Air aspirating detectors
Working on a similar basis to optical smoke detectors, these detectors are highly sensitive and pick up very small amounts of smoke. The detection is delivered by way of a plastic tube running along the area to be protected. Air is sucked through small holes in parts of the tube and is then analysed back at the main detector. Typical applications may be server rooms, voids, atriums, museums, art galleries and places with high value stock or high value equipment.
