Fire alarms are required in most buildings, in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Fire Risk Assessment. They are the safest and most reliable way of alerting members of staff to a potential fire risk.
Fire alarm servicing should be carried out at least every six months as recommended in the British Standard Code of Practice.
When choosing a fire alarm system many factors need to be considered such as the purpose, building structure and current legislation.
Fire Safety in new, extended or altered buildings is the responsibility of the Local Authority who delegates the responsibility to Building Control Department who in turn enforces and administers the Building Regulations.
In existing commercial buildings, premises are subject to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
All fire alarm systems essentially operate on the same principle. If any automatic detection detects smoke, heat or someone operates a break glass unit (manual break point), then the alarm sounds. This in turn will warn others in the building that there may be fire and the need for evacuation through the nearest fire door.
The alarms can be linked to shutdown anything from main gas valves to main building BMS panels and link to a Central Station for automatic summoning of the fire brigade.
