Helping your business meet its legal obligations

UK HSE regulations require business owners to put adequate fire detection systems in place at their premises.

“Where necessary in order to safeguard the safety of the relevant persons the responsible person must ensure that the premises & any facilities, equipment and devices provided in respect of the premises under this Order…are subject to a suitable system of maintenance & are maintained in an efficient state, in effect working order & in good repair:”

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Act 2005 Part 2, Article 17

“The responsible person must ensure that the premises are, to the extent that is appropriate, equipped with the appropriate fire-fighting equipment and with fire detectors and alarms”

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Act 2005 Part 2, Article 13

What systems are available?

Midland Fire have been helping protect businesses from fire for 20 years. Services include system design, supply, installation and commission. There are several types of system available. We work with you to design a system that suits your needs and meets your budget:

Conventional and Addressable Fire Alarms

There are two main types of fire alarm system, conventional and addressable. Both types of system connect to a central control panel however with addressable systems you can pinpoint the exact device that has been activated – And the location of the fire. A conventional system can be divided into zones, however each alarm has its own wiring connection to the panel – This makes a conventional system more suitable for smaller premises.

In an addressable system, all of the alarms are connected in a loop, the wiring is less complex with only two connections to the control panel. An addressable system is more cost effective for larger businesses. If one end is damaged the signal can still reach the control panel via the other end of the loop. if one device becomes disconnected it wont disable the circuit. This type of system is more suitable for larger premises.

Aspirated Fire Alarms

Aspirated and Wireless fire alarms are ideal for difficult to reach places. For example an Aspirated system is prefered for hard to reach places – like the top of a lift shaft. The system consists of a central detection unit which draws air through a network of pipes to detect smoke – this removes the need to access the detection point at the top of the lift shaft for maintenance.

Wireless Fire Alarms

Wireless systems work best in situations where there are restrictions on modification to an existing structure like in listed buildings or schools. A wireless solution removes the need to run cables through walls.

Planned Maintenance

To keep your fire alarm functioning Midland Fire offer all customers a Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) Service.

A service includes a complete system health check including panels, wiring and audible/visual warning devices. Up to date documentation is provided to ensure compliance with the latest standards.
