There are several different types of fire alarm systems available for businesses just like yours. The type of fire alarm system you chose for your business will depend on what you need from the system. You will need to choose the type of fire alarm system that best suits your business, sector and the needs of your site.
The three most common types of fire alarm systems we supply, install and maintain for businesses just like yours are as follows. The Conventional Fire Alarm System, An Addressable Fire Alarm System and the Wireless Fire Alarm. These three fire alarm systems are all different and therefore offer different benefits and are suited to different businesses and premises.
- The Conventional Fire Alarm System is made up on zones. This will tell you within which zone of your business premises that the fire alarm has been activated in.
- An Addressable Fire Alarm System gives each device its own address. This means that when the fire alarm is triggered you will know exactly which alarm is sounding. This will enable you to find the potential fire and deal with it much quicker.
- A Wireless Fire Alarm has no need for phone lines. Instead, a radio signal is transmitted to and from the devices. This is done throughout the premises.
When considering the different types of fire alarm systems for your business, it is important that you have a fire risk assessment completed. Your fire alarm assessment will help you understand which category of fire alarm system is required for your business. It is a legal requirement that you have a fire risk assessment. This is clearly outlined in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
