Alarm Installation & Maintenance
Fire alarm systems are one of the best investments a business can make to ensure it is protected from fire. Disruption to business such as loss of data or key business equipment can take time to replace or is irreplaceable.
For staff safety, what systems are in place to prevent injury or the loss of life? If you have the right fire alarm installed in your premises it means that your staff and visitors will be safe and even if a fire does break out, they can safely escape from the building.
Below are typical systems we can supply, install and commission. All systems and services are approved by BAFE which ensures you comply with current Fire Safety Law and that the system has been fitted by an approved company.
Conventional Fire Alarm Systems
Conventional fire alarm systems are the entry level for most fire system requirements. These alarms are suitable for small offices, nurseries, small hotels, warehouses, shops and any small businesses.
Twin Wire Fire Alarm Systems
Twin wire fire alarm systems are similar to a conventional system as they have detection zones. The main advantage of twin-wire systems is you can put sounders on the detection circuit which means you can save on the cost of having to wire additional sounder circuits.
Addressable Fire Alarms Systems
Addressable fire systems transmit data over the detection circuit that provides intricate information for the user including the exact location of the fire. Addressable fire alarm systems are ideal for larger premises such as hotels, office blocks and large factories.
Aspirating Smoke Detector
An aspirating smoke detector (ASD) is a system used in active fire protection, consisting of a central detection unit which draws air through a network of pipes to detect smoke. The sampling chamber is based on a nephelometer that detects the presence of smoke particles suspended in air by detecting the light scattered by them in the chamber. ASDs can typically detect smoke before it is visible to the naked eye. Typical used in ceiling/areas difficult to reach or maintain.
Automatic Fire Detection
Commonly used in most areas where a fire may occur from combustible materials such as paper, wood and textiles.
Wireless (Radio) Alarm Systems
Radio fire alarms (also known as wireless fire alarms) are the same as a standard analogue addressable fire alarm system but with the advantage of no wires to interlink the detection and sounders. Wireless fire alarms are ideal for premises with multiple buildings such as schools, colleges or science parks.
Once you have the right system in place you should then consider how to respond to an alarm out of working hours. Sissons & Allen can arrange a solution with a remote monitoring service.
