Patol to focus on Securiton ASD versatility at the fire safety event

February 2018

Fire detection specialists Patol will be returning to The Fire Safety Event¹, using Stand FS86 to focus on the Securiton aspirating smoke detection systems (ASD) which are proving increasingly popular in a wide range of applications.


Patol is the exclusive distributor in the UK for the German manufactured Securiton ASD range, approved to EN54-20 class A, B & C and offering scalable high sensitivity smoke detection for small single premises to much larger facilities. With three detectors available, from the flagship ASD 535 (available in one or two-channel options) through to the ASD 532 and ASD 531, there is an option to suit any environment. The different applications in which the technology is being applied is highlighted by two recent applications. A system is protecting inmates and staff at one of the UK’s largest prisons, while the goods in the largest warehousing and cross-docking facilities in one of the UK’s busiest ports is also benefitting from the reliable early warning offered by Patol. The capability of the ASD detectors to operate in temperatures from -30°C to +60° C, together with the option for Heated Sampling points, means that they are also widely used in cold store applications. A further benefit is the quiet operation of the detectors’ high performance fan in a range that has proven its performance in providing fast detection and alarm response for over 40 years.

The ASD 535 provides high sensitivity detection for areas up to 5,760 square metres, with the ASD 532 offering a compact solution for small to medium-sized applications and the ASD 531 providing a simple and convenient option for monitoring small areas.

Stand FS86 will also feature the latest addition to Patol’s fire detection solutions. The Fire Thermal Infrared (FireTIR) system employs fixed radiometric infrared cameras connected to a user-friendly software interface through which the surface temperatures of the area being protected are monitored in real time.

Patol will also be showing the latest developments in its range of linear heat detection cable (LHDC) products. This includes analogue, digital and fibre optic options to provide early detection of fire and overheating in applications for which other forms of fire detection are not viable, either through their prohibitive costs or their inability to sustain environmental requirements.
