Buildings are assessed usually from a fire risk assessment or via the building control officer. Each system is categorised to the British standard (BS5839), this allows the correct system to be designed to the risk assessed.
We design system from Category L1 (coverage in all areas), through to Category LD3 systems for domestic premises and smaller premises and communal areas.
These systems are based on zoning of areas and are suitable for small to medium size premises including apartment buildings, offices and shops. The fire resistant cabling is usually installed from the main entrance of the premises to each zone area and incorporates smoke and heat detectors along with manual break glass units and electronic sounders.
These types of system allow the user to see the precise location of the detector or manual break glass activated and are generally suitable for medium to larger buildings, where the location of the activation is more critical. These systems are intelligent and more versatile to extend and adapted to changing operations or uses. Printers and Networking can also be achieved with these type of systems and can interface to a multitude of other services to control and signal others.
Radio technology has the addressable panel advantages, without the need for wiring. These types of systems are most advantageous; in listed buildings, as temporary fire alarm systems, buildings where wiring is not cost effective, or if minimal disruption is required to a working environment.
VESDA systems give very early detection of smoke and are therefore suitable for protecting business critical areas such as server rooms or other IT installations. The systems give up to 4 levels of activation - e.g. Alert, Action, Fire 1 and Fire 2 - to allow for escalating responses. We offer a "one stop shop" from design through to certification and handover; with full comprehensive service packages to follow.

All our engineers are qualified electricians and have a detailed knowledge of the requirements under the 17th Edition Wiring regulations.

The test results are compared to set parameters as designated by the industry and any defects or potential defects recorded and logged. The UK Insurance approved standard for the safety of electrical installations, BS7671 - Requirements for Electrical Installations (IEE Wiring Regulations). The corresponding reporting document takes the form of a seven page report and highlights any problems, using a coding system with terminology of Code 1-3 depending on severity and more specialist codes for other faults found. The end result is a pass or fail of the electrical installation.
