Fires present a major and unpredictable risk to people and property. Fire alarm systems will automatically identify an activation within a building in seconds enabling occupants to evacuate immediately.

Elite fire safety can design, install and complete the maintenance of conventional and addressable fire alarm systems to conform to I.S. 3218:1989 and I.S. 3218:2009 standards.

Our wireless fire alarm systems create a cable free solution which is suitable for all installations. Wireless fire alarm systems offer an advantage to construction that cannot be altered such as historic and listed buildings.

It is a statutory requirement for businesses to have a fire alarm installed on the premises and to employ the services of a specialist company to complete the routine maintenance of the system. We carry out the maintenance, inspection and testing of fire alarm systems and issue a report and certification on each service visit ensuring that your company is conforming to regulations.

In the event of a fire on your premises emergency lighting will provide a safe escape route for all occupants ensuring a safe evacuation at all times. Elite fire safety can complete the design, installation, maintenance and testing of all emergency lighting systems in accordance with I.S.3217:1989 and I.S.3217:2008 standards.

The emergency lighting system to include bulkheads and exit signs are tested on each service visit and bulbs and components are replaced accordingly to ensure all devices are fully operational. Service reports and certification are issued on completion.

When it comes to protecting your kitchen the ANSUL restaurant fire suppression system is at the top of its class. Kitchens are high risk areas and susceptible to fires due to the amount of appliances, cooking oils close to flash point temperature and high heat conditions etc. For these reasons it is imperative to protect the plenum area which houses the frying and cooking equipment at all times. In the event of a fire occurring in this area the ANSUL suppression system will activate automatically through the fixed temperature fusible links in the plenum and extinguish the fire by reacting with the oils thus smothering the fire through saponification. The nozzles fitted in the plenum and duct areas will discharge a wet chemical agent that will extinguish the fire immediately before it can spread into other areas. The advanced extinguishing agents ensure rapid flame knockdown and vapour securement as well as containing the area thus eliminating reflash. Elite Fire Safety can design, install and service all ANSUL systems in accordance with NFPA 17, 17A, 96.
