Aspirating detectors

Aspirating detectors are suitable in areas where early detection is required, and in particularly dusty, damp or clean rooms. In an aspiration system, air samples are taken from the monitored area via a pipeline to a centralized detection unit. The pipes are perforated with holes that make up the detection points.

Aspirating detectors function by sampling air via a network of pipes, sampled air is passed through a dust filter and into a detector chamber where the air is analysed for traces of smoke. The detectors are capable of detecting the small amounts of smoke that are generated in the initial phases of a smouldering fire, ensuring the earliest possible warning of a potential fire while distinguishing real smoke from dust and pollutants, reducing unwanted alarms to a minimum.

Every detector is “trainable” for the specific environment in which it is installed.

Typical applications include laboratories, large open spaces, corrosive environments, archives/historical buildings and industrial areas.


ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a homogenous material with good chemical resistance and high impact strength. They are suitable for use at low temperatures (-40°C) and easy to join.
