Three FFE Fireray 5000 auto-aligning optical beam smoke detectors have been specified for installation in Oil Spill Response’s Southampton-based oil dispersant warehouse.

Developed to cover wide areas, beam smoke detectors are often specified when traditional point-type detectors are deemed impractical and inappropriate.

The systems offer widespread detection, making them particularly suitable for installation in warehouses and interiors with high ceilings: FFE’s Fireray beam smoke detectors have been fitted in a number of airports, hotels, shopping malls and exhibition centres.

Installing beam smoke detectors

Oil Spill Response contracted Forward Control to install several Fireray 5000 detectors in its Southampton-based warehouse.

Motorised and reflective, the system comprises an infrared transmitter and receiver in the same unit.

It operates by projecting a thin beam, which can span over 100m, to a prism, which relays it back to the receiver for close analysis.

Each system controller accommodates two pairs of fire and fault relays: one per detector.

FFE’s Fireray 5000 beam smoke detectors were deemed ideal for the factory.
