Alertex - White Paper

Why Are Construction Sites Choosing Alertex Fire Alert?

Around 40% (approximately 100,000) of all construction site fires are started deliberately. In line with HSG168 regulations all sites must now display a visual AND audible alert to fire. The ALERTEX fire system has been designed specifically for temporary and evolving sites and complies with HSE Fire Safety guidelines.

Quick and Easy to Install

Alertex units are delivered pre-programmed so once the batteries are inserted units can be screwed in place and the system is ready.

No Base Station or Interface

Unlike other systems, Alertex units are standalone meaning they do not need a base station, bridge or interface to communicate.

Unrivalled Transmission Range

Units can be placed up to 1km apart and the mesh protocol used means that even on the most challenging of sites, when one unit is triggered it will activate all other units in range.

Audibly Distinct

With an adjustable decibel level of up to 117 dB and 32 alarm sounds to choose from, each system can be configured to suit the requirements of the site.  Alternatively, sounders can be replaced with annunciators allowing a bespoke message to be aired on activation.

Robust Design

External units have a durable IP66 weather-rated enclosure. For additional protection from falling debris, units can be fitted with external cages if required.

Connect Sites

Larger construction sites may have zones where evacuations are not necessary due to their proximity. Alertex programming allows users to set different site codes for these areas if required.

Protection for Part-Builds

The protection of part-builds from fire is always a concern on an evolving site.  Alertex heat and smoke detectors will trigger Alertex alert points within a 100m range. Heat and smoke detectors have a 10-year battery life and will automatically power up when the detector is installed on a mounting plate.

An Intelligent System

If required you can add an IP masthead to the system which will give you access to the Alertex PC app designed to monitor and control units. It also allows for email alerts to be sent to key site management staff to give updates and further information on event activations.
