Why Use A Gent Fire Alarm?

Founded in the 1800s, John Thomas was developing Gent fire alarm systems and soon became a leading manufacturer of fire detection. Gent has been providing businesses with fire detection for over a century now and that’s why we believe it to be the best possible protection for your business.

Since 1872, Gent has been developing state-of-the-art fire detection technology including heat detectors and call systems. In modern-day, these systems are used to protect thousands of businesses throughout the UK.

The Gent range of fire detection products is regarded as one of the most comprehensive ranges of fire detection devices available in the world.

Additionally, detecting a fire as early as possible is crucial to the safety of your building and employees. When there is the smallest incline of smoke, the Gent fire alarm system will be alerted and begin to sound.

Lastly, Gent fire alarm systems are capable of suiting any building size through scalability. This year (2022) marks their 150 year anniversary.

What is a conventional Gent fire alarm?

Honeywell Gent offers a cost-effective conventional fire detection system. The Xenex Gent fire alarm control panel can cover up to 8 zones and can be integrated with the low current S-Cubed range.

Conventional fire alarm systems are a popular choice for small to mid-sized facilities that do not require advanced features, such as addressability. A conventional fire alarm system utilises hard wiring to connect each initiating device to the control panel.

The main advantage of conventional systems over addressable ones is cost. Conventional systems can be installed at a much lower cost than their addressable counterparts.

What is an addressable Gent fire alarm?

The Addressable Vigilon and Nano Gent fire alarm systems are a combination of powerful control panels and market-leading intelligent devices. All devices are powered by a loop cable which delivers a flexible, streamlined system in any type of building. 

An addressable fire alarm system is a type of fire detection system that can be programmed to recognise specific devices within the network. This allows for quicker responses and more efficient troubleshooting.

Addressable systems typically consist of a central control panel and individual devices that are connected together by wire or wireless technology. Each individual device has its own unique address, making it easier to identify the exact device that has been activated in the event of an emergency.

The primary advantage of an addressable fire alarm system over conventional systems is that it makes it easier to pinpoint where the issue occurred in case of emergency situations, especially if multiple devices have been activated at once or if one device fails repeatedly.
