Conventional fire alarm systems
From small shops & offices to medium sized buildings, conventional
fire alarm systems are a cost effective way to ensure you have a means
of detecting & warning of fire. Numerous detectors can be installed
on zones, when a detector is triggered the fire alarm control panel will
indicate which zone has been triggered, giving you or the fire brigade
an indication of the area of activation.
We can connect conventional fire alarm systems with other fire alarm
panels on your site or install communicators which are monitored by our
Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) ensuring a rapid response from the emergency
Specialised Fire Alarm Systems
These are very useful where a conventional system is not adequate but
the full addressable system is not required. We install these in all types
of premises but are ideal for areas which may have high false alarms in
multiple occupancy buildings.
Twinflex Fire Alarm systems
The Rafiki fire alarm system has particular advantages over a normal
conventional system – e. g. the detectors can be changed from heat to smoke
or sensitivity reduced on smoke detectors simply by flicking a switch.
Sounders are incorporated within the detector enabling better sound prorogation,
also further sounders are not required helping the aesthetics of the building
(no sounders/bells on walls.
Twinflex Plus Fire Alarm systems
This particular fire alarm system has communal & dwelling zones,
if a detector is triggered on a communal zone a full evacuation will be
signalled & all sounders in the premises will operate. If a detector
is operated on a dwelling zone, a timer is triggered, the detector/s or
zone which the triggered detector/s are on are operated, after a predetermined
time (to be agreed with housing officer or fire officer) has elapsed the
system will either clear & stop the sounders on that particular zone
(that is if the detector is no longer in fire mode) or if the detector
is still in fire it will then activate all sounders with in the building.
The above system will stop false alarms from different flats/bedsits
evacuating the whole building & stop complacency from any other residents
while still giving protection of the residents & property by giving
an alarm if the tenant is not in or the alarm is not cleared in time.
Addressable Fire Alarm Systems
This type of fire alarm system is state of the art & is highly
intelligent. If a detector is triggered it give a text read out of exactly
where this unit is e.g. “smoke detector 17 managers office”. The main advantage
of this system is for large buildings where a detector on a conventional
zone may take some time to find. Some examples of where addressable systems
are used are:
Hotels & Hospitals, large factories & warehouses, schools &
colleges, nursing homes, complex offices & multifunctional buildings.
As well as giving an exact point of trigger various other options are available
Sounders on the same circuit, cause & effect programming, intelligent
control of other equipment, phased evacuation
Wireless Fire Alarm Systems
When installation costs are taken into account, radio fire alarm systems
are very cost effective and have distinct advantages over the traditional
wired system. These advantages include :-
No disruption to the building fabric or its occupants- Wired fire alarm
systems invariably cause significant disruption to buildings and occupants
that leave the user with "hidden" costs.
Temporary Protection- The Health & Safety at Work Act often requires
fire alarm systems even on temporary buildings and construction sites.
Radio systems can satisfy this requirement and then be easily removed for
use elsewhere when the temporary need expires.
Remote Buildings - Large savings can be made in avoiding costly excavation
for inter-connecting cables.
Large Sites - Long cable runs can be very expensive and vulnerable
to damage. Radio overcomes these problems.
Urgent needs - Radio alarm systems can be installed in a fraction of
the time needed for wired systems and equipment is generally available
at short notice
Remote Fire Alarm Monitoring
Having the right fire alarm system in place is your 1st priority, but
great consideration should be given to the response of an alarm out of
working hours. For a small fee we can connect your fire alarm system to
the renowned BT RedCARE networking or digital communicators, this will
ensure that the Fire Brigade or a 3rd party is contacted at all times helping
prevent a catastrophe happening when your building is empty or confusion
is caused during a fire (it is quite common for the fire brigade to not
be contacted thinking some else must have phoned 999?)
Fire extinguishers are a legal requirement in most premises, ensure
your trust in our survey & installation/service engineers to identify
the risk & specify the correct extinguisher to protect you against
Cigarette Smoke Detectors
Creating a smoke free workplace is now easier than ever with a brand
new range of cigarette smoke detectors and cigarette smoke alarms. These
alarms provide a voice message in alarm using innovative DVS (Digital Voice
Synthesis) Technology. The unit comprises an integral Flame detector and
voice sounder module, which provides a voice message when a lighter or
match is detected. "This is a no smoking area, please extinguish your cigarette,
a member of staff has been contacted" Battery operated using 4 x AA alkaline
batteries, the CSA-FDV can be simply screwed to the ceiling and is capable
of detecting a 25mm flame at a distance of 6 metres within 1 second
