If you are responsible for Fire safety or are a resident of a high-rise, multi-occupancy property you will be only too aware of the increased awareness of the need for enhanced fire detection and evacuation processes.
The former ‘stay put’ guidance is now regarded as unsafe and has been replaced by a ‘simultaneous evacuation’ strategy.
Many properties have deployed a waking watch service; this is a fire protection service and involves marshals patrolling to lookout for potential signs of a fire. They are also responsible for raising the alarm.
These services are costing property owners and residents thousands of pounds. A Waking Watch service can be replaced by a wireless Fire Detection System. This meets all the required standards and is quickly and easily installed. The total one-off cost of a Fire Detection System can be less than 10 weeks of a Waking Watch service.
The Dycon D1100 is a digital communicator device that provides a cost-effective product for signalling alarms. When the alarm is activated it signals the alarm to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) where the data is then received, processed and actioned.
