Fire Alarm Installations
The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 states that the occupants of a building should be able to leave in relative safety during the outbreak of a fire. A professionally designed, installed and maintained fire alarm system is a means to give early warning of fire and is essential for ensuring a safe evacuation is achieved.
Fire Alarm, Design, Installation and Maintenance
Our Fire Alarm Engineer will survey your building and discuss the requirements of your system with you. Based on these requirements, the system will then be designed to BS 5839 then passed back to you for your approval. Once the design has been agreed, the fire alarm will be installed and commissioned to the approved standards by our professional team.
From February 2021, the law in Scotland will change regarding the provision of fire and smoke alarm for all households. The changes require:
- One smoke alarm installed in the room most frequently used for general daytime living.
- One smoke alarm in every circulation space on each storey, such as hallways and landings
- One heat alarm installed in every kitchen.
All alarms should be ceiling mounted and interlinked. There is also a requirement for carbon monoxide detectors to be fitted where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance (such as boilers, fires, open fires heaters and stoves) or a flue.
Bravo2 Fire Solutions can help with all domestic and non-domestic fire alarm requirements.
Emergency lighting is designed to come into operation automatically in the event of a power failure and is an important part of the fire safety provision for your building which should not be overlooked. There is a legal requirement for all non-domestic buildings to be safe at all times, which means almost all such buildings must have emergency lighting fitted. Our experienced electricians will ensure the emergency lighting system we design, install and maintain for your building is fully compliant to BS 5266-1:2016.
