Professional Fire Alarm Installation and Maintenance in London and the SE from TF Installations
Fire Alarm Installation and Maintenace: London and the South East of England is a hive of business activity. Still, with so many companies setting up shop here, business owners must ensure they protect their new venture with the proper fire prevention and protection equipment to suit their needs.
Business owners in the UK are required by law to install and maintain fire alarms and appropriate fire safety equipment to protect the lives of their staff, customers, clients or any visitors on their premises. Failure to do so can see your company breaching Health & Safety regulations. Should your business experience a fire emergency, your insurance company can refuse to pay your claim.
Commercial fire alarm inspections and fire risk assessments
Depending on the type of business you operate and the style and layout of your premises, you will need a fire alarm system that meets your protection needs. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for commercial fire alarm installations, so what may be perfect for an office-only environment will not meet the needs of a company that handles flammable liquids, gas or combustible materials.
One commonly overlooked issue is when a company takes over business premises and inherits a working fire alarm system that is up to date and operating efficiently. The new owner may believe they have their fire safety needs covered by having a functional fire alarm system in place, but can fail to realise it may not be suitable to protect their type of business.
Having the right fire safety system in place can make all the difference between life and death. Suppose your company is expanding and moving into larger premises, or you are downsizing and streamlining your operation by moving to smaller premises. In that case, you must never assume that an existing fire protection system is perfect for your needs.
This is why it makes sense to call a professional electrical installation company, such as TF Installations, to inspect your existing fire alarm system and conduct a fire risk assessment for your business.
We can send one of our fully qualified fire alarm technicians to do this for you and produce an advisory list of changes to bring your fire protection system up to standard. This could involve adding new or extra smoke and particle sensors to high-risk areas, replacing or upgrading obsolete components that are no longer available, creating new emergency escape routes and recommended emergency lighting upgrades and additions.

Cheaper insurance renewals
Everyone has to tighten the purse strings these days, business owners included. However, you should never compromise when it comes to the protection of your staff and other building occupants.
One of the benefits of having a well-maintained commercial fire protection system is that it can save you money on your business insurance policy. Because you will have your fire alarm and associated fire protection equipment looked after by a professional company, your insurer will be more inclined to offer you favourable rates on your business insurance.
Having up-to-date fire safety certification from TF Installations will help show your insurance company that you take your Health & Safety responsibilities seriously and have the most up-to-date and effective fire protection systems in place.
Improved productivity and business efficiency
It is a sad fact that more than 90 per cent of emergency calls to the fire service in the UK are false alarms. This creates a significant drain on the nation’s resources and means that while a fire crew are attending to a false alarm, they would be unavailable for a real fire emergency where lives are at risk.
While it is good practice to perform fire evacuation tests regularly to ensure staff and other building occupants know what to do in a real-life emergency, dealing with endless false alarms can significantly disrupt your business.
This is why choosing your fire alarm system is critical if you want to reduce the number of false alarms, which are annoying and negatively impact your business productivity and efficiency.
Once installed, regular testing, servicing and maintenance of your fire alarm system will ensure that your sensors are free of dust, cobwebs or insect activity that are often responsible for triggering false alarms.
Many issues can cause false fire alarms, from unsuitable equipment to poor maintenance. TF Installations can take care of your fire alarm installation and maintenance needs, so there will be one less worry on your mind.
