Fire alarm services in London

A fire alarm system is similar to an insurance policy in a way; another overhead which may stay in situ for years and which you may never need, and then comes along that one time in your working life when there is an emergency and that alarm system had better work!

Fire Alarm servicing and maintenance in LondonThat is why routine fire alarm servicing is imperative for fire detection and protection, indeed, it is crucial for ensuring that your systems remain in good working order and will operate effectively in the event of an emergency.

Your fire alarm system, when working properly, will provide an early warning of fire and adequate visibility within emergency escape routes and exits for building occupants.

Pre-planned maintenance of your fire alarm system

C|S|M, maintenance contractors in London, has a comprehensive fire alarm servicing package which ensures that your systems will be professionally serviced and maintained at the frequencies required by current standards and regulations. C|S|M are able to provide a servicing package tailored to your individual requirements, to ensure your fire detection systems remain fully compliant at all times. It should be considered as part of your commercial maintenance plan.

What types of smoke alarms are available?

Briefly and without being deeply technical, the following are the most used, but it is best to call C|S|M to get a free visit where you can talk this through with the experts.

Ionisation: These are the cheapest and cost very little to purchase.

Optical: More expensive but more effective at detecting larger particles of smoke produced by slow-burning fires, such as smouldering foam-filled upholstery and overheated PVC wiring.

Heat Alarms: They detect the increase in temperature from a fire and are insensitive to smoke.

Combined Optical Smoke and Heat Alarms: Combinations of optical and heat alarms in one unit to reduce false alarms while increasing the speed of detection.

Combined Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Alarms that combine both smoke detection and CO alarm protection in one ceiling-mounted unit. This reduces costs and takes up less space.
