European manufacturer of complete fire-safety systems, Global Fire Equipment (GFE), will showcase the latest additions to its product portfolio at INTERSEC 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 16 to 18 January.
GFE’s specialists will be on Stand F-09 in Hall 3 to highlight its range of fire-control panels, detectors, sounders, VADs and fire-alarm monitoring, control and communications software. Visitors to the stand will also be able talk to the GFE team about the importance of understanding the EN54 certification and approval processes when specifying fire-safety systems, as well as the benefits of working with a full system provider.
In 2021, an international third-party Notified Body laboratory awarded GFE the prestigious EN 54-13:2017+A1:2019 approval for its digital addressable fire-alarm systems. This standard differs from others because it is a system performance standard, rather than a product standard, thereby confirming the compatibility and connectivity of all the individual components of GFE addressable fire-safety systems.
GFE will highlight the end-user benefits of its next generation addressable fire-alarm control panels, including the G-ONE (single loop), GEKKO and the OCTO+, which are versatile, compact and expandable from 1 to 4 loops. Fully Construction Products Regulation (CPR) certified to EN 54-2 and EN 54-4, the control panels are suitable for a wide range of applications, from small to large buildings including those on complex sites, all with remote communications for management and maintenance of the system.
GFE will also take the opportunity to introduce its brand-new OWL Software. OWL is a graphical display, alarm management and monitoring software which allows customers to import their cause-and-effect configuration file from the panel to the monitoring software at the click of a button. With OWL, customers can not only monitor the status of their panels but also receive real-time information with complete visibility of their entire fire detection and alarm system.
Also on show will be the company’s new ZEOS 2 series and ZEOS 2 multi detectors, which are designed to reduce the likelihood of false fire alarms due to special filters that prevent unwanted particles entering the detector chamber. Both detectors are fully compatible with the company’s CHAMELEON Network range of intelligent control panels (G-ONE, GEKKO and OCTO+).
Finally, INTERSEC 2022 will also mark GFE’s launch of its intelligent addressable Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and natural gas (NG) alarm detectors. The new ZEOS AD LPG and ZEOS AD NG series are fully compatible with GFE’s CHAMELEON Network range of intelligent EN 54-certified fire-control panels. All GFE products are designed with simplicity, durability and reliability in mind and are easy to install and maintain.
João Paulo Ajami, Managing Director of GFE, comments: ‘INTERSEC is a key event in the fire industry’s calendar, and we are delighted to be getting back in front of customers to highlight our latest products.
‘The Middle East is a strategically important market for GFE, and this year’s show will see us have an even greater presence than in previous years, reflecting our continued commitment to this thriving region. We have invested heavily in developing products and solutions that are designed specifically for the Middle East and INTERSEC is the ideal platform for us to introduce them to the market.’
