Evacuate everyone with Visual Alarm Devices

Relying on audible fire alarm notification alone disadvantages people with hearing impairments or those working, or living, in sound reducing conditions. To truly evacuate everyone from a building, we need to signal effectively using light as well as sound.


Klaxon’s Sonos Pulse range of beacons and sounder beacons are designed to ensure that all personnel are notified of fire emergencies, including people with sensory impairments or working in sensory depriving conditions. Featuring Pulse Alert Technology, Klaxon’s beacons help buildings to be evacuated quicker, make evacuation requirements clear and unambiguous, and allow personnel to feel safe and secure.

New European fire system standards recognise and legislate for these requirements. EN54-23 specifies the minimum performance requirements for Visual Alarm Devices (VADs), removing any previous ambiguity regarding the light output requirements or system design parameters involved with using light to evacuate buildings.

Klaxon’s Sonos Pulse beacons produce a light output that can protect most rooms with just a single device. Optical systems disperse light evenly, ensuring the most efficient distribution of light to maximise effectiveness. Klaxon’s Pulse Alert Technology provides all the benefits an EN54-23 compliant system can bring, whilst answering all of the design challenges in doing so.

Klaxon believes that all buildings deserve the latest fire evacuation technology, and that all fire alarm systems should be upgraded so that everyone can feel safe and secure.

Detectortesters to present innovative new solutions at Intersec

Detectortesters, the world’s leading manufacturer of test and maintenance equipment for fire detectors, is to present several new innovations at Intersec.

Following a year of new product introductions, the company will proudly present Solo 365 – an exciting new addition to the Solo range which, through a range of unique features, offers faster, simpler and cleaner functional testing of smoke detectors.

The new tester features a light, slim-line design which makes it simple to transport to and around site and makes for easy testing at height and in hard-to-access locations. Smoke is generated on demand which means only the smoke needed to activate the detector is used and the risk of over-application is eliminated.

An optional ASD adaptor means Solo 365 can also be used to functionally test aspirating smoke detection systems. This adaptor is easily fitted and puts the ability to test point type smoke detectors and ASD systems into one portable device – something which has proved extremely popular with fire engineers world-wide.

Solo 365 is available as part of the new range of Urban Kits which have also been recently introduced. These new kits are designed for engineers on the move, featuring shorter versions of the Solo access poles and new compact, stylish rucksacks. See all these products and more at Intersec – Stand 4-H37.

The Power You Need!

CET has been making fire fighting equipment since 1908 so we have seen a thing or two and have the know how to make a quality foam trailer to meet your specific needs. We customize nearly every unit we make.


Foam Trailers provide mobile fire fighting platform when fitted with high-performance fire attack monitors and master stream devices for flammable liquid hazards typically found in such areas as refineries and associated tank farms, chemical processing plants, truck and rail car unloading facilities, marine terminals, and airports. This portable equipment is extremely mobile and substantially increases the firefighting capabilities of industrial, municipal and military fire departments.

Additionally, a Foam Trailer provides large mobile storage capacity of foam concentrate for pre-planned strategic incident response scenarios.
CET foam trailers are highly customizable and normally range between 150 to 2000 gallons. We have several ready-made units with complete specs and drawings on the website. CET has expertise to aid agencies who purchase foam trailers through grants in mutual aid arrangements, as well as for airports, industrial locations the military and more.


Foam is needed for any fire or spill involving flammable or combustible solids or liquids, as water will not float on hydrocarbon products such as gasoline or diesel fuel. Water used on a fire in a contained area may sink, runoff or overflow. Also, foam reduces toxic and flammable vapors given off by fuels.

Let us know how we can help.

Praesidia by Inim: integration with vast potential Praesidia

The Praesidia is an Inim Electronics analogue-addressable fire detection control panel which thanks to its highly versatile modular design can be networked with ease to create large-scale automatic fire detection and alarm systems for complex installations in large building structures.

In response to the ever growing demand for integrated security-system management particularly in large-scale building structures Inim came forward with the vast potential of the Praesidia.
The Praesidia fire-detection system, with its powerful and versatile design, offers a completely new solution that stems from its capability to connect directly to a range of systems external to the fire-detection installation such as EVAC voice systems and Harper emergency lights and warning signs.

EVAC voice evacuation systems consist of one or more control units and a series of loudspeaker lines. These systems constitute an evacuation-warning system for building occupants and are a highly efficient way of providing detailed information, something that sounders alone cannot do. Integration between the Praesidia and these systems allows the activation of specifically targeted voice messages in the different areas involved in an evacuation.

The Praesidia is capable of managing Inim Electronics Harper Emergency Lamps and signs directly on its Loops. The electrical power supply may fail at any time, for instance in the event of a fire or network overload. In such situations emergency lamps provide essential lighting to ensure that building occupants can leave the premises in total safety.
Integration of emergency lighting and fire control systems greatly increases their performance and functionality: from selective activation of escape-route directions to guided evacuation based on the location of the danger.
