Looking for Fire Alarms in Bingley? … Stop right there.
United Kingdom Fire safety law mandates virtually all businesses to have a fire alarm. Government guides tell us that if you can exclaim ‘Fire!’ and people can hear you above the ambient noise, in all areas of your site then you may not have to have a fire protection system. That rules out perhaps 99 out of a 100 businesses.
So you probably need a fire alarm but what specification? How many detectors and what sort? How many sounders are necessary? Do you need flashing strobes for the deaf? These are all relevant questions that need to be considered also reflection on the processes you undertake and the possible fuels on your site.
There are numerous grades and categories of fire protection system and selecting the right one is important in keeping you legal. Your mandatory fire-risk-assessment could help show you and we are pleased to aid and make clear the best options.
You should also confer with your underwriters. A system designed purely to save lives may keep you legal but your insurer (and indeed you) may wish to have a system to save the business too. Therefore, there are life protection and property protection categories i.e. L categories and P categories. If you have property protection then the system must be remotely monitored when the building is empty.
Setting up a free surveyor’s visit is a good place to begin. Our professionally trained surveyors will guide you through the choices taking into consideration your insurer’s requirements and the findings of your risk assessment.
Straight after the surveyor’s visit we will email a design and quote for your consideration. BS5839 states that every section of the fire system should be certificated i.e. design, installation, commissioning and handover. As a BAFE approved installation company we can certificate all four of the stages. The commissioning engineer musn’t be the same engineer that fit the system – so be wary of single person businesses.
