Fire detection systems and alarm systems

Why you should ensure that proper fire detection and alarm systems are in place on your property

Fire detection and fire alarm systems help save lives and preserve property

There are some simple steps you can take to ensure fire detection systems remain safe and effective during any building works.

British Standard 5839-Part : 1 2013 provides recommendations for the planning, design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and alarm systems.

Any building or repair work should be carried out by a fully trained professional with access to the correct tools.

When installing trunking or cables, ensure any openings are made good to prevent possible fire spread or the passage of smoke.

We would urge you to make any arrangements during works to prevent unwanted fire alarm signals (UFAS). False alarms are a major problem which put lives at risk, cost money and cause disruption to the day to day use of premises. 

Visit our UFAS pages to find out more about the steps we are taking to prevent these types of calls and what you can do to help us.
