Argus Fire Protection offers an extensive range of fire alarm systems ranging from simple manual fire alarm systems through to complex and integrated systems employing the latest technology for larger buildings. Our Design team are able to tailor a solution to meet your specific needs.
There are two generic types of fire alarm system in use, these are the traditional conventional alarm systems and the newer more advanced analogue addressable alarm systems. The two technologies are explained below:
Conventional systems are essentially simple switches that are either “on” or “off”.
of a Fire Alarm
The key components of the fire alarm system are the control panel, detectors and the alerting devices.
Analogue addressable systems have constant two-way communication between the control panel and the detectors in the field.
The increased intelligence associated with analogue addressable systems allows for them to have greater sensitivity to fire with greater immunity to false alarms.

The New Zealand Building Code acceptable solution C/AS1 classifies the types of fire alarm systems as follows:
|Type 2||A manual fire alarm system only, activated by manual call points.|
|Type 3||An automatic fire alarm system activated by heat detectors and manual call points.|
|Type 4||An automatic fire alarm system activated by smoke detectors and manual call points.|
|Type 5||Variation to a Type 4 that allows smoke detectors in some fire cells to sound a local alarm only, provided that heat detectors are also installed in those fire cells.|
|Type 6||An automatic fire sprinkler system and Type 2 manual fire alarm system.|
|Type 7||An automatic fire sprinkler system and Type 4 automatic fire alarm system|
