Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems

AlertSystems offer the addition of Fire Detection and Fire Alarm systems to assist in the protection of your premises.

Business properties are required to carry out a fire risk assessment and implement a fire management plan and in most cases, this means the need for a fire alarm system.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that all non-domestic properties are required to carry out a fire risk assessment and implement a fire management plan which in most cases could mean the provision and maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm system.

Our comprehensive service includes the design, installation and servicing of high-quality Commercial Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems to BS5839-1 2017. These systems provide complete protection for a wide range of commercial premises.

Our qualified fire system design team can advise you on the latest in new fire detection and fire alarm systems. They can also provide professional advice and recommendations to enhance your existing system and ensure your business complies with all current regulations.

Fire Alarm Protection

Fire alarm systems are designed with one of two considerations at their core, Category L and Category P.

Category L systems are designed for the protection of life; these are normally specified as a result of a fire risk assessment. The level of Life protection will often depend on how many people access a specific building depending on variations, these types of Life Protection can range from Type M to L1.

Category P protection is designed for the protection of property. The main purpose of a Category P1 fire alarm system is to give the earliest possible warning of a fire, to minimise the time between the ignition of the fire and the firefighters’ arrival. P1 fire systems are designed to protect the whole building whereas P2 systems are designed to protect certain areas of a building which may have a higher fire risk or hazard. Some insurance companies may also have requirements for fire alarm systems that are installed and monitored, to ensure that an out-of-hours alarm is responded to.

What Type of System?

Fire Alarm Systems are categorised into three main types Conventional, Analogue Addressable and Wireless. To determine the fire system your business may require, it is important that a fire risk assessment is carried out. From this, we will be able to accurately recommend the appropriate fire system for your premises.
