The right fire alarm can save lives and minimise damage.
By detecting a fire before it has the chance to take hold, anyone in the building has a better chance of evacuating safely.
The right fire alarm can save lives and minimise damage. By detecting a fire before it has the chance to take hold, anyone in the building has a better chance of evacuating safely.
Note the use of the word ‘right’. It’s important to distinguish between a fire detection system which is right for your business and one that isn’t up to the job. That’s where we can help.
Fire alarms must be designed and installed according to British Standards. If you’re a business owner, you will, by law, be the ‘responsible person’ with a legal duty to ensure that your business has an appropriate fire alarm system in place.
You also need to properly maintain the fire alarm to remain compliant. If that sounds daunting, don’t worry. We’re here to hold your hand through the whole process.

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT FIRE ALARM FOR MY BUSINESS?
With no knowledge of fire alarm technology, the choice can feel overwhelming. We can break it down for you and help you to identify the right fire alarm system for your premises.
Here’s an overview of the types of alarm system we can fit for you.
STANDARD FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS
Consider this our entry-level range. These alarms are a great fit for a building which is assessed as low risk. A standard alarm attracts attention to an incident and it can be linked to additional security alarm systems if required.
MONITORED FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS
As the name suggests, these systems link directly to a remote monitoring station and offer unparalleled protection. We use the UK’s largest supplier of independent monitoring, Southern Monitoring.
When fire is detected, the alarm immediately alerts the fire brigade to the incident. Simultaneously, a control panel in the building provides an operator with the exact location of the incident in the building, allowing for quick and effective action.
VESDA ASPIRATING SYSTEM
This system offers unmatched sensitivity and early detection in the event of fire. It uses continuous air sampling technology which extracts and analyses the air within the building to identify potential threats. Smoke is a primary cause of fire-related deaths. This system detects smoke more rapidly than a traditional smoke detector.
The VESDA system is cost effective to maintain and test. It’s therefore ideal for larger premises where access may be difficult.
INTEGRATED SECURITY & MAINTENANCE
One of our key USPs is that, unlike traditional fire safety suppliers, we can integrate different fire, smoke ventilation and security systems. Fire safety systems can be integrated with access control or smoke ventilation to provide a comprehensive solution, saving you the expense and effort of sourcing more than one supplier.
Our engineers and security experts are here to offer you advice and provide a bespoke service for all aspects of your safety and security.
ADDITIONAL SERVICES YOU MAY REQUIRE
FIRE EXTINGUISHER SUPPLY
Many small fires can be quickly extinguished but only with the right equipment to hand. Install our fire extinguishers and you have a good chance of preventing loss of life and disruption to your business.
EMERGENCY LIGHTING INSTALLATION
Essential for successful evacuations, we design and install emergency lighting tailored to your needs. If emergency strikes, you can rest assured that our lights will guide the way to safety.
FIRE DOOR INSPECTION
Fire doors are one of the most important tools in your fire protection arsenal. The right door can protect building inhabitants until emergency services arrive. They really are the difference between life and death.
SMOKE VENTILATION INSTALLATION
Smoke is the largest cause of death in fire-related events. Installing a smoke ventilation system means you can fight fire from the outset, often before it’s detected by alarms or humans.
