Zone Alarms, Fire Alarm Panel

Fire alarm control panels start with a simple one zone panel for use in smaller premises, such a shop factory unit and surgeries.

Larger, upgradable control panels are available in 2 to 14 zone versions. These control panels would be used typically in shops, schools, factories and houses with multiple occupation. All fire panels are compliant with British standard 5839 part 4, and host a variety of features.

Even larger control panels based on the same specification as its smaller counter parts can be used for systems that require up to 32-zone expansion. These control panels are very versatile and are ideal for up-grades and retro-installations.

What is the idea behind single zone alarm and multiple zone alarm fire alarm systems?

A single zone fire alarm will usually be installed in a house or small building where it is not so important to localise the source of the fire as it is for a big building.

A multiple zone fire alarm will split a larger building into zones with a separate fire emergency indicator for each zone. More sophisticated alarms will localise the fire even more precisely down to a room within a zone for example and with english language text description of fire location

Multiple zone alarms cover a wide range from 2 to 4 zone, right up to 32 zone and bigger.

The same description applies to burglar alarms.
