Emergency Break Glass

Break glass units are used on all fire systems and raise the alarm manually when someone forcibly breaks the white glass or plastic. Most of the time, they are installed in exits, corridors, landings, near high risk areas (such as cookers and kitchens), and fire escapes.

The glass works to protect the fire alarm from accidental activations. However, these alarms are activated by a pressure switch, which is why glass is incorporated into the trigger. When the glass fails or breaks, the switch will be triggered, the signal will be sent to the alarm panel, and the sound will go off.

A fire alarm system that meets national standards is now mandatory. Install one of our break glass units listed below to your business to make sure your building is safe and adheres to policies accordingly.
