Campus Fire Safety and Security Systems from Xtralis

College and university campuses and healthcare facilities face similar fire safety and security challenges and require the best in early threat detection to enable a safe and efficient evacuation if required. When it comes to fire detection, challenges include the costs associated with false alarms and maintenance and testing – especially in areas that are difficult to access, poor reliability in large, open spaces, and minimal aesthetic impacts. Combustible gases and chemicals in hospital and university laboratories and storage facilities further complicate fire detection. In terms of security, these institutions share the responsibilities of controlling access, preventing theft and vandalism, and securing such areas as staff offices and parking areas especially late at night.

Why Xtralis Life Safety Solutions?
  • Very early warning detection alerts life safety personnel before an incipient fire becomes a major, devastating blaze.
  • High sensitivity allows alarm thresholds to be set for the earliest possible warning of a fire even in areas of high airflow, such as ducts or large, open spaces where smoke may be diluted.
  • Multiple alarms to prompt staff attendance and help prevent unnecessary panic among students, patients and visitors – from very early warning for investigation and security management to subsequent warnings for evacuation and suppression
  • Supports integration with mass notification systems
  • Wide sensitivity range allows alarm thresholds to be programmed to reduce the cost of nuisance alarms.
  • Unobtrusive and tamper-proof sampling of the environment for excellent aesthetics
  • Flexible positioning of detectors in secure locations that are easily accessible for lowest cost of testing and maintenance
  • Advanced detector diagnostics and support for remote monitoring and configuration of life safety systems in unmanned or secured areas
  • Unique detection chamber design protects the detector optics from contamination, reducing nuisance alarms and maintaining detector sensitivity for a long operational life
