Apollo has updated and extended its XPander range of wireless fire detectors.
Designed for use in areas where hard-wired fire detection is impossible or impractical, XPander devices are ideal for use on construction or refurbishment sites.
Traditionally fire detection systems are installed once the building is complete and the main services are installed, yet it is still important to protect the building from major damage by fire during fit-out and alteration.
XPander can be used as part of an extension to a fixed fire system, so is ideal where works are ongoing as an extension or where temporary structures are in place. Buildings undergoing fire system refurbishment can also benefit from wireless devices: in this case the wireless fire detectors are used to provide temporary cover until the old fire system is decommissioned and a new hard-wired fire system can be installed.
The extended XPander range includes two new products and now consists of an optical smoke detector, a multisensor smoke detector, heat detector types A1R and CS, a wireless base, a manual call point, a sounder and a sounder beacon, and Single and Dual Input/Output Units. The complete range has been granted the new wireless link fire standard EN54 Part 25, which is the standard for European-compliant radio products.
