Conventional Fire Detection & Extinguishing Panel

The ORION-EX conventional fire detection and extinguishing panel offers a creatively designed and aesthetically pleasing solution to satisfy the increasing global demand for dependable fire suppression systems. The ORION-EX is designed and manufactured to comply with EN54-2, EN54-4 and EN12094-1 standards.

The outstanding programmable features included in this panel are best suited to installation in high value housing areas and, more generally, in any areas where loss of equipment can partially or totally disrupt the proper functioning of a business.

Operation is extremely intuitive, offering simple control and one-button disablement facilities, as well as the one man test mode which provides simple and efficient testing of the system.
