Types of Business Fire Alarm Systems

All commercial businesses that employ over five people, must by law have a fire alarm system installed.

The decision over which type of fire alarm to install will be determined by the fire risk assessment.

The following are the most common options of commercial fire alarm.

Which Fire Alarm System Do I Need?

A reliable commercial fire alarm system will detect fire signals, save lives and minimise costly damage to buildings and property. Current UK fire alarm regulations state that all business premises must have ‘an appropriate fire detection system’, however the type of fire alarm system that is right for your business will be determined as part of the fire risk assessment.

A fire risk assessment is a process that involves a competent individual carrying out a systematic evaluation of commercial premises to assess the risk of fire, the likelihood that a fire could break out, and the consequences should a fire occur.

From this inspection, they will produce a written a report which will include a recommendation for category of fire alarm that should be installed. This recommendation will be based on:

  • The building structure
  • The purpose and use of the building
  • Current legislation

The technology available in this modern age is the best it’s ever been. There is a broader than ever range of cost-effective solutions to choose from in order to comply with the category of fire alarm that has been specified as appropriate for your business.

There are basic categories of fire alarm which are based on ‘property protection’ and ‘life protection’. Whichever category of fire alarm is specified, its basic purpose is to detect the signals that a fire may be present and set off audible and visual warnings to prompt a response from the emergency services and the implementation of evacuation procedures that ensure people can exit the building and reach safety as quickly as possible.

This is why it is important to carry out a fire risk assessment on a regular basis to determine if any changes in your business operations or those of adjacent businesses have altered your fire risk profile.
