The best safety net yet
The LAS-10 is a better maritime fire detection system for the simple reason that it alarms your crew earlier already when there is a credible, serious risk of fire in the engine room. This gives crewmembers more time to react, and it dramatically reduces the risk of a fire actually breaking out and causing costly damage.
Detects dangers you can’t see or smell
Any leakage of hydrocarbon will be detected by LAS-10 Thanks to the high input airflow rate and smart detection technologies, LAS-10 is able to detect risks that no other system – or even a crewmember – can detect. The high airflow rate ensures far more reliable detection than light-scatter and other comparing technologies. The gas sensor detects the presence of gasses that not even the most experienced crewmember can smell. And the filter mesh detects particle diameters down to 5 μm. The system’s unique design and technologies mean it does not require light to operate and finally the system is not affected by human interference / crew members passing by etc.
Smart control and monitoring
The LAS-10 Control Unit provides access to a wide range of adjustable detection and alarm parameters. This Includes individual alarm levels for different volumes of airborne sprays and gasses. The control and monitoring system is fast and accurate, and does not bother operators with false alarms. The control units are equipped with various interfaces and protocols for integration with your existing control systems.
You can’t afford not to...
Given the high cost of an onboard fire – approximately USD 150,000 per minute – the LAS-10 system is a very modest investment and fund a very sound business case – Return on Investment is normally calculated less than 1 year. It protects your passengers, crews, ship, cargo and tonnage, and it protects your business against the risk of operational disruptions and harm to your reputation. The system helps you not just meet, but exceed workplace health and safety regulations, and it can even facilitate early detection of maintenance-related issues, such as exhaust leaks, solvents from painting etc. Even hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from, for example, bilge water will be detected.
