1. Gradual Heating
What happens right before a fire starts? While there may be no flame, a thermal camera can still see that something’s amiss. That’s because temperatures must rise for any material to combust. Even though smoke detectors won’t respond, the SAFETIS system will react.
2. Smoke Generation
Smoke follows heat, so phase two of any fire is visible to the naked eye – and to a smoke detector. However, once smoke rises, the risk of rapid combustion is very high. A reaction in phase two may be too late.
