Fire Fighting Enterprises Gains CCCf Approval in China

Fire Fighting Enterprises (FFE) has received CCCf approval for its Fireray 5000 optical beam smoke detectors, allowing the company to distribute them in China.

Using infrared beams, optical beam detectors can identify smoke over much larger areas than traditional fire detection devices, making them perfectly suited for large indoor spaces. They work by transmitting a beam of invisible infrared light across the building space to be protected. Usually wall-mounted at near-ceiling level, a receiver detects and measures the light and can recognise smoke interference anywhere along the beam path, triggering the alarm signal when the pre-determined threshold is reached.

The Fireray 5000 in particular excels at detecting smoke over very large distances (up to 100 metres). The motorised, reflective, auto aligning infrared system can be installed with up to two detector heads per system, saving on installation time and costs. In addition, each system controller houses two pairs of fire and fault relays, one per detector.

“Receiving this approval is a major milestone for us,” comments FFE’s Managing Director Mark Osborne. “The construction boom in China over recent decades has been phenomenal, with hundreds of thousands of large indoor spaces requiring effective fire safety systems. The Fireray product range is trusted in many parts of the world already and we believe it is perfectly placed to fulfil the specialist detection needs in the Chinese fire market.”

The China Certification Centre for Fire Products (CCCf) is a fire product qualification institution approved and authorized by the Chinese government. Its business scope covers fire product and fire-related product certification and the drafting of codes, standards and detailed regulations.
