ESP showcases its extensive fire protection package

ESP says its extensive fire protection product range offers a solution to suit any size of project. The range is divided into two categories. The first category – MAGfire four-wire and the MAGDUO two-wire fire alarm systems – is aimed at small to medium contractors, offering them a highly flexible and adaptable system that will save them time and money on the installation process. The second category – MAGfire addressable systems – is suitable for large commercial premises and more complex networked systems.

Fire alarm systems are divided into two main groupings; ‘conventional’ fire alarm systems and analogue addressable ‘intelligent’ systems – with each type best suited to different kinds of premises.

Conventional, or four-wire, fire alarm systems have been traditionally used in smaller properties such as shops and restaurants. They work by dividing the building into a number of detection zones, with the detectors and call points within each zone hardwired on a dedicated two-core cable to the control panel. There may be multiple detectors in a single zone.

Addressable or ‘intelligent’ fire alarm systems are designed for large commercial premises and more complex networked systems. They offer increased flexibility, intelligence, speed of identification and scope of control. Different types of initiating devices are wired in one or more single loops around the premises, requiring less cabling than conventional systems, with each detector or call point having its unique address.

Two-wire fire alarm systems are based on standard conventional system technology which allows all devices to be wired on the same set of two-core zone cables back to the control panel – enabling it to use a single circuit per zone for detection and to power the sounders. This advanced technology can reduce both installation and material costs.

Design and commissioning services

ESP offers a dedicated fire design service for contractors and is available to any size of business, from local electricians to national contracting companies. The aim is to provide expertise in choosing the right products and solutions to create a scheme that meets all the requirements of the project in question as well as the relevant standards. The company also offers a fire commissioning service designed to ensure that all installed ESP systems operate correctly and are fully compliant with the latest BS5839-1 regulations.

Contractors can now take advantage of a full fire systems package from ESP, which gives them access to a design service, a vast choice of products, including the latest two-wire systems, the commissioning service, plus technical support from a team of qualified and experienced operators.
