After spending the best part of the last two decades installing hardwired fire alarm systems in Bristol and the surrounding areas, it’s fair to say that we know a thing or two.

With a plethora of systems on the market all with varying capabilities in terms of intelligence and user functions as well as numerous wiring methods, the saying horses for courses has never been truer.

The main fire alarm systems you will come across are as follows.

  • Conventional Fire alarms
  • Addressable Fire alarms
  • Analogue Addressable Fire alarms
  • Wireless fire alarms
  • Mains interlinked fire alarms

The Main system manufacturers that we would recommend are as follows.

  • Advanced
  • Kentec
  • EMS
  • C-Tec
  • Morley IAS
  • Fike
  • HAES

Depending on the setting and occupancy of the building there are various solutions that may suit, however we would always recommend that a fire risk assessment be carried out by a reputable company before going ahead with any installations. By doing this you will ensure that the correct system is being installed and that all fire safety requirements for the building are being met. Once the fire risk assessment has being completed this can then be issued to any companies quoting for the works who will specify the systems based on issued report.

One thing that has really pushed the fire and security industry on over the last few years has been the emergence of wireless fire alarm systems. With the technology becoming ever more reliable and meeting all the necessary fire regulations, these systems are fast becoming an industry and customer favourite. With reduced installation times this means a saving on cost as well as a far less intrusive installation. A large number of the fire alarms we install in Bristol are for HMO sites in Clifton and Redland. Once upon a time we would have been on site for 4-5 days with access to almost the whole building required to lift floor boards and run cables. Now days with a wireless equivalent we can be in and out within one day and minimal fuss. Once installed the EMS wireless fire alarms are relatively low maintenance as the batteries in each of the units lasts for a period of up to 4-5 years.

Here at Omega Fire and Security Ltd we pride ourselves on using industry leading technology to ensure that all your assets are well protected. When it comes to wireless fire alarms we are no different, with the EMS range of equipment being our system of choice.
