Think all smoke detectors are created equal? Think again. Most react only to high concentrations of smoke or heat in a certain area - which may be enough to alert you to a fire, but is too late to stop it from doing major damage.

The fact is that when it comes to fire, every second counts. TITANUS® is a very early smoke detection apparatus (VESDA) that gives you the head start you need. Our highly sensitive air sampling systems offer aspirating smoke detection (ASD) at the earliest possible stages - without false alarms.

What are the early stages of a fire? Before a fire erupts into flame, there are a number of stages where early detection can play a critical role. TITANUS® detects them all:

Through high response sensitivity, continuous air sampling and a graded alarm-activation system, TITANUS® ensures detection at even the earliest stage of fires - giving you back those critical seconds needed to react.

A crucial head start - when it counts most

How It Works

TITANUS® leverages optical air sampling smoke detectors with HPLS (High Power Light Source) technology for early fire detection, taking continuous samples of the ambient air and analyzing them for the smallest traces of smoke particles. High sensitivity calibration and advanced technology ensure accuracy and prevent against false alarms.

Areas of application

Transformer stations

Independently operated transformer stations require fire protection that will detect fires automatically and as quickly as possible. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors offer the earliest possible fire detection, giving operators the time they need to suppress fires early on. Remote equipment diagnostics are possible as well. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Hotels

Personal protection is the number-one priority here. At the same time, though, it is important the fire protection installations be visually unobtrusive, so that room aesthetics are not affected and guests can put any potential hazards out of mind. Highly sensitive TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors not only eliminate all fire danger by reliably detecting even the smallest traces of smoke, but are also practically invisible and very quiet. The patented ROOM∙IDENT function provides cost-effective monitoring of up to five individual rooms using just one detection unit. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Archives, museums and libraries

Archives, museums and libraries house unique, irreplaceable works, so they require particularly extensive fire protection. High-sensitivity TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors detect fires as quickly as possible, when they are still in the incipient stage, so that appropriate action can be taken immediately. Hidden pipe-system installations and low-noise air sampling smoke detectors ensure that the monitored room is not negatively effected visually or acoustically. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Hospitals and care homes

When fires break out in care facilities, every second counts so that sick and elderly people can be evacuated in time. It is especially important to have enough time to carry mobility-impaired or bedridden patients to safety or push them out in wheelchairs. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors detect fires early on, giving personnel what may prove to be a lifesaving head start. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Office buildings

Protecting personnel is the number-one priority in office fire protection. Sensitive TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors provide a crucial head start in detecting fires, so that buildings can be evacuated in plenty of time and the fire can be extinguished quickly. These air sampling smoke detectors can even reliably detect pyrolysis gases resulting from electrical defects. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Rail transit

Protecting people, preventing operational interruptions, and protecting investments, assets and infrastructure are all crucial aspects of railway fire protection. High-sensitivity TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors offer reliable early fire detection, so if a fire does occur, there is plenty of time to evacuate the premises and fight the fire.. Fire alarm technology is hidden and thus practically invisible, which also protects it from vandalism. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Automated high-bay storage facility

Buildings 30 metres or more in height, product flows centralised within gigantic logistics centres, and investment-heavy intra-logistics systems: from a fire-engineering point of view, automated high-bay warehouses carry a great deal of fire risk. Early detection using TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors gives operators a crucial head start when fires occur, enabling them to take immediate action. Air sampling smoke detectors also make fire inspections a straightforward process, with no need to interrupt operations, because they do away with the need for numerous individual point-type detectors and can be placed in easily accessible locations, such as on the front side of a storage rack.

Deep freeze storage facilities

Cold, dry air means that materials stored have very low absolute moisture levels, creating an increased risk of fire. Moreover, even the smallest amounts of smoke can render stored food products unfit for human consumption and sale. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors can detect fires while they are still in the incipient stage, so that they can be suppressed immediately.

Clean rooms

Active air sampling allows reliable smoke detection despite high-velocity forced air flows. Samples are taken from the room’s exhaust ventilation, ensuring that production-area air remains free of contamination. Air sampling smoke detector maintenance and service personnel can work on the system without entering the clean room. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors are up to 2,000 times more sensitive than point-type smoke detectors, so they can reliably detect fire smoke even in clean rooms’ extremely diluted air. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Data centres

Data centre operators’ number-one priority—the standard they aim to uphold—is to ensure maximum continuous availability of data and computing capacity. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors can detect emerging fires early on, so that operational downtime can be prevented. TITANUS® devices also feature network interface card slots and Ethernet connections so that alarm and malfunction messages can be transmitted directly to the data centre management system. That way, if a pre-alarm is signalled, it can trigger automatic backups of all data, in order to prevent data loss—particularly if power is cut. The internationally recognised "SNMP" (Simple Network Management Protocol) standard has been integrated into the TITANUS® network solution especially for IT areas. This allows IT personnel to be notified immediately of any malfunction or fire incidents within the monitored area. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

EDP systems

Availability is the number-one priority for EDP systems, as they are crucial to all communications and business processes. WAGNER provides solutions for EDP systems with weak or strong ventilation. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors can detect cable breaks or other fires resulting from electrical defects, so that counteractive measures can be taken immediately. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Production and manufacturing facilities

Protecting personnel and large open industrial and manufacturing areas from fires poses major challenges. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors detect fires early on, so appropriate action can be taken right away. These air sampling smoke detectors are also suitable for use in extreme conditions, such as very dusty or dirty environments, as they are highly secure against false alarms thanks to external dust filters and patented LOGIC·SENS fire pattern recognition technology. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Conveyor belts

The pipe system is laid on the conveyor belt frame construction, and uses active air sampling along the entire conveyor system to guarantee reliable detection even under changing climate conditions. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Lifts

Lifts are not hermetically sealed spaces. Rubbish can fall through cracks into the shaft, where lit cigarettes or electrical defects can ignite it quickly. Installing TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors in lifts ensures that fires will be detected quickly, before smoke concentration reaches critical levels. Acting quickly can save lives. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Recycling plants

Dirt and dust make recycling plants a challenge for fire protection systems. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors provide reliable early fire detection. Air sampling smoke detection system sensitivity can be adapted to individual recycling plant circumstances using different operating modes and programmable background contamination variables. Thanks to graduated filter technology, fire pattern recognition, and a choice of manual or automatic systems to blow pipe systems free, TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors provide maximum security against false alarms. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Saunas

TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors do not negatively affect sauna appearance, so they can monitor sauna areas reliably while preserving their “feel-good” aesthetic. Heat and condensing moisture have no effect on the air sampling smoke detectors’ reliability and efficacy. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.

Prisons

Personal protection is the number-one priority here. It is also important that fire protection systems remain hidden, so that there is no chance of them being vandalised. Highly sensitive TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors not only eliminate all fire danger by reliably detecting even the smallest traces of smoke, but are also practically invisible and very quiet. The patented ROOM∙IDENT function provides cost-effective monitoring of up to five individual rooms using just one detection unit. Currently, TITANUS® is only approved for the application in storage and logistics. If you want information on other TITANUS® applications, please contact us.
