New Fast Fixed detector base cuts time wasted on site

Protec have introduced a ‘Fast Fixed’ base for their Algo-Tec 6000PLUS sensor range. Its neat design provides a low profile and unobtrusive mount to better blend devices into modern working environments.

The base also helps overcome system commissioning delays brought about by building schedule setbacks.

The ‘Fast Fixed’ base is primarily intended to mount detectors, semi-recessed into a suspended ceiling. The design allows the sensor to be connected and commissioned prior to the installation of the ceiling, if necessary, saving time at a critical period for a project.

The Protec sensor can be mounted onto the base, which is then connected to the loop and wired back to the Fire Detection & Alarm (FD&A) system panel, and the whole system can be commissioned as normal. Subsequently, when the ceiling is installed, the sensor, still coupled to the base, is pulled through a hole cut for it in the ceiling tile. A bezel is then attached to the sensor, and the unit is secured using the cleverly designed integral clamp arms. This fixes the detector firmly to the ceiling. The assembly is completed with cosmetic screw covers for an aesthetically pleasing finished job.

Protec’s Sales Director, Craig Hore, believes this is exactly what the industry wants: "This simple idea will mean less man-hours are wasted on site waiting to coordinate building work with system installation," he said. "This can only save installers time and money, improving profitability for them in today’s difficult financial climate."
