Notifier Systems Designed For Your Commercial Business
When running your own business, there are specific key components of an effective fire protection system that you need to have in place to keep your building occupants and premises safe.
As a commercial business owner in the UK, you must have working fire protection systems in place, including a fire alarm, emergency lighting for escape routes, and fire suppression equipment that is most appropriate for your type of business.
There are also government-mandated fire safety regulations that you need to adhere to, including the proper testing, maintenance and repair of these fire protection systems.
It can be very overwhelming for a business owner moving premises to know whether or not the existing fire protection system installed in the building is suitable for their needs or how to go about checking this.
How TF Installations can help
To ensure your business premises have an effective fire protection system that will minimise the impact of a fire emergency on your property and your staff or building occupants, it can help to work with our team at TF Installations.
We can inspect your building, conduct a fire risk assessment, assess your current fire protection, and discuss your needs. We will address both your passive and active fire protection needs to ensure that your business will meet your fire safety compliance needs.
Our fire risk assessment will identify what you need to do to prevent a fire emergency on your premises and how to keep your staff and other building occupants safe. According to government requirements, you must keep a written record of your fire risk assessment if your business has five or more people.
We will consider and devise:
- An emergency fire evacuation plan
- Emergency routes and exits
- Fire detection and warning systems
- Fire fighting equipment
- Providing information to employees and other people on the premises
- Staff fire safety training
- The needs of vulnerable people, for example, the elderly, young children or those with disabilities
- The removal or safe storage of dangerous substances
Passive and active fire protection requirements
There are two types of fire protection equipment – passive and active. Passive fire protection equipment is those things that help to control, isolate or slow down a fire, such as fire doors, walls, flooring and ceilings and roofs that can be designed to limit the spread of fire and smoke.
Your building may have walls that can act as fire barriers, but if you have open doorways in the walls, this will do little to control the spread of fire. We can consult on how you use your building and recommend installing fire doors in open passageways and replacing standard doors with fire doors.
Active fire-protection equipment includes things that take direct physical action to stop or slow the spread of fire and smoke. These items include sprinkler systems, smoke, heat and particle sensors and fire alarm systems.
Fire-alarm systems, such as top-rated Notifier Systems, act to identify the presence of a fire emergency, trigger extinguishing systems and the notification of your staff and other building occupants, and alert the local fire service.
Why choose a Notifier System?
You must have the right commercial level fire protection systems and equipment in place at all times. This will keep your staff and other building occupants as safe as possible and help protect your building and contents from the worst effects of a fire emergency.
Planning and installing a Notifier system does not need to be complicated. You can call our professional team from TF Installations to take care of everything for you.
One of the main benefits of having a Notifier system in place is that it will offer you the very best fire protection currently available on the market. Having a high-quality, reputable fire protection system in place can save you a lot of money on your building insurance premiums.
Your business is likely to have a lot of time and money invested into it. Think of everything from tools, machinery, IT hardware and software, stock and essential equipment that would be hard to replace in the event of a fire. You cannot risk having insufficient or inadequate fire protection when you have so much to lose.
