commercial fire alarms

Fire is one of the single biggest threats to any business. Early detection and notification to the emergency services can often save lives, property and businesses.

Current UK law requires companies that employ five or more people, must have an up-to-date fire risk assessment in place. This assessment should outline the safety measures which have been applied in the workplace to safeguard people and property including fire doors and alarm systems. It is also good practice for those companies with less than five employees to have a fire safety protocol.

All of our systems are designed and installed to meet the requirements of BS5839:2017 pt 1, the requirement for Fire Alarm & Detection Systems.

FIre systems can seem like a complicated and expensive system to implement, but with our expertise, we can guide you towards the most effective and safest system without breaking the bank whilst keeping you fully compliant with the law.

Types of alarm

Fire alarm legislation doesn’t specify exactly which each type of fire alarm system should be used where – it comes down to what's right for your particular circumstances.  It's also really important to ensure it meets BS 5839 specifications, the relevant British Standard. 

There are 3 main types of automatic fire alarm system: conventional, wireless and addressable. 

Conventional Fire Alarm

This type of fire alarm is what most people imagine when they think of a fire alarm. It divides your premises into broad zones, and in the event of an alert, the fire alarm panel identifies the zone, but not the precise area.

Who's it for? Usually most suitable for smaller or lower risk environments.

Addressable Fire Alarm

This system is more intelligent because each individual fire detection device has its own unique electronic address. If one activates, the fire alarm panel tells you precisely where the problem is. 

Who's it for? Usually most suitable for larger or higher risk environments such as schools, care homes, and hospitals.

Wireless Fire Alarm

This intelligent system works in a similar way to the Addressable Fire Alarm – just without the wires. Instead, it uses a secure wireless link between the sensors and the fire alarm panel. 

Who's it for? Usually most suitable for premises where lots of cabling isn't appropriate, such as churches and historic buildings.
