Fire Alarms Keighley
Need fire alarms in Keighley? … Stop right there.
British Fire safety regulations wants virtually all businesses to install a fire alarm system. Governmental guides tell us that if you can shout ‘Fire!’ and it’s audible above the normal noise, throughout your premises then you may not need a fire protection system. That rules out typically 90+% of businesses.
So you no doubt require a fire alarm but what specification? How many sensors and which ones? How many sounders are necessary? Do I need flashing strobes for the hard-of-hearing? These are all pertinent questions that need to be thought of also reflection on the processes you execute and the potential fuels on your site.
There are many grades and categories of fire protection system and selecting the correct one is essential in keeping you legal. Your obligatory fire-risk-assessment should help lead you and we are happy to assist and explain the most suitable options.
You should also speak to your insurance company. A system designed only to save lives may keep you compliant but your underwriter (and indeed you) may need a system to save your livelihood too. Therefore, we have life protection and property protection categories i.e. L categories and P categories. If you have premises protection then the system must be monitored when the building is empty.
Organising a free no-obligation surveyor’s visit is a ideal place to start. Our highly trained staff will walk you through the alternatives whilst considering your insurance company’s demands and the results of your risk assessment.
After the survey we will email a design and quote for for you to peruse. BS5839 insists that every section of the fire system needs to be certificated i.e. design, installation, commissioning and handover. As a BAFE approved installation company we can certificate all four stages. The commissioning engineer must not be the same engineer that installed the system – so be wary of single person businesses.
