WHY HAVE A FIRE ALARM SYSTEM?
Fire can kill – Regency fire and Security Ltd can keep your home and businesses safe!
Fire and poisonous gas is a serious risk to your family. Any home without effective, functioning fire protection systems is a potential tragedy we wish to ensure is avoided.
Fire is a serious risk to your business. Becoming a victim of a blaze not only threatens lives and thousands of pounds in potential property damage, it can stop you from trading altogether. As an employer, business owner, landlord or person responsible for business premises (Health & Safety / Facilities Manager) you have a responsibility, by law, to ensure a sufficient level of fire protection. These responsibilities are outlined in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and include:
- Carry out a Fire Risk Assessment of the premises and review it regularly
- Ensure your employees are aware of the identified risks
- Put in place and maintain appropriate fire safety measures
- Regularly test your systems and provide a plan for an emergency
- Provide fire safety instructions and training
TYPES OF FIRE DETECTION:
Addressable Fire Alarm System:
An addressable fire alarm system is essential for your business safety. An addressable fire alarm means all devices linked to the system (such as smoke detectors) have an ‘address’ or location. This means if a device is triggered, the addressable fire alarm panel will show exactly which device it was and where it is located in the building.
Conventional Fire Alarm System:
Fire detection devices are individually connected to conventional fire alarm panels using wires. If a connected device detects signs of a fire (such as smoke or heat), it will send a signal to the control panel and set off the alarm. The panel will show you which ‘zone’ (or area) of your building the fire has been detected.
Wireless Fire Alarms:
Wireless smoke detectors offer you the same high level of protection provided by wired devices. Although they look and work the same, they can be a more convenient option. This is because they are powered by batteries, which means there’s no extensive cabling or the requirement to be linked to your mains electricity.
Sensors, Detectors, and Devices:
Smoke sensor – this fire detector senses for signs of smoke, indicating the early stages of a fire.
Heat detector – this device senses for sudden rises in temperature which could be caused by a fire starting.
Multi-sensors – this is an optical/heat multisensor which can be used to protect against many types of fire risk. The other is a carbon monoxide/heat multisensor which protects against both smoldering fires and those generating heat.
Carbon monoxide detector – just like fire detection, this device senses for any sign of dangerous carbon monoxide gas that may be caused by a leak – a must in any property.
Optical detectors – sense for slow, smoldering fires.
Manual call points (Breakglass) – These devices allow anyone spotting a fire to activate the fire alarm by simply pushing the glass on the front of the unit.
Ionisation smoke alarm – ionization detectors sense for fast flaming fires. High-temperature heat detector – Activates when the temperature inside the room reaches 90°C I
Intelligent reflective beam detector – When smoke is present in the beam path the light registered by the receiver is reduced by an amount dependent on the density of the smoke.
Audible Devices – fully programmable high output stand alone and loop powered electronic sounders and include many features such as Voice, selectable tones, volume control and Coloured strobes.
Interfaces – Are used to link to many types of plant and building management systems as well as Dampers, Smoke Extractor vents, security systems and remote signaling devices.
