In London alone, a fire engine is called once every 12 minutes to a false alarm, at a cost of £34 million every year. In 2011, throughout the country, there were nearly a quarter of a million false alarms. Source:
The ultimate in false alarm protection
Pearl lies at the heart of a system designed to combat false alarms once and for all, even in conventionally difficult to protect environments.
The Pearl system drives Notifier’s extensive range of intelligent detectors, advanced detection products, input and output devices, repeaters and mimic drivers. This allows you to fit the best detection technology without sacrificing the ability to adapt your system in the future. The Pearl also uses sub-addressing to maximise the potential benefits of multi-sensors and interfaces.
A ground breaking aspiration solution designed to deliver highly accurate and discreet early warning fire detection. Unique dual vision technology and intuitive features allow access to data from anywhere in the world, outperforming competitor systems. FAAST delivers zero false alarms, zero downtime and 100% business confidence.
Immunity to false alarms
Pearl for flats and student accommodation
Sheltered housing, student accommodation and apartment blocks all have unique changes in protecting residents and avoiding nuisance false alarms.
Evacuating a complete block of flats each time an alarm is activated causes major problems for all involved. With Pearl, when a device in an individual flat, for example, picks up a smoke signal, the Pearl software ensures that a general alarm will only be activated and the building evacuated if heat or smoke persists for a pre-determined time period or extends to a second device. If not, the system automatically resets itself. This also enables the resident or warden to investigate whether or not there is a real fire-related incident.
Pearl for offices
Today, businesses increasingly require more flexible, modern office space which can be adapted easily to meet changing commercial needs.
Pearl gives you fire protection that’s flexible to your needs and easy for office staff to use. As well as having a broad choice of detection to balance best detection and almost complete false alarm immunity, the Pearl system has features to allow staff on site to confirm an alarm signal before evacuation. Pearl balances the need for fast fire detection and evacuation with the need for a flexible easy to use, future proof system and all the time keeping a close eye on the budget.
Lifetime cost of ownership
The Pearl system delivers a host of benefits from design, installation and commissioning to daily operation and routine maintenance, all in one cost-effective package.
Peace of Mind
We never underestimate the key role fire systems play in quickly identifying a potential fire, alerting building occupants to the potential danger and prompting them to take appropriate action. However, 50 years’ experience at the forefront of the fire industry have taught us that, beyond this fundamental need, our customers requirements differ
enormously. Which is why Pearl systems can be tailored to a specific building whatever its function. Meaning you only pay for what you need.
Freedom of choice
Notifier works with a network of
over 50 independent fire installation,
commissioning and maintenance companies. Every one of them has
completed a comprehensive training
programme and has direct access
to extensive product, technical and
application support. So, when it comes to choosing a company to install and maintain your Pearl system, you can be confident
of complete freedom of choice and
the assurance you are working with a
company that boasts the experience and expertise to meet your specific challenge.
The Pearl is capable of not only
monitoring its own performance but
adapting to the changing environment within different areas of a building. This intelligent approach to fire detection has resulted in a stable, fault-tolerant system which provides uninterrupted protection
whilst practically eliminating the potential for nuisance false alarms. When selecting and installing a fire system, offices, factories, schools, historic buildings, laboratories and data centres all pose their own distinct individual challenges. But rest assured, Notifier’s flexible approach, backed by the expertise of
the companies who install our systems, means the requirements of any building can be fully met. And with low cost service and system upgrade costs, those requirements can be met cost-effectively.
