Integration – your fire safety system can be combined with other alarm and security measures, such as CCTV systems and access control.
Comprehensive protection – you can add all kinds of extras to your fire detection system for ultimate peace of mind, such as emergency lighting products.
Fast response – a monitored system will send out an alert to your local fire service so that they know to attend quickly if a fire should break out.
What type of fire detection system is right for my business?
A simple fire alarm isn’t enough to protect your business, but the exact components you need to consider will depend on 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 – your alarm system will be designed to include detectors and call points across different zones or circuits, which correlate to different floors/areas
- Addressable system – similar to the above, but with more sophisticated control panel capabilities for accurate detection via loop and isolation modules, 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:
- Dry powder
- 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
