Fire Alarms Save Lives and Businesses

Fire Alarms save lives and property

All commercial buildings are legally required to have a basic level of fire protection. Poorly fitted designs with sub-standard components are a dangerous false economy.

False Alarms cost money

More and more fire brigades are starting to charge businesses for call outs caused by false alarms.

Having a Fire Alarm is a legal requirement

Under UK law it is a requirement for businesses to have a compliant and maintained fire alarm, installed by a ‘competent person’.  Our professional accreditations give you that peace of mind.

Fire alarms – legal requirements for Kent businesses

It is a legal requirement for businesses in Kent and the rest of the UK to have a basic level of fire protection. This should be in the form of fire alarms and detection equipment. The entire system needs to meet industry standards. And it also must be maintained to a certain level.

Many business owners don’t have the time to deal with this.

You are responsible for Fire Safety. Find all the information you need here

Then there is a fire during the night. You arrive the following morning to find your premises have been destroyed. Your stock and the building are insured. But what about any employees?

That’s when you understand why there are so many regulations about fire alarms.

Fire safety is crucial whatever your premises. We can provide guidance about the best systems for:

  • warehouses
  • factories
  • arenas
  • offices
  • office blocks
  • shops
  • hotels
  • blocks of flats

It doesn’t matter whether your business is based in the cities and towns of Kent like Sevenoaks, Rochester, Chatham, Canterbury, Bromley or Dover or in a more rural community. We can design the best system to suit your needs.

We can supply and install fire detection equipment like:

  • smoke detectors
  • heat detectors
  • manual call points to alert people to the existence of fire or
  • fire alarm panels

Spy Alarms, Kent-based BAFE and FIA approved fire alarms installers, have the system to suit the requirements of your building.

Our fire alarms and detection equipment complies with BS 5839-1:2002 standards. Your fire alarm system is designed to meet your particular specification. They are installed by fully trained engineers.

Why Fire Alarms Monitoring is important for businesses

Your fire alarms can be linked to our Central Monitoring Station.

Is your business in a complex or row of shops on the high street? If fire breaks out at your neighbour’s premises, you’ll be glad he invested in a monitored fire alarm. The fire brigade will be alerted far more quickly than if you wait for the alarm to be raised.

All our fire alarms and detection systems are UKAS approved. Our compliance can be shown through our quality control and health and safety management system.

Fire Alarm System Maintenance

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states:
