At Essential Group, our specialist team can deliver intelligent, cost-effective fire detection solutions for properties of all types and size from schools, offices, warehouses and sports facilities to hospitals, shops, heritage buildings and more.
We don’t work on a generic, one size fits all approach. Our highly skilled and experienced engineers work to design and install a tailored system that fulfils the exact needs of your environment and meets current legislation to ensure a safe, compliant property.
Why is Fire Detection so Important?
Fire detection is an integral part of safety and for very good reason. If left undetected, fires can spread rapidly, potentially causing irreversible harm to human lives and untold damage to the premises.
If you own, manage or are responsible for a business, property or building then you need to take the necessary fire safety precautions in order to ensure that the people who live, work or visit there are safe.
This includes almost all types of buildings, structures and premises, except individual private homes including private flats within a block. Shared areas of HMO’s, maisonettes and blocks of flats however do fall under the responsibility of the property manager.
Having an effective fire detection system EFin place is important in order to;
- Comply with relevant legislation
- Notify those inside that there is a fire, giving them time to evacuate safely
- Detect fire at the earliest signs, helping to save lives and notify the fire department for a faster response
- Reduce the amount of potential damage and disruption caused by the fire
- Save money from reduced insurance costs.
At Essential Group, we design, install, commission, and maintain fire detection systems in North London that not only benefit residents and employees, but protect those responsible for the property from being held liable for failing to implement proper fire prevention.
Is Fire Prevention a Legal Requirement?
Fire alarm regulations form part of ‘The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005’, known as the ‘RRO’. In addition to this, the UK government also recommends that all fire alarm and detection systems should be installed and maintained in line with the relevant British Standard – BS 5839.
Appropriate fire detection and alarm systems are a legal requirement for all businesses in the UK and should effectively detect an outbreak of a fire and alert everybody within the property of the imminent danger.
At Essential Group our BAFE certified installers deliver effective fire protection solutions that can be fully integrated with other systems such as intruder alarms, access control and fire suppression, for an efficient and reliable system you can count on.
