Product Spotlight – FAAST FLEX Aspirating Smoke Detector



FAAST FLEX is an advanced aspirating smoke detection system from Xtralis. It has been designed specifically to provide Class A, B or C detection for areas up to 2,000m2 where configurability, sensitivity and very early warning of fire are required.

These detectors deliver flexible and cost-effective smoke detection for a variety of different applications such as small to medium-sized warehouses, lift shafts, ceiling voids, cold storage facilities and more.

Available as either a one or two-channel ASD solution, the FAAST FLEX system continuously draws air from the monitored environment through a series of sampling holes to monitor the environment for smoke particles. Each channel has an inlet, a metallic filter, a sensing element and a flow monitoring system in place to provide constant detection with minimal nuisance alarms.

Pre-engineered pipe network designs make installation and commissioning extremely easy and system configuration can be carried out without the need for specialist tools. These detectors also have a reversible cover so that they can be installed with the inlet pipes either at the top or bottom of the unit. 

A Bluetooth interface allows these detectors to be paired with a smartphone application that offers extended configuration options and rapid diagnostics.

The modular design on which Xtralis has based this product allows for convenient in-field service and field replaceable components, thus reducing total cost of ownership.
