The main reason for fire safety regulations is to prevent a fire occurring in a building, however there is always a chance a fire may start. A correctly designed fire alarm system provides early warning to occupants that allows them to escape from the building quickly and safely.
As an independent fire company Fireskills are not tied to any manufacture, which allows us to source the best equipment currently available at the best prices.
Fireskills can design, install, commission and repair all types of fire-alarm systems. We have a team of fully trained fire alarm engineers who work in accordance with BS 5839.
To discuss how Fireskills can help your business with designing and installing a new Fire Alarm system, or testing and servicing an existing system please telephone 0845 652 2100.
Fireskills were instructed to complete a Fire Risk Assessment on a period house in Twickenham, that had been converted into individual flats in the 1960’s. At the time of the original conversion it had been fitted with an external wooden escape staircase which was now in disrepair and required replacement.
The Fire Risk Assessment completed by Fireskills identified that the building required a fire alarm system and that an additional escape staircase was not needed.
Quotes for a replacement staircase had identified costs in excess of £10,000, however the fire alarm system was designed, supplied and fitted with a total cost of less than £3,000.
This also allowed the client to take down a dangerous and unattractive external staircase!
