Fire Alarm Installation and Servicing

When you choose Fire Guard Services to install, service and maintain your fire alarm system, you can be certain that you will be compliant with government and industry legislation.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that premises must be equipped with fully-working fire detection and alarm systems. You can also be assured of professional advice. We have extensive fire safety experience and offer top quality customer service. In accordance with BS5839 Part 1: 2017 (Fire Alarm Systems), Fire Guard Services can provide you with a complete, integrated fire alarm solution, including smoke and heat detection, beacons, sounder bells and manual call points. Once your fire alarm system has been installed, our engineers will carry out quarterly or six monthly servicing. This is a requirement of BS5839 and ensures that your fire alarm system remains in perfect working order.

We are also able to offer weekly and monthly fire alarm testing, as and when required. Our engineers can also provide training to help improve your knowledge of your fire alarm system; to help you better understand how to use it correctly.

Fire Alarm Systems - Which One is Most Suitable?

We offer a free consultation with one of our qualified fire alarm engineers throughout Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, who will discuss the fire alarm system best suited to your company and needs.

We then handle everything for you, from the design stage through to fire alarm system installation, commissioning, hand-over, training and servicing.

There are three main types of fire alarm systems available; conventional, addressable and wireless:

  • Conventional Fire Alarm – a fire safety system designed to detect and alert you of signs of fire within a premises. Fire detection devices are connected individually to conventional fire alarm panels systems using wiring. When a connected device detects smoke or heat, it sends a signal to the main control panel (which will show the “zone” or “area” where the fire has been detected) and sets the alarm off. These are most suitable for smaller buildings or low-risk establishments.
  • Addressable Fire Alarm – a system made up of detectors and devices that are connected to a central control panel. Each device has a specific address or location. This ‘address’ identifies the exact location of the fire. These are perfect for larger buildings, especially those spread over a wide area.
  • Wireless Fire Alarm – as the name suggests, these devices have no wires – instead they utilise a secure wireless link. A signal is transmitted from manual call points, smoke and heat detectors to the fire alarm control panel to set off the alarm. These are most suitable for properties and establishments where wires and cables are difficult to connect.
