Where there is smoke, there will be fire. Fire detection systems can identify the early warning signs of fire, even before flames themselves are present. Torvac’s fire detection systems are critical in being able to stamp out a potentially damaging fire before it takes hold.

At Torvac we design, install and maintain our fire detection technologies to work in sync with your procedures for fire suppression activation and equipment shutdown.

Our smoke, thermal and flame detection systems, including the AlgoRex by Siemens, each utilise technologies such as ionisation, ultraviolet, infrared and linear heat detection to rapidly identify any fire-related threat to your business or building.

AlgoRex® – foolproof early fire detection

Celebrated back in 1994 as a world first, it soon conquered the globe. Foolproof early fire detection filled everyone with awe and soon proved itself in practice. Today, millions of users depend on AlgoRex completely. Present AlgoRex installations are readily retrofitted with new algorithms when they are put to a different use.

Another innovation is TeleRex®, the wireless fire detection system. As reliable as hardwired fire detectors, it is the perfect answer for museums and buildings of historic significance.

Case Study


 Torvac install fire detection to protect the animals at the RSPCA…

Torvac were contacted by the RSPCA to handle the design and installation of an Addressable Automatic Fire Detection and Occupant Warning System at the Yagoona shelter, to make sure their staff and the animals have early detection and warning in the event of fire.

The new RSPCA Sydney Shelter (Yagoona) is the largest animal shelter in the southern hemisphere, caring for 900 dogs and 200 cats. The Sydney shelter is also home to a variety of other animals including birds, rabbits, mice, sheep, cattle, goats, horses, pigs, guinea pigs, chickens and ducks.

Over the past three years Torvac have worked closely with the RSPCA in expanding their fire system including the latest Stage 1 development of the Yagoona shelter. The Yagoona shelter is fitted with a brand new veterinary hospital and is an extremely busy environment which made programming the installation works a critical item in the successful and satisfactory delivery of the project.

Torvac thank the staff of the RSPCA for working with us and we look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.
