Product Details

Battery Powered Fire Alarm Control Panel

Gemini GX32 series interconnectable fire alarms for use in small buildings/structures such as porta-cabins (building sites) etc. It is designed in such a way that even if the fire cables are cut or short-circuited in several places the system will continue to function. Each call point contains its own piezo sounder and is individually battery powered. This enables a manual system complying with BS5839 Pt1 App.G and a smoke alarm system complying with BS5839 Pt6 Grade F to be installed without the need for fire resistant cable. Trace mode enables faults and battery problems to be pinpointed at the throw of a key. Up to 32 Callpoint/Sounder units can be connected to the control panel and one inter-linkable battery powered smoke alarm can be installed between each callpoint/sounder.

Note

Gemini GX32 is also available in kit form, GX32KIT400 (RS 439-1467)
Kit contains 1´ GX32CIE Control Panel, 4 ´ GX32MCP Manual Callpoint/Sounder Units, 140m Twin Red Inter-connecting Cable

Stand Alone Fire Alarms

Battery Operated

A comprehensive range of battery operated smoke alarms all carrying the BS Kitemark and compliance with BS5446:Pt1:1990. They are suitable for BS5839:Pt6:1995 Fire Systems grade F.

Mains Powered Interconnectable

All new properties are required by the Building Regulations to have installed mains powered smoke alarms. Refurbished properties and small commercial premises may also be required to install mains operated alarms.
BS5839:Pt.6:1995 acknowledges that all three types of detection i.e. ionisation, optical and heat detection, need to be considered depending on the installation circumstances. It is also recommended that some form of back-up is used in the event of mains failure.
Optical alarms are recommended for use in circulation spaces such as landings and hallways. Ionisation alarms are more appropriate for use in living rooms and fixed temperature heat alarms are designed for use in kitchens and garages. All alarms must be interconnected using 3 core and earth cable.

At least one alarm on each floor of the house
Max. 7.5m between alarms and no more than 3m from bedroom doors
Alarms can be wired off lighting circuits if the alarm has its own backup supply
Locate as close as possible to centre of ceiling, away from light fitting
