Fire Systems

Often not considered or thought about, fire safety has become part of everyday life. However, having the appropriate fire system in place is important, whether it commercial or a domestic property, fire safety is a legal requirement, and often there is a lot more to consider then simply just getting an alarm.

For homeowners, whilst the requirements are less rigid, there is still fire safety that needs to be in place within your home. Such as monoxide and smoke detectors.

What you need to know

Fire safety is paramount for the safety of your premises, tenants, staff and customers, that is why there are strict guidelines that must be fulfilled. Failure to do so, can result in huge fines and worse, closures and jail-time in some extreme circumstances. As with any regulation some buildings and industries require more fire safety measures then others, this may include fire alarms, emergency lighting and automatic open vent systems (AOV). 

To ensure these are in place and operational, inspections and risk assessments are carried under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which covers general and mandatory fire safety in England and Wales. And are assisted by governing bodies for compliance by institutions such as; CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme). 

As there are lots to consider when it comes to your fire systems and fire safety, to help we have created a list of not only the fire systems that we can design and install for you, but for you to review against your needs and requirements, they are: 

  • Fire Detection Systems
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Smoke and monoxide detection
  • AOV Systems

Consider different options

Fire safety has evolved over the past couple of decades and today there are more intricate and complex systems to choose from. This is dependent upon the fire risk and budget. 

  • Conventional – Ideal for small property and a limited budget.
  • Addressable – Typically suited to a larger property were there is a higher risk and the fire location needs to be identified sooner.

Next you will need to consider the type of fire alarm you want fitted, currently there are 4 main choices: 

  • Optical
  • Ionization
  • Heat
  • Carbon Monoxide

Each device detects fires in a  different way, and a mixture of devices could be more suitable to meet your requirements. Once you have settled on the right type of fire system, you will need to begin looking at emergency lighting and AOV systems as well.
