Conventional fire alarm systems
The hardware associated with a conventional fire alarm tends to be much cheaper than the other types of alarm, however, they are more challenging to install. They require more wiring, which in turn means more time is needed from the fire alarm installation team.
A conventional system won’t be able to tell you the precise location of the fire; however, if they are wired correctly, they will be able to divide your premises into zones.
This means they can still be used as a cost-effective solution even in premises with multiple floors or areas if the arrangement is simple. However, we wouldn’t recommend them for more complex buildings.
Addressable fire alarm systems
Addressable alarm systems are more sophisticated than the more basic conventional type. Every device connected to the addressable system has its own unique address – hence the name.
This means that when a fire is detected, the fire alarm control panel can tell you exactly which device has been activated. The panel will also show whether it’s a detector or a call point. This, in turn, means you have more chance of locating the fire and putting it out quickly.
While addressable systems cost a little more, they can be easier to install than conventional systems as all the devices are connected to one wire ‘loop’, rather than by individual cables.
They also have the potential to save your business money over time as they reduce false alarms and are more effective in the case of an actual fire. They are worth considering for any commercial building that is a little more complex.
Wireless fire alarm systems
Wireless fire alarm systems are excellent for premises that need to consider their appearances, such as retail outlets, or property with developments restrictions, such as listed buildings.
As the name suggests, they don’t require cabling, making them quick and straightforward to install.
The most important consideration is the maintenance of the batteries. These need to be frequently checked and replaced if necessary. Some wireless systems use bespoke batteries which are more costly than the standard types you’re used to buying in the shops.
Because of the ongoing cost, we would recommend wireless systems in special cases as mentioned above, or as a temporary fire safety solution where it’s not feasible to install a wired system, such as on building sites.
- Ideal for hard to reach areas
- Fast response on alarms
- Reduces space in your addressable panel but still covers a large area
- Can be installed into any environment
- Consisting of a central detection unit which draws air through a network of pipes to detect smoke. The sampling chamber is based on a nephelometer that detects the presence of smoke particles suspended in the air by detecting the light scattered by them in the chamber. ASDs can typically detect smoke before it is visible to the naked eye.
