WES3 Detectors
Protect your site round the clock by adding automatic detection units to your WES fire safety solution. These battery powered detectors are easy to install, straightforward to use and can be operational within minutes.
We can supply smoke detectors, heat detectors and dust-resilient smoke detectors.
  • Detection units are silent and connect directly to the WES system to activate the fire alarm system across the site in the event of fire.
  • Minimum 3 years’ battery life, externally tested for normal usage conditions, reducing lifetime cost
  • Activated unit flashes red LED for 30 minutes after activation to enable easy identification
  • Ceiling mounted and suitable for internal use
  • Heat, smoke and dust resistant detector heads available
All units both send and receive radio signals, for maximum robustness of network coverage. Since detection units are incorporated into your WES network, they will they act as an early warning of fire risk to all site staff during the working day and they’ll also make sure that the site remains protected out of hours.
If you add a GSM base station, you can even make sure that security and monitoring personnel receive a text alert if the fire alarm is automatically triggered.
WES3 Interface
The WES fire alarm Interface lets you connect your WES temporary fire alarm to other systems, such as turnstiles, so that you can ensure your emergency systems are working together as efficiently as possible to protect your site.
  • Input: Connect so that the WES fire alarm system can be triggered to sound the alarm by an external system
  • Output: Connect so that the WES system going into alarm triggers an action on the part of an external system, eg auto dialler or access control
Note that the Interface cannot be connected directly to the mains current, and you will need a suitably qualified person to wire together the units.
WES3 Link Unit
The Radio Repeater Link unit is the simple, cost-effective way to extend the range of your WES temporary fire alarm system on very large-scale sites.
Simply connect to your existing WES units, set up on site and the unit will act as a relay to link geographically separated sections of the site together.
  • 3-year battery life, tested under normal operating conditions, reducing lifetime costs and need for constant replacement.
  • Anti-tamper controls to ensure system integrity and compliance
  • Transit mode to allow safe removal & storage without risk of activation
Do I need a link?
Most likely, you’ll never need a radio repeater unit for your WES system – each unit has excellent wireless range already. However, if you do receive a low signal warning, for example if a far-off fire point becomes more obscured as a build progresses and starts to lose signal, you can add a Link unit to boost the signal and make sure your fire alarm system continues to work optimally.
