FireVu – Ideal for Use on High Rise Buildings

NetVu attended Surrey Fire Innovation day on 26 March 2018 to demonstrate FireVu as an early warning detection system for fire in high rise buildings.

The test comprised of a FireVu Multi-Detector with a pan fire at the bottom of the tower to simulate a high rise building whereby break out may be occurring from a window to the outside of the building.

The successful test, recorded in the video below, identified flame and thermal in seconds, demonstrating how FireVu can rapidly detect fire even in open air scenarios.
