critical in order to deliver uninterrupted operation and protect valuable stock and equipment. The FAAST™ X and LT ranges are ideal for such applications due to their high accuracy, early smoke detection and ability to eliminate nuisance alarms.

    Application examples:

    • Stadiums
    • Shopping malls
    • Warehouses
    • Atriums & hotel lobbies
    • Airports & aircraft hangars
    • Distribution centers
    • Large maintenance areas
    • Auditoriums & theatres
    • Indoor sports facilities
  • Restricted or Difficult Access

    Some fire systems must protect areas where security or easy access is an issue or there is a concern for tampering. The FAAST™ LT range can be mounted in a secure area while air sampling points are located in the protected environment. FAAST™ LT devices provides highly accurate fire detection for these areas to avoid nuisance alarms and various alert levels to enable an appropriate and informed response to any situation. For applications where very early detection is required, the FAAST™ X range provides the additional protection demanded.

    Application examples:

    • Lift shafts
    • Ducts
    • Voids
    • Custodial facilities
    • High buildings
    • Warehouses
    • High roof storage areas
  • Discreet Detection

    When aesthetics matter, a discreet smoke detection solution is essential. The FAAST™ X range provides the earliest and most accurate smoke detection available to protect high-value items from fire. For applications where discretion is more essential than early warning detection, the FAAST™ LT range is the ideal solution, featuring whisper-quiet sound performance at just 26dBA. Both FAAST™ X and LT range devices can be located in remote, easily accessible locations for routine maintenance and monitoring, whilst the pipe network is hidden.

    Application examples:

    • Historic buildings
    • Museums/galleries/high-end architecture
    • Shopping centres
    • Residential
    • Surgeries
    • Hotels
