What is VESDA?
VESDA (an abbreviation of Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus) is a laser based smoke detection system. The name VESDA has become a generic name for most air sampling applications. The name VESDA is a trade mark of Xtralis.
Having been operating within specialist fire detection applications for over 20 years, the VESDA system has a proven track record and has been developed beyond traditional fire alarms, to the point where it is recognised as the most advanced aspirating smoke detection system within the fire industry, holding more certifications than any other aspirating smoke detector in the world.
How does VESDA work?
A VESDA detector is much like a vacuum cleaner. It sucks air from the protected environment via purpose built aspirating pipe and fittings and samples the quality of air passing through the VESDA detection laser chamber.

Fact: Until an incident occurs, you will have no idea whether or not the alarm system you have chosen and paid for will do the job of protecting property and human life.
One way to be sure that your fire alarm is of the very best standard is to ensure that you choose a company who has BAFE SP203 accreditation.
There are a number of Standards but the one which relates to Fire Alarms is BAFE SP203. To have this accreditation means that a company has been vetted by BAFE and that nothing will be left to chance. The design, installation and maintenance of the fire system will be of the very highest integrity.
