Commercial Fire Alarm Servicing & Repair
When choosing your fire alarm system, it's important to keep in mind a number of different aspects which will determine the most appropriate choice that's right for your business. Such aspects may include what your building is used for, e.g. whether it s a residential dwelling or a commercial property. All existing buildings within the UK (except domestic properties) are subject to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) order of 2005. The person who is responsible for the property is also responsible under current legislation in having the appropriate fire risks of the building in question assessed.
Since being established in 2002 we have helped hundreds clients to find the right fire alarm system for their property, and we are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to building structures, and the implications of what that means for the type of fire alarm system that will be installed on your premises.
All fire alarms operate on the basic principle that if a detector detects smoke or heat within a room, or if someone breaks a glass unit at a manual break point, then the alarm will sound and warn other people in the building of the possibility of a fire and to evacuate. On more advanced systems, the incorporation of remote signalling systems can be used to alert the relevant emergency authorities.
Fire alarms are designed, supplied, installed and commissioned to current british standards BS5839 pt1-2013.
Example of some of the types of system we work with: Advanced, Morley, C-Tec, Emergi-lite plus more.
We offer service contracts to maintain systems to current british standards offering call outs/monitoring.
Fire alarms generally fall into four different categories:
Conventional Fire Alarm Systems
With a conventional fire alarm system, many number of call points are linked to different zones within the building. Typically this would be a wired floor or compartment. The control panel for the fire alarm will give a rough indication of where the fire is located.
With an addressable system, it's possible to pinpoint exactly where the fire has started. The accuracy of knowing where a fire has started depends on the number of zones that are linked to the control panel.
Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm Systems
These are often referred to as intelligent fire alarm systems. Several types of analogue addressable fire alarm types are available, and they are determined by the type of protocol that they use. The majority of these systems are fairly basic and rely upon the control panel to decide whether or not a fire has occurred.
Wireless Fire Alarm Systems
Wireless fire alarm systems are a great alternative to the more traditional types of wired fire alarm systems. They make use of wired fire alarm systems by using RF communications to connect devices and sensors together (i.e. call points, smoke detectors etc.) with the controllers. It's a simple concept which adds many benefits of an analogue addressable fire detection system without the need for a wired system.
