A correctly designed and working fire alarm system will give enough warning to save lives and hopefully allow firefighters enough time to limit property damage. Periodic testing backed by regular user checks will ensure that the system effectively protects people and the property. Fire alarm maintenance is very important to maintain the integrity of the system.
Over time, smoke detectors become less sensitive, standby batteries in control panels become weak, and general faults can develop. The sensitivity of detectors on a poorly maintained or neglected fire alarm system may result in the system not going into alarm condition should a fire develop, which could be deadly. Regular checks are an essential part of fire alarm system maintenance. Fire alarm maintenance is a requirement for a local authority fire certificate.
We offer a wide range of fire extinguishers for any eventuality. It is imperative to consider the location of the fire extinguisher before choosing which one to hold in your property.

Frequently asked questions
What's the difference between addressable and non-addressable fire alarm systems?
Addressable and non-addressable (conventional) fire alarm systems differ in how they communicate.
Another difference is how it detects locations of alarms. As convetional alarm systems have multiple devices on a zone, when activated, it will tell you the zone. In other words, you’ll have to check each alarm in a zone to find the cause. Addressable alarm systems have an address assigned to each device. Therefore, when it activates, you can see exactly which alarm is causing the alert.
Cost is difficult to judge. Conventional fire alarms are cheaper to buy, but cost more to install (there’s more wires) Addressable fire alarms are the oppositive, and may balance the costs out in the end. Call us on 0121 386 2639 to get a quote.
Are wireless fire alarm system any good?
Wireless fire alarm systems are great if you’re after a quick installation and flexibility when moving out of your property. They’re also more aesthetically pleasing as they require less wiring.
However, wired fire alarms are better for those who prefer reliability, low maintenance, and a cheaper installation.
How do wireless fire alarm systems work?
Wireless fire alarm systems use a radio signal that is transmitted to the control panel when smoke or heat is detected. The control panel will issue the siren and notify through the panel which fire alarm triggered the alarm.
How often should a fire extinguisher be serviced?
A basic service needs to be completed once every 12 months in accordance with BS 5036-6. This must be performed by a competent person who has the correct tools, knowledge, and experience. Businesses often turn to third-party experts, like Countrywide Security, to help them comply and keep their staff and property safe.
