What Is Linear Heat Detection? Is It Right for Your Application?

PRESENTED BY John Whaling, Vice President of sales, and  Brenton Harris, Director of sales, protectowire firesystems

Linear Heat Detection has been around for over 70 years but is still relatively unknown to many in the Fire Protection Industry. In this webinar, we will delve into the construction and operating principles of digital linear heat, along with a few of the applications where it’s most commonly used. Provide guidelines on how fire protection engineers can identify a correct installation using NFPA 72 as well as FM and UL guidelines. A new technology will also be introduced, Confirmed Temperature Initiation (CTI) which confirms thermal activation of the detector before an alarm is initiated. This webinar will expand your knowledge of linear heat and where it can be applied. If you have ever wanted to learn more about digital linear heat this is a can’t miss opportunity.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand digital linear heat construction and operation
  2. Discern recommended LHD installation and testing practices
  3. Identify potential applications

Advanced Smoke Detection Innovations – Addressing Common Challenges

PRESENTED BY Steven Joseph, Director of Market Development, Xtralis, a Honeywell Company

In today’s environment organizations must cope with many challenges ranging from increased operational costs, reliability of services, insurance costs, avoidance of incidents, increased frequency of accident, to regulatory compliance.

A fire event, even small in nature, can have detrimental consequences threatening life safety and continuity of business. Understanding that fires can and will happen, an essential element of fire protection is of course automatic fire detection. That is, the ability to detect a fire and alert personnel before consequential impact to occupants, assets, and function of the organization occurs. Smoke detection is often regarded as the first line of defense and is generally responsible for initiation of other sequences intended to control the spread of fire.

Over the decades there has been significant advancements in smoke detection technologies with innovations continually evolving to meet both the articulated and unarticulated needs of the market. Today some of our toughest challenges with respect to operating performance and application can now be answered through the use of these new innovations.

This presentation takes a close look at various aspects of traditional spot-type and aspirated-type technologies mutually exclusive in nature but when combined form an advanced smoke detection solution having attributes that solves challenges across many types of environments. One such technology advancement now available on the market sets out to overcome challenges with respect to:

  1. Supervision – providing true end to end supervision for assured detection performance
  2. Maintenance – being automatic assuring uninterrupted detection performance
  3. Installation – being flexible, simple and affordable
  4. Retrofit – being flexible and compatible across all building system platforms
  5. Accessibility – without difficulty and without interrupting operations
  6. Cost – being lower across life of installation
  7. Intelligence – providing more information about the physical environment so that personnel can make informed decisions

Throughout the presentation we will explore these various attributes through a series of case studies showing real applications with real results.
