Xtralis received a Special Jury Award for its Open-area Smoke Imaging Detector (OSID) at Expoprotection 2012, held December 4-7 in Paris, France. A jury consisting of market experts, journalists, end users, and consultants presented Xtralis with the Special Jury Award in the Fire Fighting Sector.

OSID was the only smoke detector to win an award at the show. This special recognition reinforces the unparalleled technological innovation, design, and reliability of OSID. The award is the 16th award won by Xtralis worldwide in recent years and the 7th for OSID since its debut in 2010.

Thousands of installations worldwide

“Protecting lives and assets and solving the smoke detection challenges in  open areas is no small task, and we work every day with our customers to deploy innovative solutions with the Xtralis reliability they depend on,” said Ghassan Habelrih, Executive VP of Xtralis Early Detection Solutions. “Since its release in 2010, OSID has thousands of installations worldwide, and its growth is phenomenal. The awards and global acceptance of OSID speaks volumes for the reliability and performance of the system, but the customer base growth is the validation and real prize,” he added.

Trade fair for Risk Management

Expoprotection is the only event in France that brings together top international specialists and the most innovative equipment and solutions, and combines conferences and meeting areas covering the two complementary universes dedicated to Risk Prevention and Management. Xtralis exhibited at the event with a 56 m2 booth featuring its entire line of early & reliable detection solutions and remote visual verification portfolio, including the OSID, VESDA, ICAM, ADPRO, and HeiTel brands.

More efficient with dual-light frequencies

Specially designed for open spaces, OSID is an innovation in early smoke detection technology. OSID overcomes the weaknesses of traditional beam detectors through the use of dual-light frequencies − ultraviolet and infrared. This innovation enables a distinction to be made between real smoke and intruding objects, while reducing the number of false alarms or unjustified disturbances that can be caused by building movement, insects, birds, effects of condensation, dust or light reflections.
