We would like to invite you to be among the first to see our brand new Signaline Brochure for 2017!
The brochure has everything you need for a fire or water detection system from analogue and digital cable, through to control panels and accessory clips.
You’ll find all the details for the two fire detection options in our Signaline HEAT range: the VdS approved Signaline HD analogue system and the UL/FM approved Signaline FT fixed temperature cables.
The detection cables detect heat anywhere along their length and are compatible with both addressable and conventional systems.
Signaline HEAT is ideal for a wide range of applications including car parks, tunnels, cable trays, conveyors and warehousing. Signaline HEAT can also be used in intrinsically safe areas making it suitable for hazardous applications as well.
For water detection, look no further than Signaline WATER which offers a low cost and effective way to detect water ingress and prevent flooding.
The brochure includes details about the Signaline WATER WDM-KM module which can monitor up to 1,000m of Signaline WATER Water Leak Detector and is easily interfaced with BMS and other control systems.
Our linear detectors are 100% manufactured in the UK and they have a wide range of third party approvals from both international organisations and local bodies – a testament to the high quality of the products.
Find out more by downloading the brochure (pdf) or by contacting our sales team.
The Signaline HD SKM-95 and SKM-03 controllers are used with our Signaline HD linear heat detection cable.
They provide early warning of an impending fire by detecting overheating in environments that are difficult to monitor.
Some examples of where Signaline is used can be found here.
Here are the top five things you might not know about our SKM Controllers:
1. IP65 rated
- Providing a higher level of ingress protection ensures reduced maintenance while allowing the controller and sensor cable to be field-mounted in exposed areas.
2. Approved by VdS to EN54 part 5
- LGM strives to only offer products that reach distinguished international standards – the SKM-03 and SKM-95 controllers and Signaline HD and HD-R are approved to EN54 part 5 by VdS.
3. Flexible and easy to install
- The back box can be mounted ‘up’ or ‘down’ and the internal PCB and the front plate can be rotated to match. Additionally, both the SKM-03 and SKM-95 are supplied with an EOL termination box. You’re all set for an easy and quick installation!
4. Low Current Consumption
- Even in alarm state the unit has a low current consumption which means there is no need for extra battery back up on conventional or addressable systems.
5. Compatible with conventional and addressable detection systems
- For conventional systems the SKM-03 is the ideal solution. Whereas if you are using an Apollo addressable XP95 or Discovery loop then the SKM-95 can sit directly on the loop without the need for extra monitor modules!

If you need a linear heat detection solution which is approved to EN54, then Signaline HD is more than just a great option.
In fact, it is the only option currently on the market that is approved for both addressable and conventional fire systems.
Signaline HD is an analogue resettable linear heat detector that monitors significant increases in temperature.
An electronic controller connected to the Signaline HD cable monitors changes in temperature by continually measuring the electrical resistance between the cable’s metallic core and its outer braiding. If a sufficiently high change in temperature is detected, then the controller triggers an alarm.
Our Signaline HD and SKM Controller range is approved by VdS to EN54 part 5 which means any fire system with Signaline HD installed will meet the same standards as a traditional ‘spot’ type heat detector.
This means a Signaline HD linear heat detection system can replace any traditional spot detector system and can be installed in exactly the same way.
Moreover, Signaline HD cable acts as a detector anywhere along its length which means better fire detection coverage.
Linear heat detection cable is also less susceptible to environmental conditions than spot type detectors making it perfect for farm buildings, car parks and a variety of other applications.
For particularly harsh or chemical environments, our Signaline HD-R cable is nylon coated and – rest assured – approved to EN54 as well.
If you want to find out more, contact our sales team, browse the website or download a datasheet for Signaline HD.

The risk of damage to wind turbines from fire is second only to the risk from blade failure according to a recent article in Windpower Engineering and Development.
The risk from fire is significant because wind turbines pose particular fire detection and suppression challenges.
Wind turbines are usually situated in remote locations which means fires can easily go unreported causing substantial damage.
Any fire system must also be able to withstand challenging environmental conditions including fluctuations in weather and temperature, ambient dust and vibrations from the turbine itself.
The article highlights the use of linear heat detection (LHD) as a good method of addressing some of the challenges.
Linear heat detection systems are not affected by air or dust reducing ongoing maintenance to zero. Any other system would have to be cleaned and maintained.
Linear heat detection is also a mechanical – rather than an electrical – alarm system which is activated when the heat sensitive polymer melts. This significantly reduces the power required to operate the system compared with other detection methods.
For wind turbines we would recommend installing Signaline FT – a simple cost-effective solution which is not affected by dust and air temperature fluctuations, requires no ongoing maintenance and would not need its own dedicated power supply.
You can find out more information about Signaline FT on our website, or contact our sales team: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did you know that Signaline offers the only EN54 approved analogue linear heat detection system in the world which is loop powered and addressable?
Our Signaline SKM-95 Controller – approved by VdS – is compatible with Apollo XP95/Discovery addressable systems.
The controller has its own addressing dip switch and is powered directly from the loop. This eliminates the need for loop interfaces or additional power supplies and provides significant cost savings.
Using a Signaline SKM-95 Controller is an ideal way of integrating linear heat detection with large BMS fire systems, such as in a multi-storey car park installation.
Combining the SKM-95 Controller with Signaline HD analogue cable allows you to integrate this part of your fire detection system onto the same loop as other areas of your network. In short, it’s a very efficient and practical form of fire detection.
The SKM-95 Controller is also IP65 rated and comes with an End of Line Unit, making installation extremely simple and efficient.

Designing an effective fire detection system for fuel storage tanks poses particular challenges.
Fuel storage tanks are located in hazardous areas, can be exposed to harsh weather, and often incorporate a ‘floating roof’ which means there is the added complication of a moving structure.
Signaline linear heat detection is an excellent method of protecting fuel tanks from fire and we are keen to meet any challenge faced by our customers.
Where a ‘floating roof’ is part of the design, Signaline’s Retractable Cable is required to connect the Signaline system to the top of the moving tank.
The Retractable Cable extends and retracts as the floating roof moves up and down ensuring that system integrity is maintained.
Normally, Signaline Retractable Cable is supplied with 3 metre flying tails for termination. But on a recent project in Saudi Arabia our customer required unusually long tails for the cable at both ends of the installation.
We were able to supply them with Retractable Cable which included 5 metre tails top and bottom – a bespoke solution which is not readily available on the market.
The Retractable Cable also comes with a Hytrel coating – a thermoplastic material which combines flexibility and excellent durable toughness to ensure that the cable will not be affected by UV light and hazardous gases.
If you are interested in how we can adapt retractable cable to suit your project requirements, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our high quality fixation clips ensure that Signaline detection systems do not cause false alarms and have excellent system integrity. They are also designed to reduce the time and cost of installation.
Our standard metal P Clip is now manufactured in stainless steel which means the clip is resistant to corrosion in salt-laden environments and areas where chemicals are present.
The stainless steel P Clip still benefits from a UV and ozone resistant cushion insulator.
We have also managed to maintain our existing pricing on these new P Clips allowing us to deliver an improved product for the same price.
Unless otherwise stated, all orders will now be fulfilled with the stainless steel clip.
New Plastic P Clip
If metal is not suitable for your application due to heat transfer concerns or is proving unnecessarily costly, we can now offer our customers a new plastic (nylon) P Clip.
The plastic P Clip still has good overall resistance to chemical corrosion and UV rays and can also be used with our water detection cable.

Our Signaline Fixed Temperature linear heat detection cable was recently chosen to protect a conveyor belt system for a cement works in Vietnam.
Cong Thanh Group selected Signaline FT 68 as it offers a low cost fire detection solution for industrial and manufacturing settings.
The linear heat detection cable provides early detection of overheating on the conveyor belt and can be easily removed, replaced or re-positioned during maintenance work.
The cable was integrated with third party fire equipment demonstrating that the Signaline range is a flexible and versatile option for installers.
Signaline linear heat detection cable is being used for the fire protection of Trafalgar Street, multi-storey car park in Brighton, UK.
The system was installed as part of a £4.2m modernisation project of two city centre car parks, which included structural repairs and refurbishment with new power, lighting, security and fire alarm systems.
Trafalgar Street car park operates 24/7 and has a capacity for 275 cars located on two underground levels.
The original fire alarm system consisted of traditional point type detection within the main car park areas. Due to the harsh environment, including corrosive sea air, these were prone to fail or false alarm.
Linear heat detection was specified as part of the refurbishment, as it is designed to operate in challenging environments and requires no ongoing maintenance.
A two-loop analogue addressable fire alarm system was installed with 1,250m of Signaline Fixed Temperature cable, split into 11 zones across the two floors.

The new Terminal 2 Building at Heathrow will serve an estimated 20 million passengers each year after it is completed in 2014.
And travellers will find Signaline linear heat detection beneath their feet if they use one of the terminal’s 18 new escalators.
Signaline HD Stainless Steel was the cable of choice for manufacturer Kone when they selected a fire protection solution for the escalators at the airport.
The linear heat detection cable is coated with a stainless steel braid combining superb mechanical strength with rapid fire detection. The accompanying controller is easily adjusted for any length of cable and the system is also resettable in the event of a fire.
A relay output means that the escalators are quickly closed down when the system goes into alarm to stop a fire spreading.
An effective heat detection system for escalators is a legal requirement after the 1987 King’s Cross fire and Signaline HD Stainless Steel is one of the best solutions.
Signaline HD-S can also be used for a variety of other applications where mechanical protection is paramount such as moving walkways, conveyor belts or industrial machinery.
Signaline linear heat detection has been installed in Ülemiste junction – one of Estonia’s most important and complex road hubs.
As well as connecting the eastern and western sides of Tallinn, the intersection carries traffic between the city centre and the capital’s international airport.
For years the junction has been a bottleneck in this rapidly developing nation but thanks to EU funding it is about to benefit from a major overhaul.
A €80m project will finance the construction of 7.5km of road, new viaducts, signage and lighting, a passageway for non-motorized users, gas and electrical lines, and three new tunnels.
The provision of fire detection in these tunnels was a top priority, but regular point detection can be problematic due to false alarms and difficult maintenance planning.
Signaline FT cable was an ideal alternative with its simple installation and low ongoing maintenance – features which were regarded as vital to the success of the project.
Contractors were also impressed with the fast reaction of Signaline FT and the ease of integration with the tunnel’s complex control systems. The junction is due to be completed by mid-2013.
