These are ‘smart’ alarms: sophisticated, programmable reliable detection systems. The installation of an addressable system allows the end user to not only tailor the individual components of the system to their needs, but also allows a heightened level of control over any fire by transmitting information such as the location of the fire. Elements of the system, such as individual detectors, can be set to differing levels of sensitivity. The use of this system greatly improves the efficiency of fire management as it reduces the amount of false alarms which arise and allows the user to accurately assess the situation based on the information provided. Such systems are well utilised in larger premises such as office blocks and hotels. Currently we use the following systems: Morley, Advanced, C-tec, Ziton, Notifier, Kentech, Menvier and EMS.
Conventional Fire Alarm Systems
A conventional fire alarm system is an entry level system and would fulfil basic fire system requirements. They tend to be commonly used in smaller businesses and are practical in the event of budget restrictions. Their individual components are connected through one main circuit and the alarm is triggered if any element of that circuit experiences a change of any sort. A common example would be the presence of a break-glass unit in a property. These systems are suitable for small offices, shops or any small business. Detector systems currently being used are Apollo, Menvier, Hochiki, System Sensor, Fire Ray, Fire Beam, EMS and VESDA.
Fixed Automatic Extinguishing Systems
This system would typically be in place where products of a valuable nature were held in storage. They are capable of automatically detecting the presence of fire, and then dispensing an extinguishing agent to fight the fire. These systems are often installed in a specialised area of the premises such as a server room, and are usually used in combination as part of a larger system.
In addition to the fire protection systems outlined above we are also expert in the creation of disable refuge systems, which are designed to facilitate communication between the rescue services and any persons of limited mobility who may be trapped inside a building in an emergency situation. The systems would typically include a main communication panel to be used by the rescue services as well as a contact unit in any specified refuge areas.
