Zonecheck Addressable

Automated sprinkler system
testing and monitoring.

The only approved fire sprinkler alarm, monitoring and automated testing system.

Take complete control of your sprinkler system with our Zonecheck Addressable system. The only approved, smart, life safety system that monitors and manages your sprinkler system remotely. The system instantly notifies you of the location of any fire or faults and automates your testing routine and brings peace of mind for monitoring, testing, and code compliance.

Zonecheck Addressable is the only approved fire sprinkler alarm, monitoring and automated testing system. It utilises the latest state-of-the-art technology to provide a smart fire strategy for a building’s sprinkler system. The system gives building owners/tenants the ability to monitor and manage sprinkler system components, alerting you of any specific faults and locations via the controller.

How it Works

From the controller you can program a building’s flow-switch testing routine. Testing can be carried out automatically in the background or at the touch of a button with the addition of printed test record and internal memory log, providing peace of mind for code compliance.

The controller can also differentiate a fire condition signal from a test (‘soft testing’), enabling testing to be carried our independently of other auxiliary equipment e.g. smoke vents, fire doors and escalators, isolating and eliminating the risk of false alarms. This allows a sprinkler system to be effectively managed from one central location without the need to organise third parties or contractors to carry out testing.

Every sprinkler component installed on the loop is consistently being monitored via the IMMs e.g. flowswitches, zone valves, trance heating, pump house, relaying information to and from the controller, something that other addressable systems simply cannot do.

All managed components stay fully code compliant. Full pass/fail test and event log provided.

Easily integrated into a building’s fire alarm system or BMS.

System Components
Zonecheck

Automatic flow-switch tester, circulates water around the flow-switch so there is no need to discharge water.

Zone Valve

The IMM has the ability to connect to other auxiliary equipment such as a local zone valve and monitor for the correct position.

Intelligent Monitoring Module

Each Zonecheck requires its own IMM. IMM’s initiate testing and can also monitor auxiliary equipment such as local zone valves, trace heating, smoke vents and pump house signals, relaying its status to the controller.

Controller & Printer

Every IMM is wired in a looped system back to the controller. From here you can manage the entire addressable system. An optional LED identification (IDENT) panel is available, utilising an intelligent link from our addressable controller.

Approvals

The system is approved to UL 346, meaning the controller, IMMs and Zonechecks are approved as a system for testing and monitoring flow-switches. Zonecheck Addressable also complies with key principles of life safety codes and is compliant to BS EN 12845 & BS EN 12259-5 standards.

What is an IMM?
Close Icon

IMM stands for Intelligent Monitoring Module. Each Zonecheck has its own IMM. The IMM can initiate a local flow-switch test, receive inputs from the local flow-switch and zone valve and has an ‘auxiliary out’ fire connection. Every IMM is wired into a looped system that connects to the controller.

Is Zonecheck Addressable approved?
Close Icon

Zonecheck is approved by LPCB, UL, FM and VdS (as well as other local approvals), Zonecheck Addressable as an entire system has also been approved by UL.

Can other equipment be monitored via Zonecheck Addressable?
Close Icon

Yes, Zonecheck Addressable has been designed to accept signals from other equipment such as Gemini, Bellcheck, trace heating modules, pump house signals and additional stop valves.

Is Zonecheck Addressable compatible with other panels/systems such as BMS?
Close Icon

Yes. Zonecheck Addressable is specifically compatible with Kentec Syncro fire panels and BMS systems using the SCADA Modbus protocols but can be used with most all panels and systems in other ways. Please talk to one of the technical team at Project Fire for more information.

ZONECHECK RESIDENTIAL

Sprinkler system testing for the home at the flick of a switch.

Testing with no disruption to tenants.

Zonecheck is simply the easiest way to carry out flow-switch testing. It has been installed in commercial buildings world-wide, providing an easy and efficient way of maintaining code compliance. As we move to a more stringent and sustainable approach to our homes, our residential products aim to offer cost-effective, simple, sprinkler testing solutions for multistorey residential properties.

SPRINKLER TESTING FOR THE HOME
Sprinkler systems save lives as well as property, however, they do require regular testing to ensure that they work properly. Traditionally, up to 100 litres of drinking water is wasted (discharged to a local drain) for every flow-switch test. Zonecheck can perform this test quickly and efficiently without wasting a drop of water. Our solution enables the end-user to be able to efficiently test each flow-switch without the need to drain water, or even inform occupants that there is any maintenance work being carried out, all at the flick of switch (or fully automated as a part of our addressable system). It is vital that this test is done to be sure that the efficacy of the sprinkler system isn’t comprised.

System Benefits

Keep operational costs down with Zonecheck’s efficient method of routine testing and reduced facilities management.

Carry out testing with a turn of a key or fully automated via our addressable system.

Flow-switch testing can be carried out by building maintenance services with no disruption for tenants.

Designed specifically for easy installation into smaller residential risers and voids.

There is no water is discharged from the system during flowswitch testing when using Zonecheck.

Zonecheck can be integrated into a building’s fire alarm system or BMS*.

Featured FAQs

What is Zonecheck Residential?

Close Icon

Zonecheck Residential is simply a smaller version of our Zonecheck unit designed for residential applications. The unit is still made up of an approved flow-switch and circulation line to allow for easy and sustainable flow-switch testing in accordance with residential sprinkler code standards. When the pump is activated, water flows through the flow-switch in a closed loop which activates the flow-switch using water at an appropriate flow-rate with no water being discharged.

Is Zonecheck Residential approved?

Close Icon

Yes. Although no approval is generally required for automatic fire sprinkler products in residential buildings, our galvanised units are LPCB approved and our CPVC units have been certified by Warrington Fire.

Can Zonecheck Residential be made addressable?

Close Icon

Yes. With the addition of a Zonecheck Addressable Controller, Zonecheck Residential can be connected to IMMs to form an addressable system which can perform remote and automatic testing and monitoring of flow-switches in larger or mixed-use residential buildings. Zonecheck Addressable has many other advantages such as the ability to monitor zone valves,  provide printed test records and monitor other equipment. For more information please see our Zonecheck Addressable page.

How do you carry out a test with Zonecheck Residential?

Close Icon

Zonecheck Residential has three options for testing. Firstly, our mini-switch offers a no-frills approach with simple on-off functionality, our regular Zonecheck key-switch offers additional security, feedback and grouping features and finally, Zonecheck Residential is also fully compatible with our Zonecheck Addressable technology.

Is Zonecheck Residential available in different configurations?

Close Icon

Yes, there are many options. First of all there is the choice between galvanised steel and CPVC plastic. All our units are available in left and right handed versions but the CPVC versions are also available in two different form formats, one for riser spaces where the unit will be installed vertically and one for void spaces where the unit will be installed horizontally. The idea of these formats is to save valuable space, please download our data sheet for more information. Furthermore, our CPVC versions come with either a standard drain valve or full-sized drain valve and a pressure gauge.
