New FAAST™ Area Coverage Planner and Understanding EN54-20 Application Planner

April 15, 2016

Two new free assets designed to help system integrators, installers and specifiers to calculate the most efficient FAAST™ pipe systems and select the correct device models for EN54-20 applications are now available for download.

FAAST™ Area Coverage Planner

The new FAAST™ Area Coverage Planner, aligned with BS5839 Part 1, is a useful tool that helps consultants simplify the design and pricing process by allowing the quick calculation of the most efficient pipe typology to maximise the number of sampling points in a FAAST™ or FAAST LT™ system. This asset ably showcases FAAST’s™ ability to offer accurate, reliable and highly flexible ASD fire detection that can adapt to the most challenging applications, where traditional detection methods are known to fail or complex spaces and difficult to access locations create installation and maintenance issues.

Tim Checketts, FAAST Business Development Manager, comments on the value of the new free asset and its benefit to businesses, consultants and OEMs. “The Area Coverage Planner is an invaluable tool that allows the quick calculation of the most efficient pipe network with maximised sampling coverage; it showcases FAAST’s™ flexibility for a wide diversity of varied applications and gives easy access to data on ceiling height, area coverage, maximum sampling holes and pipe length. We have also provided diagrams of the various pipe typologies and key specification features for each model variant; this asset really does provide everything a consultant needs at a glance.”

Understanding EN54-20 Application Planner

The new free Understanding EN54-20 Application Planner provides an easy way to quickly identify EN54-20 Class A-C applications, along with the key specifiable elements of the relevant FAAST™ ASD unit, aligned with BS5839 Part 1.

Tim Checketts, FAAST Business Development Manager, comments on how businesses, consultants and OEMs can gain considerable value from using the free asset. “Understanding EN54-20 application requirements can be a complex task, so the ability to quickly identify the right FAAST™ model and key specifiable elements is highly advantageous.  

“The two-page asset also provides example application images and diagrams of a typical system design within specific key applications, providing all the information needed to quickly define the correct solution.”
