Addressable Fire Systems
Addressable fire systems provide the user with detailed information and control, helping to reduce false alarms and maintenance costs.
Conventional Fire Systems
Conventional fire alarm equipment is typically cheaper than other types making it the most cost effective solution, for smaller premises, where a Grade A or B system has been specified.
Wireless Fire Systems
Wireless fire alarms offer a solution where the installation of cables is impractical, due to either building structure or inconvenient disruption to your business.
Mains Smoke Detectors
We reccommend interlinked mains smoke detectors in domestic premises. (subject to a fire risk assessment.) The cost can be significantly less than any of the other options.
