Prodex FIREscape

Unique and networked guidance and multifunction system

Prodex FIREscape fire emergency light system

Two central security systems of a property, the fire alarms and emergency lighting have been integrated as an easy-to-use single solution with its own control panel. The basis for the implementation of the control centre was ease of use: it was designed for the integration of the emergency light system and fire alarm system.  In a crisis, the intelligent system directs the people in the property out of the building along the safest route using guide lights equipped with changing symbols along the escape routes. The system can be networked to create a several centre solution using channel integration.

Prodex FIREscape offers significant cost savings already during planning and installation and throughout its life-cycle; maintenance, service operating costs when compared to traditional implementations. Significant cost savings are also achieved through the use of low-current wires, without forgetting low energy consumption.

The active system monitors everything ranging from the contamination levels of the fire detectors to the condition of the batteries and LEDs in the safety and escape lights. Prodex FIREscape offers users information on the condition of the system in a completely different way than current systems allowing for more targeted service and maintenance activities.

The next-generation fire emergency lighting system is suitable for all types of properties ranging from shopping centres to office buildings, industrial buildings and sites with special requirements. The benefits achieved with the Prodex FIREscape serve both the tenant and the authorities especially well in a crisis, due to their diverse range of functions. The system’s fire alarm system, fire detectors and emergency lighting fulfil the EN54 requirements and the emergency lights fulfil the EN standards set for them including standard EN50172.

Once centre, one wiring – two systems
The user-friendly combo centre includes its own guiding menu structure for emergency lights and fire alarms. The user is therefore able to operate either the emergency light or fire alarm mode with more ease.
Cost-efficient throughout its life-cycle
Prodex FIREscape offers significant cost savings already during planning and installation and throughout its life-cycle including the low-current wiring; maintenance, service operating costs when compared to traditional implementations.
Light, cost-efficient wiring
Does not require fireproof wire systems. Allows for easy expansion and is excellently suited also for demanding sites. The wiring can be implemented discreetly and with ease, which results in cost-efficiency.
Environmentally friendly
The addressable Neptolux safety and escape route lights achieve up to 90 % lower energy consumption than a traditional emergency lighting system equipped with central batteries. The power consumption of the system is very low.
Additional security with guide lights with changing symbols
In a crisis, the intelligent system directs the people in the property out of the building along the safest route using indicator lights equipped with changing symbols along the escape routes.
Allows fire detectors and emergency lights to be replaced in phases and using a diverse range of options
The replacement of the property’s fire alarm and emergency light system can be easily implemented in phases using the Prodex FIREscape starting with the system that is to be replaced first.

Prodex FIREscape is a Finnish, responsible choice as the property’s automatic fire alarm and emergency light system. The FIREscape multi-function centre's intelligent, energy-efficient and stylish design stands alone in its class. The system’s energy-efficiency is top-notch.

The foundation of the easy-to-use Prodex FIREscape is the multi-function control panel, which combines the fire alarm and emergency lighting systems into a single solution using the same wiring and monitoring. The basis for the implementation of the control centre was ease of use: it was designed for the integration of the emergency light system and fire alarm system. The centre is also well suitable as just a fire or an emergency light system centre. It is easier to plan and implement the replacement of the property’s fire alarm and emergency light system, as a single system can be used to replace two systems in the desired manner and schedule.

The multi-control centre is modular, which allows effortless and easy site-specific tailoring during implementation. The centre comes standard with one integrated addressed line.  The centre can be expanded with addressable and/or conventional line cards. The centre has comprehensive connections; using channel integration, the centres can be used to create a several centre solution

In the design phase, the Prodex FIREscape can be specified with new technology changing symbol guide lights, which indicate the safest escape route with green guide symbols and unsafe routes with red X symbols. The aforementioned advance the evacuation flow and increase safety as they direct people out of the building along the safest routes. The system fulfils the set EN 54 standards and standards EN 50172 and EN 62034 ATS.

The design of the lights and the fire alarm systems affect the general appearance and architecture of a space and these factors should be considered when drafting the plan. The lights and fire detectors can also be colour-matched with the requirements of the site, if necessary. Recessed installation of guide and emergency light systems is also possible.

Planning the wiring is easy without having to plan fireproof wiring systems
The fire detectors, emergency lights and guide lights on the same line – shared loop wiring
Precise control planning with individual addresses
The control can be programmed by layers or areas, for example
Up to 12 FIREscape centres can be networked to the same channel
The addressable guide and emergency lights and fire detectors use the same base
Additional security with guide lights with changing symbols
Operational reliability and long-lasting system

Guide lights with changing symbols improve evacuation efficiency

muuttuvasymbolinen opastevalo

The guide lights with changing symbols indicate the safest escape route with normal green symbols and the less safe routes with red X symbols. The aforementioned advance the evacuation flow and increase safety as they direct people out of the building along the safest routes.

Directing to and using the safest escape route reduces smoke damage and injuries and prevents a potential fire from spreading. Avoiding a door along on unsafe escape route from being opened prevents harmful smoke from spreading from one fire compartment to another. Escaping through a smoke-filled area, such as a stairwell, should be avoided, because smoke gases are life-threatening and quickly render a person unconscious (Ministry of Interior / Rescue Services 2018).
