FIRE ALARM DETECTIONFire Alarms

First Response Fire Safety UK Ltd can provide you with the correct fire alarm system for your individual building requirements from design stages to installation and commissioning of the system. An automatic fire alarm system is designed to detect the unwanted presence of a fire by monitoring environmental changes associated with combustion. In general, a fire alarm system is classified as either automatically activated, manually activated or both. We can also service your system at regular intervals as recommended in the British Standard   code of practice (BS5839 -12002).

FIRE PROOFING

Ask yourself this question. Is your building at risk from the spread of fire?

If so, the answer could be single application of a fire retardant  liquid on your curtains upholstery and carpets and a range of fire protective products such as fire blankets and fire extinguishers. This will ensure that your building will be safe for years to  come. Because of new regulations, buildings that are for public use must  adhere to set guidelines that are administered by the local fire chief.  These guidelines must be followed to ensure that the safety of your building  meets British Standards.

We can spray all types of fabric, material, curtains upholstery and  carpets such as curtains, stage-curtains, cotton drapes, rugs, canvas,  carpets, hessian, upholstery, furniture, decorations, stage scenery, textiles,  paper, and (natural wood untreated) and ( wooden blinds natural untreated)

EMERGENCY LIGHTING

emergency lighting

An    emergency light is a battery powered device that comes on automatically   when a building experiences a power outage. The batteries are kept   charged by the buildings mains power supply. There are two main types of   emergency lighting, firstly the “maintained” unit which remains   illuminated and works via the mains. Should the mains power fail, this   unit will stay illuminated for at least 1 to 3 hours. The second type is   the “non maintained” unit which is not ordinarily illuminated but will   illuminate should the mains power fail.

We are able to supply and   install both types in line with your properties requirements ensuring   you comply with the guidance of your fire risk assessment. We can also   provide you with the required maintenance of these products which should   conform to the current British Standard BS5266 & BS5588 providing   two visits per annum.

FIRE RISK ASSESSMENTS

risk assessmentUnder the New Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which became Law on   the 1st October 2006, it is now mandatory to undertake a written fire   risk assessment and to maintain this as a fully working document. Risk   assessments should be carried out annually. The working document should   be updated in the event of any changes to your premises.

We can   undertake your fire risk assessment and provide you with a written   report inclusive of our F.R.A.M.S document. We understand from working   with our customers that this document can be daunting to work with and   address therefore we offer as part of our service relevant guidance on   how to work with the document and its recommendations in the most cost   effective way whilst ensuring you are in compliance.

“Thank you very much for the quick turnaround for preparing the report and getting it to us in time for our Audit. I even had time to put the actions onto our continuous improvement plan.  The auditor was complimentary and commented on the thoroughness of the report. I agreed with him.”
