Industries & Applications

As one of leading manufacturers in the fire protection industry, Protectowire FireSystems has the experience and knowledge needed to meet the ever-increasing detection challenges of the special hazard and commercial industries.
Warehousing & Cold Storage
In rack protection and cold storage warehouses with sub-zero storage, temperatures are a few of the challenges found in the warehouse and storage industries. Protectowire Linear Heat Detectors offer innovative specialty products, single-source capabilities, and a total system solution to solve the fire detection challenges associated with this industry.

Protectowire Confirmed Temperature Initiation (CTI) Series Linear Heat Detectors provide the most dependable and cost-effective fire detection option for cold storage applications. Protectowire FireSystems provides the only Digital Linear Heat Detector that offers short circuit discrimination. Unlike conventional linear heat detectors, damage to the CTI Series Linear Heat Detector will not cause a false alarm. The CTI Series uses multi-criteria detection to eliminate false alarms and assures only heat-activated alarms are reported. Most refrigerated and warehousing facilities are double interlocked pre-action systems, which makes the CTI Series an ideal Linear Heat Detector for this particular type of suppression system.

When used in double interlock pre-action sprinkler systems, Protectowire is typically installed at the ceiling and in the racks at every level of sprinkler piping. The detector has been specifically designed for the harsh environment and can protect in temperatures up to -60°F (-51°C), depending upon the model selected. Protectowire Detectors are available in wide variety of alarm temperatures and jackets suitable for any type of installation environment.

Protectowire Linear Heat Detectors are ideally suited for use in self-storage warehouses. The detector can be installed longitudinally in each building thereby covering each individual storage compartment. By incorporating a Protectowire FireSystem Control Panel with alarm point location meter, the linear distance of the alarm point can be identified and related to a specific cubicle. Protectowire’s low maintenance requirements allow for a simple system test procedure which eliminates the need to unlock every storage space for inspection and testing of the fire alarm system.

Protectowire is not adversely affected by temperature fluctuations which often occurs between the heated and unheated areas of a barn or stable building. Unlike smoke detectors, other environmental factors such as dust, dirt, and insects do not affect the operation of Protectowire Detectors.

Protectowire Linear Heat Detection Systems may be used to activate a pre-action sprinkler system in addition to providing fire detection capabilities. The systems are designed to provide the most reliable and cost-effective fire detection available for the risks and environmental conditions associated with this unique application.
