Residential Fire Panels

Brooks knowledge is your advantage.

Reliable early warning of a developing fire is essential so that the occupant is given the maximum time to escape to a place of safety.

Overview

When it comes to fire protection Brooks recognise that residential applications require special consideration. In keeping with our philosophy of quality, reliability, flexibility and maintainability, and not content to just offer individual products, Brooks have developed a range of residential fire alarm panels to enable fire system engineering principles, normally applied to commercial premises, to now be adapted to residential situations.

A correctly designed and installed Residential Smoke Alarm System provides an effective LIFE SAFETY SYSTEM, which raises the alarm and maximises your opportunity to escape.

Features

  • Residential Fire Panels provide control functions, monitoring, primary and secondary power supplies and terminations to the field devices.
  • Single and Multi-Zone configurations
  • Monitored alarm zone circuits
  • Zone Status Indicators
  • Voltage and Dry Contact Alarm Outputs
  • Alarm Control Functions
    • Locate Function Silences all smoke / heat alarms except those that have activated
    • Test / Fire Mode Function activates all smoke / heat alarm and outputs

The RFP suite of Residential Fire Alarm Panels complete with compatible smoke/heat alarms provide an automatic fire detection system designed to meet the requirements of AS3786-2014 and Building Code Australia.

The RFP systems provide solutions for residents sharing and being affected by a common fire alarm system and the problems associated with high probability of false or nuisance alarms. The Brooks RFP system not only allows for ease of installation and operation but has inbuilt features to ensure:

  • System integrity ( circuit supervisions/surge protection)
  • Customising to suit specific needs(general, zone or individual alarm)
  • Minimising of nuisance alarms ( photoelectric and heat alarms)
  • Trouble shooting maintenance (inbuilt diagnostics)

An automatic Residential fire alarm system is comprised of components for automatically detecting a fire and the initiation of local warning devices. The Residential Fire (RFP) system employs smoke and/or heat sensitive alarms with interconnect signalling, to initiate both audio and visual means of fire alarm warning. System functionality can be tailored for site specific requirements via simple dip switch adjustments.   The panels have the added important feature of supervising the zone circuitry for a fault condition. The Defect Mode output provides a means of monitoring whenever the system is placed either deliberately or accidentally into a non-standard condition.

Features

  • 6, 12 or 18 Zone Configurations (12 Alarms per zone)
  • Key switch Operation:
    • “ON” System ON - Charger ON
    • “OFF” System OFF - Charger ON
    • “FIRE” activates all smoke/heat alarms
  • Defect Output (Fault): 1 set changeover dry contact
  • Alarm Outputs: 12V DC 1 Amp maximum & 1 set changeover dry contact
  • Panic Input: N/O dry contact - activates all S/H Alarms
  • Sounder Silence Switch: Acknowledges panel sounder
  • Ancillary Isolate Switch: Isolate common alarm outputs
  • Alarm Locate Switch: Silences all Smoke/Heat Alarms except those initiating the alarm

The Alarm 2000 is designed for small residential occupancies requiring a smoke alarm system as set out in the Building Code of Australia, but also integrates the early warning with other building services. The system employs the design principles of AS1670 while utilising the cost effectiveness of Mains Powered Smoke/Heat alarms.  The Smoke/Heat Alarms are capable of independent automatic operation, with the Alarm 2000 Residential Fire Indicator Panel providing the ability to manually activate the alarms as well as integration with other essential facilities within the building, particularly those requiring control under fire conditions. These are selected as options to the basic system and include Residential Sprinklers, Manual Door Release, Emergency Lighting, Security, Air-conditioning/Heating Shutdown, Gas Supply Shutdown and Power Supply Supervision.

Features

  • Key switch Operation:
    • “AUTO” System ON - Charger ON
    • “OFF” System OFF - Charger ON
    • “FIRE” Activates all smoke/heat alarms
  • Alarm Outputs: 24V DC 1 Amp maximum & 1 set changeover dry contact
  • Common Fault Output: 1 set changeover dry contact
  • System Fail N/O dry contact for system turned ‘OFF’
  • Panic Input: N/O dry contact - activates all S/H Alarms
  • Supervised Input: N/O dry contact for manual activation of system
  • Sounder Silence Switch: Acknowledges panel sounder
  • Alarm Isolate Switch: Silences all smoke / heat alarms. Automatically resets after approximately (5) minutes
  • Alarm Locate Switch: Silences all Smoke/Heat Alarms except those initiating the alarm
