Fire alarms for the construction sector
Working in construction often comes with different regulations than working in properties that are already established. Here at Fire Systems Services, we know how to work in line with these regulations and our projects always go off without a hitch. We have the technology to suit this sector, such as detection devices that are more suitable for sites with high ceilings. We work with both wired and wireless systems, meaning no matter what route is best for your construction project, we can provide the solution. The best thing is, after we have designed your fire alarm system, we’re the experts to come to for your installation, commissioning, and maintenance. What could be better than having all your fire safety needs met in the same place?
How we can increase fire safety in construction
Our experience in working in the construction sector has given us valuable processes that we can carry into your project. We will design your fire alarm system according to the consultant’s specification. This information means that we can design with the possible risks of the building in mind, increasing the fire safety for those who will be inside. Our flexibility means that whatever timings work best for your construction project, we can work to them. If this means we carry out work out of hours, we’re happy to do this. We work respectfully and in collaboration with your requirements, cleaning up after ourselves and leaving your space how it needs to be for further construction.
Construction projects: Which system will be the most effective?
Depending on what your property will be used for and its characteristics, there are multiple fire alarm system options that you could benefit from. Our team designs the entire system, so you can rest assured that your property will have a bespoke, reliable system that benefits from our extensive experience.
Conventional fire alarm systems
Conventional alarm systems link every zone to the control panel on its own circuit. This option is cost-effective and brilliant for smaller areas.
Addressable fire alarm systems
With more sophisticated technology, addressable systems link every device to the control panel on the same circuit. This is highly effective within large commercial properties.
Wireless fire alarm systems
A wireless system operates from a wireless network, with devices and the control panel communicating without the labour and cost of wiring.
Hybrid fire alarm systems
Hybrid alarm systems allow wired systems to communicate with wireless ones. This is effective for sites with multiple areas that have different requirements.
How else can we boost your fire safety?
Our services don’t stop at the installation of your fire alarm systems. From here, we can commission them to ensure that everything is functioning as it is designed, comparing its processes against the fire risk assessment and specification. We offer service agreements, helping you to maintain your systems so that you can have peace of mind that they are fully functioning and will alert you in the event of a fire. We offer servicing to your fire extinguishers within your service plan, as well as fire alarm testing and training to teach you how to do this yourself. We’re the company to come to for anything you need to guarantee your safety from a fire in your building.

The in-depth details
Communication with our client
To determine exactly what work should be carried out at Cambourne Business Park, our client supplied us with a specification with all the details about the property that we would need in order to design a reliable system. From this specification, we were able to design an addressable alarm system that suited the possible risks of the property. This means that the client’s alarm system is as effective as it can be, making effective use of the amount of detail we were given.
