INTRODUCTION TO FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS.
The necessity for automatic fire detection systems is to ensure that occupants receive an early warning of a potential fire. They protect land and property and there are many contributing factors which are taken into account when deciding on the type of system which is best suited to building conditions. Consideration is given to the building usage, the size and layout of the property along with the degree of protection specified. Remote monitoring of systems, verification of alarms and secure signaling back to an Alarm Receiving Centre are examples of technologies which require significant investment. With our knowledge and experience we can advise and assist in keeping the cost of this investment at a reasonable level.
