Fire Alarm System Design


Fire alarms in the UK are typically designed to the BS 5839 series of documents. However, there are a range of type of system available and different options for the extent (L1, L2, M, P1, P2) of detection, category of smoke detection (optical, heat, beam, aspirating) and types of alarm (sounders or voice alarm).

Almost all types of building need some type of fire alarm system and it is essential to ensure that the fire alarm, detection and warning system are specified correctly to reduce the risk of late changes being required to the system.

IFC are experts in all areas of fire safety and can assist in the design and specification of all types of fire alarm system.
