What is a Fire Indicator Panel?
The Fire Indicator Panel is the centre-point of a fire alarm system. Sensors installed in your workplace facility detect changes such as smoke or temperature. The sensor data is communicated back to the FIP, which triggers the fire alarm.
What does a Fire Indicator Panel do?
In the event of a fire, the FIP triggers your fire alarm. If alarm signalling equipment is installed, emergency services will be notified via monitoring systems.
To prevent the spread of fire, the FIP is also used to temporarily disable air conditioning systems.
The FIP can also be used to temporarily disable your facility’s environmental sensors. This is especially helpful with false alarm reduction, ensuring trades can carry out refurbishment works without triggering the fire alarm.
What is an EWIS?
When a fire is detected, the Emergency Warning and Intercommunication System (EWIS) assists you with evacuating your workplace facility.
The EWIS allows for the broadcast of a pre-recorded audio command to assist with evacuating staff.
Fire wardens and area wardens can also communicate via the EWIS to ensure a cohesive evacuation process.
