Call points are also installed as per the BS5839 standard. Our engineers are fully registered, covered and accredited to install fire extinguishers and fire security systems.

Fire alarms need to be present in every room in the building. When installing a fire system, is it common to have the detection system installed on the ceiling. This is a common yet desirable position for a fire alarm because any smoke that is produces will ascend up towards the alarm. Fire alarms are not the most important thing to have inside of every room, having a fire blanket or a fire extinguisher may provide better support for putting a fire out. However, in the case that the fire is not seen, having a smoke alarm in the room could give you the extra awareness time that it takes to get out safely. The building’s insurance is going to be a lot lower if you take the optimal safety measure and having smoke alarms reduces the risk of a mass fire by around 50%.
There a few different costs when it comes to installing a new fire alarm system for your business. Depending on the size of your business and the size of the building, you will have different costs for certain elements of your system. There are four main costs when it comes to incorporating a fire alarm system: the alarm equipment, monitoring packages, maintenance services and the amount of equipment you’re going to need. You can get different types of systems which come with different equipment. Depending on how advanced your equipment is, the price can heavily vary. The amount of the equipment that you are going to need can also vary depending on the size of your business and the size of the building. You will then also need a monitoring service to let you know if there is an alarm triggered at any point. There is also the maintenance cost of checking all of the elements of the fire alarm system are working correctly.
Technically, any electrician can install your fire alarm system. However, the regulations state that the person installing your fire alarms should be competent in fire alarm installation. You should always use an electrician that has had experience in fire system installations, as the risk of having an ill-working fire system is not worth the money you will save hiring an unqualified electrician. You should make sure your electrician provides their commissioning and testing certificate. It is also advised to use an electrician that is certified by a third-party.
