Reasons to install a fire alarm system2022-12-08T14:27:55+00:00

A fire alarm system is a crucial part of your building’s fire strategy. It is important to make sure that the system you have meets the British Standards for fire safety, as well as satisfying your fire risk assessment.

Fire alarm systems are the quickest and most reliable way of informing all employees of an emergency situation. The presence of an alarm system can significantly reduce the risk of injuries, fatalities and property damage by providing early warning if a fire breaks out. This allows anyone on the premises more time to react, exit the building safely and alert the authorities before the fire escalates.

Loss of life and property damage has been proven to be minimal when fires are successfully dealt with in the earliest stages. Studies have shown 93% of all fire-related deaths and 95% of all direct property damage occur only after a fire has progressed. Installing an adequate fire alarm system can also help you to meet any legal and insurance obligations. It is required by law that all business premises must have an appropriate fire detection system in order to safeguard their staff. This makes it a crucial decision for business property owners to invest in fire alarm services in order to maintain a high level of safety.

What are the different types of fire alarm systems?2022-12-08T14:28:59+00:00

Conventional
There are three main types of fire alarm systems. Conventional fire alarm systems divide your premises into broad zones. This type of system is most suitable for low-risk environments such as small offices or homes. In the event of an alert, the fire alarm panel can identify the entire zone where the alert came from but will not be able to pinpoint the exact area of the triggered alarm.

Addressable
Addressable fire alarm systems assign each individual device with its own unique electronic address. This makes it easier to identify which device has been triggered and spot the location of a fire if an alarm is active. The system can then quickly notify local responders to take necessary action. These alarms are most suitable for larger and more higher risk areas, such as schools, large offices and hospitals.

Wireless
Wireless fire alarm systems work similarly to addressable fire alarms. Instead of wires, they use a secure wireless link between the sensors and the fire alarm panel. These fire alarms are most suited to premises which would like to avoid using lots of cable for aesthetic reasons, such as historical buildings, museums and religious spaces.
