An Accredited Fire Alarm System Design and Installation Service
Fire protection is essential to any home or business to ensure the safety of individuals and minimize risks. The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 outlines the fire safety obligations of every business, reliable and secure fire protection can help as leading technologies catch the earliest signs of fire before serious risks are established.
Nurse Call Solutions partner with King Communications & Security to provide Nursing and Residential Care Home Fire Alarm Systems. We have many years experience providing expertise in the design and installation of fire solutions working with larger care groups as well as Scottish independent homes. We have also been involved the deployment of systems with tight integration of systems including Fire Alarms, CCTV, Access Control and also to link into Public Address for evacuation messaging.
Most Fire Alarm systems are now specified as Addressable which allows emergency services to establish quickly the detection device that is in an alarmed state. Each device on the system is given a unique address that can then be translated into a location by the Fire Alarm Panel. Some smaller installations still utilise non-addressable systems.
The defacto monitoring standard for Fire Alarm monitoring is now BT Redcare. This service is provided by an accredited Alarm Receiving Centre and allows notification of an alarm event but also more importantly when the line is no longer available. Redcare will 'PING' the line every few seconds to ensure that it is available. If not, then an alarm condition will be generated.
Please note you do not need to contact BT for this service. Nurse Call Solutions will provide this as part of the installation and will test. There is, however, a setup and annual monitoring fee.
