Fire Alarm Systems: Pricing and Process

Pricing and Process of Fire Alarms

When does your installation need testing?

BS 5839 suggests you need your Fire Alarm System testing every 6 months to ensure it is compliant with all regulation and for best practice. It is also recommended to have a fire warden on site at all times in case of emergency. AEL have 4 fire wardens to cover each zone with our emergency plan wherever we can fit one. Fire Alarms are typically powered by a central system, powered by the building power with a battery backup. Without the right alarms, they could either give a false alarm or not sound at all in an emergency.

Why is it so important?

  • 38% of battery operated smoke alarms did not sound during a fire due to missing, flat or disconnected batteries.
  • Fire causes around 200 deaths in the UK annually.
  • With working alarms you are 4 times more likely to come out unscathed, as are any clients or staff.
  • You can find out more at First Alert.

How do we price this?

Quotations can vary depending on the type of system you have, the quantity and demand your particular alarms and how long you’ve used AEL. As always, the longevity of the job will be considered due to man hours. For multiple service packages and multiple sites we tend to offer saving and discount, offering brilliant value for money.
