We offer a full Fire Alarm Package, from Installation to Maintenance and Testing.
PP Electrical offer a wide range of Fire Alarm systems in Telford, Shrewsbury & surrounding areas, that are design and installed to the latest British Standards. Below are some of the different types of systems that we can offer.
Conventional Fire Alarm systems are the entry level for most small to medium type properties. Upon activation of a smoke detector or device the panel will show a LED as a zone within the building and will indicate an area where the device is located. On site staff or the fire services would then have to search for the exact location of the device or detector. The sounders or bells will activate signalling staff to evacuate the building.
An Addressable System is more intelligent and of higher specification than a Conventional System it will be able to provide the user or fire services with an exact location and information of the device that has activated. The systems can be programmed to suit all customers’ requirements offering phased evacuation of larger properties, with sounders operating within zones etc if required.
Options for all Fire Systems
PP Electrical can offer remote fire monitoring for all new and customers existing systems, this equipment connects to a manned call centre that are on call 24hours a day and 365 a year. When a alarm is generated they will act on the customers protocol e.g call the Fire Services, Key Holders, Security company etc
Many insurance companies require this service for commercial & industrial premises.
