Hyfire signals express delivery pledge on wireless fire safety devices

29 November 2021

DESPITE THE global supply chain crisis and the ensuing shortage of electronics components, wireless fire device manufacturer Hyfire has pledged to fulfil all customer orders within one to two days, including smoke detectors, Call Points and other devices from its flagship Taurus range.

With installers struggling to meet demand for new fire systems and upgrades, an especially so for projects in residential and high-rise buildings, the rapid availability of Hyfire wireless devices is going to be welcome news as not only are wireless devices quicker and simpler to install, but they can also be pre-programmed off-site to help minimise contact with building occupiers.

“When we were preparing for the launch of Taurus earlier this year,” said Tom Crane, business unit director for Hyfire, “our UK procurement team rightly anticipated the surge in demand for wireless fire devices in the aftermath of the lockdown, which was then further fuelled by the advent of the Fire Safety Act 2021. This means that we retain ample stocks of all key devices in our Taurus and Static lines, including a full range of wireless fire detectors, expanders, sounders, Call Points and input modules.”

Hyfire “offers the widest range of commercial standard wireless fire devices” on the market, ranging from optical, multi-criteria and heat detectors through to notification, alarm, interface and control units, all of them fully certified to EN54. All products are also fully compliant with BS 5839 Part 1.

Fire panels are wired via a loop to translators, from which wireless devices can be used on their own to build fully wireless systems of virtually any size, or otherwise mixed with Hyfire wired products to provide seamless hybrid solutions, in turn offering “total flexibility” for specifiers and installers.

Performance capacity

The Taurus wireless range offers all of the advantages traditionally associated with wireless, such as convenience, rapid installation and simplified system specification, and adds performance that will not only equal traditional wired systems, but exceed them in most areas.

It can easily answer the needs of both small-to-medium or large-scale sites and is capable of handling up to 128 devices per wireless translator and 240 per hybrid loop, with Hyfire signalling a ten-year battery life on input and five years on output devices.

“We know there are many installers out there pulling their hair out due to the unavailability of key devices,” continued Crane, “so it’s great that we have the capacity to help them out. It’s not just a call to existing Hyfire installers either. We are always seeking new partners and, if they happen to be new to wireless devices, it’s not a problem. We offer all the guidance and support they’ll need.”

Hyfire was launched as Sterling Safety Systems back in 2007, bringing to market some of the first commercial wireless detection and alarm devices fully certified to EN54. Hyfire devices are supplied with a five-year warranty, backed up by a dedicated Partner Programme to ensure the best survey, installation, commissioning and after-sales service in combination with “exceptional” technical support.
