Commercial fire alarm systems come in different types, including conventional, addressable, and wireless style systems. Conventional systems have a central control panel that monitors different zones, while addressable systems allow for specific identification of the location of the fire or smoke whilst also being intelligent and programmable to specific client needs. Wireless systems, on the other hand, are flexible and easy to install, making them potentially ideal for retrofitting existing buildings. Rapid Fire & Security install and maintain the full gambit of options and can advise the best solution based on your specific requirements.
Having a commercial fire alarm system installed to BS5839-1:2017 is a legal requirement under UK law, and failure to comply can and does result in severe penalties. Regular maintenance and testing of these systems are also required to ensure they function correctly in the event of a fire.
