Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 all premises must carry out a fire risk assessment, article 13 of the FSO requires the responsible person to ensure that the premises are to the extent that it is appropriate equipped with fire detectors and alarms, this can also be determined by the authority responsible for enforcing the fire safety legislation.
South East Fire Protection LTD specialise in designing, supplying, installing, commissioning and maintaining fire detection systems to meet BS5839-1:2017 requirements.
This is the simplest and most cost-effective type of fire detection system ideally suited for small business premises.
A conventional system allows you to have multiple detectors and sounders, each of which can be divided into zones. Although four wire systems are traditional, newer two wire methods are available and can offer cost savings.
Conventional fire systems require two pairs of wires per zone, one for detection devices such as fire detectors, the other for alarm devices such as sounders. By using different voltage bands for quiescent and alarm states, Twin Wired Systems allow detection and alarm devices to be connected on the same pair of supply wires. A combination of innovative fire alarm technology that can reduce installation costs.
These systems are ideal for medium, large or higher risk premises, each individual device is given an address (ID) to provide clear indication of the position of a fire or fault activation.
This will speed up response times as well as assisting in the evacuation of the premises. As the system are engineer programmed with cause and effect, the systems can offer a vast array of control, phasing evacuation and connection to external equipment such as voice alarms, plant shutdown and life controls.
These systems offer the same functionality as the addressable systems but less or no cabling This reduces disruption during the installation. The technology has evolved making these systems a popular choice in the market.
Wireless Systems have the technical ability to integrate with wired addressable systems to create a bespoke/hybrid solution. Where preservation of the fabric and décor of a building is required Wireless is a great solution.
