The Challenge

Film sets are notorious for using special effects such as smoke machines which could trigger a false fire alarm. A major challenge on this project was ensuring we specified and installed equipment that was fit for purpose, yet avoided contamination reaching the fire detectors installed around the film sets. Due to the size of the site, we also had to ensure the location of all alarm activations could be exactly pinpointed.

The Solution

To overcome these challenges, we facilitated the design of an fire alarm system that could be resistant to special effects, such as smoke, allowing for minimal disruption to Film and TV productions on set through false alarms.
