Carrier have a new “low cost” IR flame detector solution for the external protection of buildings, including potential risks from exterior cladding, as well as other key risks.


  • Building Facades
  • Atriums
  • Hangers & Aerospace
  • Theatres
  • Churches
  • Industrial & Retail Kitchens
  • Warehouses
  • Engine Rooms
  • Waste Storage & Recycling Plants
  • General outdoor applications

Facade has been developed to meet these risks at a cost which is surprisingly low compared to other flame detection products on the market.

With a fast detection time, Facade will detect a fire at a 25-metre distance within 8-10 seconds giving vital warning of an event at the earliest opportunity. Crucially this sensitivity has been developed using technology that recognises the signature in flames and therefore is highly resilient to other types of environmental events that might lead to unwanted alarms.

Facade is easy and simple to deploy and comes complete with mounting bracket and hardware.

Key features include:

  • EN54-10 & EN54-17
  • Up to 20 metre coverage per detector
  • Solar resistant – Recognises signature in flames to reduce the possibility of unwanted alarms
  • IP rated for environmental protection
  • Sensitivity settings to meet any application and situation
  •  Fast detection
  • Addressable (using Autronica CIE) or conventional mode for integration into any fire system
  • Includes mounting bracket and environmental protection cover

Facade is fast, low cast yet highly effective and should be a consideration as part of your solution and fire protection scheme.
