FireVu’s Visual Smoke and Flame Detection System has obtained FM Approval

FireVu has announced that its Visual Smoke and Flame Detection System has obtained FM Approval, an internationally recognised testing standard. This latest achievement follows more than ten years of success for FireVu, an award-winning solution which provides early fire detection for high-value assets and is used on more than 200 sites worldwide across various industries.

FM Approval is issued by FM Global, a worldwide company which provides comprehensive global commercial and industrial property insurance.

As a globally respected testing standard for certifying products that prevent property loss in industrial or commercial applications, FM Approval is stipulated by many international companies within their invitations to tender.

FireVu’s attainment of this approval means that these applications will benefit from its diversity and sophistication.

Also recognised in Europe, FM Approval ensures that products comply with its highest standards.

Following extensive scientific research and examination at the FM test facility, FireVu’s solution was found to conform to the performance requirements of the Approval Standard for Video Image Fire Detectors for Automatic Fire Alarm Signalling.

FireVu’s proven Video Smoke Detection technology detects, identifies and analyses smoke and flame at the start of a fire. It’s used successfully across sectors such as power generation, manufacturing industries, tunnels and aircraft hangars where time is of the essence when responding to fire.

Pauline Norstrom, chief operating officer for FireVu, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for FireVu and reflects the hard work of our team in ensuring that our products meet the highest international standards. Our goal at FireVu is to continue to bring our innovative fire detection solutions to market across a range of sectors. Having FM Approval can only help us achieve this aim.”

Among FireVu’s latest innovations is the Multi Detector which combines smoke, flame and thermal sensing in a single unique solution.
