FireVu provides early fire detection for high value assets.


Its proven Video Smoke Detection technology detects, identifies and analyses smoke at the start of a fire. This enables users, located on site or remotely, to raise the alert and take appropriate action early. VSD technology understands the behavior and movement of smoke. It was first developed in response to the requirement to provide a fire detection solution in a voluminous power generation facility. Since FireVu was first developed over 10 years ago, it has been refined and perfected. Today it also includes flame detection and has a security provision that can be combined in the client’s system.

FireVu is currently used on more than 200 sites globally, including power generation, manufacturing industries, tunnels, aircraft hangars and many other sectors where time is of the essence when responding to fire. If your assets are of high value VSD could be the solution.
