Types of commercial fire alarm systems

Commercial fire alarm systems are designed to detect fires early in their development, allowing for the safe evacuation of occupants and minimising property damage. These systems can vary in complexity based on the size and type of the building, as well as the specific needs of the occupants. Here are the primary types of commercial fire alarm systems:

Wired fire alarm systems

These systems utilise physical cables to connect fire alarm components. They are reliable due to direct connections and ideal for buildings under construction or undergoing major renovations.

Wireless fire alarm systems

Our experts professionally install fire extinguishers, whether wall-mounted or on stands, ensuring visibility and easy access during emergencies.

Hybrid fire alarm systems

A combination of wired and wireless components, hybrid fire alarm systems offer flexibility in installation and expansion. They can be tailored to specific building needs, leveraging the strengths of both systems.

Addressable fire alarm systems

Addressable fire alarm systems are typically used in larger buildings or complexes for precise monitoring. Each device has a unique address, allowing pinpoint identification of activated components. This enables faster response to incidents and easier maintenance.

Non-addressable fire alarm systems

Non-addressable fire alarm systems are simpler and more cost-effective but less precise than addressable systems. Devices are connected in zones without individual identification. When activated, only the zone is identified, not the specific devic

Standalone fire alarm systems

These systems operate independently without connection to other systems. Standalone fire alarm systems are common in residential settings. Alerts are typically localised, and the system doesn’t communicate with a central monitoring station.

Networked fire alarm systems

Multiple fire alarm systems interconnected, often across buildings or sites. Networked fire alarm systems allow centralised monitoring and control. They are ideal for campuses, large corporations, or facilities with multiple structures.
