Tyco Integrated Fire & Security has launched Profile Flexible, its most advanced range of modular fire alarm panels. Made to enhance the existing Zettler Profile family of touch screen panels, the new controllers offer a range of innovations and benefits to deliver improved fire safety for all typical building engineering applications and challenges.

The design of the Zettler Profile Flexible fire alarm control panel makes it suitable for any industry or environment. Its modular format means it can be expanded quickly and cost effectively, matching changes in fire safety strategies as might be demanded by the evolution of smart buildings, for example. The range combines high fire safety performance and zero false alarm tolerance, with lifetime cost benefits.
Peter Lackey, UK Fire Product Manager at Tyco said, “Speed and accuracy are critical in protecting people, assets and valuable infrastructure from fire. Our customers demand an alert system that is reliable even in the harshest of environments but also cost effective to run. They need a system that can intelligently identify if an incident is real or a false alarm to minimise disruption to their day-to-day operation.”
“In Profile Flexible, Tyco has developed a fire control panel that controls and manages the environment, which the installed system is protecting,” he concluded. “By investing in advanced, future proof technology, instead of cables and labour, customers can enjoy state-of-the-art fire safety and reap significant savings in operational and maintenance costs.”
The Zettler Profile Flexible fire alarm control panel’s modular design means it can be tailored to specific building and user requirements, whether that be a harsh industrial space or high-end corporate office environment.
It is flexible enough to allow for expansion and adaptations to be made quickly, easily and cost effectively as business needs evolve. The slot card arrangement offers up to 50 different design options to build the most economical and effective system.
The panels can also be used as part of a network or as a standalone product. The network capacity seamlessly supports a massive potential of 396,000 addresses. Users can benefit from a reliable network that is large enough to suite all types of locations, from transport hubs to distribution centres.
The intuitive full colour touch screen and multilingual user interface enables straightforward, one-touch operation. This reduces the need for extensive training and enables faster response times in the event of an emergency. The aesthetically pleasing design blends into any environment, eliminating the need for the panel to be within an enclosure.
