There’s no better time to address your fire safety systems and any outdated fire alarms than during a heat wave, when the risks of a fire starting accidentally on your premises can be much greater.
Whether it’s flammable rubbish stored adjacent to your building’s exterior, or the risk of a firework or paper lantern landing on a tinder-dry roof – even a discarded cigarette that is not properly stubbed out – there are all manner of ways a fire can start in such dry conditions, and they can spread much faster and more easily too.
Types of fire safety systems
There are several different types of fire safety systems for commercial premises and office buildings, and together they add up to comprehensive fire protection for your property:
- Smoke alarms and fire detectors.
- Automatic sirens and manually activated fire alarms.
- Sprinkler systems.
- Water mist systems.
- Dry and wet risers for emergency services.
- Battery-backup evacuation lighting and signs.
- Audio/vocal evacuation address systems.
- Carbon monoxide detection and alarms.
The list goes on – if your premises pose particular challenges, for example a need to allow employees to evacuate via areas that are normally restricted – we can also supply access control systems with this capability.
Integrated fire alarm systems
ACC Security supply standalone fire alarms, but we can also supply and install integrated fire safety systems, so that every element of fire detection, warning systems and automated response works in unison.
In this way, no matter when or where a fire breaks out on your property, you can be assured that anyone on-site will be alerted to the safety risk, while sprinkler systems begin to contain the blaze and emergency services are called out to tackle it.
You might think you can’t fight a fire until it starts, but with integrated fire safety systems, you can get an early warning as soon as smoke is detected – and with a proactive response to preventing the fire from taking hold, it is often possible to prevent any significant damage from ever taking place.
