Fire Alarms Harrogate
Need fire alarms in Harrogate? … You’ve reached the right place.
UK Fire safety legislation requires nearly all businesses to install a fire alarm. National guides tell us that if you can shout ‘Fire!’ and be heard above the normal noise, in all areas of your building then you may not need a fire detection system. That rules out maybe 95% of businesses.
So you no doubt need a fire alarm but what sort? How many sensors and which ones? How many sirens are required? Do I need visual warning devices for the hearing impaired? These are all relevant questions that need to be thought of also thoughts about the processes you carry out and the potential fuels in your premises.
There are numerous grades and categories of fire detection system and selecting the right one is essential in keeping you operating legally. Your obligatory fire-risk-assessment should help lead you and we are happy to help and make clear the best options.
You should also consult your underwriters. A system designed simply to protect life may keep you legal but your insurer (and indeed you) may want a system to save your business too. Therefore, there are life protection and property protection categories i.e. L categories and P categories. If you have premises protection then the system must be remotely monitored when the building is vacant.
Arranging a no charge site survey is a ideal place to start. Our well trained surveyors will walk you through the alternatives whilst considering your underwriter’s requirements and the outcome of your risk assessment.
Following the site visit we will email a specification and quotation for you to consider at your leisure. BS5839 requires that every stage of the fire alarm should be certificated i.e. design, installation, commissioning and handover. As a BAFE compliant company we can certificate all four of the stages. The commissioning engineer mustn’t be the same engineer that put in the alarm – so be wary of single person businesses.
