We supply, install and maintain fire alarms, emergency lights and fire extinguishers

Fire Alarm Systems

A fire alarm system has a number of devices working together to detect and warn people through visual and audio appliances when smoke, heat or other emergencies are present. Alarms may be activated automatically from smoke or heat detectors, or manually operated call points. The alarm is then given by audible or visual means.

Emergency lighting

Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in the case of failure of their normal lighting. Every building will have its own specific requirements in respect of emergency escape illumination, the role of which, is to take over from the normal lighting provision in the event of a power or circuit failure.

Of course, these levels of 'normal' lighting will vary, even within an individual building. Different areas inside will have different levels of natural illumination: for example, rooms with external windows have the benefit of daylight, while unglazed, internal areas such as corridors and stairwells must always have lighting provided.

For the purposes of the British and European standards 'emergency lighting' is the generic term for the equipment that provides illumination in the event of failure of supply to the normal lighting. Emergency escape lighting is defined as that which is provided to enable safe exit in the event of failure of the normal supply.

Fire Extinguishers

Businesses have a responsibility for the provision of appropriate firefighting equipment. It is also important to check that all firefighting equipment is of the correct type, in the correct position, and in satisfactory condition.

Appropriate staff should be trained in the use of all such equipment.

There are various types of extinguishers for different hazards.
