Honeywell has released an in-depth FAAST Aspiration Smoke Detection Applications Guide to aid system integrators, consultants, specifiers and installers during the specification, design, installation, and commissioning process. The guide details aspiration device benefits and application considerations, along with best practices for installation, commissioning and maintenance. It draws on industry codes of practice and guidance from key associations and focuses on the FAAST Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology range. Key applications covered include: Telecoms, Large Open Spaces, Extreme Temperature Locations, Dirty Environments, Transportation Facilities, Historic and Cultural Sites, Ducts & Lift Shafts and many more.

Aspiration Smoke Detection (ASD) — where air is drawn through sampling holes in a pipe network for smoke particulate analysis — has become one of the premier detection methods in challenging applications, due to its adaptability for diverse applications.
