We supply the two most common groups of Fire Alarm Systems - Conventional Systems and Analogue Addressable Systems.

Conventional Fire Alarm Systems

These are often the natural choice for smaller systems or where budget is limited. Typically, the 'intelligence' of the system resides solely within the Fire Alarm Control Panel which receives a trigger signal from a Conventional Detector or Call Point. This in turn signals the condition to other devices such as alarm sounders and remote signalling equipment. Conventional detectors are normally connected to the Fire Control Panel via dedicated circuits, each circuit protecting a designated 'Zone' or 'Area'. Detectors have two states, Normal-Healthy and Alarm.

Analogue Addressable Systems

These systems offer more flexibility, intelligence, speed of identification and scope of control than Conventional systems, and are therefore more suitable for larger premises and more complex system requirements. In an analogue addressable system, detectors are wired in single or multiple loops around the building, with each detector having its own unique 'address'. The Fire Control Panel communicates with each detector individually and receives a status report, such as Healthy, In Alarm or In Fault. As each detector has an individual address, the fire control panel can indicate the precise location of the device in question, helping speed the location of an incident. For this reason, zoning of the system is not necessary, although can be done for convenience.

Fire Risk Assessment

Each year people die or are seriously injured as a result of fires at work. Besides loss of life, fire costs UK businesses millions of pounds, from damage to property, loss of business, fines, compensation claims and raised insurance premiums. Today, Fire Certificates are no longer required for commercial premises. Instead the emphasis is on preventing fires and reducing risk. Anyone who has some measure of control over non-domestic premises must take reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and make sure people can safely escape should a fire break out.
