Fires pose a significant risk to warehouses and the high value stock that they
Micropack Flame Detectors provide wide, reliable coverage making them perfect for use in warehouse and storage applications. In many applications they provide better coverage than conventional smoke detectors as they provide active coverage over a large area and are immune to thermal stratification.
The importance of fire safety in the Storage industry
Warehouses and storage facilities can present a multitude of fire hazards. They typically house a mixture of flammable materials such as cardboard boxes, chemicals, paper, wood and many other things. If warehouse fires are not detected early and extinguished, they can cause a huge amount of destruction.
Common warehouse fire detection systems include smoke, heat and flame detection technologies. Each of these technologies has strengths and limitations, therefore it is critical that they are used in the correct manner.
Smoke detection can offer an early fire warning if used correctly. If smoke detectors are installed at a great height, thermal stratification may block the smoke from reaching the sensor. This scenario can result in a failure to danger. Heat detectors are a reliable, cost effective fire detection solution, however in a large space, their response time will be slow and often too late.
Optical flame detectors provide a fast response to flaming fires, offer wide active coverage over a large area and certain units also have CCTV functionality.
Micropack Flame Detectors have been installed in many storage facilities, providing reliable, effective protection from fire.
