The appropriate installation and integration of a regulatory fire alarm system can help save lives and prevent far-spread damage to your building. A commercial alarm system can be chosen based on several factors, such as the structure of the building, location and current legislative requirements.

We at Virtus Security aim to prioritise the safety of the inhabitants of your building, whether you manage a small company office or a wide-scale corporation. With our BAFE SP203-1 accreditation, the Virtus team are capable of working within both private and commercial sectors to provide unique and efficient solutions that benefit your business while ensuring that your costs don’t run too high.

Our commercial fire alarm installation services include:

  • Aspiration detection systems. ADS systems are imperative for active fire protection, using a central detection unit to draw air through a network of pipes to detect smoke levels. These systems are extremely sensitive to smoke so an ideal solution for quick detection of high value equipment.
  • Conventional fire alarm systems. Most commonly used for smaller properties, conventional systems will be hardwired into “zones” whereby upon activation of a detector or MCP, a zonal LED on the control panel will indicate the local area of fire.
  • Addressable fire alarm systems. Addressable refers to a unique address of each fitted detection device. So unlike a conventional system, an addressable system can pinpoint the exact location of a fire.
  • Emergency lighting. An essential for ensuring safe evacuation, emergency lights automatically come on when the power supply to the normal lighting system fails. It is also possible to install emergency lighting that remains functional for 24 hours a day while running on a lower energy input.
  • Fire risk assessment. This service involves the systematic evaluation of factors which may pose a fire hazard within and outside of a building. The process assesses the likelihood of a fire occurring and the steps that would need to be taken if one were to happen.
  • Wireless fire alarm systems. Another popular choice for Fire alarm system installations, wireless fire alarms are incredibly sophisticated pieces of technology. They rely on the transmission of radio signals from call points and heat or smoke detectors to the fire alarm control panel. The major advantages of wireless is the lack of cabling so not only a perfect solution for delicate properties such as historic sites but a greater saving in installation costs.
