THE INDUSTRY LEADER IN LINEAR HEAT DETECTION SINCE 1938

Cold Storage

Protectowire CTI series linear heat detectors provide the most dependable fire detection option for cold storage applications. Our CTI series linear heat detector is based on thermocouple technology and uses multi-criteria detection to eliminate false alarms and assures only heat-activated alarms are reported. Most refrigerated and cold storage warehousing facilities are double interlocked pre-action systems, which makes the CTI series an ideal detector for this type of suppression system.

When used as a detector in double interlock pre-action sprinkler systems, Protectowire linear heat detectors are typically installed at the ceiling and in the racks at every level of sprinkler piping. The detector has been specifically designed for harsh cold environments. Our XLT jacketed linear heat detectors are rated to -60°F (-51°C).

Self-Storage Units

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. Protectowire control panels and interface modules offer alarm point location. This technology identifies the location of an overheat (in feet or meters) confirming the location to a specific cubicle or storage unit. Protectowire linear heat detector’s low maintenance requirements allow for a simple system test procedure, eliminating the need to unlock each storage space during inspection, testing and maintenance (ITM) of your fire alarm system.
