Smoke detection system

The deluxe Caja Mágica tennis complex in Madrid is using around 50 assorted Fireray 50R and Fireray 100R beam-type smoke detectors to help protect the large indoor spaces created by the three main, fully coverable stadiums.

According to Fire Fighting Enterprises (FFE), reflective beam detectors like the Fireray models that have been installed are designed specifically for situations such as this, with each unit’s beam said to be able to sense smoke over a wide corridor of space. One Fireray 100R can detect smoke over an area as great as 1500m2 — this, according to FFE, would usually need about 15 point detectors to safely protect. An inherent benefit, adds the company, is the reduced aesthetic impact; only a fraction of the cabling and maintenance of other systems is required owing to the smaller number of detectors.
