Fire Beam Xtra at Dubai Intersec Show 2020

Fire Beam Xtra at Dubai Intersec Show 2020

The Fire Beam Company were delighted to be exhibiting again at the Dubai Intersec Show 2020 and showcasing our latest innovation - thefirebeamXtra.

This innovation can cover distances up to 160 metres, meaning for distances over 100 metres you no longer need to use two beams, saving both time and money. The industry response having now used the Xtra was totally complimentary and excited at the reliably using the new beam with all its added cost saving advantages.

The new revised optics mean the Xtra incorporates features we have honed over the years with the latest advanced components and fully VdS approved to EN 54-12:2015 is regarded as the world leader.

Add to this intelligent self-aligning motorisation and the ease of a ground level controller and the Fire Beam Xtra really is the 'go-to' beam if ease of use, proven reliability and cost reduction initiatives are required.

Introducing The Fire Beam Xtra

Fire Beam Xtra

The Fire Beam Company is delighted to announce the launch of the new Fire Beam Xtra. Incorporating many of your suggestions and adding our own new innovations, the new Xtra model has further refined this already extraordinary market leader. With new enhanced optics you can cover distances up to 160 metres, meaning for distances over 100 metres you no longer need to use two beams, saving both time and money.

The industry's favourite beam detector is now the world's longest reaching reflective beam, meaning less beams and less expense, not only in hardware but also in reduced installation costs. The standard Fire Beam Xtra uses one reflector and will cover up to 70 metres. Add the Mid Range Distance Kit to cover distances between 70 and 140 metres, or the Long Range Distance Kit to cover distances between 140 and 160 metres.

Add to this intelligent self-aligning motorisation and the ease of a ground level controller and the Fire Beam Xtra really is the 'go-to' beam if ease of use, proven reliability and cost reduction initiatives are required.

New revised optics means this new design incorporates all the leading features we have honed over the years and with the latest advanced components we have produced a VdS approved fully compliant to EN 54-12:2015 beam detector that out performs all other beams in the market place.

Unveiled: The all new Fire Beam ONE

The New Fire Beam One

It's been a long time in development but well worth the wait! The new Fire Beam ONE bridges the gap in our range for an entry level device where the advantages of motorisation and adjustability are not needed and budget is a major consideration.

We have taken a long look at this sector of the market and come up with what we believe to be the best in class! Incorporated into our design are a few must-haves that make commissioning and in-service durability truly world beating.

To aid commissioning we have incorporated an easy to see green laser that is individually calibrated in the factory with the beam path, meaning that if the green dot of the laser is on the reflector the beam is aligned - very simple and very quick! This takes out the guess work and difficulties usually associated manualy aligned beams!

We have also incorporated a few other Fire Beam favourites:

  • Fully enclosed engineering to an IP65 rating, meaning cleaning will not harm alignment and ingress is not a problem.
  • Incredibly low power consumption (a constant 2mA) means with the use of a manufacturers interface, in most cases, the ONE can be made addressable and loop powered.
  • New advanced optics also mean that we have been able to extend the usable range of the beam to 70 metres with just one reflector and up to 120 metres with just 4 reflectors

All in all a rather attractive solution to the fixed beam market.

More details will be made available on our Products page in the coming months.
