Multi-sensor detector research to make waves in industry - UPDATE: briefing paper now available
Added 25/04/2018
Research undertaken by the Building Research Establishment in association with the FIA and a range of manufacturers of detection products has lead to some momentous discoveries in the field of fire detection and alarm: more sophisticated multi-sensor detectors really are more effective at reducing false alarms than the ‘standard’ smoke alarms.

The research, undertaken by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and the University of Duisburg in Germany, and part-funded by the FIA, used a range of different detectors – both standard and multi-sensor, to find out which detectors were more effective in terms of sensitivity and reducing false alarms.
