Fire Alarms

Installation & Maintenance

An essential step in fire safety management, FCS are fire alarm experts

Fire alarms are a critical part of fire safety and are required in most buildings in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRO).  FCS will work with you to complete a fire risk assessment which will specify which fire alarm system is required in accordance with British Standards. The type of fire alarm system depends on the building structure, the purpose and use of the building and current legislation.

Fire Compliance Services can offer our clients the peace of mind that we are 3rd Party Accredited under the BAFE SP203-1 Scheme for the Design, Installation, Commissioning/Handover and Maintenance of Fire Detection and Alarm Systems.

We can assist you with all your fire alarm needs ranging from full design and installation, fire alarm commissioning, fire alarm upgrades and periodic maintenance.

  • Fire Alarm Systems Design and Installation

    Before a fire alarm system can be designed the building risk must be assessed and a category of system must be specified. This is usually determined by the authority responsible for enforcing the fire safety legislation or by a fire risk assessment. Once a fire alarm category has been confirmed Fire Compliance Services design and install a fire alarm system to meet your requirements and budgets in accordance with British Standards BS 5839.
  • Fire Alarm Commissioning

    Our fire alarm commissioning service involves our fire safety experts thoroughly testing an installed alarm system, to ensure it operates correctly in accordance with BS 5839.
  • Fire Alarm Maintenance

    Fire alarm systems should be serviced at least every 6 months in accordance with BS5839. With the enforcement of the Fire Safety Order 2005, the person responsible for the building has a legal obligation to ensure that regular servicing and maintenance of your fire alarm system is undertaken. It will also give you assurance that your fire alarm equipment will work when it is needed most. More info on what FCS do?
  • Smoke Vent Testing

    Commonly installed in residential apartment blocks to keep escape and access routes free from smoke, this is an important part of any fire safety strategy. We can provide service and maintenance of smoke ventilation systems as well as upgrades and repairs.
  • Fire Alarm Zone Charts

    It is a requirement under BS 5839 to have a schematic fire alarm zone chart fitted locally to your fire alarm control panel. We can survey and produce a professional framed fire alarm zone chart to ensure that your system is compliant.
  • Aspiration Systems

    An aspiration detection system is a highly sensitive form of fire detection that can detect a fire at an early stage. The system takes samples of the air and tests them for the presence of smoke. FCS can survey and install to meet your specialist requirements.
  • Radio Fire Alarm Systems

    Often called wireless fire alarm systems, radio waves are used to relay the signal from the control panel and input devices such as manual call points and detectors, with output devices such as audible sounders visual beacons and relays. More info on what FCS do?
  • Fire Alarm Monitoring

    If there is a fire alarm activation or a fault within the system our dedicated alarm receiving centre will alert the relevant key holders and local Fire and Rescue Service, often before you know there is a problem.
  • Fire Safety Signage

    Our quick and easy signage solutions will guide you through what signage to, ensuring you are regulation compliant. Durability and clarity are the key factors when it comes to our fire safety signage services.
