VESDA by Xtralis: detection of smoke by early aspiration

Xtralis is a global leader and pioneer in life safety. We invented VESDA very early aspiration smoke detection (ASD), the ASD No. 1 brand in the world. Customers around the world rely on Xtralis VESDA when business continuity is imperative, environments are challenging and time is needed to ensure a safe and orderly evacuation. VESDA ASD systems can also be equipped with modules to detect hazardous gases / fuels to extend their value beyond smoke detection to include gas detection and environmental monitoring.

What is early warning smoke detection?

The VESDA by Xtralis vacuum detection solutions, with very early warning, with continuous air sampling, provide the earliest possible warning of an imminent fire hazard. VESDA vacuum smoke detectors buy the critical time needed to investigate an alarm and initiate an appropriate response to avoid injury, property damage or business interruption. VESDA detectors have multilevel warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that does not degrade or change over time, so even the smallest smoke levels can be detected before the fire has time to climb. In addition, VESDA systems are manufactured using specific Six Sigma techniques and ISO 9000 standards and have been certified by regulatory bodies around the world.

What is VESDA ASD?

VESDA early warning detectors are available in a variety of models to suit a wide range of environments and applications. From small to very large, open spaces and from the cleanest to the dirtiest environments, the VESDA multi-level detection provides reliable and high-sensitivity early warning smoke detection.
