As well as Fire Safety Assessments and Consultancy, Total Fire Services can also provide you with the products you need to ensure your premises remain legally compliant. As with all our services, we’ll provide you with a free, no obligation consultation to ensure we meet the specific needs of your premises.
However, it’s vital that you ensure your fire risk assessment is conducted or reviewed prior to any new or an extension of the fire alarm and emergency lighting systems are undertaken. We will be able to determine that the correct systems are installed for both life and property protection.
All fire alarm systems work on the principle: that if heat or smoke is detected, or a manual alarm is activated (such as a glass break point), the fire alarm will sound as a warning to evacuate.
Deploying an effective fire alarm system forms an essential part of any fire safety policy and as with all aspects of fire safety, there are both legally required regulations and more general ‘best practice’ guidelines to follow for their effective use.
Through our associate fire alarm and emergency lighting company Total Fire Services, offer a range of Fire Alarm Systems and can advise you as to the most appropriate system for your premises during the fire risk assessment process:
Multiple sensors in designated zones are managed through a control panel which allows you to quickly establish the general area where a fire has occurred, allowing effective management of an emergency situation.
Similar to a conventional system, but the control panel allows you to identify exactly which sensor or device i.e. call point has detected the fire, allowing you to pinpoint the point of origin.
Also known as Intelligent Fire Alarm Systems, the aim of these alarms is to reduce the incidence of false alarms and they can incorporate a range of sensor types within a single area, including heat detectors, smoke detectors and call points. Information from these sensors is then fed to a computer within the control panel which assesses whether the sensor has been activated due to a fire, fault, pre-alarm or even simply because the sensor needs cleaning.
Our partner can manage the full installation, training and maintenance of your fire alarm system.
Emergency lighting provides mains powered and battery-operated lighting which is specifically designed to illuminate during an emergency situation, or indeed any situation where the power fails. It is a requirement for the majority of publically-accessible buildings, including shops, leisure facilities, offices, schools and colleges, as well as for multi-occupancy residential premises, such as high rise flats. In certain premises such as licensed premises the emergency lighting is designed to be permanently lit.
Strict guidelines surround emergency lighting, such as the need for it to be fully automated, and for it to provide minimum levels of brightness to ensure people of all ages can see and negotiate escape routes and exits clearly.
Through our associate fire alarm and emergency lighting company Total Fire Services can offer your organisation a full portfolio of emergency lighting which meets all current standards, and can undertake full installation and maintenance to ensure your premises are compliant with current regulations.
Total Fire Services are proud to be the North West’s leading provider of Fire Alarm Maintenance to Bolton, Rochdale, Wigan, St Helens, Liverpool and Preston.
What they say
"Due to internal resource issues we at Chessington World Of Adventures were struggling to meet our commitments of having "suitable and sufficient" fire risk assessment for all of our buildings and Rides on site. Meeting the challenge of maintaining our continued commitment to having "suitable and sufficient" fire risk assessments in place for all of our buildings and Rides on site required us to search for a competent third party supplier who could deliver our needs at a reasonable cost"
