SigniFire video smoke detection obtains UL Listing

Published:  29 January, 2010

Fike announced today it has received UL Listing on its SigniFire video smoke detection system.  Approved to the new UL 268B standard for video smoke detection, Fike's SigniFire is the only system in the world to have both the UL listing and FM approval.

Offered as a turnkey solution for video smoke, flame and intrusion detection, SigniFire is a state-of-the-art, camera-based detection system that visually detects the presence of smoke or fire at its source, independent of airflow in the area.  SigniFire provides a critical advantage for early warning fire detection, identifying and reacting to fire situations in their earliest stages, helping to protect property and save lives. 
"This technology is an exciting advancement in early warning fire detection," explained Mac Mottley, CEO of axonX, a subsidiary of Fike. "Used in applications where traditional smoke detection technologies may not be practical or efficient, current SigniFire installations include fossil fuel power plants, nuclear facilities, industrial facilities, cultural properties, warehouses and tunnels. Challenging environments and open area venues no longer have to settle for inadequate fire protection."
