Installing a fire detection system into your premises is one of the most important decisions that will be taken. The type of system that is specified should be fully compliant with the British Standard BS 5839-1 2017, whilst ensuring that it achieves the risk mitigation objectives that have been identified in your Fire Risk Assessment.
From identifying the correct level of detection required, to ensuring the right detectors are used and the alarm signals provides suitable sound/visual output, there are a minefield of design questions that need to be addressed. At Sygma Fire Services, our fully qualified and accredited fire detection system designers will be on hand to guide you through the process, providing options based on the best possible equipment to achieve the desired level of protection of the building.
An important part of the design process is the consideration of false alarms and the best ways to minimise them. False alarms can be costly in terms of maintenance, and disruptive to the business as it distracts from being able to operate effectively. In this respect, choosing the right detector for the right environment is critical – whether it be heat detectors in places where the air is heavy with steam or dust, or beam detectors when large spaces need to be continual monitored.
All the technology that we recommend is compliant with the EN-54 standard which governs the quality of devices and alarms, and our team is constantly on the look out for new and cutting-edge technology to provide our customers with the earliest possible detection in the event of a fire.
