Fire Alarms in Leeds

Need fire alarms in Leeds? … Stop right there.
UK Fire safety regulations requires nearly all businesses to have a fire alarm system. National guides says that if you can exclaim ‘Fire!’ and be heard above the ambient noise, in all areas of your building then you may not have to have a fire detection system. That rules out maybe 95% of businesses.

So you most likely need a fire alarm but what type? How many sensors and which ones? How many sirens are necessary? Do I need visual warning devices for the hard-of-hearing? These are all pertinent questions that need to be considered and reflection on the processes you undertake and the probable fuels in your building.

There are numerous grades and categories of fire detection system and deciding the right one is important in keeping you legal. Your mandatory fire-risk-assessment could help lead you and we are more than happy to assist and explain the most suitable options.

You should also speak to your insurance company. A system designed simply to save lives might keep you on the right side of the law but your insurance company (and indeed you) may need a system to save the business too. Therefore, there are life protection and property protection categories i.e. L categories and P categories. If you have building protection then the system must be monitored when the building is empty.

Setting up a no charge site survey is a ideal place to start. Our professionally trained surveyors will talk you through the choices also considering your underwriter’s advice and the findings of your risk assessment.

Straight after the surveyor’s visit we will email a specification and quote for you to consider at your leisure. BS5839 requires that every part of the fire alarm needs to be certificated i.e. design, installation, commissioning and handover. As a BAFE approved installation company we can certificate all of the stages. The commissioning engineer must not be the same engineer that fit the system – so be wary of single person businesses.
