Fire Alarm Flashers Come In All Shapes And Sizes

Fire alarm flashers are a worthwhile addition to any fire alarm system – they provide a visual warning of fire.

Fire alarm flashers first emerged on to the fire alarm market in the 1970s, mostly as red or white incandescent lights and as an accessory to existing fire alarm horns. By the 80s new fire alarm system installations were including fire alarm flashers as standard as the major benefits of having these devices became apparent.

A fire alarm flasher is essential in many types of application such as where background noise in a busy factory inhibits workers hearing or where people could be wearing ear plugs or ear protectors. Fire alarm flashers will grab the attention of those people and let them quickly know there could be immediate danger.

Another situation where fire alarm flashers could save lives is in letting hearing-impaired or deaf people know that there is a fire alarm situation. Much the same as able people will react to the sound of an audible fire alarm, the hearing-impaired will know to react the same way to a fire alarm flasher and take appropriate action such as evacuating the building.

Fire alarm flashers work on the same principle as fire alarm sounders and it is often possible to purchase combined fire alarm sounder-flashers to reduce the number of devices in your fire alarm system. As soon as the fire alarm control panel registers the fire signal from a fire detector the sounders and flashers in the alarm system will all receive a signal to activate. Traditionally the fire alarm flasher will emit a red strobe light but it is possible to purchase flashers in colourless enclosures and even amber or blue.

Fire alarm flashers are also available in a number of styles and designs – low-profile flashers, round flashers, square flashers, domed flashers and even weather-proof flashers are on the market so you can choose the ideal fire alarm flasher to suit the feel and function of your premises.
