Fire alarms for the hotel sector
Working in hotels means that we have to exercise our ability to work discreetly. When installing and maintaining fire alarm systems so that these large commercial properties are safe, it’s important that our team goes undetected by guests and that we work during times when disruption will be kept to a minimum. Our team of excellent engineers has over 30 years of working in this sector, with many of our clients returning to us for our services. We’re experts at designing, installing, commissioning, and maintaining fire alarm systems. We will inspect your commercial property and decide on the best systems to keep your building safe.
How we increase fire safety in your hotel
Due to our experience in working in the hotel sector, we have developed processes during our working day that we use. As it’s important that we don’t disturb guests, the majority of our work needs to be done during the day when most guests will be out of the hotel. We use similar processes when working in care homes and the schools and colleges sector, making sure we don’t disturb people where we can help it. We work respectfully, creating minimal amounts of mess and always cleaning up after ourselves. Whatever approach our client requests is the one we will take – this includes obtaining accreditations. We also have a 24/7 call out service. This means that once your system is installed, you can call on us at any time if you have something urgent that needs to be completed.

What is the best fire alarm system for the hotel sector?
There are four main types of fire alarm systems that you could find applicable for your hotel. Which one will be used is down the characteristics of your building, as well as your priorities. If you would like to minimise the appearance of wires, for example, this will impact which system should be installed.
Conventional fire alarm systems
A conventional fire alarm system has all the zones linked to the central control panel on its own circuit. This is a brilliant cost-effective option.
Addressable fire alarm systems
This system uses intelligent technology and links all devices to the control panel on just one circuit. This allows it to identify the detector which has activated and makes it highly reliable.
Wireless fire alarm systems
Communicating between devices and the control panel via a wireless connection, this system can be useful for preserving the aesthetic of your property.
Hybrid fire alarm systems
A hybrid system allows your building to have a mixture of fire alarm systems. A blend of wired and wireless systems can be used across multiple properties, creating a sophisticated system.
What else can we do for you?
Installation and fire alarm system maintenance aren’t where our services stop. In fact, we can provide anything pertaining to fire safety. It goes without saying that you’ll need fire extinguishers scattered around your hotel. We can provide these and then ensure they are serviced within your maintenance plan. We also carry out fire alarm commissioning and testing. Within this service, we can train your employees to test your fire alarm systems to ensure the safety of your hotel between maintenance visits. Regular testing is very important in the hotel sector.

A fire safety risk assessment in sleeping accommodation environments
Working in sensitive areas such as sleeping accommodation, our engineers know how to work respectfully and will utilise their skills to complete the service without disruption. In hotels, there are so many factors that could present a fire risk. It’s imperative to conduct a fire risk assessment before our team at Fire Systems Services designs your systems. Our Fire Risk Assessor is a Graduate of The Institution of Fire Engineers (GIFireE), ensuring nothing is overlooked. Our skills are all you will need for excellent fire safety. We are fully qualified and have the relevant accreditations to ensure that your services are carried out effectively – you’re in safe hands.

The in-depth details
Communication with our client
To determine what service would be best for Ashridge House, we conducted a site survey with the client. We visited Ashridge House, inspected the buildings and systems that were going to need maintenance and were able to decide on an approach that was bespoke to our client. This collaboration allowed us to find out exactly what our client needed, and our site survey meant our maintenance engineers knew what systems they would be working with.
