Why Your Business Needs a Customised Fire Alarm System

Customised Fire Alarms: Every business premises in the UK is at risk of catching fire, whether caused by an electrical fault or a malicious act, such as arson. So, ensuring your business premises have the best possible fire alert and protection in place makes sense.

While most commercial premises you rent or buy will come with some sort of fire protection system, it may not be adequate to meet the needs of your particular industry or the fire risks that are most commonly associated with it.

If you are inheriting a fire alarm system from a previous owner or commercial tenant, you will need to have it checked to ensure it works. Even if you have appointed a fire safety officer within your company, it can help bring in a professional fire alarm technician to inspect and test your system thoroughly. TF Installations can help you with this.

Fire risk assessment

When moving into new commercial premises, you should conduct a fire risk assessment for your business. You could be operating in a very different environment from what you are used to. There may be more rooms to cover with your fire protection, or you may be going from a single floor to working over multiple floors, which will require a safe fire escape route.

You will also need to work out the right fire suppression equipment required and where to place it, such as fire extinguishers, fire blankets and sprinklers. A fire risk assessment conducted by a professional fire alarm technician will give you a guide to work from to ensure you put in place the best possible fire protection system to keep your staff and premises safe.

Your fire risk assessment will also tell you if your existing fire alarm system is up to code and what modifications or additions are needed to make it meet your individual needs.

What are Custom Fire Alarms?

There is a big difference between a standard fire alarm that can be brought off the shelf for domestic use and a fully customised fire alarm system for commercial use.

A traditional domestic fire alarm will typically include smoke and heat detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and a fire alarm sounder. These can be purchased over the counter and easily installed in a typical house by anyone competent at DIY.

However, home fire alarms are not cohesive systems. This means a standard domestic fire alarm won’t be suitable for commercial or industrial use. Customised commercial fire alarm systems are designed specifically around your building layout and the type of business you run.

Suppose your company handles or uses flammable liquids, gasses or materials as part of your operation. In that case, a customised fire alarm is your best move to ensure that every square inch of your premises is protected by the most appropriate fire safety detection and suppression equipment.

What are the advantages of having a customised commercial fire alarm?

As a business owner, you must protect your staff and premises with adequate fire protection. This means that relying on an inherited fire alarm system or installing a domestic-rated fire alarm isn’t going to be enough to meet your fire safety compliance.
