Fire Industry Association to assess current fire industry market conditions

The Fire Industry Association (FIA) – the UK’s largest Trade Association for the fire safety sector – is to carry out its latest large-scale survey designed to assess the current market conditions within the UK fire market.

The Market Conditions Survey, which is conducted every year, asks businesses within the fire market to voice their opinions on various areas of trade, such as the number of orders and quotations provided, and tracks their views on the need for training and personnel.

The FIA is asking businesses working within the fire sector to contribute to the survey as this will form an essential piece of research and help when it comes to predicting the market trends within the industry.

As an added incentive, the FIA is offering respondents to the survey the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher. For those who are quick enough, the first 100 people to enter will be given two entries into the prize draw.

The FIA promises full confidentiality. No names or businesses will be singled out within the report.

Hochiki Europe to showcase latest life safety technology at Security Essen 2018

Hochiki Europe, the leading manufacturer of life safety solutions, will be showcasing a range of its latest technology during Security Essen 2018, which runs from 25-28 September at MESSE ESSEN. Solutions on display at Stand 6E30 include Hochiki Europe’s ACD-EN CO multi-sensor, the new range of short circuit isolator (SCI) sensors and FIREscape Emergency Lighting.

The ACD-EN is badged as “the most technologically superior multi-sensor ever developed” by Hochiki Europe. In addition to smoke, heat and carbon monoxide (CO) detection elements, the ACD-EN also features a sophisticated mode enhancement called +RFA. In multi-mode with +RFA, any changes to the environment will automatically adjust the alarm threshold and sensitivity of the device, therefore reducing false alarms without compromising fire response times.

The SCI integrated range offers specifiers and consultants an efficient, cost-effective and compliant solution to life safety. In many central European markets, including Germany, legislation dictates that an isolator is required every time there’s a change of device type on the loop. Therefore, having the SCI integrated into the sensor removes the need to buy separate SCI bases.

Hochiki Europe’s emergency lighting range, FIREscape, will also will be on display at Security Essen. FIREscape is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly emergency lighting system based on LED technology.

Speaking ahead of the exhibition, Mark Jones, export manager at Hochiki Europe, commented: “We know that, for our customers in Germany and throughout Europe, legislation is a deciding factor when specifying life safety equipment on projects. Security Essen is a great opportunity for us to showcase our extensive product range, which includes wireless, marine and aspirating technology, and to help our customers find the right solutions for their projects.”

Over 40,000 visitors from 45 different countries are expected to attend Security Essen, which will host over 1,000 exhibitors.
