In order to meet your requirements for life safety, most premises are required to have a means of giving warning in the event of a fire. Fire alarm systems are by far the most common and effective means of achieving this. However, all too often systems are specified and installed by manufacturers and contractors that are inappropriate to the specific risk and occupancy of the building. A rationalised design undertaken by a specialist fire consultant can meet your legal obligation and provide you with the additional benefit of cost effectiveness, content, property fabric and business process protection.
