Conventional Fire Alarm systems provide adequate protection for many smaller businesses such as small offices, nurseries, bed and breakfasts, warehouses and shops.
Choosing the right fire alarm system for your home or organisation can be a very daunting task indeed and without specialist knowledge it can often come down to a ‘best guess’ decision that could end up costing you dearly in wasted time and money, not to mention the potential safety of your staff.
Commercial Fire Alarms are fully guaranteed and come with a 12 month no charge service promise.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A conventional fire alarm system has detection zones which are connected to a number of automatic fire detectors (AFDs) such as heat or smoke detectors and break glass units across the building. If the system detects a fire then an LED will light up on the detector and on the relevant zone on the main control panel so you can clearly see the area the fire is in.
The control panel will then operate the warning sounders or sounder beacons which are usually on a separate circuit.
Conventional fire systems start from single zone systems all way up to 32 zone systems, although we recommend installing an addressable system for any building which requires protection for over more than eight zones.
Audible and visual signalling equipment are primarily used in Fire Evacuation, Industrial Signalling and Mass Notification applications.
