Gent's FAAST Fire Alarm Systems

FAAST Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology™ is a new generation of smoke detectors from Gent, which uses advanced technologies and software to deliver the earliest and most accurate smoke detection.
As an approved supplier, Britannia can design a system bespoke to each customer and the range is designed to work in even the most challenging environments where standard detection methods fail or are prone to false alarm, or in areas which may not previously have been protected.
These systems can detect fires significantly faster than point or beam smoke detectors enabling a fast response to the first signs of smoke. This early detection is particularly vital to mission critical and high-risk applications.

    Gent Fire Alarm Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the different types of fire alarms?

    There are several types of fire alarms, but you may not know what they are and why each alarm is best suited for particular fire emergencies. Below we have listed the various alarms available and why they are best suited;


    • Ionisation Alarm (for invisible smoke particles)
    • Optical alarm (for detecting the larger smoke particles and suitable to use throughout buildings)
    • Heat alarm (for detecting heat. Heat sensors are therefore ideal for kitchens)
    • Combined alarms or multi-sensors (detect both smoke and heat)
    • Mains alarms (connected to your buildings electrical supply, meaning you won’t need to change batteries)
    • Interconnected alarms (for an additional level of safety by ensuring that if one alarm triggers, every alarm in that building does)

    Do fire alarms signal the fire department?

    In simple, not all fire alarms alert the fire deprtment. Sometimes, fire alarms are single station systems, which means that alarms are connected to a series of detectors, sensors & sprinkler heads, but you still need to call 999 for help. The best solution if you want total protection (and peace of mind) is to opt for a fire alarm with 24/7 monitoring.

    What is a Gent fire alarm system?

    A Gent fire alarm system is a comprehensive and advanced solution for detecting and warning against potential fires in a building. It includes various components such as smoke detectors, heat sensors, control panels, and sounders to provide early detection and efficient evacuation during an emergency.

    Do you offer customised solutions for Gent fire alarm systems?

    Yes, we understand that every building has unique fire protection needs. That’s why we work closely with our clients to design and install customised Gent fire alarm systems that meet their specific requirements and comply with the latest industry standards.

    Do you provide regular maintenance checks for Gent fire alarm systems?

    Yes, as part of our comprehensive services, we also offer regular maintenance checks for Gent fire alarm systems to ensure they are working effectively at all times.
