Every home or business has the potential for a fire to start
If you are a business owner you are required to have a full risk assessment carried out by law. This will highlight potential weak areas or obstacles in case of a fire and will help make the right decisions on what type of fire system to install.
When a fire starts you want a system that detects smoke immediately therefore family members, staff or visitors are alerted so they can exit the building quickly and safely.
Fire Detection Systems Explained
There are many systems available on the market. The most basic being single detectors that will only sound if there is a fire in that room. The more sophisticated system may have 2, 3 or more detectors linked together. If one detector goes is activated then the others will sound notifying people that there is a fire in the building.
Most sophisticated systems not only have detectors linked together throughout the building but can for example be interfaced to fire doors that close, smoke vents that open and notify the Fire Brigade by calling them for immediate assistance.
A correctly installed system will alert you and any visitors as soon as a fire starts, enabling a speedy and safe evacuation from the building.
Our experienced surveyors will spend time assessing your property in terms of fire and fire prevention.
Alarms need to be heard through doors and in areas especially where machinery is in use.
Areas such as disabled toilets need the correct beacons that will flash in the event of a fire alerting the hard of hearing that they need to exit the building.
Fire systems can be linked seamlessly with other security measures you may already have in place such as access control systems so that staff can exit the building safely without entering codes or swiping cards.
