FAAST LT™

FLEXIBILITY FOR CHALLENGING APPLICATIONS

FAAST LT™ delivers a reliable and flexible, solution for applications where standard detection methods are inefficient or prone to failure. Designed with the installer and end-user in mind, the device serves a wide variety of
EN54-20 Class C applications where maintenance is difficult, other smoke detection methods are inappropriate due to harsh environments or areas where aesthetics matters.

IR laser optics

FAAST LT™ combines proven aspiration detection technologies and advanced design features to deliver reliable and flexible smoke detection for challenging applications.

  • Devices incorporate a high sensitivity infrared laser chamber
  • Achieves broad coverage in Class C applications (up to 2000mand over) and medium Class B applications (up to 600m2)
  • Technology distinguishes dust from smoke particles

Airflow and filtration 

FAAST LT™ uses two stage ultrasonic airflow monitoring at the inlets and at the optical chamber to detect and inform if there are any unforeseen changes within the pipe network.

  • Ensures sufficient airflow enters the device before and after filtration
  • Delivers accurate, continuous monitoring of airflow in challenging environmental conditions
  • Detects issues such as clogged sample holes or pipe tampering

Protected electronics

FAAST LT™ includes unique design features that protect critical components from human and environmental factors.

  • Devices incorporate protected electronics and fully independent chambers
  • Allows easy access for maintenance and commissioning
  • Devices are IP65 rated

Device options

  • Single channel - for small to medium size applications
  • Dual channel - for large coverage areas
  • Double knock - for applications where double fire event confirmation is required

Seamless panel integration

Intelligent FAAST LT™ devices provide seamless integration with the fire panel*.

  • Faster installation and commissioning 
  • Maintenance is simplified by providing detailed device status/fault information

Intuitive data at a glance

FAAST LT™ provides all the information required to manage your environment – making maintenance quick and easy.

  • 9-level airflow pendulum verifies that air flow meets EN54-20 requirements
  • All information can be read quickly and easily on the device’s user interface or via USB connectivity

FAAST LT™ is designed for use in a wide variety of locations and environments:

Discrete Detection

When aesthetics matter, a discrete smoke detection solution is essential. FAAST LT™ provides the earliest and most accurate smoke detection available to protect high-value items from fire. Detectors can be located in remote, easily accessible locations for routine maintenance and monitoring, whilst the pipe network is hidden.

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

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™ device can be mounted in a secure area while air sampling points are located in the protected environment. FAAST LT™ 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.

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

Challenging Environments

FAAST LT™ is a robust solution for environments that experience environmental changes caused by fluctuation in temperature. 

  • Light manufacturing facilities
  • Cold storage
  • Freezer rooms
  • Light industrial facilities

Small Scale Mission Critical

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

  • Clean rooms
  • IT facilities
