Fire Alarm Systems

Fire alarm systems for your business

80% of all businesses fail within 18 months of a major incident such as a fire. A fire alarm system is an incredibly effective way to protect your business from the devastating consequences of a fire. As a responsible employer, you have a duty to protect your employees, and as a business owner, you must ensure that you have ‘an appropriate fire detection system’ in your place of business. The legislation surrounding fire safety can be complex, but it is vitally important that your fire safety is correct according to the latest regulations; the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, as well as the Fire Safety Act 2021. When you come to Pro-Guard Security we will work with you to ensure that your fire alarm systems are up to the regulations and suitable for your business needs.

Fire alarm systems save lives

A fire alarm system is an early detection system. Without a fire alarm system in place, a fire could spread rapidly through unused areas of your building, gaining rapidly without being detected. A professionally installed fire alarm system will provide an instant warning of a fire breaking out. This quick response will give people time to get out of the building. Fire alarm systems form part of the fire safety for your business. You must have a fire risk assessment for your business, and this will highlight how you can protect your business, and the people within it, in the event of a fire. Your fire alarm system must be professionally installed as where the units are located will make all the difference to how rapidly they detect a fire. In serious events such as a fire, even a few minutes can make all the difference.
