Geofire: Holding Back the Fires
Monday, 23 November 2015 | Admin
When it comes to playing with fire, we at Care Alarms know how to not get burned. Or rather, Geofire and their new range do.
Whether it is a fire door holder or a fire alarm pillow pad, Geofire have a range of products designed to stop the sparks flying and to keep us all safe in our homes. Geofire are providing solutions to problems you might not be aware of. For instance: did you know it is illegal to prop open a fire door? Neither did we!
Unless, of course, you are using one of the Geofire Fire Door products so you know the door will close at the sound of the fire alarm. But only at the sound of your alarm, mind you. Nothing else runs the risk of triggering the mechanism due to the new “Listen and Learn” technology integrated into the devices.
Sounds pretty hot, doesn’t it? Geofire are on top of their game when it comes to developing devices to ensure safety in the event of a fire, from the door closers to a pillow pad alarm system to alert those who are hard of hearing to an alarm.
Who are Geofire?
Geofire were established back in 1972 and have since grown due to the number of different devices they have produced to help combat fires. Rather than developing the same alarms that other companies come out with, Geofire instead focus on electromagnetic activation devices, going one step further than other companies.
Geofire started out in England, but now have offices scattered across the globe. Fires are not restricted to one part of the world, neither are the problems that come with them. Geofire is part of the Stephen Gobbin company, which is in turn part of the British Engines group with over 1200 people employed. That is a lot of people putting their heads together to come out with new innovative designs that allow products to do clever things without us telling them to.
Geofire have plans for the future. Big plans. Plans involving more efficient cellular manufacturing and state of the art CNC technology. Not only does this hold a lot of promise for new products, but also the improvements for the old.
"Listen and Learn": The technology that learns the sound of your alarm
Geofire aren’t happy with setting up a system that could be triggered by more than one thing. Instead, they have their products tuning into the exact frequency of your fire alarm. Only when the devices hear this alarm will they be triggered, reducing the risk of false closures (when it comes to doors) or false alarms (when it comes to…well, alarms!).
It is no surprise they are ideal for use in a community building with this level of technology.
