"Innovations in air-sampling smoke detection" blog enables fire safety community to share expertise and best practices in early warning fire detection

Xtralis, a leading provider of early warning fire detection and security solutions, today announced that it is sponsoring a new fire industry blog dedicated to discussions about air-sampling smoke detection (ASD) technology. The blog, which is geared toward fire safety consultants, engineers, technology distributors and end users, is live today at  

"Even with all of the glossy brochures and magazine articles discussing ASD, there is no better source of information about how this technology can be applied successfully to almost any application than the engineering community, installing contractors and end users themselves," says Kevin Henning of ORR Protection Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ORR Corporation that designs, installs and services fire and explosion protection systems. "The 'Innovations in ASD Blog' will help to demonstrate the value of this proven technology and its superior approach to protecting lives and assets from the earliest threat of fire."

According to Xtralis' Mariann McDonagh, senior vice president of corporate marketing, "For more than 25 years, Xtralis has been the global leader in developing very early warning smoke detection solutions, including Xtralis VESDA - the world's No. 1 brand of air-sampling smoke detector. As such, we feel strongly about creating a community for ASD specifiers, channels and end users to promote best practices in the design, implementation and service of ASD solutions across a myriad of environments." Continues McDonagh, "With this new blog, we will bring together industry experts who are passionate about ASD and early warning fire protection strategies and the technology's broad adoption across local and national governments and industries."
