Apollo Launches New VADs to Complement its EN 54-23 Approved Range

Apollo Fire Detectors, the world-leading independent fire detector manufacturer, has added to its range of products with the launch of their new visual alarm devices (VADs).

The devices have been created by Apollo’s specialised in-house design team, with two available in the ceiling category, a C-3-8.5 and a C-3-15 VAD, and one wall category W-2.5-7 VAD available to compliment the open category VAD’s in this range.

The new VADs run on Apollo’s existing XP95 and Discovery digital protocols. For ease of installation, these loop powered VADs are mounted on the ceiling and wall using Apollo’s first fix base.

The new VADs utilise a white flash colour, and are available in red and white body variants.  To ensure that the devices meet and surpass the EN 54-23 standard, Apollo has specifically designed and developed a range of highly efficient lenses.  Apollo’s extensive in-house testing facilities has enabled its engineers to make accurate simulations and perform real-world testing.

Head of Product Management at Apollo, Charles Smith, said: “Our new VADs build upon Apollo’s focus on pioneering technology, backed up with our emphasis on reliability.  Our Hemi anechoic chamber allows us to perform light coverage volume testing on all our VAD products and produce a 3D plot of the coverage volume, meaning our customers can have total confidence in our products.”
