Fire Detection Alarm TI Security

Fire detection systems and alarms

When it comes to detection systems, you have a legal responsibility to prove that it’s effective and compliant, and that it’s been installed, commissioned and maintained by trained contractors.

All commercial, public and multiple-occupancy premises must install ‘fit for purpose’ detection systems to ensure that their staff and visitors are protected in case of a fire. TI Security has over 48 years of experience dealing with this essential issue, designing and installing quality systems and updating existing systems to ensure the highest safety standards.

Changes in law have seen the responsibility from the Fire and Rescue Services, into the hands of the designated ‘responsible person’, nominated by the manager of the property in question. We work closely with your representative to identify the most appropriate detection system and preventative measures, with all of our products meeting the latest British and European standards.

What type of detection system is right for my business?

A simple fire alarm isn’t enough to protect your business; but you need to consider the size and type of premises, and your individual circumstances. Our consultants will ensure that you get the right system for your needs, but the main elements that make up effective fire safety solutions include items such as:

Fire alarms – these come in a variety of styles, with varying capabilities. The main categories are:

  • Conventional/basic – include detectors and call points across different zones/circuits, which correlate to different floors/areas
  • Addressable system – similar to the above, but with more capabilities for accurate detection; so if a short circuit occurs, it will only shut down the zone it affects
  • Analogue or intelligent addressable systems – the immediate environment of each zone is individually assessed by its own computer control unit, reducing false alarms
  • Wireless systems – the system communicates via radio rather than cables, reducing the risk of compromised operation should cabling suffer damage

Fire extinguishers – there are several type of extinguisher, designed for different types of fire source:

  • Water
  • Foam
  • Dry powder
  • CO2
  • Wet chemical
  • Metal fires

Air sampling – these products monitor the air in order to detect other potentially dangerous hazards, such as gas, vapours and dust particles

Emergency lighting – fires or power cuts can lead to your main lighting services being lost. If this happens, your emergency lighting will start to operate, allowing your employees and visitors to evacuate the building quickly and safely.

Detection and Prevention – the benefits

  • Save lives – an undetected or uncontrolled fire can lead to deaths, but a reliable system will hugely reduce that risk.
  • Protect your property – fire damage to your property or loss of assets can seriously affect your business.
  • Compliance – an approved system will ensure you’re legally compliant.

  • Comprehensive protection – you can add all kinds of extras, such as emergency lighting.
