Whether you're looking to install a new fire alarm system or ensure your existing fire system is kept up to code, Ignis has you covered.
If the fire detection alarm system in your business isn’t performing correctly, it may not detect fires early on as they are developing so that there is time for occupants to safely vacate the premises.
Fire alarm systems are intended to detect fires early enough to ensure the safety of emergency response personnel who turn out to reduce building loss and safely ensure that everyone has escaped dangerous burning situations. At Ignis Fire Protection Services we can provide, install and service top quality fire detection alarm systems in businesses across the Midlands.
When operating properly, the fire detection alarm systems we supply are able to minimise the amount of time required to get a business back up and running. The best fire alarm systems are set to alert first responders and provide information about the location of the fire, speeding up the process of controlling the fire and applying suppressive measures to limit damage.
There are many types of fire alarm systems available to businesses; one type is a manual system, which relies on a person activating a manual call point to set the fire system into a full alarm condition. This generally delays the notification process, which, in an automatic detection system is far quicker since the alarm can be raised via the nearest automatic smoke detector, helping people to leave the premises sooner.
When selecting fire detection alarm systems for your business it is important to consider your objectives for fire safety.
To determine this, it is vital to perform an assessment of the facility and its operations. This assessment should include the way you view your tolerance to risk and your ability to financially compensate for losses.
Because facilities are different, this should be weighed in the balance. For instance, a hospital, dormitory or hotel where people might be asleep or unable to fend for themselves can be considered at greater risk for loss of life than a warehouse that stores saleable goods.
Along with selecting and installing a specific type of fire alarm system, is the continuing commitment required during its life. Due to the manpower and time it takes to inspect, test and maintain these systems, the cost is ongoing. This, among other reasons, is why it is crucial to evaluate your needs before choosing fire alarm systems and selecting the one that best fits your needs.
