A fire alarm is the most important safety device within any home, office or business. These alarm systems can prevent damage, death and emotional trauma.
When planning to install a fire alarm, there are some points that first need to be considered. First of all, the size of the home, office or business must be evaluated.
Generally, stand alone smoke alarms should be installed near sleeping areas if in a home, or a fire alarm system comprising of smoke detectors, heat detectors and audio/visual devices if in a business environment. The number of fire alarm detectors needed depends on the number of offices, rooms or compartments within the area.
This is because in the event of a fire, the smoke will need to reach the fire alarm device to activate it and the quicker this is achieved the sooner the alarm can be raised to the fire brigade and less damage caused.
Fire detection and warning is essential in protecting your staff and building from the devastating effects of a fire. A well maintained fire alarm system can provide the time to facilitate the safe and effective evacuation of people from the building.
Automatic fire detection is crucial in determining the source of a fire and alerting building users of its presence.
British Standards 5839-1:2017 recommends that a fire alarm system is maintained every 12 months and that an interim service should be carried out every 6 months.
