Halton, which offers indoor environment products, services and solutions, has announced the launch of Halton Safe, a fire-damper control system. The manufacturer claims that the system can control the operation of up to 200 fire and smoke dampers and 200 smoke detectors, and can, therefore, improve the safety of a building, while still keeping the installation and cabling costs low.

The manufacturer lists the following product features and benefits:

  • The central unit can be modularly extended with Halton Safe Link control units, to which the fire dampers and smoke detectors are connected in groups of one to four units.
  • Fire dampers and smoke detectors can be clustered into as many as 15 groups, enabling the system to respond to a fire alarm by closing only those fire dampers that are in the fire compartment.
  • The system also allows automatic testing of fire and smoke dampers on a weekly basis at a time specified by the user.
  • It incorporates the requirement of testing fire dampers as required by many national regulations.
  • It creates a report on the tests carried out, indicating the functionality of each fire damper.
  • It comes with an easy-to-use 5.7-inch graphical touchscreen. Optionally, the system can be equipped with a remote connection that makes all of the functions available via a Web browser.
  • Commissioning instructions are given in the user guide for Halton Safe – operation and installation instructions’ manual, supplied with the product.
  • In addition, Halton supplies its customers with commissioning as a service.
