When it comes to fire, every second counts. Therefore it is vital to have the best possible fire alarm system to help alert people as soon as fire breaks out.
This is why at Allstar Security Systems we recommend that if you want to protect your home, business and loved ones in the Banstead local area you should choose an integrated fire alarm protection system.
If you run a business, then you are legally obliged to check that your system is working according to British standards. As well as systems, we offer regular servicing by our fully trained engineers.
It is also recommended that your system has a maintenance check once every six months.
We also look at practical issues. For example, we look at your company’s evacuation procedure so that we can be sure that any alarm system we set up won’t impede that.
There are different kinds of fire alarm available. An automatic system combines both the detection and the alarm. By contrast, a manual alarm has to be alerted by someone physically pressing a button or raising a switch.
There are also systems that can specifically detect where an alarm was activated. As well as being useful in terms of checking what happened, it can also be a way of checking if anyone activates a false alarm.
If you do choose to use a physical system, remember to consider where the button or switch is located. Ideally, it should be located somewhere that anyone could use it if necessary (for example if someone has a physical disability).
Remember if your system uses a battery check when it needs to be replaced (typically this will be every ten years but this may vary depending on the type that you have).
Some systems will make specific noises to alert you when a battery needs to be changed.
We offer a monitored alarm system. What this means is that if your alarm is activated then a signal will be sent out to the alarm monitoring centre. This service is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can be rest assured that in the event of a fire someone will be alerted in order to deal with it.
This is all part of the servicing contract that we have with our clients.
