Xtralis is a global leader and pioneer in life safety. We invented VESDA very early warning aspirating smoke detection (ASD), the world’s leading ASD brand. Customers worldwide rely on VESDA when business continuity is imperative, environments are challenging, and time is required to ensure safe and orderly evacuation. VESDA ASD systems also can be equipped with modules to detect hazardous/combustible gases to extend their value beyond smoke detection to include gas detection and environmental monitoring.
What is Very Early Warning Smoke Detection?
VESDA aspirating smoke detection solutions with continuous air sampling provide the earliest possible warning of an impending fire hazard. VESDA aspirating smoke detectors buy the critical time needed to investigate an alarm and initiate an appropriate response to prevent injury, property damage or business disruption. VESDA detectors have multi-level warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that does not degrade or change over time, so even minute levels of smoke can be detected before a fire has time to escalate. In addition, VESDA systems are manufactured using targeted Six Sigma techniques and ISO 9000 standards and have been certified by regulatory bodies worldwide.
