What’s A Smoke sensitivity testsensitivity_testing_ijjmages

 

Smoke detector activates according to the sensitivity of the unit to the detection of smoke and our heat in a given room. What the smoke sensitivity test does is measure the threshold of an activation of each unit in your commercial facility. If the smoke detector is too sensitive alarms can’t go off in inappropriate times and cause damage. NFPA are the standards that Majestic Fire Protection follows when conducting annual sensitivity test on all smoke and heat sensors within facilities. The method in with the test is conducted on each unit is the introduction of a calibrated amount of smoke into the smoke detector unit. Your technician will start with a minimum amount of smoke then increase the amount introduced to the unit in order to ascertain when the unit triggers the alarm.
