Products > Fire Alarm Panel > Conventional Fire Alarm Panel


The main objective of a Fire Alarm System is to detect hazardous scenarios that could damage life, property and resources such as a fire, an explosion, a chemical spill or radiation. It becomes a herculean task to identify and suppress a fire in real-time for any organization without a perpetual fire monitoring and detection system.

Matrix PROPAC Conventional Fire Alarm Panel (CFAP) is a powerful and proactive CFAP, intelligently designed to satisfy all the fire safety requirements for apartments, offices or industries. Its state-of-the-art technology ensures identification of the smallest smoldering event that makes it vital for providing real time response to prevent human and property loss.
