Fire Alarms Ayrshire

Fire Alarm Systems fall broadly in to two groups - Conventional Systems or Analogue Addressable Systems.

'Conventional' Fire Alarm Systems, in their various forms, have been around for many years and have changed little in that time in terms of technology although design and reliability have improved significantly. However, Conventional Systems are a well-proven technology protecting many hundreds of thousands of properties worldwide. A Conventional Fire Alarm System is often the natural choice for smaller systems or where budget constraints exist.

In a typical Conventional Fire Alarm System the 'intelligence' of the system resides solely within the Fire Alarm Control Panel which receives a trigger signal from a Conventional Detector or Call Point and in turn, signals the condition to other devices such as alarm sounders and remote signalling equipment.

Conventional detectors are normally connected to the Fire Control Panel via dedicated circuits, each circuit protecting a designated 'Zone' or 'Area' of the building (the maximum size of which will often be governed by local standards). Detectors have two states, Normal-healthy and Alarm.

The Fire Control Panel will normally be arranged in a set number of Zones or Circuits e.g. 1, 2, 4, 8 etc. and have 2 separate sounder circuits.

Automatic Opening Vents (AOV) are a crucial part of any fire prevention solution due to the damage caused by smoke and the obvious effects on occupants and fire crews should they have to enter a building. At Fortress Security we provide complete Smoke Ventilation Solutions right through from  design concept to installation and maintenance. As with all our previous installations every AOV solution is carried out under current legislation regarding fire safety.

Ventilation - In 2006, many changes were made by the authorities that now affect every home and business in the UK.

In relation to commercial premises the  Fire Brigade previously offered assistance and would issue a “ fire safety certificate”, however this is no longer the case. It is now the owner, proprietor or Director's responsibility. Smoke ventilation is an important part of any fire safety strategy and at Fortress Security, we handle all aspects of this for our clients and ensure you conform with current regulations..

Fire stopping relates to the systems put in place to ensure the fire resistance of walls, floors and roofs where gaps exist and after services and wiring has been installed. All our technicians at Fortress Security are fully trained in all the latest products and techniques relating to fire stopping.

Fire suppression within buildings relies on the use of such systems as water mist and fog to suppress the spread of fire. At Fortress Security we have installed and are able to offer numerous systems based on the latest regulated forms of suppression.

Dry Riser & Servicing - Wet and Dry Risers play an integral role in fire protection equipment. Responsible for delivering the initial protection against a fire these critical pieces of equipment should be regularly maintained. Here at Fortress Security our technicians service and maintain systems for our clients ensuring they are in perfect working order and have not been the victim of neglect or vandalism. Under current regulations we ensure a six monthly visual check and an annual pressure test is carried out.
