Beam Detectors for Bollywood
28 of British company Fire Fighting Enterprises’ Fireray reflective beam detectors have been installed across 8 Adlabs Films cinema complexes in India, by regional distributor Code Red Electronics and Security Systems. A further 7 Adlabs cinema projects are expected to follow suit, requiring another 30 detectors.
Adlabs Films Ltd. is India’s fastest growing film entertainment company, and runs the largest Indian cinema chain – BIG Cinemas, with nearly 400 screens across the subcontinent, Malaysia and the U.S. In the year to come, more than 30 million people are expected to watch a film in one of the company’s theatres, and it is naturally of vital importance to safely protect them in the event of a fire. To that end, 8 F100R and 20 F50R Fireray units are now protecting the Lakshmi, Alankar, Ganesh, KS, Nagalaskhmi, Keerthana Ramana, Prakash Kailiash and Majesty Theatres, all in the south-eastern region of Tamilnadu.
FFE’s reflective beam products were selected for these installations due to their proven reliability, easy maintenance and installation, and exceptional coverage range in large indoor areas – the wide, high ceilings of the cinema screens would take many, many point detectors to protect effectively. One Fireray F100R can safely detect smoke over an area of 1500m2 – 100m x 15m, 7.5m laterally either side of the beam; it would take at least 14 point detectors to cover that same space.

The Fireray 5000 Auto Alignment Beam Detector from Fire Fighting Enterprises (FFE) has received ULC approval, certifying its compliance with the safety guidelines of the Canadian Underwriters Laboratories Inc. This is the first and only motorized, auto align, self correcting beam smoke detector to receive UL, and now ULC, approval.
Designed to provide wide-area smoke detection in large indoor spaces, the Fireray 5000 incorporates AGC (Automatic Gain Compensation) to monitor and react to environmental changes such as dust accumulation. Its Auto-Optimize feature automatically self corrects, ensuring alignment of the infra-red beam with the reflective prism, even in the event of gradual building movement. The need for risky and time consuming re-alignment and maintenance from atop ladders or lifts is eliminated.
The beam can be fully adjusted, controlled and annually tested from the low-level system controller. A built in Laser Pointer for simplified prism placement; 2 conductor wiring between the detector and controller; and a complete line of accessories reduce the time, effort and expense of installation.
The Fireray 5000 is stocked, ready to ship, from FFE’s new Kentucky distribution center. To request a demonstration or discuss possible beam detection applications, contact the US sales office (firstname.lastname@example.org; 940-271-0435), or visit the company’s website, www.ffeuk.com.
