Commercial Fire Alarm Systems
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 establishes a minimum fire safety standard for all non-domestic premises. These rules must be enforced by a ‘responsible person’; this is either the employer (if the building is a workplace) or the building owner. Your commercial property must comply with all regulations, or you could find yourself liable in the event of a fire.
One of the measures that must be put in place is an adequate fire alarm system. Effective commercial fire alarm systems will provide an early warning to all building occupants, affording them extra time to escape a blaze. If you are searching for a reliable company to install your fire alarms, contact Astra Security Systems today; we supply competitively priced commercial fire systems installed by our technicians as part of our commercial services.
Types of Commercial Fire Alarms
Astra Security Systems supplies a variety of commercial fire alarms, all of which are fully compliant with BS 5839 regulations. These include:
- Ionisation alarms – these are effective at detecting fast-moving fires. Smoke enters the ionisation chamber and disrupts current flow, sounding the alarm.
- Optical alarms – an infrared LED pulses a beam of light into the room every 10 seconds to search for smoke particles. These alarms are good for identifying smouldering fires.
- Heat alarms – these alarms don’t monitor smoke but instead detect a temperature increase. Heat alarms are ideal for commercial kitchens as they won’t be set off by fumes and steam, reducing the likelihood of a false alarm.
- Multi-sensor alarms – these can monitor the two different by-products of fire simultaneously: smoke and heat. Multi-sensor alarms have increased sensitivity, resulting in faster detection.
