Thermocable’s specialist detection technologies further expand the range of devices Apollo offers in the commercial and industrial fire detection markets.
Based in Bradford, UK, Thermocable will become part of Apollo, Halma’s fire detection and alarm company, and will help to keep more people safe from the risk of fire. Thermocable’s technology detects fire risk using temperature sensitive cables, known as Linear Heat Detectors. This technology is particularly suited for use in challenging infrastructure and industrial applications such as tunnels, factories, car parks, and increasingly solar farms.
