As commercial security and fire experts, we provide comprehensive design and installation services for fire alarm systems and other related life safety systems such as Smoke Ventilation (AOV) systems. We can also include your regulatory periodical full emergency lighting testing with our fire alarm maintenance agreements so that all of your electronic life safety systems are managed together.
The importance of installing and maintaining fire alarm systems to the current relevant Code of Practice cannot be over estimated. They are installed to protect property and save lives in occupied building when both occupied, and when not.
Unlike security systems, the requirements and design for a fire alarm system is not driven by the end user preference but usually by the nominated fire safety risk assessor. The assessor will identify the areas to be covered and provide a design brief in the form of a categorisation code. Using this categorisation, Burnley Alarm Systems Ltd are fully accredited to BAFE SP203 to provide full certification for all four stages of professional design and implementation of your fire alarm installation project:
We review and refresh our training for designers, installers and commissioning engineers throughout the year as part of our Quality Management Systems and work closely with the Fire Industry Association to make sure we are always up to date with regulatory changes. You can find more information regarding fire alarm selection and categorisation here.
Monitoring and URN Requirements
We provide installation and Alarm Receiving Centre services top remotely monitor your fire alarm system via the BT Redcare network which is usually the preferred method of insurers. Plans are being laid by the fire service to instigate a similar scheme to that of intruder alarms whereby a Unique Reference Number (URN) must be registered to the building before the emergency services will attend upon a fire alarm activation. Only installers with BAFE accreditation or similar will be able to apply for and register the URN.
