fire alarm installation
A good alarm can prevent a small fire becoming a disaster. Your fire alarm installation and any upgrades will be driven by legislation, your buildings, your activities and your fire risk assessments.
fire alarm monitoring
If your building is unattended outside working hours what happens if your fire alarm goes off? A fire alarm system with a monitoring service will ensure the fire brigade is alerted via an alarm receiving centre if needed.
It is vital that fire extinguishers are the right type, in the right locations and in full working order in case they are needed in the event of a fire. This is why annual servicing by a qualified engineer is needed to meet current legislation.
Like fire stopping, fire doors are essential to delay the spread of fire around a building; but also to be functional, allowing the day-to-day movement of people yet provide a means of escape in the event of a fire.
fire alarm maintenance
To retain BS 5839 compliance the recommended period between regular scheduled maintenance visits should not exceed six months. Having a maintenance contract in place makes this easier to manage.
fire risk assessments
A fire risk assessment identifies the fire hazards and people at risk; then evaluates, removes or reduces those risks. All findings are recorded, an emergency plan prepared and training delivered. Risk assessments must be reviewed and updated regularly.
Fire stopping is a requirement of UK Building Regulations and forms a key component of passive fire protection systems. Openings and gaps around joints and pipes in walls, floors and ceilings must be sealed to inhibit the spread of fire and smoke around buildings.
